At 6.8% CAGR, the Europe Food Safety Testing Kits Market is speculated to be worth US$ 9,146.78 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights
According to Business Market Insights’ research, the Europe food safety testing kits market was valued at US$ 6,147.40 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 9,146.78 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 6.8% from 2022 to 2028. Greater emergence of foodborne illness outbreaks and ascension of food and beverage industry are the critical factors attributed to the Europe food safety testing kits market expansion.
Foodborne illnesses are toxic or infectious in nature and caused by chemical substances, parasites, viruses, entering the body through contaminated water or food. Foodborne pathogens can cause debilitating infections such as meningitis or severe diarrhea. In some cases, chemical contamination can cause long term diseases such as cancer or short-term illness such as acute poisoning. Foodborne diseases may lead to death for long lasting disability. Examples of unsafe food includes raw shellfish containing marine biotoxins, vegetables and fruits contaminated with feces, and uncooked foods of animal origin. E. Coli, campylobacter, and salmonella are among the most common foodborne pathogens that affect millions of people worldwide annually and result in fatal or severe outcomes. Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, headache, and fever. Moreover, listeria infection leads to death of newborn babies or miscarriages in pregnant women. Although the chances of this disease are relatively low, the fatality of listeria makes it one of the most serious foodborne infections. Vibrio cholera infects people through contaminated food or water. Symptoms may include severe dehydration, profuse watery diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and could possibly result in death. Various types of seafood, millet gruel, vegetables, and rice have been implicated in cholera outbreaks. All the antibiotics and other antimicrobials are used to treat infections caused by bacteria. The misuse and overuse of antimicrobials in human and veterinary medicine has been linked to emergence of resistant bacteria rendering the treatment of humans and animals ineffective. Antimicrobial medicine is identified as one of the biggest threats to modern medicine. Therefore, it has become extremely important to detect the contaminants beforehand and prevent them from entering the food chain. Thus, the importance of food safety testing kits has been increasing in terms of volume. Additionally, Foodborne diseases are preventable hence numerous organizations along with governments are leading coordinated action across multiple industries to build resilient and strong food safety systems. The involved parties are heavily investing to provide consumers with tools to make safe food choices. Thus, the emergence of foodborne illness drives the market growth of Europe food safety testing kits market during the forecast period.
