The global market for Food Processing Machinery and Equipment is projected to reach US$89 billion by 2024, driven by the ever-present consumer demand for convenience food and the resulting growth in production of processed foods and beverages. Consumerism in the food industry is the single most important trend providing the foundation for growth in the market. The growing variety of specialized processed food products is driving demand for customized equipment solutions. Other major factors driving growth in the market include strong demand for automated equipment capable of offering cost and efficiency benefits; and developments in new equipment materials and design technology. Growing concerns over food contamination and the emphasis placed on equipment longevity and anti-corrosion features are forecast to help drive demand for equipment manufactured from stainless steel. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 8.8% over the analysis period led by factors such as vast population base; changing consumer lifestyles and dietary patterns; increasing disposable income and the ensuing increase in per capita spending on processed foods; implementation of food security policies and the resulting industrial mass production of food in developing Asian markets; and growing presence of export oriented meat, poultry and seafood processing companies in the region.
