The global food authentication testing is expected to register an estimated CAGR of 8% during the forecast period 20182023.
On March 17, 2016, Merieux NutriSciences, introduced a fast, more accurate, modern DNA sequencing technology, to sustain market competition for innovation. Merieux launched the nextgeneration sequencing test method for authentication testing for premium cheese. The company acquired Lactolab in South Africa, to strengthen its dairy testing capabilities in the country. Adopting powerful technologies and geographical expansion are the leading strategies followed by major players in the market.
Food authentication testing ensures that the products are safe to consume and free from adulterants. The compliances required by various food regulatory bodies have led to a competitive scenario among international laboratories.
In 2016, NSF International purchased Authen Technologies, to cater to the increased demand for high accuracy DNAtesting. It provides nextgeneration DNAbased species identification SI, which is regarded as a more reliable and accurate technology for SI. The need for such innovative techniques comes from the impact of food fraud cases on producers, which in turn is driving the food authentication testing market.
The market can be segmented on the basis of technology into PCR technique, DNA sequencing/barcoding, Next Generation Sequencing, ELISA, NMR technique/molecular spectrometry, mass spectrometry, and others.
Realtime PCR technique is a gold standard, conventional, and a more reliable method in DNA species detection tests. Its costeffective testing capability and high accuracy, have aided in its domination of the market share compared to other technologies. This method is highly preferred in the developed regions, for food authentication and food allergen label claims identification. The PCRbased food authentication test market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.3%. AsiaPacific is expected to be fastestgrowing market for the food authentication testing market.
Countries, such as India and China, dominate the AsiaPacific region with regard to food adulteration incidences, due to fewer, strict regulatory standards. However, in recent years, the government bodies, of these countries, have imposed strict compliances to prevent food fraud occurrences. The need for product safety, coupled with regulatory requirement, has created significant opportunity for the food authentication testing market. Eurofins expanded its food testing labs in China, to strengthen its market presence, and seizing the opportunities arising due to food scandals.
North America is the largest market for food authentication testing, while AsiaPacific is projected to be the fastestgrowing market during the forecast period. Researchers say the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act FSMA in the United States and an extended food authentication action plan implemented in China are attractive opportunities for growth in the food authentication testing market.
MAJOR PLAYERS: EUROFINS, INTERTEK, SGS, MRIEUX NUTRISCIENCES, EMSL ANALYTICAL INC., NSF INTERNATIONAL, UK CENTRAL GOVT. LAB, THERMOFISCHER SCIENTIFIC, LGC, RSSL, GENONLABS, CAMPDEN BRI and SCIEX FOOD FRAUD TESTING SOLUTIONS, amongst others.
