Meat testing is a test to determine the authenticity and identify adulteration of raw meat for food manufacturers. It provides traceability and confirming the integrity of meat and meat products. Meat processors are continually having to meet the demands of regulators and the quality specifications of key markets and clients resulting in an increased reliance on analytical test results to both validate and verify their processes. Moreover. Meat testing tests the meat on various standards regulated by the authorities and ensure safe products to the consumers. Meat testing market is primarily driven by increasing meat trade at global level and rising consumption of meat and seafood. Additionally, rising consumer awareness about risk associated with contaminated meat, technological advancements in the meat testing industry coupled with stringent regulations made by various government bodies are backing the grow of meat testing market. However, unfavourable factors hindering the growth of the meat testing market growth include excessive cost associated with the initial investment and availability of highly complex techniques for meat testing. The global meat testing market is estimated and forecasted in terms of revenue (USD million) generated by the meat testing market. The report analysis the meat testing market based on target testing into pathogens, species, GMOS, allergens, mycotoxins, heavy metals and veterinary drug residues. Based on sample type, the global meat testing market is segmented into meat and seafood. The meat segment is further bifurcated into poultry, pork, beef, sheep & goat meat and other meat. The beef segment accounted for highest market share and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The highest market share of the beef segment is attributed to rising demand for beef meat from developed and developing countries and increasing consumption of beef meat worldwide. By technology, the global meat testing market is categorized into traditional testing, rapid testing and spectroscopy. Traditional testing includes agar culture test. Rapid testing segment is further sub segmented into immunoassay, PCR and chromatography. The Chromatography segment is categorised into Lc-Ms, Gc-Ms and Lc-Ms/Ms. Moreover, the spectroscopy segment includes ICP-OES, ICP-Ms and Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS). The PCR segment leads the meat testing market owing to its characteristics like automated approach and fast and appropriate results of the test. This test is mostly used for testing of unidentified species in the meat. Based on form, the market is bifurcated into raw meat and processed meat. By geography the meat testing market is studied across the countries of key regions such as, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the world. The Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the projected period. The key driving factors leading to the considerable growth includes, increasing export of meat and meat products in the region. China has a high potential for meat export and import in the country thus acts as a driver for the meat testing market in the region.
