“Mycotoxin testing market projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0%”

The mycotoxin testing market is projected to reach USD1.56 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2016 to 2022. The market is driven by factors such as humid atmospheric conditions leading to increase in mycotoxins production in food & feed products, implementation of stringent food safety regulations, international trade mandates, growing health concern among consumers, consumer complaints (food recalls). Increased consumer awareness for food safety, and availability of advanced technologies capable of rapid testing provide new opportunities for market players. Lack of food control systems, technology, infrastructure & resources in developing countries are the factors restraining the market growth.

“The Fusariumtoxin segment is projected to be the fastest growing segment in the mycotoxin testing market during the forecast period”

The Fusariumtoxin segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to the large number of Fusarium toxin prevalence and presence in various foods & feed products. The increase in food trade and contamination in grain due to changing climatic conditions is also a significant driver. The exposure to these mycotoxins has caused concerns among consumers of possible health consequences, which in turn has increased the demand for Fusarium toxin testing. This is followed by the aflatoxin segment, which is projected to remain the second-largest market through 2022.

“HPLC-based technology led the market with the largest share in 2015”

The HPLC technology is found to be the most common and economic technology to detect and quantify mycotoxins in food & feed products.  High-pressure (or high-performance) liquid chromatography is one of the most powerful tools in analytical testing of foods. It has the ability to separate, identify, and quantitate compounds present in any sample that can be dissolved in a liquid. Compounds in trace concentrations as low as parts per trillion (ppt) can easily be identified with HPLC. These advantages have been driving the market for HPLC-based tests in food & feed mycotoxin testing.LC-MS/MS-based technology is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022.

“Europe led the market with the largest share in 2015”

Europe was the largest mycotoxintesting market in 2015. Governing organizations present in the market have enforced various mycotoxintesting policies. The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest growing market through 2022 due to the increasing food safety concerns among the consumers and growing international trade. U.K. is projected to be fastest growing country in the European region.
