Shelf-life Testing Market Will See Strong Expansion through 2018-2023

The shelf-life testing market, by parameter, is estimated to be dominated by the microbial contamination segment and is also projected to be the fastest-growing. Microorganisms pose serious health problems, resulting in strict regulations imposed by national governments and international bodies with respect to maximum content levels in food products. As a result, shelf-life testing is essential to ensure that the microbial content in the food product is limited to only a certain level throughout its shelf life, thereby contributing to consumer safety and complying with regulatory limits.

The packaged food segment, by food tested, is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Rapid urbanization has led to changes in consumer lifestyles. Higher employment opportunities and increased disposable incomes have led to increased consumption of packaged food products, which has, in turn, necessitated shelf-life testing for these products.

Key Players of the Market:

• SGS (Switzerland),
• Bureau Veritas (France)
• Intertek (UK)
• Eurofins (Luxembourg)
• ALS Limited (Australia)
• TÜV SÜD (Germany)
• TÜV NORD GROUP (Germany)
• Mérieux (US)

The shelf-life testing market, by technology, is projected to be dominated by the equipment- & kit-based segment and is also projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This segment consists of both, traditional and rapid systems, which are highly preferred by manufacturers because of their ability to provide faster and more reliable results.

The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023. Growth in the Asia Pacific region can be attributed to factors such as growth in the number of shelf-life testing laboratories in India and China, the rise in the number of incidences of bacterial infectious diseases in the region, and growing adoption of convenience and packaged food on the region.
