Food Processing Machinery: United States

This report forecasts to 2023 US food processing machinery demand and shipments in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: industrial baking machinery; meat, poultry, and seafood machinery; beverage production machinery; dairy and milk machinery; chocolate and confectionery machinery; fruit, nut, and vegetable machinery; other food processing machinery such as drying, mixing, and oil extraction equipment; and parts and attachments.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2008 to 2018; shipments and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

Excluded from the scope of this report are: machinery designed for and used primarily in nonmanufacturing settings (e.g., farms, food service operations, grocery stores, and other settings where the capabilities of industrial-grade equipment are warranted) such as milking machines, restaurant cooking and heating equipment, and retail bakery ovens and bread slicers; non-industrial food processing machinery used in food and beverage manufacturing facilities (e.g., residential or commercial-type microwave ovens installed in employee lunchrooms); refrigeration equipment designed for food storage applications (as opposed to processing line chillers and freezers); packaging and associated line machinery (e.g., bottling and filling equipment, case loading machines, conveyors, and labeling and coding equipment); used food processing machinery; related services such as equipment rebuilding; and retrofitting systems integration.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
