Growth Opportunities in the Enteric Disease Testing Market

The enteric disease testing market is estimated at USD 1.8 billion in 2021; it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% to reach USD 2.4 billion by 2026. The increasing food demand has compelled farmers, food manufacturers, and suppliers to increase the quantity and improve the quality of agricultural produce and food products. To meet the increasing food demand, global food production must be increased by 70% by 2050, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The increase in global food production impacts the growth of the enteric disease testing market with an increasing number of enteric disease controls in each step—from the raw material procurement till the product reaches consumers, who look out for accredited certification when they purchase food products to ensure the safety of food.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Enteric disease testing Market

The concern among consumers is estimated to increase for the security and safety of food products due to the outbreak of COVID-19, and this might lead to a high adoption rate for testing technologies and laboratories across the globe. Thus, the demand for enteric disease testing will increase in the coming years. Moreover, pandemic situations created due to the outbreak of COVID-19 will increase the demand for rapid tests from food manufacturers and growers to test an adequate number of samples in less time, thereby increasing the supply chain activities and enhancing the adoption of testing technologies.

Opportunity: Technological innovations in the enteric disease testing industry

Technological advancements and innovation across the supply chain have brought about a change in the way business is conducted. The focus is on reducing the lead time, sample utilization, the overall cost of testing services offered. Cheaper, faster, and efficient computing hardware coupled with improved software, network connectivity, and advanced sensors is gaining traction in the enteric disease industry.

The food segment is estimated to account for the fastest growth in the by end use segment for the enteric disease testing market.

The increase in food trade has encouraged public health and government agencies to continuously monitor food quality and take prompt actions to identify, contain, and correct sources of outbreaks. For instance, the Enteric disease and Inspection Service (FSIS) has framed regulations to control the contamination of meat & poultry products in slaughterhouses and processing plants, based on the HACCP enteric disease control system.

By technology, the rapid technology segment is estimated to account for the largest market share in the enteric disease testing market.

Rapid technology in the food industry is used to monitor the count, type, and metabolites of microorganisms that lead to food spoilage, preservation, fermentation, safety, and foodborne pathogens As the use of the Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) model and other enteric disease systems have become firmly entrenched in quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) programs, the industry’s need for “faster, better, cheaper” real-time test results has also increased.
