Triveni Triveni
Published on Apr 20, 2023

The Food Allergen Testing Market has exhibited significant robustness in size in 2021, with expectations of a rapid revenue CAGR over the forecast period. The primary driver of revenue growth in the Food Allergen Testing Market is the increasing number of food allergy patients worldwide.

When an individual experiences an unexpected immune response after consuming a specific food, this is known as a food allergy. The exact cause of this rare immune response is still unknown. Even a small amount of food intake can trigger digestive problems and potentially result in a life-threatening reaction. Food allergy is often misinterpreted as food intolerance. Common symptoms of food allergy include itching in the mouth, hives, eczema, swelling of the lips, face, tongue, and throat, nasal congestion, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, and dizziness. Milk, eggs, soy, and wheat are among the most common food allergens.

The forecast period is expected to witness lucrative growth opportunities in the Food Allergen Testing Market due to technological advancements in the treatment of food allergy, improved healthcare facilities resulting from increased research and drug development for the treatment, and government initiatives aimed at spreading awareness about the symptoms and available treatments for food allergy. Additionally, the increase in healthcare investment is also expected to contribute to the growth of the market.

North America is the largest regional market for food allergy, with the highest revenue share. The growth in revenue in North America can be attributed to the rising healthcare expenditure, increasing awareness about food allergy, and the growing incidence of food allergy in the region.

The Asia Pacific Food Allergen Testing Market is expected to register the fastest revenue growth rate over the forecast period. The market growth is attributed to the rising number of patients with food allergies, government initiatives to promote awareness, and the increasing demand for treatment in the region. The presence of a large population is also expected to positively impact the growth of the Food Allergen Testing Market.
