By target tested, the GMO segment is projected to be the fastest-growing type in the food safety testing market during the forecast period.
The fastest growing market of GMO is attributed due to Increase in consumer awareness for genetically modified organisms in food, and efficient technological trends are expected to drive the global market for GMO testing. Lack of information about the nutritional and safety properties of genetically modified food leads consumers to think that they are not safe for consumption, thereby driving the market for GMO testing and labeling.
The meat, poultry, and seafood segment is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period.
Among foods tested, the market is estimated to be dominated by the meat, poultry, and seafood segment in 2018. The contamination of meat & poultry products is often observed during processing, packaging, and storing. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has framed regulations to control the contamination of meat & poultry products in slaughterhouses and processing plants, based on the HACCP food safety control system. A major factor that drives the growth of the seafood testing service industry is the high demand for seafood products such as crustaceans, shrimp, crabs, lobsters, tuna, marlin, and swordfish, due to their nutritional values such as the presence of omega fatty acids and other essential nutrients.
