Dairy Testing Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2020 to 2027

Dairy Testing Market: Summary

The Global Dairy Testing Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 7.5 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 6.4%.

Dairy products are produced from natural as well as synthetic milk and are widely consumed across the globe as a major source of nutrients. These products are easily susceptible to deterioration owing to the biochemical instability causing contamination and souring with sanitizing agents may cause abnormal appearance in the milk. Additionally, harmful adulterants are often introduced to these products that may intervene with the health of the consumers. Thus, in order to measure and ensure the quality of dairy products, various safety and quality test are conducted during its manufacturing process. Improve production efficiency, extend shelf life, and decrease in hold time are some of the advantages of testing dairy products.

Dairy Testing Market: Drivers & Challenge

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Incidences of Pathogen Contamination in Dairy Foods

Pasteurized and raw milk can be contaminated during bottling, shipment, and storage. The prominent causes for the contamination of pasteurized milk are equipment failure and post-pasteurization contamination. The four prominent sources of pathogens in raw milk are Salmonella typhimurium, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, and Campylobacter which are the major source of bacterial pathogens leading to illness and infections in human beings. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), in the U.S. outbreaks associated with dairy consumption caused an average 760 illness per year in 2017. Thus, regulatory bodies such as the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and others across the globe are mentoring and regulating the consumption of raw milk and stating the risk associated with raw milk consumption. For instance, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), imposed (21 CFR.1240.61) regulation which banned the interstate sales & distribution of raw milk. Thus, increasing the incidence of pathogens contamination in dairy foods has expected to drive the growth of the dairy testing market during the forecasted period. 

Market Challenge:

  • Lack of Harmonization of Food Safety Standards

Increasing incidents of an outbreak of foodborne illness have surges various regulatory bodies to implement various regulation for manufacturing and consumption of raw milk. For instance, the government of Canada, imposed Dairy Products Regulations (SOR/79-840), stating standards for inspection packaging, and labelling of dairy products. Moreover, according to the European Union, Council Directive 2002/99/EC forms the legal basis for all animal health rules governing the production, processing, distribution and introduction of products of animal origin for human consumption. Manufacturers and suppliers lack in following the rules and regulation stated by the various governing bodies. Thus, the lack of harmonization of food safety standards may pose a major challenge in the growth of the market.
