Food Processing Equipment Market Dynamics
- Rising population as well as rise in per capita income
Population growth, combined with rising per capita disposable income, is expected to increase demand for meat and poultry and consumption of processed foods, boosting market growth over the forecast period.
- Growing demand in various applications
Due to their inherent advantages, such as quality control, durability, hygiene, and preservation, these systems are widely used in various applications, including bakery and confectionery, meat, seafood, and poultry, dairy, and grains. The product is becoming more common in end-use industries, particularly in Asia-Pacific, where rising domestic manufacturing and consumer income levels drive innovation in this sector.
To improve global food security, one must increase pollution control measures and reduce food losses. Standard and advanced processing equipment can quickly achieve these solutions. Over the forecast period, this is expected to create opportunities for equipment manufacturers.
The global food processing equipment market faces significant challenges due to a lack of skilled labor. Lockdowns imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic have shut down operations across economies, causing effective market restraint. Incorporating IoT Technology in the Food Processing space, such as BAADER revamping its Food Processing Equipment into modern digital solutions to create an automated food chain, is expected to drive the market in the coming years positively.

COVID-19 Impact on Food Processing Equipment Market
The virus has significantly impacted the food processing equipment manufacturing industry, causing production and factory operations to be halted. It all started in China, which is the global hub for the supply of raw materials to companies, and then spread to the entire supply chain for manufacturing companies. Furthermore, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) predicts that global FDI will fall by 5% to 15% due to a drop in manufacturing company operations due to factory shutdown. As a result, the COVID-19 outbreak is expected to slow global investment in the food processing equipment manufacturing sector. This scenario has reduced demand for food processing equipment, particularly in 2020.
