Since the beginning of 2019, food safety related issues have repeatedly made headlines. In order to strengthen the supervision of food safety, the government also issued a number of notices. In response to the government's call to reduce food safety problems, China's demand for food safety testing equipment is increasing.
No matter whether the processing of food is complicated or simple, it is impossible to completely avoid pollution from the outside world. Excessive microbial contamination, heavy metal pollution, residues of agricultural and veterinary drugs, and residues of foreign bodies are common factors that cause food safety problems. Different instruments for different food testing require different instruments. Microbiological testing usually uses a food safety rapid detector; heavy metal content detection has a special heavy metal detector; agricultural veterinary drug residue detection can use liquid chromatograph; foreign matter detection can use X-ray foreign object detector..... .
The innovation of these food testing instruments not only shows the continuous innovation and development of food safety testing technology, but also the result of the continuous development of China's food testing market. Although China started late in the food safety testing industry, its development in research and application fields is very rapid, testing technology is increasing, testing speed is increasing, and food safety testing instruments are becoming more portable and practical.
According to the data released by the Prospective Research Institute, the market size of China's food safety testing in 2014 was only 14 billion yuan. As of 2017, the market size of China's food safety testing reached 56.1 billion yuan. In recent years, the growth rate of China's food safety testing market has remained at around 20%, showing a trend of steady and sustained growth. However, compared with the international food safety testing market, China's food safety testing market is limited in size and needs further development.
For some high-end food safety testing instruments, China relies more on imports. According to the data, in 2017, the export scale of China's detection and analysis instruments was only 1.228 billion US dollars, and the import scale reached 6.938 billion US dollars. In order to shorten the trade gap between import and export and promote market development, the government has continuously increased its support for food safety testing equipment manufacturing enterprises, invested in the research and development of technology in the form of scientific and technological projects, and urged enterprises to establish relevant institutions for testing technology development. .
In addition to government policy support, accurately grasping the market demand for food safety testing equipment is also an important way for enterprises to develop their own scale. Nowadays, as the country's regulation of food safety issues is tightened, food companies are paying more and more attention to the safety of their products. While the food safety testing market is expanding, food safety testing equipment is also required to be more efficient and portable, and the equipment functions are more powerful.
In addition, imported high-end food safety testing instruments, although more powerful, but not only high prices, maintenance costs are not low, will cause a certain burden on food companies. This has given China a small breakthrough in low-end food safety testing equipment. Food safety testing equipment manufacturers can use low-end food safety testing equipment as another development direction, using domestic low-end food safety testing equipment models. , cost-effective and other advantages to enhance their market competitiveness.
Food safety is a hot issue in society, and food safety testing equipment is an important equipment to ensure food safety. Today, China's food safety testing market is not only fast-growing, but also has great development potential. Relevant enterprises want to expand their scale, and they cannot rely solely on government support, but must also firmly grasp market demand.
