The analysts forecast the Global Food Safety Testing market to grow at a CAGR of 7.01 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing adoption of stringent regulations and quality standards. The Global Food Safety Testing market has also been witnessing the increasing use of rapid testing methods to detect pathogens. However, the lack of compliance to food safety regulations and standards could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The report, the Global Food Safety Testing Market 2012-2016, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in North America, Europe, the APAC region, and the ROW; it also covers the Global Food Safety Testing market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The Global Food Safety Testing market is witnessing increased adoption of the rapid testing methods. These methods are cost-effective and take less time to yield results than the traditional testing methods. They use highly technically-advanced biosensors and immunoassays to test for food pathogens such as Salmonella, E-coli, Listeria, Campylobacters, and others. PCR-based and immunoassay-based methods were highly popular in 2012 and they accounted for more than 25 percent of the total microbiology tests conducted.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing number of food poisoning cases. The recent food poisoning cases in Europe and the US have forced consumers to accept only inspected, tested, verified, and certified food products.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the increased vendor competition. The market for food safety testing services is promising due to the urgent need to test food products. This is attracting several global and local vendors to the market, thereby fragmenting the market. This decreases the global vendors' shares and revenue in the market.

The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are 3M Co., Accugen Laboratories Inc., Adpen Laboratories Inc., Avomeen Analytical Services, Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., Campden BRI, EMSL Analytical Inc., Eurofins US, Genon Laboratories Ltd., Idexx Laboratories Inc., MVTL Laboratories Inc., Romer Labs Division Holding GmbH, and Spectro Analytical Labs Ltd.
