A food processor is a kitchen appliance that allows the user to easily and quickly perform monotonous food preparation activities such as chopping, grinding, and slicing. Food processors are the equipment that helps to convert raw food ingredients into food items through physical and chemical procedures. Food processors come in various categories such as dryers, mixers, chillers, feeders, ovens, fryers, grinders, homogenizers, separators, roasters and slicers. These are used in various industries including poultry farms, dairy industry, seafood industry, industrial bakeries, beverage industry, chocolate manufacturing units, fruit, milk, and nut. Stainless steel is one of the fundamental elements, widely used in food processing equipment. Food processors have various automation control systems such as heating, cooking, evaporation, pasteurization, freezing, and drying. These processors also need high maintenance, gentle handling and control of temperature and pressure. Food processing equipment is often combined with high-speed packaging and labeling equipment in various industries.
Growing demand for packaged and processed food products in developing countries is the fundamental factor driving the food processors market. Concerns about safety of food products, and change in taste and preferences of domestic consumers have resulted in increasing demand for packaged and processed foods. Product varieties, changing consumer lifestyles, increasing disposal incomes, and innovation in technology are some of the key factors responsible for the growth of the global food processors market. Growing income of individual leads to increasing investments in food processors. With innovations in technology related to cutting, grinding and slicing, food processing manufacturers are replacing their older equipment with newer ones. However, food processors are usually noisy and also harder to clean because of their sharp blades. This may hinder the global food processor market. The latest trend in the global food processors market is automated food processors. These processors eliminate manual labor and improve quality and efficiency and need less time to prepare food.
The global food processors market can be segmented by product type, application, and geography. On the basis of product type, the market can be segmented as bowl type food processors, continuous feed food processors, and choppers. The continuous feed processors segment is expected to expand significantly during the forecast period owing to benefits such as high durability, variety of products, and cost effectiveness. On the basis of application, the global food processor market can be segmented into dairy, bakery, poultry, meat, and seafood. Meat and seafood segment is anticipated to expand greatly. Meat and seafood processors help to maintain hygiene and also ensure that the processing activities are performed on time. Thus, processing companies are able to deliver high quality products to consumers, thereby increasing the demand for meat and seafood processors. In terms of geography, the global food processor market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific region is expected to lead the market during the forecast period owing to the increasing population and disposable income and changing lifestyles. The market in North America is also expected to grow at a significant rate due to the growing awareness about food safety and high economy.
