The Food Processor and Blender Manufacturing industry has slowly but steadily increased over the past five years. Overseas manufacturers have posed a threat to industry operators that are unable to compete on the basis of price. Consequently, while makers of premium appliances have generally done well as disposable income levels and healthy-eating trends increased, lower-end products have largely been replaced by less expensive foreign alternatives, forcing companies to exit the industry.
This industry manufactures electric- and motor-driven appliances used in food preparation. More specifically, companies in the industry manufacture blenders, food processors, stand mixers, slicers, whippers, tenderizers, molders and a variety of other appliances (e.g. ice crushers) used in slicing, chopping, grinding, shredding, pureeing, crushing and mixing food items.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
