Food Traceability (Tracking Technologies) Market by Equipment (PDA with GPS, Thermal Printers, 2D & 1D Scanners, Tags & Labels, Sensors), Technology (RFID/RTLS, GPS, Barcode, Infrared, and Biometrics), End-User (Food Manufacturers, Warehouse/Pack Farms, Food Retailers, Defense & Security Departments, Other Government Departments) and Application (Meat & Livestock, Fresh Produce & Seeds, Dairy, Beverages, Fisheries) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

The Food traceability (tracking technologies) market is growing at a healthy rate with increasing awareness about food safety among governments and consumers. Consumers are willing to pay a premium for products that support social responsibility traits requiring food tracking and traceability. Moreover, increasing globalization is increasing the complexity in supply chain process (from harvest to final sale) leading to increase in the chances of food contamination. This is expected to increase the demand of food traceability and tracking technologies as it ensures quality and safety of the food supplied, enhances chances of rapid and precise product recalls as well as accurately tracks causes of contamination. Furthermore, adoption of traceability systems would enhance supply chain efficiency by providing detailed historical data about timings, condition, handling and flow of goods.

It is estimated that around 3000 people die every year in the U.S. due to food borne diseases according to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention.
