The food packaging equipment segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

This segment comprises food packaging equipment types, which are highly used in the food packaging industry. The increasing demand of consumers for attractive packaging, especially in premium products, is increasing the demand for this equipment type. COVID-19 is expected to have a favorable overall impact on the packaging sector. People in developing countries, who had formerly favored loose unpackaged food from local sellers, are increasingly converting to bagged food, owing to safety and hygiene concerns. As a result, many small and medium-sized businesses are paying more attention to packaging.

The bakery & confectionery segment is projected to account for the largest share in the food processing and handling equipment market during the forecast period.

The bakery & confectionery application segment dominated the food processing & handling equipment market in terms of application. This is due to the low shelf life of bread and bakery items and rising consumer demand for product freshness, which is increasing the demand for bread and bakery products produced locally. This factor, in turn, is propelling the market for bread-producing equipment. Core equipment, such as coating systems, for confectionery processing has a considerable scope in the confectionery market as the demand for coated candies and confectionery products forms an integral part of the confectionery industry.
