Food Testing Kits: Market outlook
Increasing urbanization, market liberalization, growing per capita expenditure of the consumers, and foreign direct investment has led to the globalization of food trade. The globalization of food trade has resulted in greater diversity and availability of food products across the globe which has raised concerns regarding food safety, malnutrition, and diet-related chronic diseases. The increasing safety issues related to food has led to the growing demand for food testing kits. The food testing kits are used for applications including the analysis of the food chemistry like salt, sugar, PH level; food microbiology analysis, food allergen analysis, food toxin analysis, and food quality control determination to evaluate the quality and integrity of the food samples. The food testing kits are used to determine allergens, pathogens, GMO’s, meat species, mycotoxins, and others using technologies like Immunoassay-Based technology, PCR-Based technology, Enzyme Substrate-Based technology, and others. The food testing kits are used to check the samples of a large number of solid and liquid food samples to comply with the standard quality controls.
Increasing Food Borne Diseases and Growing Food Adulteration is Increasing Concern Regarding the Safety of Food Products, hence fuelling the Demand for Food Testing Kits
The globalization of food trade, increasing incidences of foodborne illnesses, growing demand for faster and reliable food test results, enactment of strict food safety regulations, and growing preference for on-site testing are anticipated to drive the growth for the food testing kits market. The increasing urbanization and per capita expenditure of consumers is leading to changing the dietary pattern and increasing demand for packaged and convenience food. The growing demand for packaged and convenience food is accompanied by rising concerns regarding food safety. Hence, the increasing concerns regarding foodborne diseases, malnutrition, and adulteration are anticipated to drive the growth for food testing kits market. Besides, stringent government policies and safety measures have also fuelled the demand for food testing kits. The food processing companies are preferring on-site food testing kits and equipment to test and measure the quality of their samples which is further escalating the demand for food testing kits.
