Food testing is a method of verifying the safety of food products while also lowering the risk of contamination, which can result in food poisoning. Meat's popularity as a nutritious and delicious food will continue for some time, but challenges to how it is produced and its influence on health will be under increasing strain in the immediate and foreseeable future and boost the demand for Food Testing. The amount of meat consumed in underdeveloped countries has increased three times faster than in developed countries. The need for livestock is driving the Livestock Revolution. People are eating more processed chicken and meat products at home, restaurants, fast food restaurants, and other places around the world. According to figures from The World Counts, global meat consumption is expected to reach 460 to 570 million tonnes by 2050. The incidence of food pathogen outbreaks through meat, poultry, and seafood items will need changes in food regulations, which will boost company development. Continuous regulatory pressure to increase the number of tests performed at production sites is likely to aid the industry's progress. Meat quality testing standards are constantly changing to ensure that food manufacturers produce the highest-quality products possible. Millions of rural poor people in emerging countries are seeing an increase in their incomes and nutrition. However, in many situations, these dietary shifts also cause major environmental and health issues, necessitating Food Testing and thereby boosting the market growth in the future.

Technologies related to natural toxin analysis are rapidly advancing signifying the importance of these tests in the future. Many researchers, including Stanford University, are concentrating their efforts on desensitizers for various food allergies, and this focus is expected to pave the way for various food testing technological advancements. Foodborne viruses, according to the CDC USA, cause a wide range of ailments. Foodborne pathogens are causing an increase in public health problems around the world. Each year, one out of every six Americans becomes ill after consuming tainted foods or beverages. Food can be contaminated with a variety of disease-causing bacteria, or pathogens, which can cause a variety of foodborne diseases. With the advancement of food safety technologies, food pathogen testing methodologies are constantly being improved and implemented. Dairy farmers now have a range of pathogen testing alternatives to select from, all of which are suitable for different types of products, facilities, and workflows. The quick food pathogen testing technologies use a variety of chemistries to detect the targeted pathogens in the most effective and efficient way possible. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 9.4 million people in the United States suffered from the foodborne disease in 2018, owing to the presence of pathogens in food, which is driving up demand for food pathogen testing and driving up market growth. The FDA mandates food firms in the United States to take preventive measures to avoid any international attempt to taint the food supply, as mandated by the FSMA (Food Safety and Modernization Act). This cause a rapid increase in the market in the United States. Similarly, food firms in the United States are being pressured to publish the full list of GMOs in their products, which will boost the market for GMO analysis. Continuous developments in the PCR testing technology are predicted to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in March 2020, Thermo Fisher Scientific, an American supplier of scientific instrumentation, reagents and consumables, and software services launched five new Thermo Scientific SureTect PCR Assays and enhanced software to test food and related samples. SureTect PCR Assays provide end-to-end workflows that give manufacturers and laboratories access to a comprehensive range of tests for each phase of the food testing process, thereby, driving the Food Testing Industry.

The Food Testing market in North America is expected to grow as the customers are becoming more aware of Food Testing owing to foodborne illness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around one in every six Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick each year, with 128,000 people being hospitalized due to foodborne illnesses. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the United States' food safety system by focusing on preventing foodborne illness rather than responding to it. FDA recently on December 1, 2021, released a final rule establishing the Laboratory Accreditation for Analyses of Foods (LAAF) programme, as mandated by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. According to the World Health Organization, Salmonella is the most common food/waterborne etiological illness agent. According to Mexico's Dirección General de Epidemiologa, the number of non-typhoidal Salmonella infections is around 70,000 each year. As the number of cases of foodborne disease rises, the need for food testing services is expected to rise in the region which further drives Food Testing Industry.
