Global Food Diagnostics Systems Industry – Forecast To 2020

TMR_180x180The outbreak of foodborne diseases can put a heavy burden on healthcare agencies and patients alike. Food diagnostic systems have been in place for several years now but have caught on in the last couple of years thanks to growing awareness about food safety in emerging markets. The food diagnostics systems market is expected to report healthy growth chiefly on account of this factor. From being concentrated in the traditional markets of North America and Western Europe, the food diagnostics systems market will expand rapidly in Asia Pacific and other regions.

The role of food diagnostic systems is to check for contamination and impurities in food during the processing, manufacturing, and packaging stages. Food is tested using methods such as microscopic biochemical identification, antibody-based testing, and immunomagnetic separation.

The report studies the various drivers and restraints that will have a bearing on the growth of the global food diagnostics systems market, and offers recommendations for sustained growth. The report also segments the global food diagnostics market on the basis of geographical regions to see where definitive growth pockets lie.

Overview of the Food Diagnostics Systems Market Report

The report segments the global food diagnostics systems market based on consumables and diagnostic systems. The key diagnostic systems that the report studies are: Hybridization-, chromatography-, spectrometry-, and immunoassay-based systems. The hybridization-based food diagnostics systems segment has been sub-segmented as: Gene amplifier, sequencers, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and microarrays. Likewise, chromatography diagnostic systems studied in the report include: Liquid chromatography, gas chromatography, and high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). Spectrometry-based diagnostic systems feature mass spectrometry and biosensors. All of these systems are chiefly used for examining food samples to detect traces of contaminants. While doing so, food diagnostics systems also offer insight about the nutritional content in the samples.

The food consumables segment analyzes reagents, disinfectants, and test accessories that include pipettes, micropipettes, and syringes. The market is also studied based on the types of contaminants in used in testing systems for food diagnostics. These include: Pathogens, moulds, bacillus, fusarium, novivirus, listeria, klebisiella, shigella and Yersinia. Of these, pathogens are used most widely, and comprise: Escherichia coli, listeria, salmonella, and campylobacter.

Food safety concerns are rising the world over, and food quality has become an important purchase decision for consumers with higher disposable income. The quality of food is also closely monitored by governments in the interest of the health and safety of its citizens. This has led to several food standards being updated or launched anew in recent years. All of these factors will prove to be drivers for the global food diagnostics systems market.

On the other hand, there still remains a palpable lack of standardization when it comes to food diagnostics systems the world over. Until this issue is addressed, it will continue to restrain the growth of the food diagnostics systems market. Opportunities in this market exist in the form of molecular imprinting techniques, which make the food testing process quicker and more accurate than ever before. The advent of novel technologies such as optical biosensors, sensor technologies, bacteriophage-based techniques and flow cytometry are now witnessing greater demand in the global food diagnostics systems market.
