Global Markets and Technologies for Food Safety Testing
The U.S. market for food-safety testing was valued at $3.3 billion in 2011 and is projected to increase slightly in 2012. In 2017, the market should reach nearly $4.4 billion after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6%.
Global Markets and Technologies for Food Safety Testing organizes information from diverse sources and market segments into a cohesive unit that includes summary, overview, technologies, contaminants tested, foods tested, industry structure, international aspects, patent activity, and company market shares, annual revenues, and profiles. Market measurements/estimates and forecasts are provided for the U.S. markets, and key market dynamics of other major global markets are discussed and their possible effects analyzed. The summary encapsulates the market conclusions and includes a table summarizing the overall U.S. market. The overview provides general information on contaminants and their sources and effects, testing technologies, foods tested, testing sites, and regulatory influences. The following four technology sections detail current and projected (2012 to 2017) market values for contaminants tested, testing technologies, foods tested, and products tested. The industry structure and competitive aspects section discusses the domestic market environment, strategies, and driving forces, while the international aspects section provides general information on the global market. The patent activity section examines 253 patents issued from 2008 through May 2012 and breaks them down into various categories. The company market shares and profiles provide summaries of the leading industry participants and give their estimated annual revenues and market shares. Norovirus microbial contamination costs are excluded from this report because a) noroviruses are instances of contamination due to hygiene right at point of preparation (i.e., fecal-oral is usual route); b) current detection methods are not in routine use but rather used in laboratory studies or medical evaluations/testing.

The total U.S. food safety testing market is valued at $3.4 billion in 2010 and is projected to increase at a 6.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next 5 years. The total sector market value should climb to $4.7 billion in 2015.
The need to preserve foreign markets has testing for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on the upswing and should propel a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in that market at a projected 4.7% through 2015 when the market value should be $126 million, up from $100 million for 2010.
At present, the sheer number of bacteria, and the amount of routine testing conducted, give pathogens the lion’s share ($3 billion) of the $3.4 billion U.S. food-safety testing market value for 2010. This sector will increase at a 6.7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach $4.2 billion in 2015.
The U.S. food safety testing market value increased from $2.0 billion in 2006 to an estimated $2.1 billion in 2007. it should reach $2.8 billion by 2012, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.8%.
The growth rate reflects demand for pathogen testing, where implementation of standard hygiene practices and a stringent regulatory environment has slowed the incidence of microbial infections.
The potency of toxins should propel testing for contaminants from a $78 million market in 2007 to a $135 million market in 2012, a CAGR of 11.6%.
The U.S. market for food safety testing was valued at $276.7 million in 2004 (31.339 million tests) and should increase to $415.6 million in 2009 (40.309 million tests), rising at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 8.5%.
The largest share of sales will be for tests to detect pathogens ($171.4 million in 2004 and $259.6 million in 2009), because of the threat they pose to consumer health and safety
Tests for pesticide residues represent a significantly smaller market, but will see a similar growth rate.
The desire to preserve foreign markets and for food processors to protect themselves at every stage is propelling the 13.7% AAGR for testing for GMOs. Sales of $29.9 million should climb to $56.7 million in 2009.
For other contaminants, testing is expected to continue at a sustained pace (5.1%) through 2009.
Sales in the U.S. of food testing products will increase from $149.5 million in 2000 to $239.4 million in 2005 at an AAGR (average annual growth rate) of 9.9%.
The total number of tests for pathogens and pesticides performed in 2000 will be 27.53 million, rising to 34.15 million in 2005.
The larger share (82%) will be for tests to detect pathogens. These will rise at an AAGR of 9.4% to $192.5 million in 2005.
Sales of pesticide-residue tests will increase at an AAGR of 7.7% from $8.9 million in 2000 to $12.9 million in 2005.
The GM testing market, worth $18 million in 2000, is expected to have the fastest growth of 13.6% per year on average.
