Destructive Testing Market Demand Outlook Comparison Between 2016-2020 and 2021-2031

The demand for destructive testing has hit all-time high, thanks to focus on food security. Industry players have upped their game with the introduction of cutting-edge technologies to prevent food contamination and microbiological hazards.

Food analysts are showing greater interest for obtaining information about diverse properties of food. Destructive testing offers data on various aspects of a food item, including their composition, structure, physiochemical properties and sensory attributes.

Focus on making tested good available in the market at a shorter time will encourage investment in destructive testing. Future Market Insights (FMI) identifies this as growth opportunity for the market.

Since the last five years, manufacturers have begun implementing Industry 4.0 norms. This will enable integration of smart digital technologies, machine learning, and big data in physical production and operations in the food industry. This also will offer a more holistic and better connected ecosystem for companies that focus on manufacturing and supply chain management.

Spurred by this, the demand for destructive testing is expected to increase at 6% CAGR in 2021-2031, in comparison to 5.4% CAGR registered in 2016-2020.

What Is the Impact of COVID-19 Crisis on Global Destructive Testing Market?

The destructive testing market growth is expected to be affected by the COVID-19 crisis and is expected to witness a substantial drop in demand in 2020. During this time capital expenditures in research and development of new products for almost entire food industry, including packed food, dairy, and other sectors were suspended which is expected to result in a significant drop in Y-O-Y growth. However, growth is projected to witness a V-shape recovery rate as the economic activity gets back to pre-crisis levels post the containment of pandemic.

Country-wise Insights

What % of Destructive Testing Sales will be based out of U.S.?
