Dairy testing has been significantly growing with the increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses
Food products contaminated with pesticides, pathogens, toxins, and heavy metals can cause foodborne illnesses. One of the major causes of foodborne illnesses throughout the world, is dairy. The main sources of contamination are raw and unpasteurized milk, cheese, and ice cream. Moreover, unsanitary handling of raw milk before or after pasteurization may lead to pathogenic contamination. Nutritional value of milk and dairy products is being affected by various unfavourable microorganisms and chemical contaminants. Due to the increase in foodborne illnesses, there is growing concern over the quality and safety of dairy products used for human consumption. Furthermore, government laws on hygiene, public health, and food safety, as well as increased public awareness, are driving the dairy testing market. New product developments and strategic collaborations amongst top companies striving to expand are some of the factors that are predicted to drive global market growth in the future.

Technological advancements in testing industry are further propelling the market growth.
The metabolic instability of dairy products makes them potentially susceptible to deterioration. Additionally, adulterants are utilized frequently to increase profits, which may be harmful to consumers health. In order to assure food safety, evaluate the standards of dairy-related products, and calculate the shelf life of dairy products, a series of tests are carried out, known as dairy testing. Surge in incidences related to adulteration of milk, increase in cases of milk borne diseases, and problems of milk intolerance among the consumers boost the market growth. Furthermore, increase in number of organized retail stores in the emerging economies, which are offering certified foreign based dairy products is also contributing to the market growth. Moreover, rise in health concern among people, change in the lifestyle, and increase in awareness among the millennial consumers about the benefits and necessity of certified tested dairy products are the major reasons that are bolstering the market growth.
Rising adoption of packaged dairy products among the urban population is one of the major factors accelerating the market growth.
There are two types of technologies for dairy testing, traditional and rapid. Rapid technology offers low turnaround time, higher accuracy and sensitivity, and the capacity to test a wide range of contaminants as compared to traditional technology; this is driving the global market for rapid technology. Moreover, rapid technologies are replacing traditional technology, as they are newer, faster, accurate, reliable, and cost effective.
