World Food Processing Machinery

Gains in the world food processing machinery market will average 7.6 percent per annum during the 2014-2019 period, reaching $73 billion. Gains will be driven by increasing global demand for processed food and beverage products. Additionally, many suppliers of processed foods in developing nations will shift from manual food processing to mechanical techniques in order to boost the efficiency of their operations. Initiatives by governments and major multinationals aimed at developing the meat and dairy industries around the world will stimulate processing machinery sales as well.

This report segments the global food processing industry by product type. Data is provided in millions of US dollars.

Major food processing machinery products covered in this study include:
Industrial Baking Machinery
Meat, Poultry, & Seafood Machinery
Beverage Production Machinery
Chocolate & Confectionery Machinery
Dairy & Milk Machinery
Fruit & Vegetable Machinery
Other Food Processing Machinery
Parts & Attachments

Industrial baking machinery will remain the most widely used type of food processing equipment globally through 2019, accounting for nearly one-fifth of the market total. Sales of chocolate and confectionary, and beverage machinery will expand at the fastest pace from 2014 to 2019. As personal incomes grow in developing nations, spending on nonessential items -- such as processed beverages, and chocolate and confectionary products -- will increase, pushing suppliers to invest in new machinery.

Historical demand and forecasts for 20 countries in the following regions are presented:
North America
Western Europe
Asia/Pacific
Central & South America
Eastern Europe
Africa/Mideast

The Africa/Mideast, Asia/Pacific, and Central and South America regions are forecast to see the fastest growth through 2019. Advances in the North American food processing machinery market are expected to slow noticeably, following a period of strong growth. In contrast, market gains in Western Europe will accelerate between 2014 and 2019 because of improving economic conditions and rising consumer spending.

The world food processing industry consists of thousands of manufacturers, ranging from small, privately held companies to large, fully integrated multinational corporations. A number of major acquisitions and divestitures have occurred in recent years. Among the world’s leading suppliers of food processing machinery are Ali, Bucher Industries, Bühler, CIMC Enric, GEA Group, John Bean Technologies, Marel, Satake, SPX, and Tetra Laval.
