Sustainable Growth Opportunities in the Meat Testing Market

(I-BusinessNews.Com, August 07, 2020 ) The global meat testing market is estimated at USD 7.94 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.7%, to reach USD 11.48 billion by 2023. Outbreaks of diseases due to contaminated meat & seafood have massively transformed the industry, leading to increased government regulations on meat products and their quality. Increasing incidents of such frauds are a major concern in the industry. These factors are the major drivers of the meat testing industry, globally.

On the basis of target tested, the pathogen testing segment accounted for the largest share, followed by the species identification segment, in 2018. Improper storage of raw meat can cause pathogen contamination in raw meat; also, cross-contamination leads to the contamination of meat & seafood by foreign particles, which leads to food recalls. Additionally, due to the complex process and supply chain, concerns about cross contamination during storage, transportation, handling, and repacking are rising. This gives rise to food safety and standard issues with respect to contaminants and undeclared species that may be life-threatening to consumers. This is driving the market for species identification testing.
