Environmental Testing Overview

In recent years, environmental testing has changed drastically owing to the recent development in technology and innovation in products. New products have been launched in the market which are used in environment testing such as digital lux meters, laser distance meter, refractometers and electrosmog meter among others. The technological focus from conventional environmental testing methods such as Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) has been shifting towards innovative rapid testing methods as they are efficient and generate results within a few hours.

Rapid testing methods ensure the analysis of a larger sample size, and thereby reduce the time required for sample testing. Advanced technologies also ensure the detection of microbial as well as chemical contaminants present in the samples even if they have very low level of presence. Furthermore, simultaneous detection of all contaminants present in the samples can reduce the number of tests required, thus saving time and cost of each test conducted.

Additionally, companies are shifting priorities by using business intelligence to not only save on costs but to also become environmentally aware. Business intelligence’s ability to keep track of performance, as well as alert decision makers on behavioural changes, make it a complementary approach as demonstrated by the desire by many companies to become more eco-friendly. Increasing advancements in computers and computer software are also profoundly affecting the laboratory industry. However, it has been observed that the environmental lab business and instrumentation suppliers have been relatively slow in advancing towards computational power. Individual lab instruments have possessed computer control and data collection capabilities for large time thereby reducing costs and boost operating efficiencies. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the global environmental testing market in the recent years. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT

Market Drivers and Challenges

Growth Indicators

Growing Stringent Regulations for the Environment

Ever since the first major environmental regulations were enacted in the 1970s, there have been concerns about their potential impacts on businesses. Environmental regulations have greatly improved air and water quality, especially in areas that were the dirtiest before regulation.The Environmental Protection Act authorizes the government to control and reduce pollution from all sources, protect and improve environmental quality, and prohibit or restrict the setting and/or operation of any industrial facility on environmental grounds. Environmental impact assessments examine the potential consequences under specific scenarios of the results of an action. On the other hand, development of the Environmental Democracy Index (EDI), which is an online platform that tracks and scores the progress of 70 countries in enacting national laws to promote transparency, accountability and citizen engagement in environmental decision making is further raising awareness for the environment.

Growing Concern for the Impact on Health Owing to Pollution

Urbanization and industrialization along with the economic development have led to the increase in energy consumption and waste discharges. Environmental pollutants have various adverse health effects,such as, perinatal disorders, infant mortality, respiratory disorders, allergy, malignancies, cardiovascular disorders, increase in stress oxidative, endothelial dysfunction, mental disorders, and various other harmful effects. The increasing concern amongst individuals for such harmful diseases on the back of the increasing pollution worldwide is anticipated to drive the need for environmental testing, which in turn will drive the market growth.


High Cost of Test and Equipment

Environmental testing procedures cost extremely high. The extensive sample preparation requires the laboratory analysts to use advanced testing technologies. The instruments used in environmental testing such as RT-PCR testing, mass spectrometers and molecular spectroscopy productsare extremely costly and also require highly skilled person to conduct and operate testing procedures. Such factors are anticipated to hinder the growth of the global environmental testing market.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the affluent industry leaders in the global environmental testing market are Intertek Group PLC, bioMérieux SA, Eurofins Scientific, Microbac Laboratories, Inc., R J Hill Laboratories Limited, Symbio Laboratories, SGS SA, AB Sciex Pte. Ltd., and Suburban Testing Labs.
