Drivers: Global Bakery Processing Equipment Market

RISING DEMAND FOR BAKERY PRODUCTS:

The demand for bakery products is increasing. There is a rising demand for the healthy and functional bakery items like products which consists of multi grains, nuts and other healthy products which needs technologically developed equipment. The consumers are purchasing more bakery products due to a greater variety and novelty of items available in the market.

  • As per the Federation of Bakers, in U.K. 2016, it is anticipated that wrapped bread is purchased by 96.7% every year and every household spending about USD 69.56 per year on bread. As the consumption of bread is increasing, the demand for breads would also increase thereby raising the demand of bread processing equipment.

Thus we can clearly state with the above statistics that with the increase in the demand of bakery items, there is growing adoption of new methods, technologies and machinery in the bakery industry which is ultimately fueling the growth of the market.

SHIFTING PREFERENCE TOWARDS MULTI-GRAIN BREADS:

The consumption patterns of breads are changing owing to the changing consumer preferences as they are shifting away from the white breads towards more multigrain, wholegrain, specialty, ethnic and seeded breads. This changing pattern is driven by the consumer’s desire for nutritious and healthier products, freshness and also more complex flavor profiles.

Health and wellness are the new key factors for the bakery sector with companies manufacturing fortified and healthier products. The usages of lesser known grains such as millet and ragi have gained popularity among the baked products segment. Many companies are manufacturing multigrain breads owing to their increasing preference among the consumers. For instance, Britannia offers Nutrichoice range, multigrain range by GAIA and Unibic, Farmlite by Sunfeast, McVitie’s Digestive, Jorwekar Baking Company offers multigrain bread and wholemeal & oats breads and many others.

Thus many people are focusing on purchasing the multi-grain breads which in turn increases the usage of bakery production equipment.

Restraints:

OCCUPATIONAL HAZARDS IN THE BAKERY PRODUCTION PROCESS:

Proper maintenance of the machines and critical hygiene control are the important factors which have to be considered in the production of bakery products. It’s a matter of protecting the health of the people through a clean and hygienic environment. Every bakery production procedure consists of different types of hazards which would affect in the production of bakery products.

All the equipment which is used in the bakery production should be audited regularly and any sign of the deteriorations must be fixed directly. Many hazards in the production process can be avoided with the implementation of the effective prerequisite programme which includes pest control, waste control and cleaning programmes.

The bakers can suffer from the allergies generally of the skin and the respiratory system which is caused by the substances that are used in the baking process. There are various other accidental, physical, chemical, biological hazards and ergonomic, organizational and psychosocial factors that might occur in the bakery production process.

Thus we can conclude that for a good hygienic structure the efforts from all the parties are involved for preserving the brand, product’s reputation and also the consumer’s health. Starting from top level management to all the employees, the people of a bakery manufacturing factory must follow the precaution measures for maintaining a healthy environment and for preserving the high bakery production level.

HIGH FIXED COST AND MAINTENANCE OF EQUIPMENT:

The bakery processing equipment is expensive and is continuing to increase owing to the technological advancements in the equipment. The costs of the equipment would differ based on the processes and different features incorporated in it.

Nowadays various technologically advanced equipment are being developed by the companies such as the robotic systems due to which the prices of the machines will be higher owing to its developed features. As the prices of machines are high, many companies do not have enough investment for purchasing such costly machines to manufacture the bakery products.

Other expenses such as maintenance cost, installation charges and after sales services also incur which increases the cost of the overall bakery processing equipment. Thus, the increasing cost of bakery processing equipment will hamper the market growth.

Opportunity:

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS AND INCREASING RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY:

Innovations help in enhancing the production processes and extending the scope of new product advancements in the bakery processing equipment sector. The companies are continuously investing in the research and developmental activities for more innovations in the product line and technological developments in the equipment.

Robots are useful in the pick-and-place applications like placing delicate iced-buns to the pockets of the plastic trays earlier to the wrapping of products in the final packaging. Automation, robots, real-time adaptive intelligence and data transparency can considerably contribute to the baker’s long-term sustainability.

Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany) and ALFA LAVAL (Sweden) are among the major companies producing the bakery processing equipment and GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft (Germany), Candy Worx (U.S.) and The Middleby Corporation (U.S.) are among the other companies. These companies are adopting various strategies by investing in research and development activities of the companies such as product launch, collaboration, acquisition and partnership.

Thus, increasing research and developmental expense will lead to the launch of new innovative products and will also help in expanding the product portfolio. This would also help in technological advancement of products enhancing the bakery processing equipment market growth.

Challenge:

LOWER SHELF-LIFE OF THE BAKERY PRODUCTS:

Bakery products act as an important part of the balanced diet and include a broad range of such products. This consists of unsweetened goods such as bread, rolls, muffins, bagels, buns and crumpets, sweet goods such as pancakes, waffles, cookies and doughnuts and filled goods such as fruit & meat pies, pastries, sandwiches, sausage rolls, pizza, quiche and cream cakes. However, the bakery products like various processed food products are subject to chemical, microbiological and physical spoilage.

While chemical and physical spoilage restricts the shelf life of the lower and intermediate moisture bakery food products, the microbiological spoilage by yeast, molds and bacteria is the main concern in the higher moisture products. Moreover, several bakery products have also been implicated in the foodborne illnesses including Listeria monoctyogenes, Bacillus cereus and Salmonella spp.

Hence, various methods should be adopted for enhancing the properties, freshness and shelf life of the bakery products. Thus, the lower shelf life can act as challenging factor for the bakery processing equipment market thereby reducing the demand for bakery products.
