Consumers read about the number of outbreaks across the globe related to pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E. coli which leads to a rise in concern about the source of the food and safety hazards that could be associated with its consumption. In addition to this, globalization has had a major impact on food supply worldwide and has increased the global import & export of food products and agricultural commodities.

The salmonella segment by pathogenic to account for the largest growth in the enteric disease testing market.

The salmonella segment dominated the enteric disease testing market. The type is mostly found in meat, poultry, milk, and eggs. Undercooked meat and eggs or raw dairy products have been responsible for major outbreaks of Salmonella foodborne illnesses. Other transmission routes of Salmonella in humans include cross-contamination and direct person-to-person transmission via touch. The US Centers for Disease Control gets about 42,000 reports of Salmonella each year. It is found to be common in the summer than in winter, with actual cases estimated to be more than 1.2 million.

Foodborne diseases majorly tend to cause by Salmonella, which is recognized and monitored as foodborne infections. Increasing transportation of food products such as meat, seafood which provides scope for various processes ranging from packaging, handling, storing and transportation, leading to food infestation.
