Food Authenticity Market Outlook- 2030

The global food authenticity market was valued at $5.3 billion in 2017, and is estimated to reach $10.0 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.9 % from 2021 to 2030. Food authenticity is a process of testing food in laboratories for validation and usage preference. Food & beverage products, such as fruit juice, edible oil, beer, and wine, can be tested for the detection of purity using advanced instrumentation. In addition, food authenticity is utilized to ensure label claims on the products.

Implementation of stringent regulations relating to food fraud globally, rise in Economically Motivated Adulterations (EMA) due to high competition among food producers, and increase in instances of food debasement such as adulterations, false labelling, and certification. Furthermore, rapid growth in international trade and increase in awareness among consumers related to food authenticity and certification are expected to boost the market. However, factors such as lack of food control infrastructure in the developing economies, complexity in testing techniques, and lack of harmonization of regulations are expected to hamper the market growth in the near future. In addition, technological advancements, such as test kits for onsite testing, and the emerging markets in Asia-Pacific, South Africa, and other countries are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market growth.


Asia-Pacific has is the largest growing markets among other regions for food authenticity. Upgrade in economic conditions of the region and rise in disposable income are the key factors propelling the market growth. Furthermore, upsurge in economic growth in several countries of the LAMEA region has led to many companies undergoing food testing methods, thereby boosting the overall market growth. In resultant, there are various untapped regions in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA which are expected to possess enormous growth prospects during the coming years.

Analyst Review

Food fraud has been a major concern for the food industry since decades; for instance, the adulteration of imported tea with iron filings in the nineteenth century. At present, meat adulteration or substitution of alternative species of fish and others is expected to remain dominant in the market. As detection of food fraud is difficult, it is necessary to develop advanced analytical techniques, such as molecular biology; isotopic analysis; and a range of classic physical, chemical, and biological methods, to test for food authenticity and detect the noncompliance in food products.

The adulteration tests segment was the highest revenue contributor in 2017, and is expected to register a growth rate of 6.9% during the forecast period. However, cutting cost due to stiff competition has led to proliferation of adulteration. Instances of economically motivated adulteration (EMA) have rapidly increased in the market, which is a major health threat for consumers. Meat speciation segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. In 2017, the (PCR) polymerase chain reaction segment accounted for 35.6% share of the global market, and is expected to witness the highest growth rate, registering a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period.

In 2017, Europe was the most significant market for food authenticity, followed by Germany. Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant growth on account of increase in processed food production and rise in food safety concerns among consumers. Furthermore, supportive government policies in countries, such as China and India, coupled with foreign investments in the food & beverage industry are anticipated to boost the market for food authenticity in the near future.
