DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 15, 2016) - Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "North American Food Safety Market by Contaminant, Technology, Food Tested & Country - Trend & Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.

The North American Food Safety Testing Market Is Projected to Reach USD 6.4 Billion by 2020

In 2014, the U.S. dominated the North American food safety testing market. Food safety testing is a method of manufacturing, handling, and storing food and food products to prevent foodborne illnesses and poisoning. The North American food safety testing market has expanded due to the increased number of foodborne disease outbreaks and food contamination caused by pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, and others (Staphylococcus, Clostridium, and Bacillus).

The North American government has spent billions to recover from the pathogen epidemic. Food safety regulations in North America have been strictly implemented to eliminate the food contamination chances and unwanted occurrences of foodborne illnesses and poisoning.

The food safety testing market has been divided into four segments, namely, contaminant, food tested, technology, and country. The food safety testing is been conducted to detect contaminants under the category of pathogens, pesticides, GMOs, toxins, and others which include food allergens and chemical residues. The common pathogen testing for food safety include E.coli, salmonella, listeria, and campylobacter.

Food safety testing has been generally carried in meat and poultry products, processed foods, fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and other foods which include cereals and raw food materials. Food safety testing has been segmented into traditional and rapid technology. Rapid technology includes convenience-based, PCR-based, immunoassay-based, and other methods such as GC, HPLC, LC, and LC-MS-MS. The North American food safety testing market is explicitly determined for three countries: U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
