U.S. bakery processing equipment market size, by equipment, 2016 - 2027 (USD Billion)

The U.S. is one of the prominent countries in North America where baked goods are a staple food in many households, and bakery products are a common part of the American meal. As per the American Bakers Association (ABA), the American bakery industry contributed to 2.1% of GDP in 2018, which is expected to increase with growing innovation in the equipment for faster processing.

The consumption of various processed food products, such as potato chips, sausages, and bread, is witnessing significant growth. Furthermore, rising demand for high-fiber, low-carb, and gluten-free products in markets such as China, India, the U.K., Germany, Italy, France, and the Middle East, on account of the expansion of retail food outlets and new product launches, is expected to increase the importance of packaged foods.

The packaged food industry has witnessed significant growth in the recent past on account of the changing eating habits of consumers. Factors such as long working hours, growing young working-age population, and convenient access to packed food in a broad range of cuisines have contributed to the changing lifestyle of consumers.

Several companies focus on strengthening their presence in the global market by ensuring the easy availability of packaged food products in both hypermarkets and retail stores. The rapid advancements in packaging and processing technologies in the food sector in the Americas and countries of the European Union are expected to intensify the market growth of packaged foods, thus fueling the demand for ready-to-eat food and beverages over the forecast period.

Equipment Insights

Oven and proofers led the market and accounted for 34.3% share of the global revenue in 2019. In the bakery industry, proofing is an essential step in the preparation of baked goods where the dough is allowed to rest so that it can rise for the final time before baking. The purpose of proofer is to provide consistent humidity and heat for which they need sufficient power to run for longer periods. There are two main types of proofer ovens, namely standard and convection.

Mixers are machines that blend, homogenize, emulsify, and otherwise mix materials into a single substance. Mixers play an important role in modern bakeries, assisting bakers in improving their production line, increasing efficiency, and quickly mixing raw materials to produce large quantities of pastries, bread, and other baked goods. The two most common types of commercial mixers are continuous and batch mixers.

The molders and sheeters equipment segment is likely to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.0% from 2020 to 2027 as these equipment are used to manufacture bakery products of various styles, sizes, and shapes. A bakery molder can mold the dough into a desired size and shape while a sheeter flattens the dough into thin crusts. They offer a higher degree of precision and take less time as compared to manual kneading.

Dividers and rounders aid in quick and easy cutting and shaping of the dough in the same step. As a result, these machines eliminate the labor and time required to make complex bakery items. The demand for dividers and rounders that offer easy sanitation, durability, gentle dough handling, flexibility, and weight accuracy is expected to increase significantly.

Application Insights

The bread application segment led the market and accounted for 35.1% share of the global revenue in 2019 as high levels of per capita bread consumption were recorded in countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany, Russia, and France. In addition, the rising popularity of convenience foods is expected to open new avenues for bread manufacturers in developing countries.

The cakes and pastries application segment is expected to be driven by rising disposable income, globalization, and the development of new types of cakes in the market, such as photo cakes and shape cakes. The rising demand for healthy cakes, along with market fragmentation and high growth in emerging countries, is driving merger and acquisition deals as companies are ready to pay high multiples for innovation.

Global bakery processing equipment market share, by application, 2019 (%)

The cookies and biscuits application segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2020 to 2027 as cookies and biscuits are preferred and consumed regularly by people of all age groups across the globe. In addition, the development of customizations such as low-sugar multigrain biscuits for health-conscious customers and fruit-flavored cookies for children is expected to fuel the segment growth.

The others application segment includes doughnuts, pretzels, and croissants. The segment growth is attributed to the changing lifestyle of the population in urban cities, the accelerating habit of munching, the rising popularity of low-calorie snacks, and the increasing number of baker franchisees and restaurants across the globe.
