New Food Processing Factories in Central Asia Help Manufacturers Gain Monopoly

There is the growing emergence of new potato processing factories in Central Asia. Ever-increasing population growth is one of the key factors for the increased consumption of potatoes. Thus, manufacturers in the potato flakes market are eyeing strategic growth in Central Asia, since there aren’t many large-scale food processing factories in the region. In this way, they are able to gain a monopoly in the region’s market landscape. In order to achieve dominance in the region, manufacturers in the potato flakes ecosystem are streamlining their production activities by utilizing the best potatoes grown in domestic farms. This is justified, since the organic production of potato flakes is gaining impetus on a global level, as compared to the production of conventionally-produced potatoes.

The potato flakes market is flourishing in Central Asia due to increasing population growth. Companies in the potato flakes landscape have seen a shift in the production practices of the region, since increased population has led to the large-scale cultivation of potatoes. As such, companies are adopting modern technologies of cultivation, such as mechanized irrigation and harvesting. They are importing high-quality potatoes from other counties to strengthen the domestic supply chain in countries in Central Asia.

Newer Technologies Contribute to Energy Efficiency and Reduce Environmental Impact

Certain challenges in the potato flakes landscape are predicted to negatively influence market growth. For instance, rapid development of food factories in developed and developing economies has added to the environmental stress. Due to this, strict regulations have been implemented by governments to minimize the environmental impact caused as a result of pollution, emissions, and excessive energy and water consumption. The emergence of new potato processing factories is contributing to the global revenue growth of the potato flakes market. But factors such as solid waste generation and negative impacts on the aquatic habitat have given rise to strict regulations in the potato flakes space.

There is the growing need to improve water and energy efficiency for potato processing factories. To overcome the challenges in food processing, companies in the potato flakes market are adopting two key operations - non-thermal processing and membrane processes. To achieve higher water efficiency, companies are practicing reconditioning treatments that help reuse water for other purposes than just potato processing. To reduce the volumes of food processing waste, companies in the potato flakes market are relying on the production of renewable energy, since potatoes are rich in various carbohydrates such as starch, cellulose, and hemicellulose. These practices help improve the bottom line of companies. Newer technologies such as molecular interactions via microwaves are gaining increased acceptance to achieve energy efficiency. Non-thermal methods also provide increased energy efficiency, and help minimize the impact on the nutritional and sensory attributes of food products.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The growing trend of ready-to-eat food is one of the key drivers for the exponential growth of the potato flakes market. Consumers are exploring ingenious ways to use instant potato flakes to make crispy meat cuisines, and provide the added texture and consistency in meals. However, potatoes are found to have increased amounts of carbohydrates and fat, which is creating a resistance for their adoption from health-conscious consumers. Hence, companies are capitalizing on alternative requirements, such as the growing need for potato starch, which serves as a substitute to processed potato flour. Companies should focus on increasing their production capabilities in regions such as Central Asia that are comparatively lenient in terms of import and export tariff duties.
