Growing food processing in meat, bakery, snacks, and breakfast cereal

Meat, snacks, bakery products, and breakfast cereal are some of the major applications of food coating ingredients and equipment. The fast changing and busy lifestyles of consumers due to rapid urbanization have also led to a high demand for ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook meat, confectionery products, and bakery food products as they are processed food products that require less time and effort to cook, while also ensuring nutrition and durability. Furthermore, rising inclination of consumers toward protein-based food products, popularity of frozen food, and the growing frequency of snacking are driving the demand for these products in the market, leading to the growth in demand for ingredients such as spices, fats and oils, cocoa, flours, and sugar and syrups. As a result, the demand of equipment such as coaters, applicators, and enrobers is also expected to rise.

Rising costs of production due to fluctuating ingredient prices

Rising prices of ingredients and their subsequent fluctuations have emerged as key restraints in food coating. The high cost of ingredients has led to high production cost, which further hinders the chances of adoption of new coating technologies by the manufacturer due to the resultant lower margins and longer time taken to attain breakeven point for food manufacturers. The food coating equipment must thus offer cost effectiveness in terms of output and ingredient usage to make up for the rising ingredient prices and make it easier for food manufacturers to achieve economies of scale. For instance, the prices of cocoa beans and sugar, which are the major ingredients used in coating confectionery, chocolates, and snacks increased continuously between 2013 and 2016, leading to high cost of the end product, which, in turn, leads manufacturers to focus on cutting cost, rather than investments on new technologies or equipment in their manufacturing facilities.

Growing investment opportunities in the development of new food coating technology

There has been a growing awareness among consumers for various food trends due to globalization. Food manufacturing companies have also been expanding their presence across the globe due to the liberalization of trade. New and untapped markets are being explored by food manufacturers, wherein even domestic players are developing their product offerings to meet the rising competition in the market. For instance, manufacturers in China, India, and Japan have developed their own food coating equipment that are as good as the imported equipment or the equipment supplied by the market leaders in coating technology. To get an edge over competitors in both domestic and international markets, companies are focusing on innovating their food coating technology offerings through innovative technologies, such as electrostatic coating, which offers 98% coating of all products, making it an even more efficient coating than traditional flavorings methods.

To cater to the changing demand from food manufacturers, food coating equipment manufacturers are also focusing on the R&D of various technologies used in equipment. The key features required by food manufacturers include better and large-scale handling of food products, increasing the shelf life of products, improved production capacity, and reducing the wastage of ingredients.

Speak to Analyst:

North America is estimated to dominate the food coating ingredient market in 2018.

North America is expected to continue its dominant presence in the food coating ingredients market during the forecast period. The region is backed by superior food coating technologies and utilizes automatic equipment for coating food ingredients. Consumers in the US and Canada majorly consume salty snacks such as potato chips, which need dry coating. Apart from this, these countries consume frozen food that requires coating for an extended shelf life. Consumers in this region opt for cereal as breakfast options where coating is applied. The US is also a huge market for confectionery products. These factors have fueled the growth of the food coating market in North America.
