An Overview of Residue Testing Market

Small traces of veterinary/agricultural chemicals or their by-products present inside or outside of any agricultural produce is termed as Agriculture Residue. Most of these residues include traces of heavy metals, mycotoxins, micro-organisms etc. Consumption of agricultural produce that is highly contaminated by these residues can negatively impact the health of the consumers. Main aim of residue testing is to know whether the agro products complies with their Minimum residue limits (MRL) or Maximum Level for metal and chemical residues and whether these agro products are safe for consumption. Residue testing can also detect small traces of insecticides such as DDT, dieldrin etc present in the soil.

Residue Testing Market – Drivers and constraints

Rising awareness, health concerns and stringent regulations to test the hazardous elements are likely to boost up the residue testing market. Other than this, advancement in testing technology, growing international trade for food materials, increase in sustainable food production, large untapped market in emerging regions are some other factors adding up to the growth of residue testing market. On other side growth will get hampered due to poor food control infrastructure and lack of resources. Also, factors like strict food production regulations and lack of awareness about the safety regulations likely to act as constraints.
