In 2020, European Innovation Council awarded US$ 3.0 Mn to SwissDeCode for the development of rapid on-site food testing and certification platform. The company is focused to launch a fully automated system that will perform the same test as laboratories, including certification, in a fraction of the time and directly at the point of need.
Increasing government spending on development R&D facilities is resulting in players focus on the development of new testing and treatment methods. In 2021, Thermo Fisher Scientific, a global healthcare product & service provider launched RapidFinder Salmonella Multiplex Kit with the focus to detect Salmonella species, such as Typhimurium and Enteritidis in under 16 hours. This is expected to augment the growth of target market. Factors such as lack of developed food control resources and infrastructure in developing countries is expected to hamper the growth of global salmonella treatment market. However, increasing investment by major players for development of advanced testing methods, developing food regulations and rise in awareness among consumers related to treatment are factors expected to create new opportunities for players operating in the target market over the forecast period. In addition, major players approach towards enhancing the business through strategic merger is expected to support the revenue transaction of the salmonella treatment market.
