Considering the detrimental impact of pathogen-contaminated food on public health and brand reputation, food businesses are under increasing pressure to safeguard their brand identity and gain customer trust. Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria are dangerous bacteria that can cause serious problems in food products, including widespread illness, product recalls, legal action, and permanent damage to consumer trust. Manufacturers may develop and maintain customer trust, foster brand loyalty, and achieve long-term success by exhibiting an unwavering commitment to food safety. Additionally, Consumer perceptions of food safety have experienced a paradigm change due to recent foodborne illnesses and contamination cases. Governments worldwide are investing greater revenue to strengthen food safety initiatives, including effective pathogen testing procedures. Manufacturers have increased their investment in R&D due to the budgetary emphasis on food safety, which has led to new ideas and technological breakthroughs. Additionally, the UK's agri-food and fisheries industries generate approximately £120 billion in economic value annually. Thus, the market will grow due to the increasing focus of food manufacturers on food quality and maintaining brand reputation and increase in demand for food pathogen safety testing equipment and supplies.

However, due to the fast evolution of pathogen strains like bacteria, viruses, and parasites, the market faces significant challenges. Due to these strains' ability to evolve and acquire defense mechanisms, current testing techniques are less reliable. Escherichia coli 0157:H7, for instance, has transformed into new strains with increased virulence and antibiotic resistance, creating significant market challenges and raising the danger of foodborne outbreaks. The global shortage of essential reagents for PC-based testing procedures shows how outbreaks in manufacturing facilities or along the supply chain may hinder the availability of food testing equipment. Therefore, all these elements may restrain the growth of the market.

Site Outlook

By site, the market is classified into in-house, outsourcing facility, and government labs. In 2022, the outsourcing facility segment registered the highest revenue share in the market. Food manufacturers regularly request rapid testing technology to speed up results and supply chain processes. Additionally, rapid methods have increased accuracy, sensitivity, and the ability to test a variety of contaminants while simultaneously producing correct data compared to conventional technologies.
