This report forecasts global demand in 2021 for food processing machinery by product and major world region in US dollars at the manufacturers' level. Product segments include: industrial baking machinery; meat, poultry, and seafood machinery; beverage production machinery; chocolate and confectionery machinery; dairy and milk machinery; fruit, nut, and vegetable machinery; other food processing machinery; and food processing machinery parts and attachments.
Excluded from the scope of this study are machinery designed for and used primarily in nonmanufacturing settings (e.g., farms, food service operations, grocery stores, and other settings where the capabilities of industrial-grade equipment are warranted) such as milking machines, restaurant cooking and heating equipment, retail bakery ovens and bread slicers); non-industrial food processing machinery used in food and beverage manufacturing facilities (e.g., residential or commercial-type microwave ovens installed in employee lunchrooms); refrigeration equipment designed for food storage applications (as opposed to processing line chiller and freezers); packaging and associated line machinery (e.g., bottling and filling equipment, case loading machines, conveyors, labeling and coding equipment); used food processing machinery; related services such as equipment rebuilding; and retrofitting systems integration. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.
To illustrate historical trends, world, product, and regional demand (including product segments) are provided for 2006, 2011, and 2016. Finally, global production is segmented by major world region and provided for 2006, 2011, 2016, and 2021.
