The global environmental testing market To grow at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2016 to 2021 Know about the Factors Driving the Market

The global environmental testing market has grown exponentially in the last few years. The market size is projected to reach USD 11.82 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of around 6.9% from 2016 to 2021. Increasing regulations regarding environment protection, and active participation of different government and regulatory bodies to monitor environmental conditions are the major driving factors for this market.

The environmental testing market, based on contaminant, is segmented into microbiological, organic, heavy metals, residues, and solids. Organic contaminants accounted for the largest market share and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the rising concern over health issues caused by breathing low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which is a major organic contaminant, for a long period of time. Volatile organic compounds largely consist of carbon-based chemicals which tend to vaporize from its solid or liquid state under normal atmospheric conditions owing to its low boiling point.

The environmental testing market, based on technology, is segmented into conventional and rapid. Rapid technology accounted for the largest share of the environmental testing market in 2015. The importance of this technology is increasing due to its quick, accurate, and easy-to-use characteristics. The stakeholders demand new emerging technologies for analytical testing and ensure certification denoting high quality of their products. This has been driving the market for rapid technology in environmental testing.
