LONDON – The GM food safety testing marketplace was valued at USD 1.36 billion as of 2015, and it is poised to be worth USD 1.99 billion by end-2020, record a 7.9% CAGR. The key drivers include the demand for nutritious foods, consumer consciousness about GMO food, technological development of agricultural practices, massive investments in biotechnology R&D, labeling requirements in several countries, etc. However, factors like insufficient implementation of regulations and the lack of proper technical expertise amid farmers are restraining the growth of the sector.

Based on traits, the stacked segment takes the lead in the market, with the herbicide tolerance and insect resistance segments following after. In APAC, the stacked varieties also incorporate biofortification traits to produce food crops with high nutritional value.

Geography-wise, the USA is concentrated on the wider application of innovative technologies and broader range of food products tested for GM food safety testing. The consumers’ awareness on GM foods is on the rise in importing nations of Asia and Europe. Hence, the demand for specialised tests on processed food that contains GMOs necessitates novel technology development. Furthermore, there have been increases in the exports of GM crops in the USA. The UK was the most rapidly growing country market for GM food safety testing worldwide, and posted the second highest growth in value across Europe.

SGS S.A., Intertek Group plc, Eurofins Scientific SE, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Silliker, Inc., EMSL Analytical Inc., Genetic ID NA, Inc., OMIC USA Inc., and IFP are amid the prominent industry players.
