North America is the largest market for agricultural testing and was valued at USD 1,874.9 million in 2020
The global agricultural test market is about to see a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The impact of COVID-19 on the market testing market is likely to be short-lived and the market is expected to recover strongly as demand for agricultural products increases, leading to increased production, which requires periodic soil testing.
The shift in consumer preference to a higher standard of food safety and quality in terms of chemical residues also creates the need to preserve soil properties for quality production and thus strengthen market growth during the reporting period.
The dominance of quality assurance in agricultural testing is due to the fact that it helps solve important problems related to soil fertility, the quality of the water available for irrigation systems, and the identification of the nutrients needed for more robust growth. culture and cultural development. other agricultural products. production, this market is slightly affected by the global pandemic. Europe accounted for the largest share of the agricultural testing market. The predominant participation in this region is attributed to strict regulations regarding food safety, environment and agriculture, and laws on food, chemicals, and labels. Europe also has the largest number of test laboratories in all regions.
Main market trends
Laws and regulations for agriculture and environmental safety
The agricultural testing market is a fast-growing industry as it is becoming very popular in developed and commercialized regions. Laws and regulations on environmental safety and agricultural productivity were the main drivers for market growth in this advanced segment.
Sample analysis is becoming increasingly popular in agricultural countries that are marketed to support the growth of agricultural exports. The increasing complexity of the supply chain, the lack of good agricultural practices (GAP), and the lack of good sanitation practices have led to an increasing number of polluting food, feed, and agricultural products at the beginning of the supply chain, which is responsible for large scale and outbreaks of animal diseases.
This has raised serious concerns among farmers, farmers, end-users, regulators, and other stakeholders in the sector. Therefore, the above factors created the need to address various problems and challenges in the agricultural supply chain, which led to the greater market potential for experimental agricultural products.
North America dominates the market
North America is the largest agricultural testing market, with a value of $ 1,874.9 million by 2020. The United States offers, in addition to all regional countries, an attractive potential market for market participants. There is a constant demand for seed testing in the country due to US seed and grain certification requirements.
The Division for Seed Analysis and Regulation (SRTD) examines seed for agriculture and horticulture to ensure efficient and orderly seed sales and to help develop new or growing markets. Help the market grow. In the region, there is a growing trend to follow electrophoretic and serological methods to test seeds.
The electrophoretic method is used to determine seed deposition proteins. Furthermore, the electrophoretic method can be used to identify cultivars and test the purity of cultivar seeds, while serological methods are suitable for identifying seeds and determining the composition of complementary species. Furthermore, the serological method offers the possibility to visualize the species specificity of the seed proteins. The shift in consumer preference to a higher standard of food safety and quality in terms of chemical residues creates the need to preserve soil properties for quality production, thus strengthening market growth during the reporting period.
The global agricultural testing market is fragmented with several government-controlled laboratories offering various agricultural testing services to farmers around the world. In the agricultural testing market, companies not only compete on the basis of equipment quality and promotion but also focus on strategic steps to maintain a larger market share. New services, partnerships, and acquisitions are the most important strategies adopted around the world
