Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Fruit and Vegetable Processing Market is accounted for $8.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $14.1 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period. Fruit and vegetable processing improves storage life and quality. Fruit and vegetable processing is particularly beneficial in terms of vitamin, nutrition, and flavour retention. The processed foods are kept in cans as pulp fruit pieces or juices. Drying, freezing, and preparing jellies, juices, or jams are examples of processing procedures. The rise in per capita income of many households, as well as an increase in disposable money, has created prospects for the growth of this sector.
According to the Vegan Society, the number of consumers identifying themselves as vegans in the Great Britain rose sharply from 150 thousand in 2014 to 600 thousand in 2018.
Demand for convenience foods is increasing
The processed food sector is being pushed by the increased need for convenience as a result of busy client lifestyles. Furthermore, rising per-capita income has increased demand for ready-to-eat and on-the-go food items. As a result, demand for processed fruit and vegetable products has increased. Because of the substantial development in the fruit and vegetable processing sector, the outlook for the growth of the fruit and vegetable processing market is expected to stay good. Consumers profit from purchasing processed food goods since they are easier to use, eat, and store for a longer period of time. Comfort foods, such as fruit drinks, saw an increase in demand. This has aided the growth of the fruit and vegetable processing market.
Food recall incidences
Food recalls occur when food products become contaminated as a result of a breakdown or breach in the supply chain. A food recall is defined by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) as action taken to remove dangerous food from sale, distribution, and consumption that may represent a safety risk to people. A food recall is launched as a result of a report or complaint regarding the product's quality. The person affiliated with the product, such as manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, government agencies, and customers, may make a complaint. Recalls are carried out to prevent the consumption of potentially dangerous or unhealthy foods which hampers the market.
Vegan food products are becoming increasingly popular
There is a rising interest in the creation and manufacture of plant-based meat substitutes. In addition, demand for meat and dairy products is predicted to fall in the United States. Plant-based food manufacturers are profiting on the usage of fruits and vegetables, legumes, and pulses; they are also considering fruit-based goods due to their nutritional composition and higher functionality, which can result in texture and flavour enhancements creating wide range of opportunities in the future.
Infections and physiological deterioration
The fresh fruit and vegetables value chain is a fundamental and significant part of agricultural production. It influences, among other things, the quality of products for customers, farmer profit margins, and export circumstances and implications for a country. Normal physiological alterations caused by factors that accelerate the rate of natural degradation, such as elevated temperature, low air humidity, and physical injury, might raise the risk of loss. When fresh produce is subjected to temperature extremes, atmospheric manipulation, or contamination, aberrant physiological degradation is frequently observed. This may result in undesirable flavours, inability to ripen, or other alterations in the produce's biological processes, rendering it unsuitable for use thus hindering the market growth.
The COVID-19 epidemic has resulted in a significant shift in consumer purchase patterns. Most customers around the world are looking for fresh foods to replace junk food. The global market for processed fruits and vegetables is expanding in order to increase immunity. Automation and robots are increasingly being used in industries that prepare fruits and vegetables, which help to reduce costs while increasing productivity.
The Homogenizers segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The Homogenizers segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to their ability to improve a food product's visual attributes. It is possible to improve flavour, texture, colour, functionality quality, and value by making particle sizes smaller and more homogeneous. Current mixing technology also makes it possible to incorporate any additives, emulsifiers, flavour enhancers, preservatives, or fortifying ingredients seamlessly. Again, consistency is essential. Aesthetic appeal may diminish if additives are not fully and smoothly introduced. If necessary, the best homogenising processing equipment can also operate at controlled temperatures.
The Pulsed Electric Field Processing (PEF) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The Pulsed Electric Field Processing (PEF) segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, due to non-thermal technique for food preservation that uses short electrical pulses to inactivate bacteria while having little effect on food quality features. PEF technology strives to provide high-quality foods to consumers. PEF technology has been promoted as superior than heat treatments, for example, since it eliminates germs while better preserving the original colour, flavour, texture, and nutritional content of the uncooked food. PEF processing is a new food pasteurisation technique that employs short periods of high intensity electric fields on foods to produce desired microbiological inactivation or food structural change.
Region with highest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the expansion of this market in the Asia Pacific region is aided by several government initiatives that support technical improvements in the region. Fruit and vegetable output is high in countries such as Japan, China, and India when compared to other crops. Because of the existence of key market participants in this region, the Asia Pacific region's developing nations are investigating the industry. The Asia Pacific region's developing nations are investigating the industry. Although if the cultivation of fruits and vegetables is high in many countries, such as India, there is a growing demand for processed fruits and vegetables due to a better lifestyle and high disposable income of many customers are driving the market.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the European market for processed fruits and vegetables is reaching saturation. Another factor driving expansion in the Asia Pacific processed fruit and vegetable industry is rapid urbanisation and rising per capita income. Dual income households and hectic lives, among other aspects, are aiding market expansion. Processed food is becoming more popular in developing nations since it saves time and is incredibly handy for working-class people. The existence of numerous domestic and foreign market participants in the sector is boosting the market.
