The rising incidence of foodborne diseases, growing consumer awareness regarding food safety, stringent food safety regulations, and rising demand for convenience and packaged food products are some of the major factors driving the growth of the food safety testing market. However, the lack of food control infrastructure in developing nations is hindering the growth of this market to some extent.

The food safety testing market is expected to reach $29.6 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period of 2020 to 2027
