Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market

Market Analysis and Insights

Food safety and quality are major concerns for food manufacturing and the retail and hospitality industry. It has an impact on productivity. Food allergies are increasing globally, including the number of allergens, the sensitization rate, and the prevalence rate. To protect food-allergic individuals in the community, food allergies need to be appropriately managed, tested in processed foods and properly labeled on them. The presence of allergen testing has recently increased, and testing laboratories can help detect these allergens. The most important function of the food allergen laboratories is to test foods for the presence of allergens such as soy, dairy, peanut, and tree nut, among others.                                                                 

 The demand for food testing is increasing, for which manufacturers are involved in the new product launches, promotions, awards, certification, and event participation in the market. These decisions are ultimately enhancing the growth of the market.

Market Definition

Food allergy is an immune system reaction that occurs soon after eating a certain food. Even a tiny amount of the allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as digestive problems, hives or swollen airways. In some people, a food allergy can cause severe symptoms or even a life-threatening reaction known as anaphylaxis. A food intolerance, on the other hand, occurs when a person has difficulty digesting a particular food. This can lead to symptoms such as intestinal gas, abdominal pain or diarrhea. Food allergen and intolerance testing is the scientific analysis of food and food contents for the detection of allergens. It is done to provide information about the various allergic components of food, including the structure, composition, and physicochemical properties of the food. Food product testing can be done using several highly advanced methods for providing accurate information about the nutritional value and safety of the food.    

Food testing and analysis are essential for food safety to ensure that the food is safe to consume. This includes nourishing the network of food testing laboratories, assuring the quality of food testing, investing in human resources and carrying out surveillance activities, and educating consumers.

Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Increasing prevalence of food allergies and intolerance

According to the World Health Organization, allergies affect up to 40 percent of the world’s population, and the proportion of sufferers in big cities and industrialized countries is rising. They can cause chronic illness and, in the case of some food allergies, can be fatal. Food allergy has emerged as a serious public health concern. The prevalence of food allergies is estimated to be around 2-4% in adults and 6-8% in children. In Western countries, challenge-diagnosed food allergy has been reported to be as high as 10%, with the greatest prevalence noted among younger children. There is also growing evidence of increasing prevalence in developing countries, with rates of challenge-diagnosed food allergy in China and Africa reported to be similar to that in Western countries. An interesting observation is that children of East Asian or African descent born in a Western environment are at higher risk of food allergy compared to Caucasian children; this intriguing finding emphasizes the importance of genome-environment interactions and forecasts future increases in food allergy in Asia and Africa as economic growth continues in these regions. While cow’s milk and egg allergy are two of the most common food allergies in most countries, diverse patterns of food allergy can be observed in individual geographic regions determined by each country’s feeding patterns. Moreover, with the adverse non-toxic reactions (hypersensitivity), the prevalence rate of food allergies is mounting exponentially. The rising number of food allergy cases has prompted public health authorities around the world to take significant measures to curb the allergies' reactions and their consequences.

  • A variety of foods susceptible to allergens creates a need for testing

Right from baby foods to bakery & confectionery, dairy, beverage, convenience goods, and meat products, all are susceptible to cause allergies, which is creating a large food allergen testing marketplace. Furthermore, due to the poor quality of animal feed, there is always a possibility of meat causing allergies in humans. Even though the food and beverages industry is observing an increase in demand for animal feed additives that are capable of improving the quality of feed, the food intolerance testing market yet holds importance in ameliorating allergies caused by meat.   

Although more than 170 foods have been identified as causing food allergies in sensitive consumers, the USDA and the FDA have identified eight major allergenic foods, based on the 2004 FALCPA (the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act). 

Opportunity

  • Food allergen testing in emerging markets

According to the World Allergy Organization (WAO), anaphylaxis in emergency rooms ranged from 222, 300-350, and 3,000 episodes on an annual basis in Hungary, Japan, and China respectively. Furthermore, the organization estimates the prevalence rate of anaphylaxis to be 2%, 0.1%, and 0.6-1% of the population in the U.S., Korea, and Australia. The Food Drugs Administration (FDA) has made food safety an imperative aspect of the food industry, which is acting as a driving factor for the market. Furthermore, there has been a discernible increase in the number of people suffering from food allergies since the 1990s, which is further making the food allergens testing market an important segment in countries such as Europe, the U.S., and others.

Restraints/Challenges

Many obstacles hinder the proper diagnosis of food allergies (FA) in the developing world since there is evidence that knowledge about food Allergies by parents and healthcare workers is insufficient, and in vitro diagnostic tests are not easily accessed. Early diagnosis of FA is important for prognosis and proper nutritional management. However, even in developed countries, a 4-month diagnostic lag is reported especially in infants with less severe manifestations of non-IgE mediated milk allergy. This situation is probably worse in developing countries; Aguilar-Jasso et al. found a 38-month delay in the diagnosis of FA in North-Western Mexico.

Lack of food control infrastructure & resources in developing countries and technical difficulties during sampling, testing, and protein identification are expected to obstruct the market growth. The Middle East and African countries and other low-income countries currently remain restricted because of low awareness about food allergens and intolerance testing. Lack of government initiative, poor economy, and above all lack of awareness among individuals regarding allergies related to food are going to hinder the market 

However, every country is bounded by the guidelines regulated by different authorities which are expected to act as a challenge to the growth of the food allergens and intolerance testing market.

Recent Developments

  • In December 2020, Eurofins Scientific launched the SENSI Strip Allergen product range to detect food allergens in packaged food products. This new product launch helped the company in enhancing its product portfolio
  • In October 2020, NEOGEN Corporation launched a new food extraction method to expand the capabilities of Reveal 3-D food allergen tests for direct testing of food products. The new Reveal 3-D product allows the rapid screening of food and ingredients samples. The buffer is available for egg, coconut, hazelnut, soy, peanut, and almond tests. This new product launch helped the company expand its food safety product portfolio
