Environmental testing market projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9%

The environmental testing market is projected to reach USD 11.82 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2016 to 2021. The market is driven by factors such as deteriorating environment, privatization of environmental testing services, and increasing regulations regarding environment protection. The high growth potential in emerging markets and untapped regions provides new opportunities for market players.

Organic contaminant segment expected to be the largest contaminant type in the environmental testing market through 2021

The organic contaminant type was the largest market in 2015. Testing for organic compounds basically includes tests of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The risk of health problems is most likely to increase by breathing low levels of VOCs for a long period of time. Several studies have suggested that exposure to VOCs may worsen the symptoms in people who are asthmatic or are sensitive to chemicals. The effect of every chemical is different and is attributed to its toxicity. The rising concerns over health issues due to organic contaminants are expected to drive its testing services market.

Rapid technology led the market with the largest share in 2015

On the basis of technology, the environmental testing market was led by the rapid technology segment in 2015. The market is growing due to the requirement of quick, accurate, easy-to-use, and reduced total cost method of testing.

North America led the market with the largest share in 2015

North America was the largest environmental testing market in 2015. Governing organizations are present in the market and have enforced various environment protection policies. The North American environmental testing market addresses various environmental issues such as climate change, acid rain reduction, and greenhouse gas emissions. The Asia-Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.

The breakdown of the primaries on the basis of company, designation, and region, conducted during the research study, is as mentioned below.
