Food Industry Overview
Machinery demand from food processors has remained relatively resilient due to the introduction of a growing product range, namely healthy products packaged for convenience. Low-fat baked chips and low-calorie, small-portion snack packs have successfully catered to health-conscious consumers, while adhering to widespread demand for affordability. These trends have supported demand for food-processing machinery.
Improved economic conditions are expected to continue to drive growing downstream demand for food machinery, as manufacturers experience the benefits of increased consumer spending. Strengthening consumer demand will flow up the supply chain, lifting industrial production; in turn, demand for manufacturing machinery will increase. Additionally, new technology and food safety concerns will continue to benefit the food processing segment. In particular, demand for easy-to-clean equipment will rise in light of greater public and government scrutiny surrounding food safety and hygiene. Finally, demand for food processing equipment will rise as innovation continues and new products adapt to address these concerns.
Growth is projected through 2021.
