Proficiency testing is critical in all pandemic-affected areas. Various organizations are launching programs to help laboratories overcome accreditation barriers, thereby fueling the market. For example, in November 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) collaborated with the Department of Health (DOH) and government entities to provide training and ensure the establishment and certification of testing laboratories.

Foodborne disease outbreaks are expected to increase due to the rising ingestion of contaminated foods that contain bacteria, viruses, chemical substances, and parasites. According to the WHO, nearly 600 million people, or about one out of every 10 people, worldwide contract illnesses by consuming contaminated food, resulting in 420,000 deaths every year. More than 200 diseases, including diarrhea and cancer, can be caused by food pollutants.

Laboratory Proficiency Testing Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities:
