Factors responsible for driving growth of the industry are the increased consumption of processed food, government support for equipment use in developing countries, demand for food safety and safety of workers, presence of small and medium enterprises in developing countries, rising raw material costs, and international trade rules.
The Global Poultry Processing Equipment Market was valued at USD 2.95 billion in 2014, and is projected to reach USD 3.83 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. The factors responsible for driving the growth of the industry are the increased consumption of processed food, the government support for the use of equipment in developing countries, the demand for food safety, safety of workers, the presence of small and medium enterprises in developing countries, rising raw material costs, and international trade rules.
The Pet Food Processing Equipment Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% in the next six years to reach a market of USD 4.27 billion by 2022. The growth of the pet food processing equipment market is attributed to the increase in the global demand for pet food supplies, especially in growing economies such as China, Brazil, Argentina, and India, owing to a growing urbanization that has stimulated a desire to keep pets and has resulted in the increasing usage of processed pet food products; and advancements in the manufacturing processes and technologies.
