Food allergy is characterized as an immune reaction which may be developed by the intake of a food allergen. It is reported that food-allergens may trigger signs and symptoms of digestive problems, hives, or swollen airways, besides others. In some people, food allergy may even result in a life-threatening reaction including anaphylaxis. The increasing prevalence of food allergy and growing adoption of labeling-compliance are expected to be the major drivers for the market growth during the forecast period. According to the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy in 2016, food allergy was reported in approximately 1 in 20 children and about 2 in 100 adults. Moreover, the growing pediatric population, the increasing prevalence of asthma, the rising healthcare expenditure, implementation of stringent food safety regulations, and others boost the market growth. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the pediatric population is estimated to increase from 73.6 million in 2015 to 75.0 million by 2025. Moreover, according to the Food Standards Agency from 2015 to 2016, the total number of enforcement actions for food hygiene and food standards was estimated to increase from 181,877 in 2015 to 191,719 in 2016.
However, factors such as low awareness and lack of food control infrastructure and resources in the middle- and low-income countries are estimated to restrain the market growth during the projected period.
