Stringent safety regulations for food products result in the adoption of shelf-life testing services

The rise in the level ...
... of intricacies and an increase in the number of supply chain participants have made it difficult for manufacturers to be able to uniformly adopt hygienic and sanitized manufacturing practices. Such factors have further led to an increase in the number of food contamination incidences, thereby compelling various governments across the globe to implement and further develop stringent food safety regulations. This has fueled the growth of the testing, inspection, and certification market, with different regulatory bodies such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) introducing guidelines for testing, inspection, and sampling services for the safety and quality assurance of food products. Similar guidelines are adopted by other countries, worldwide, with variations and exceptions in laws.

Increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses

Incidences of foodborne illnesses occur primarily due to the consumption of food contaminated by pathogens or the growth of yeasts and molds that may or may not be pathogenic. This could also happen when a food commodity exceeds its date of expiry, whereby it ceases to be microbiologically safe for consumption. According to a WHO estimate released in 2015, around 600 million people in the world fall ill after eating contaminated food, of which 420,000 die every year. According to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate released in 2012, each year nearly 48 million people get sick, 128,000 get hospitalized, and 3,000 die, due to foodborne illnesses, in the US. According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), every year around 1 million people are affected by foodborne illness, and nearly 20,000 people receive medical treatment for foodborne illnesses in the UK. Furthermore, about 500 death cases are reported as a result of food poisoning, costing approximately USD 2.0 billion, in the country.


Lack of market coordination & standardization and improper enforcement of regulatory laws & supporting infrastructure in developing economies
The food industry in developing countries remains highly fragmented and is predominated by small and unorganized players, who may have not necessarily adopted proper food testing and shelf-life testing practices, leading to a greater risk of their contamination. Testing of food & beverage products, such as packaged foods, dairy products, beverages, and meat products, among other samples require proper enforcement measures, coordination between market stakeholders and supporting infrastructure. However, many countries that are classified in the cluster of developing economies lack these factors acting as a restraint for the shelf-life testing industry.

The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023. Growth in the Asia Pacific region can be attributed to factors such as growth in the number of shelf-life testing laboratories in India and China, the rise in the number of incidences of bacterial infectious diseases in the region, and growing adoption of convenience and packaged food on the region.
