Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aweta, Bühler, Cimbria, Forpak, Meyer, Nikko, Raytec Vision, and SCHULE (Subsidiary of KAHL).
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is advanced detection technology. With the rise in disposable income, there has been an increase in demand for quality food products. There has been a shift in the food industry from using traditional and manual sorting methods to the implementation of automated and intelligent sorting machines. The methods adopted by the agricultural industry such as the use of pesticides and chemicals affect the crops and food products such as grains, fruits, and vegetables. For the process industry such as food, it is crucial to identify the healthy raw materials to manufacture any food product. This industrial requirement has necessitated the development of technology that is used to determine the right food product.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Retrofit activities carried out in aging food processing facilities. The food industry is the oldest industry that has gone through several revolutions such as Green Revolution, White Revolution, and Pink Revolution. Depending on the type of food products manufactured, there have been several changes in the methods of food processing witnessed in the industry. Traditional methods, equipment, and techniques were majorly used in the process of manufacturing. Manual labor was used to execute the operations. However, the introduction of automation in the industry is transforming the aging industry by integrating new methods and technique.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Implementation cost. Implementation of automated machines require investments that are more when compared with the traditional methods and equipment. Also, deploying industrial workers is less costly than implementing industrial automation. These factors prevent small and medium enterprises from implementing latest technologies. The food industry has witnessed the growth of small and medium enterprises that are cost-sensitive.
