Market Overview

Global Shelf-life Testing Market by Parameter, Method, Technology, Food Tested and Region - Forecast to 2023: Increase in Outbreaks of Foodborne Illnesses -


The "Shelf-life
Testing Market by Parameter (Microbial Contamination, Rancidity,
Nutrient Stability, Organoleptic Properties), Method (Real-time and
Accelerated), Technology, Food Tested, and Region - Global Forecast to
report has been added to's

The shelf-life testing market is estimated to be valued at USD 3.39
billion in 2018 and is projected to reach 4.76 billion by 2023, at a
CAGR of 7%.

The microbial contamination segment is projected to grow at the highest
CAGR during the forecast period. Unhygienic manufacturing conditions in
food & beverage processing plants, low rate of adoption of appropriate
sanitary practices in manufacturing units, use of already contaminated
equipment & procurement of contaminated raw material, unsanitary storage
conditions, cross-contamination, and non-maintenance of the required
temperature in cold chain facilities are the major factors driving the
growth of microbial contamination in industry supply chains.

The shelf-life testing market, by method, is estimated to be dominated
by the real-time segment in 2018. It is also projected to grow at a
higher rate through 2023. Widely acceptable results and higher
suitability for food & beverage products in comparison to the
accelerated shelf-life testing method drive the market growth for the
real-time testing method.
