Global food traceability market was valued at $10,963.0 million in 2017, and is expected to reach $22,274.1 million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 9.3% from 2018 to 2025. Food traceability is a risk-management tool used to check potential harms that may be associated with food, feed, food-producing animals, or substance. This is meant to ensure food safety through all stages of food production, processing, and distribution. Food traceability involves food business authorities to recall or drop out products considered unsafe, and allows provision of accurate information to the public. Food traceability prevents transmission of disease from animals to humans and controls the presence of certain chemicals above fixed limits, which when used in excess can affect the quality of products related to feed & food.

The food traceability (tracking technologies) market is growing at a healthy rate owing to increase in awareness about food safety among governments and consumers. Consumers are willing to pay a high price for premium products that support social responsibility traits requiring food tracking and traceability. Moreover, growth in globalization enhances the complexity of supply chain process (from harvest to final sale), leading to high chances of food contamination. This is expected to increase the demand for food traceability and tracking technologies, as it ensures quality and safety of the food supplied, enhances chances of rapid and precise product recalls, and accurately tracks causes of contamination. Furthermore, adoption of traceability systems is expected to enhance supply chain efficiency by providing detailed historical data about timings, condition, handling, and flow of goods. Asia-Pacific is projected to dominate the global market, with China leading the market, owing to its population strength and rise in health concerns.

The global food traceability (tracking technologies) market is analyzed based on equipment, technology, end user, application, and region. Based on equipment, it is divided into PDA with GPS (Personal Digital Assistant with Global Positioning System), thermal printers, 2D & 1D scanners, tags & labels, sensors, and others.
