 Agricultural Testing Market
Spectrometry chromatographic technologies contributed to the fastest growing rapid technology market in agriculture testing
The agricultural testing services market, by technology, has been segmented into conventional and rapid. The rapid technology segment is estimated to dominate the market in 2017, and is projected to grow at a higher CAGR by 2022. This can be attributed to low turnaround time, higher accuracy, sensitivity, and ability to test a wide range of bacteria in comparison to conventional technological methods.
The safety testing is projected to be the fastest growing market in application segment
The agricultural testing market, by application, has been segmented into safety testing and quality assurance. The global market, by application, was dominated by the quality assurance segment in 2016. The dominance of quality assurance in agricultural testing is attributable to the fact that it aids in proactively resolving major problems related to soil fertility, available water quality for irrigational facilities, and identifying required nutrients essential for a more robust growth and development of crops and other agricultural produce. The market for safety testing is projected to be the fastest-growing during the forecast period. Safety testing of agricultural samples is conducted to test samples for targets such as toxins, pathogens, heavy metals, pesticides, GMOs, and other organic contaminants.
Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period
The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022.
