Report Overview

The growing food allergies and increasing advancements in testing technology are projected to propel the expansion of the Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market during the forecast period between 2023 and 2029.

Asia Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market - Industry Trends & Forecast Report, 2029

Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market size was estimated at USD 671.2 million in 2022. During the forecast period between 2023 and 2029, the size of Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.44% reaching a value of USD 1,032.6 million by 2029. Major growth drivers for the Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market include the increasing government regulations, growing food and beverages industry, and rising international trade in food and its ingredients, opens avenues for players in the Food Allergen Testing Market in the region. Notably, the imported food undergoes rigorous scrutiny adhering to quality and labeling standards. Consequently, manufacturers exporting to developed regions must comply with stringent food safety and labeling regulations, amplifying the demand for food allergen testing products and services. Simultaneously, government authorities in nations like China, Australia, South Korea, and Taiwan are increasingly prioritizing the establishment of strict regulations for food allergen labeling. Unlike global trends, the prevalence of food allergies varies across regions. While eggs, wheat, peanuts, soy, milk, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish are recognized as the eight common food allergens worldwide, they may not be the primary sources of allergies in Asian countries. Research indicates that allergens more prevalent in Asia differ from those in North America and Europe. Notably, shellfish emerges as a significant food allergen in Asian countries, particularly impacting children. This regional distinction underscores the need for tailored regulatory frameworks and heightened awareness in addressing specific allergenic challenges.

Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing – Overview

Food allergies result from the immune system reacting to specific foods, causing symptoms, such as hives or digestive issues. Even small amounts of allergenic foods can trigger severe reactions, including life-threatening anaphylaxis. Conversely, food intolerance arises from difficulties digesting certain foods, leading to symptoms such as gas or abdominal pain. Food allergen and intolerance testing analyze food composition and properties to detect allergens, providing information on nutritional value and safety. Ensuring food safety involves investing in testing laboratories, maintaining quality, enhancing human resources, surveillance, and consumer education. Comprehensive testing methods play a crucial role in guaranteeing the safety and nutritional value of consumed food.

Growth Drivers

Growing Food Allergies

Growing food allergies are significantly impacting the Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market. According to the World Health Organization, up to 40 percent of the global population is affected by allergies, with a rising proportion in big cities and industrialized nations. This includes chronic illnesses and, in some cases, fatal food allergies. The prevalence is estimated at 2-4% in adults and 6-8% in children. Western countries report challenge-diagnosed food allergy rates as high as 10%, especially among younger children. Developing countries, including China and Africa, show increasing rates. Notably, children of East Asian or African descent born in Western environments face higher food allergy risks, emphasizing genome-environment interactions. As the prevalence rises exponentially, global public health authorities are taking significant measures to address the consequences of allergic reactions.

Restraints

Limited Awareness about Food Allergens

Numerous challenges hinder the effective diagnosis of food allergies (FA) in developing regions, exacerbated by inadequate knowledge among parents and healthcare professionals. In vitro diagnostic tests for FA are not easily accessible, leading to delayed diagnoses, a critical factor for prognosis and nutritional management. Even in developed countries, a 4-month diagnostic lag is reported, especially for infants with less severe manifestations of non-IgE mediated milk allergy. Developing countries face additional hurdles, with Aguilar-Jasso et al. reporting a 38-month delay in FA diagnosis in North-Western Mexico. Limited food control infrastructure and resources in developing nations, coupled with technical difficulties in sampling, testing, and protein identification, pose significant obstacles to market growth. The Middle East, Africa, and other low-income countries face restrictions due to low awareness of food allergens and intolerance testing. The market is hindered by a lack of government initiatives, economic challenges, and, notably, a widespread lack of awareness among individuals regarding food-related allergies, resulting in a notable reduction in the overall market growth potential.

Impact of COVID-19 on Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market

Covid-19 pandemic adversely affected the Asia-Pacific Food Allergens and Intolerance Testing Market. Key countries in the region were under lockdown, with high-impact areas implementing isolation and social distancing measures mandated by governments. This resulted in reduced production of goods and commodities, directly impacting the demand for food allergen testing solutions over the past few months, thereby hindering market growth. Despite these challenges, the introduction of new features and technologies by vendors presented an opportunity to attract new customers and expand their presence in emerging markets. This factor was anticipated to drive the growth of the APAC Food Allergen Testing Market, with expectations of a significant Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) during the forecast period.
