DUBLIN , September 5, 2013 (press release) – Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Food Safety Testing Market - Global Trends Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.

The global food safety testing market has been growing due to ongoing concern for food safety among consumers, food manufacturers, regulatory bodies and governments. Food safety concern has been on the rise partly due to increasing outbreaks of foodborne illness and poisoning due to contaminated food. The factors responsible for food contamination include improper handling of food, contaminated input food materials, inadequate treatment/processing of food that destroys the contaminants, etc. The majority outbreaks of foodborne illness have been traced to the presence of pathogens in the food. Hence, in 2012, pathogen testing has dominated the global food safety testing market.

The driving force of the market includes stringent regulations and increasing food supply trade. The introduction of novel techniques to detect and identify contaminants present in food samples has also been driving the market. The key market players include SGS SA (Switzerland), Eurofins (Europe), Intertek (U.K.), and Bureau Veritas (France). The key players are using strategies such as new product/service launch and merger and acquisitions to strengthen their position in the market.

The global food safety testing market is projected to grow from $9,262.3 million in 2012 to $14,030.2 million by 2018. In 2012, North America was the largest market for food safety testing with a share of 40%.
