The market is driven by the increased EMA (economically motivated adulterations) due to high competition and increase in incidences of food frauds. Economically Motivated Adulteration (EMA) is a term used when food fraud is committed by way of intentional mixing or substituting food ingredients, for financial gain. In the highly competitive market, concerns of food frauds due to EMA are increasing. EMA is reported as a fairly common food fraud among high-value products.

The adulteration test segment accounted for the largest share in the food authenticity market in 2015

The market for adulteration tests, among all the types of food authenticity, accounted for the largest share in 2015. This increased complexity in the supply chain is creating multiple challenges in the food industry to ensure food authenticity in terms of proper & correct labeling, GMO existence, preventing adulteration, and other economically motivated food frauds. Cutting cost due to competition is influencing adulteration trends. Due to this reason, instances of economically motivated adulteration (EMA) are growing in the market, which is identified as a major health threat for consumers.

PCR-based segment is projected to be the largest and fastest growing segment, by technology

PCR-based technology is found to be the most common, reliable, and widely used technology to ensure the authenticity of food products. Besides the market drivers, significant growth in adoption of this technology for food authenticity testing can be attributed to drawbacks of ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) technology, wherein the technology conducts DNA analysis for accurate determination of adulterant, meat species or GMO in products even at 0.1% levels of detection. PCR-based technology is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022.
