The growth of the food automation market is mainly attributed to factors such as the growing adoption of digitalization across the F&B industry, increasing food safety regulations, and the adoption of automated systems in packaging & logistic operations. However, the significant initial investment required is expected to hamper the market growth to some extent. The market is seeking growth opportunities from the adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies across the food industry and high demand for robots & sensor-based systems. On the other hand, lack of skilled workforce and training is the major challenge faced by the market.

To provide efficient analysis, Meticulous Research® has segmented the overall food automation market based on component (plant instrumentation (sensors, motors & drivers, relays & switches, machine vision, robots, and others], plant-level controls [PLC, SCADA, DCS, Others], enterprise-level controls [PLM, ERP, MES]), mode of operation (semi-automatic, fully-automatic), application (packaging & repacking, palletizing & de-palletizing, grading & sorting, pick & place, butchery, and others), end-use (beverages & distilleries, dairy processing, bakery & confectionery, meat, poultry & seafood products, fruits & vegetables, oil & fats, and others ), and geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

On the basis of component, the food automation market is segmented into plant instrumentation, plant-level controls, and enterprise-level controls. In 2020, the enterprise-level controls segment is expected to command the largest share of the overall food automation market. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to the need for efficient management and productivity offered through software solutions, such as ERP, MES, and PLM. Key players emphasize developing ERP and MES applications specific to the food & beverage industry to help maintain the food quality & safety and enhance the process efficiency of the manufacturing plants.

By application, the food automation market comprises packaging & repacking, palletizing & depalletizing, grading & sorting, pick & place, butchery, and other applications. Automation tools and solutions are witnessing increasing demand from butchery applications. Automation offers increased safety and efficiency for meat cutting. Even the rudimentary cutting machines improve safety and efficiency compared to hand-cutting, thereby increasing the market demand.

While geographically, Asia-Pacific commanded the largest share of the global food automation market, followed by Europe and North America. The Middle East & Africa and South America are also witnessing considerable market growth. The major share of Asia-Pacific region in this market is mainly attributed to the presence of key players in the region and the need for maintaining food quality. Furthermore, a growing focus on adopting digitalization and increasing demand for processed food is further driving the market growth in the region. Moreover, the stringent compliance requirements to maintain the food quality is driving the growth in North America and Europe.
