Environmental Testing Market

Global Environmental Testing Market was valued at ~US$ 6 billion in 2020 and is anticipated display a CAGR of around 7.2% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Environmental testing lab sector is exceptional, for which the major driver is expected to be the governmental regulation, these sometime acts to inhibit innovation and slow the pace of technological advancement in dealing with environmental problems. Lack of flexibility inherent in governmental regulatory schemes also, acts in many cases in removing incentives for environmental testing labs and instrumentation suppliers to explore innovative approaches and improve monitoring capabilities for environmental contaminants. US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been active in recent pasts, through programs such as the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) program, as an attempt to promote a suitable approach for the application of new technologies to environmental assessments and contaminant eliminations.
