Charting the Future: Food Pathogen Testing Market to Surge to Projected US$ 49 Billion by 2033 Driven by Safety Concerns

The Food Pathogen Testing Market is witnessing strong growth due to the escalating concerns about food safety. The demand for pathogen detection solutions is driven by strict regulations and heightened awareness of foodborne illnesses. Additionally, the market is expected to expand even more as a result of technological advancements, increased investments in research and development, and a growing emphasis on preventive measures.

It is projected that the worldwide expense of testing for food pathogens will reach around US$ 21.7 billion by 2023. The global market for food pathogen testing is anticipated to grow at an amazing 8.5% annual rate of growth through 2033, according to Future Market Insights. The food pathogen testing market study report estimates that by the end of 2033, the total valuation might reach US$ 49 billion.

During this time, the use of food testing services rose due to the growing demand for packaged and processed foods. The need for food testing services has grown as a result of shifting eating patterns, lifestyle choices, and the acceptance of fast food restaurants.

Growing rates of foodborne illnesses, such as food poisoning and associated ailments, are supporting new developments in the market for food pathogen testing. Many statistics state that each year, one in ten persons worldwide contract a foodborne illness. Food poisoning typically affects children older than five, thus it’s important to closely monitor the food products that are made available through large supply chains.
