With the advent of new technologies, several parameters can be monitored and measured on site. Moreover, due to the shortcomings of existing sensors, new biosensors and physiochemical sensors are being used. While water quality testing will continue to gain considerable popularity, the adoption of environment testing services is expected to grow in other categories as well, including trace analysis, scientific assessments and reviews, RoHS testing, REACH testing, soil testing, and hazardous material testing. The flourishing industrial and agricultural sectors mainly in developing regions is one of the key factors driving the demand for environment testing services.

Demand for On Site Services Likely to Drop amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The expansion of the global environment testing services market amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is likely to remain lower than usual, as the demand for on site services is expected to witness a steep decline in several regions of the world. The growing emphasis by governments to contain the transmission of the novel coronavirus has resulted in stringent lockdowns and restriction of movement. Therefore, the demand for on site environment testing services has dipped by a considerable margin. However, the decline in on site services has directly impacted the adoption of off site environment testing services.

The management of medical waste is a major problem during the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, many countries are disposing of several tons of clinical trash in a single day. Non-reusable surgical masks, empty hand sanitizer bottles, and solid tissue papers are resulting in a large trail of toxic medical waste. Masks are made of liquid-resistant, plastic-based products that last long even after being discarded, ending up in water or landfill.

In addition, damaged asbestos in houses, construction sites, or at workplaces presents an ongoing health hazard to people at home or working at sites. Asbestos-related diseases affect the respiratory system, which can cause mild to moderate respiratory illness. People suffering from respiratory illness possess a greater risk of being infected with the COVID-19 virus.

Due to these factors, the global environment testing services market is expected to witness moderate growth during the pandemic. However, the market is anticipated to show signs of recovery in the second half of 2020.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The global environment testing services market is expected to expand at a healthy CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. The market growth can be primarily attributed to a host of factors, including emphasis on improving water quality, waste management, and quality of soil. The increasing pollution levels, particularly in the urban regions of the world, will increase the demand for CO2 emission calculation services during the forecast period. Overall, rising investments from the private sector, increasing support from governments, and advancements in technology are thus, expected to play a key role in propelling the environment testing services market during the assessment period.

Environment Testing Services Market: Overview

  • The global environment testing services market value is estimated to be US$ 11.4 Bn in 2020, finds Transparency Market Research (TMR) in a recent study. According to the report, the market is expected to reach US$ 21.4 Bn by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.5%.
  • Water contamination is one of the main causes of waterborne diseases and other health problems. Residues generated by runoff from agricultural fields into a water source, injection of untreated or partially treated wastewater and industrial effluents, and disposal of fly ash or hazardous waste lead to significant problems such as water pollution. Increased water turbidity from sediments reduces light penetration into water, which lowers photosynthesis of aquatic plants. Water testing, therefore, constitutes as an important aspect that drives the segment.
  • Increasing demand from utility building and water supply programs, as well as growing regulatory oversight from local governments, is projected to continue to generate revenue for the Oceania environmental testing services market over the next five years. Businesses will increasingly use industrial services to test hazardous materials in office buildings and construction facilities. In addition, households will use industry facilities to check for asbestos, mold, and other hazardous materials to ensure health and safety.
