The report “Agricultural Testing Market by Sample (Soil, Water, Seed, Compost, Manure, Biosolids, Plant Tissue), Application (Safety Testing (Toxins, Pathogens, Heavy Metals), Quality Assurance), Technology (Conventional, Rapid), and Region – Global Forecast to 2022″,agricultural testing market is estimated to be valued at USD 4.56 Billion in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 6.29 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.64%. The market is driven by stringent safety and quality regulations for agricultural commodities, an increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, and rapid industrialization leading to the disposal of untreated industrial waste into the environment.
Growing complexities in the supply chain, lack of adoption of good agricultural practices (GAP), and absence of proper hygiene & sanitation practices have resulted in increasing instances of contamination of food, feed, and agricultural products at the beginning of the supply chain, which are responsible for large-scale outbreaks of illnesses and poisoning in both humans and livestock. This has caused severe concerns among farmers, livestock producers, end consumers, regulatory authorities, and other industry stakeholders.
In order to curb instances of illnesses, food regulatory authorities focus on the framework and implementation of strict safety and quality regulations for food, feed, and agricultural products and commodities. This has driven the growth of the testing, inspection, and certification markets. Regulatory bodies such as the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are introducing guidelines for testing, inspection, and sampling services for safety and quality assurance. Similar guidelines are adopted by other countries, worldwide, with slight variations and exceptions in laws.

Furthermore, in countries such as the US, Canada, Australia, and countries in the European Union, various mechanisms have been formed, and there is a strong emphasis in the framework regarding monitoring policies and their strict enforcement to attain higher transparency in the supply chain and ensure traceability. Such moves have ensured that contaminated food, feed, and agricultural products face border rejections and are quarantined. Moreover, violators are penalized with heavy fines and have their licenses revoked. Therefore, in order to comply with the safety and quality parameters set by various regulatory authorities, agricultural testing is increasingly being adopted as an essential pre-emptive measure.
Quality assurance segment set to dominate the market by 2022
The agricultural testing market, by application, is projected to be dominated by the quality assurance segment during the forecast period. Increase in requirements for the quality of agrarian products in the world can be attributed to the export-oriented agricultural food sector as well as the need for implementing modern mechanisms of quality assurance, witnessed due to globalization.
Rapid technology segment is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period
The rapid technology segment is estimated to dominate the market for agricultural testing in 2017, and is also projected to be the fastest-growing from 2017 to 2022. Low turnaround time, higher accuracy & sensitivity, and the capacity to test a wide range of contaminants compared to the conventional technology are the factors driving the market for rapid technology.
Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Major growth drivers of the region include increased adoption of advanced biotechnological methods and organic farming resulting in the need for agricultural testing, and an increase in the number of exports from the region, necessitating agricultural testing for the produce.
