Food Pathogen Testing Market Disclosing Latest Advancement 2021 to 2027

The pathogens present in food product may cause foodborne diseases. Foodborne illness is a serious public health concern around the world. Foods can become contaminated with pathogenic bacteria through exposure to animal manure, inadequate processing controls, cross-contamination, and improper storage or cooking. Production delays, plant shut-downs, food spoilage, brand protection and product recalls cost money as well as a company’s reputation. Therefore, cost-effective, easy-to-use, and accurate testing methods are necessary to ensure that the consumer receives nothing but the safest food. Meanwhile, the elimination of disease-causing microbes from the food supply is a primary, compelling and shared objective of all responsible food processors. An incident of morbidity or mortality associated with a foodborne pathogen can be disastrous for the consumer, the product and the brand linked to the outbreak as well as to the future commercial viability of the processor’s business.

A food pathogen is a type of bacteria or virus that causes diseases if consumed, as it habitats on spoiled food or unhealthy food. This type of food is not suitable for the human body and thus will cause damage to it. Some of the common food pathogens are salmonella, campylobacter, e. coli, listeria, norovirus, rotavirus, hepatitis A. staphylococcus aureus, bacillus cereus, and clostridium perfringens. In order to prevent this, food pathogen testing is conducted. In addition, food pathogen testing is used to monitor the presence of pathogens such as microbes and bacteria present in the food product. Fast and effective food pathogen detection is vital to protect consumer safety, achieve regulatory compliance and minimize risk to the brand. At the same time, the pathogen testing is used to test contamination level in processed, canned and frozen products. It is also used for farm-fresh products to ensure that these products do not have any type of contamination. Chemicals and contaminants can make entry at any stage of value chain, starting from farm to manufacturing, till it reaches to the consumers. Hence, its testing becomes important at every stage. It is a tool applied across the entire production continuum—from the screening of pre-process raw materials to the monitoring and verification of CCP effectiveness and, finally, to the release of a safe finished product. It is used to verify sanitation effectiveness throughout the production environment, including the all-important food-contact surfaces, as well as monitoring the status of in-process material. It provides information that is critical to understanding process control and the success or failure of food safety efforts.

The growth of the food pathogen testing market is driven by the downstream demand market. As the global economy develops, the population continues to increase. Growing market demand plays an active role in the expansion of the food pathogen testing market. Higher product quality and more affordable products will be one of the growth opportunities in this market in the future. At the same time, competition in new regions may become more intense. This may become a factor hindering market growth.

SWOT of Global Food Pathogen Testing Market  

Increasing foodborne illness across the globe owing to pathogens present in food products is a major factor expected to fuel growth of the target market in the next 10 years. Increasing safety regulations owing to number of cases regarding food poisoning has positively influenced demand. Rise in substantial number of foods borne disease owing to presence of salmonella in fruits & vegetables, processed food, dairy, and meat will drive demand. In addition, increasing demand for rapid testing technologies is another factor expected to fuel growth of the global food pathogen testing market. Advancement in contaminant detection methods including polymerase chain reaction and immunomagnetic separation for reducing detection time and sensitivity. Advancement of technologies for testing and manufacturers tracking the untapped markets are factors expected to offer revenue opportunities for manufacturers operating in the target market. Stringent government regulations regarding product safety has further up surge the industry growth. For instance, CFIA lays down safety standards for taking corrective actions including, issuing public notices, sampling and recalling of products posing health risks.

The manufacturers of food pathogen testing are mostly in developed countries, where labor costs are high and rising. The increase in labor costs has led to an increase in operating costs for manufacturers of food pathogen testing. With major manufacturers and suppliers in the food pathogen testing industry competing at globally, the intensity of competition within the food pathogen testing industry has increased. The vendors adopt strategies like price premiums to stay competitive in the marketwhich ultimately impacts their profit margins and sales volumes.

The market for food pathogen testing is also subject to many restrictions due to the specific nature of the industry. Time consumption in food trade which encourage growth of pathogens, which affects the safety of the product. Microbial growth on meat products, as well as other foods, is affected, not only by the type and level of initial contamination but also by various factors associated with the product (intrinsic) or its environment (extrinsic). In addition, if pathogens are present, meat products may become hazardous for consumers. Pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Salmonella spp. can grow and cause illness by the ingestion of the bacterial cells.
