Pesticide residue is subject to stringent legislation around the world in order to protect customers. Pesticide residue testing is an important tool for identifying and controlling pesticide residues in accordance with national and international regulations. Excessive pesticide use can result in dangerous levels of harmful chemicals entering the food chain. Fresh produce is the most vulnerable to pesticide residues and is consumed in more significant quantities.
Pesticide Residue Testing Market Dynamics
- Rising risk of pesticide residue contamination
Pesticide residues testing market is expected to grow during the forecast period due to increased risk of pesticide residue contamination in livestock feed and rising incidences of pesticide residue occurrences in crops. With the global population growing, effective pesticide residue testing methods are required for sustainable food production. The global pesticide residue testing market is being driven by the implementation of stringent food safety regulations, advancements in testing technologies, and international trade of food materials.
Stringent regulations laid by government on implementation of testing
Throughout the world, various governments and regulatory bodies have made testing of animal feed and food ingredients mandatory. Animal feed is not approved for marketing unless its safety and efficacy have been proven. Such precautions to avoid contamination, chemicals, and toxic presence have significantly impacted the growth of the pesticide residue testing market. Many countries have enacted specific regulations for pesticide residues in food and animal feed to protect human and animal health.
Increasing food trade across the borders of emerging markets expands the market's opportunity for growth. The rising number of food-borne illnesses and poor sanitation and processing conditions in factories in a few countries necessitate the need for pesticide residue testing of food. The implementation of regulations in emerging economies that have entered the food trade and the authorization of authorities to prohibit the import and supply of contaminated food and enforce food recalls are expected to increase demand for testing services in these regions. Furthermore, increasing cases of mycotoxicosis outbreaks in Asia and Africa are expected to create significant growth opportunities for pesticide residue testing in these regions.
Several developing regions' in pesticide residue testing markets lack organisation, sophistication, and technology. Food control laboratory infrastructure is likely to be scarce in many developing countries due to limited resources, limited technology, and poor management. There are numerous issues concerning food safety, such as a lack of institutional coordination, outdated technology, a lack of expertise for executing regulation at the lowest levels, and a lack of updated standards, all of which have hampered the testing market. Laboratories are under-equipped and lack appropriately by untrained analytical personnel.

COVID-19 Impact on Pesticide Residue Testing Market
COVID-19 has resulted in a significant shift in consumer demand, shifting away from restaurants, food service, and other types of "food away from home" and toward food consumed at home. This has resulted in numerous significant changes in the way food supply chains operate. As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, sales of "food away from home" (food consumed in hotels, restaurants, catering, and cafés) fell precipitously. COVID-19 has caused havoc in the food processing industry. Food companies in this industry have been impacted by social distancing rules, labour shortages due to movement restrictions, and lockdown measures to contain the virus's spread. Furthermore, regional governments' actions have limited the number of people working in small areas, which has hampered growth of the food industry.
