The end-user of processing machinery products are the food manufacturers. Most of the machinery is not mass-produced but is made in response to individual consumer needs. Due to the vast number of areas that require the use of processing equipment, the market serves a wide range of applications.
The consistently rising demand and consumption of processed foods is a key driver for the market. Despite being a universal phenomenon, this demand is more specific to the developing world. The recent economic success and increasing market openness to foreign goods has radically changed the food processing sector in countries such as India and China. One important consequence of this is the rise in consumption of meat. Meat processing equipment are one of the fastest growing segment, especially in developing countries.
The market also faces several challenges with regard to upgrading the equipment or complete overhaul in certain cases. Much of these changes are made to overcome difficulties associated with production capacity or due to government regulations. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is one such legislation that is expected to have a profound impact for many machinery manufacturers. Processing machinery that comes in direct contact with food face much severe regulations. The increasing consumer focus on quality also implies use of more specialized and sophisticated equipment that are more capital intensive.
The market is segmented on the basis of type, application and geography. On the basis of type, food processing machinery and equipment market occupies the largest share followed by food packaging machinery and market. Utilities category includes all the other types of ancillary machines such as those used to purify air and water. On the basis of application industrial bakery segment occupies the dominant position, with meat processing equipment recording the highest growth rate. The beverage processing segment is an important component but is plagued by market saturation. The dairy segment is expected to grow at an impressive rate due to the increasing preference for high protein diets.
On the basis of geography Europe occupies the dominant market share and houses several of the top market players. Germany, Netherlands and Denmark are the important regions in Europe. Firms belonging to Europe are also major exporters. In Asia- Pacific, China occupies a significant market share and is regarded as the largest manufacturer of processing machinery in the World. Japan and Australia are the other important players in the market.
The large and highly fragmented nature of the market throws up several interesting opportunities. The increased sophistication of the industry has led to a consensus on the need for adopting more automated technologies. Adoption of such technologies is aimed at increasing speed and efficiency. Increasing market penetration in developing regions such as India, Thailand and Indonesia has increased the demand for processing and packaging machinery. Tapping the opportunities presented by such growing regions is considered essential to break the stagnation in the industry.
