Several advanced food-producing techniques have paved the way towards upgraded food experience as well as food borne infections. Food and beverage contaminated with toxins, bacteria, chemicals or other agents make almost 23 million Europeans fall ill every year and around 5,000 of them die every year. Several chronic viruses lead to diarrhoeal diseases, foodborne intoxication and with passing time it is further increasing. This is helping in the expansion of the Europe food borne pathogens testing market. Escherichia coli is one of the most common food borne bacterial illness and causes urinary tract infection, enteritis, and others. While these diseases are making lives difficult in Europe, researchers are developing several high-level and unique testing techniques to diagnose the infections and tackle them before the critical situation arises. In 2018, Oasis, a team of students from Georgia Tech bagged $15,000 grand prize at MIT Water Innovation Prize competition for presenting an inexpensive test in order to detect E. coli from drinking water. While regular detecting equipment cost many times more and are also complex in usage, this device is set to create a revolution in the Europe food borne pathogens testing market. Repeated research has also curated a portable image cytometer that could detect E. coli and Legionella virus that is identified in foods generating from environmental and industrial waters. While 7 million of Legionella analyses are carried out annually in Europe, this unprecedented integrated system will pave several opportunities for the Europe food borne pathogens testing market leaders in the upcoming years.
As of 2018, Europe food borne pathogens testing market size was evaluated at 2.07 billion, which is expected to witness an increment at a CAGR of 7.57% during the forecast period 2019-2025.
Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Market Analysis: Key Application
Several viruses like campylobacter, clostridium bacteria, listeria monocytogenes, helicobacter, and others have been causing food borne diseases across the country. However, salmonella outbreak is the most prevalent among all. More than 91,000 cases are reported in the European Union every year. The overall burden for salmonellosis could be as high as $3,325.32 billion a year. Hence, several companies are investing in order to control the disease by coming up with path-breaking testing equipment. NEMIS Technologies is innovating an ultra-sensitive chemiluminescence-based technology to detect salmonella as well as Listeria monocytogenes for preventing food born pathogen involved diseases. Furthermore, the European Union-funded DART Diagnostics has developed a nanomaterial induced kit to rapidly detect salmonella which conventionally cannot be diagnosed before five days. With these path-breaking innovations, there will be an increase in the Europe food borne pathogens testing market demand in the next years. Salmonella detection by the Europe food borne pathogens testing is set to witness an increase at a CAGR of 5.21% throughout 2025.
Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Market Trends & Growth Drivers:
The food and drink industry is the largest manufacturing sector of the country, measuring around $99.73 billion and has been expanding the most in the last 10 years. The short-shelf life of food products such as red meat, processed meals, and others are raising the threat for illnesses giving rise to pathogen detection. This rising industry is attributing to a significant amount of foodborne diseases. Here are the trends and growth drivers driving the Europe food borne pathogens testing market –
· Innovative Campylobacteriosis Tests to Create an Impact on the Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Market –
Around 200,000 people get affected by it every year in Europe and within the last four years, there is a significant increase in the affecters of campylobacteriosis. In 2016, a South Lakeland farm was banned from selling raw milk, as it caused a Campylobacter outbreak in the country. Regularly diverse approaches are being made in order to tackle this foodborne disease by inventing upgraded testing procedures. Researchers have tried to detect volatile organic compounds of campylobacter jejuni through an array of metal oxide gas sensors. Recently, in January 2018, Techlab received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for two tests intended to diagnose campylobacteriosis. Hence, the food borne pathogens testing market of the region is going to flourish in the upcoming years, creating opportunities for the market leaders.
· Aggravating UK Food Poisoning to Drive the Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Marketplace –
Several reports highlight that food poisoning in the UK has risen by ten times, and the UK economy is going to experience $1 billion extra investment per year. Also, the local authority food enforcement officers and standard trading inspectors have declined by 22% and 57% in recent years increasing the cause of food poisoning. This can be taken care off by the foodborne pathogens testing, thereby paving way for the Europe foodborne pathogens market scope.
· Increasing Availability of Processed Food to Boost the Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Market –
The average household availability of ultra-processed food for the UK is 50.4% while it is 46.2% in Germany and 13.4% in Italy, which is not only increasing obesity but also creating foodborne diseases. Therefore, this will create a scope for the Europe foodborne pathogens testing market players to reap off benefits in the upcoming years.
· EU's Flourishing Poultry Farm to Heighten the Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Market Demand –
The country produced a record 33.5 billion pounds of poultry in 2018, which suggest a 25% increase in annual production of the European Union in last 10 years. A large amount of the meat extracted from broiler chicken, turkey, ducks, geese, and others carry deadly viruses such as salmonella, clostridium perfringens, Norovirus, Toxoplasma gondii, and others that affect the EU population creating a need for food borne pathogens testing. Therefore, to keep death rates from these diseases in check, foodborne pathogens testing is inevitable, thereby increasing the Europe foodborne pathogens testing market growth.
· Botulism Poisoning to Contribute to the Expansion of the Europe Food Borne Pathogens Testing Market –
Rates of botulism poisoning are around 200 cases each year with Poland and Lithuania being the most prevalent ones. This serious paralytic illness is caused by canned, vacuum-packed foods and almost 5% - 10% affected patients die. Hence, food borne pathogens testing can help the affected to get diagnosed at the earliest and seek intensive treatment. Therefore, Europe foodborne pathogens testing market is going to witness an upsurge in the upcoming years.
