The global food automation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2020 to 2027 to reach $29.4 billion by 2027. Succeeding an extensive secondary and primary research and in-depth analysis of the market scenario, the report carries out an impact analysis of the key industry drivers, restraints, and opportunities.



The growing adoption of digitized technologies, automated processing, and logistics systems & standards for food & beverage quality maintenance is one of the major drivers for this market. However, the requirement of high initial investment for automation of food & beverage manufacturing facilities is expected to hinder the growth of this market to a certain extent.

Stringent government regulations related to food safety & consumption is driving the food automation market. The number of patients due to the consumption of contaminated food is rising rapidly across the globe. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 600 million people worldwide fall ill after eating contaminated food, and 420,000 die every year. The increasing concern for food safety & hygiene and imposition of regulations has fueled automation usage in the food and beverage industry. Government agencies and food & beverage associations have implemented food safety standards globally to ensure healthy food & beverages and reduce illness. The regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) have applied strict regulations on food safety and packaging. These regulations have resulted in the adoption of automated systems and food management solutions that will maintain the quality of products and enable safe interaction of human laborers in the production process.

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically hit several manufacturing and processing industries across the globe. Food & beverage processing and packaging companies have faced huge losses during the first & quarter of 2020 due to disrupted supply chains and production schedules. The rapid spread of coronavirus in the U.S., Europe, and Asian economies resulted in nationwide lockdowns and a temporary halt of production facilities to prevent further spread. The market is expected to gain pace in 2021 due to the need for limited human intervention in F&B manufacturing to limit the spread of the virus. This will result in the implementation of food automation systems across various end-user facilities globally.

Based on component, the food automation market is segmented into plant instrumentation, plant-level controls, and enterprise-level controls. The plant-level controls segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR by 2027 due to increased demand for PLC, SCADA, and DCS solutions. Utilization of SCADA in F&B production offers benefits, such as recipe recreation, packaging, maintaining quality standards, and production statistics visualization. SCADA aids manufacturers to recreate the recipes according to the consumer requirements and aid in increasing the productivity of non-flexible production systems.

Based on the mode of operation, the market is segmented into semi-automatic and fully-automatic modes. In 2020, the semi-automatic segment is projected to account for the largest share of the food automation market. The semi-automatic systems allow companies to use data analytics & process management software and human interaction in processing activities.

Based on application, the food automation market comprises of packaging & repacking, palletizing & depalletizing, grading & sorting, pick & place, butchery, and other applications. The packaging and repacking segment is expected to grow at the highest rate owing to the implementation of industrial robots and software-based solutions that track the quality & quantity of cartooning, wrapping, labeling, sealing, and inspecting products.

An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of the food automation market provides detailed qualitative and quantitative insights about the five major geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa) along with the coverage of major countries in each region. In 2020, Asia-Pacific is projected to command the largest share of the food automation market, followed by Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East &Africa.
