Europe is a large market for feed testing with XX% share due to the presence of many developed and developing countries. It is expected to grow to $XX million by 2020 at XX CAGR. European Union is an economic and political union of 28 states and is a major decision maker in Europe. European Union includes most of the developed countries and some developing countries in Europe. European market is one of the very first markets for feed testing due to awareness.
Europe has strict food safety standards. Many countries in Europe banned meat and animal products from developing countries citing safety hazards. American beef is also banned in European Union countries citing the hormone treatment of cattle. It is a large market for feed testing as various developed countries like UK, Germany, France, Spain, Norway, Sweden are part of Europe. Europe also has developing countries like Romania, Albania and Belarus in eastern part, which present a case for further growth of feed testing market. Developed countries in Europe have consumers, who are highly conscious of food safety. Pet food market is also very prominent in developed Europe. Concern of pet owners on their pet’s feed also helps growth of feed testing market.
As with the industry, mycotoxin testing dominates the European feed testing market. European climatic conditions offer cool weather. If harvest is delayed and exposure to moisture happens (normally due to rains) mycotoxins develop on the feed due to fungal growth. Unhygienic conditions like improper storage also lead to mycotoxin development. Nutritional analysis of feed is another major feed testing market. Proper nutrition is required for healthy growth and yield of livestock as it impacts, immunity, growth and life of an animal.
The major restraint in European market is costs involved in testing. Awareness is also an issue in less developed countries of Europe. Feed testing involves expert analysis and highly technological equipment. The evolution of pathogens also requires updated testing processes. These factors make feed testing a capital intensive industry. Increasing awareness and more stringent regulations are playing an important role in the growth of feed testing market. Awareness about high quality feed and its importance in animal growth is also promoting growth of feed testing market.
Feed testing is made mandatory by European Union association, Europa. This is a major contributor to feed testing market in Europe. Breakage of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) or mad cow disease in 1980’s triggered the need for feed testing. Europeans quickly realized the need for feed testing as many practices to cut costs of feed are implemented. For example BSE outbreak can be cited to the use of meat and bone meal (MBM) powder which is used as a substituent to plant protein such as soybean.
Eurofins Scientific, Bruker Biosciences Corporation, Intertek Group Plc, Foss are some of the major firms involved in feed testing. Some of the specialties in testing are pathogen testing, nutritional analysis, pesticide testing and fats & oils analysis. Expansions and acquisitions are the main strategies adapted by feed testing companies. Companies are also increasing awareness about feed testing market and regulations to increase their revenue.
