Major players in the dairy testing market are SGS, Bureau Veritas, Eurofins, Intertek, TUV SUD, TUV Nord Group, ALS Limited, Mérieux Nutrisciences, Romer Labs Inc., Microbac Laboratories, Asurequality, Dairy Technical Services, Asurequality, Analytica Laboratories, PerkinElmer, and MilkTestNZ.

The global dairy testing market is expected to grow from $4.81 billion in 2021 to $5.10 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.14%. The growth is mainly due to the companies’ rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $6.78 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 7.36%.

The dairy testing market consists of the sales of dairy testing kits and technologies by entities (organizations, partnerships, and sole proprietors) that are used to test dairy products’ quality, limit the risk of dairy fraud, and verify the authenticity and consistency of the ingredients. In dairy testing, dairy products are audited, tested, and inspected to ensure that they meet a variety of domestic and international food safety and regulatory criteria.

The main types of dairy testing are safety testing and quality testing.Safety testing is used to ensure the safety of dairy products.

Dairy products are thoroughly checked at several stages across the supply chain to detect impurities like antibiotics, pesticides, and poisons. The various dairy testing technologies include HPLC-based, LC-MS/MS-based, immunoassay-based, and other technologies that are used in various applications such as ice-creams and desserts, infant food, milk and milk powder, cheese, butter and spreads, yogurt, and other applications.

Europe was the largest region in the dairy testing market in 2021.Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period.

The regions covered in this report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East, and Africa.

The increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses is significantly driving the growth of the dairy testing market.Dairy is a significant source of foodborne illness all around the world, with raw and unpasteurized milk, cheese, and ice cream being the most common sources of contamination.

Dairy testing ensures that pathogens and spoilage organisms do not affect products and that they are safe for consumption.As per a WHO estimate published in April 2020, unsafe food costs low and middle-income nations $110 billion in lost productivity and medical costs each year.

Furthermore, children under the age of five account for 40% of foodborne illnesses, with around 125,000 deaths each year. Hence, the increase in outbreaks of foodborne illnesses is expected to propel the growth of the dairy testing market over the coming years.

Technological advancement is a key trend gaining popularity in the dairy testing market.Major companies operating in the dairy testing sector are focused on developing new technological solutions to strengthen their position.

For instance, in November 2021, Netherlands-based Royal DSM launched the Delvo Phage test kit that can detect phages in dairy within one hour, helping to increase cheese yield and quality, reduce waste, and increase the value of cheese production by 5–10%. This new digital solution, when combined with DSM’s whey testing and culture rotation services, allows cheese and fermented milk product producers to make better, real-time data-driven decisions, resulting in more enhanced and cost-effective production processes.

In January 2021, SGS, a Switzerland-based testing, inspection, and certification company, acquired SYNLAB Analytics & Services (A & S) for the amount of EUR 550 million ($615 million).This acquisition strengthens SGS’s global network in key strategic focus areas, including the environment, food, life sciences, and oil condition monitoring.

Synlab Analytics & Services (A & S) is a Germany-based environmental, food, dairy testing, and tribology services company.
