Food Safety Products

As Quoted In Labels & Labeling

Solid gains will be driven in part by increased public awareness of food safety following recent outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, as well as by stricter controls on food processing.

US demand to rise 7.3% annually through 2016

Demand for food safety products in the US is forecast to increase 7.3 percent annually to $4.5 billion in 2016. Solid gains will be the result of increased public awareness following recent highly publicized multistate outbreaks of foodborne illnesses; the need to comply with stricter government controls; and industry initiatives that will provide a strong impetus for companies to improve their food safety practices. Additionally, growth will be driven by challenges arising from the increasingly global nature of the food supply, which adds complexity and the potential for the introduction of new pathogens from different regions. Other factors will include accelerated food and beverage production relative to that of the 2006- 2011 performance and an improved outlook for foodservice revenues following weaker performance in the recession- impacted 2006-2011 period.

Smart labels and tags, software and tracking to be fastest growing types

Among major food safety product segments, smart labels and tags, and software and tracking systems are expected to experience the fastest gains, reflecting a heightened emphasis on traceability in the food supply chain. Smart label and tag demand will be boosted by traceability advantages along with expanded usage in food packaging to reduce losses in perishable foods. Opportunities will also exist in the livestock market as a result of the need for improved traceability of animals to their point of origin. The latter is crucial in the event of animal disease outbreaks.

Gains for software and tracking systems will be supported by increased US Food and Drug Administration recordkeeping requirements that will drive further investment by food manufacturers in such systems. Above average growth is also expected for diagnostic products based on increased testing requirements following passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act along with heightened emphasis on testing for possible contamination in order to raise consumer confidence following outbreaks of foodborne illness. Growth will also be aided by the continued migration toward rapid diagnostic tests, which are expensive.

Food processing plants to remain largest market

Food processing plants encompass the largest market by far, accounting for 60 percent of total food safety product demand in the US in 2011. Meat applications account for the largest share of demand in this segment since raw meat is easily contaminated during slaughter and subsequent processing, necessitating extensive food safety measures. Robust growth is anticipated for diagnostic products in meat applications

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $3.2 billion US food safety product industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (e.g., disinfection products, diagnostic products, disposable gloves, smart labels and tags) and market (e.g., food processing plants, foodservice establishments, farms, retail).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 43 industry players, including Ecolab, 3M and Diversey.
