The global Food Recycler market size was assessed at USD 33.63 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period. Rapid industrialization and rising R&D activities for developing efficient systems are expected to have a positive influence on growth. Rising use of organic waste for the assembly of animal feed and fertilizers, reducing greenhouse emissions, and growing energy requirements are the factors projected to drive demand for the Food Recycler systems. Increasing consumption of processed food, including ready-to-eat meals, is additionally likely to spice up the demand.
Top Driver: Government initiatives such as go green concept is expected to positively influence growth of the food recycler market
Growing urbanization, smart city projects in developing countries and government initiatives such as go green concept is expected to positively influence growth of the food recycler market across the globe. Moreover, increasing people concern for green environment, increasing awareness towards food recycling, and use of organic compost instead of fertilizers is expected to witness significant growth of the food recycler market during the forecast period.
Growing utilization of food recycler machines by the restaurants chains and food distributors to reduce the land fill and effectively utilize compost produced in agricultural activities is driving the global food recycler market. Stringent government regulations to reduce the landfill of food residue by food organizations is expected to boost the sales of food recyclers globally during forecast period. The food organizations and service providers are increasing investment towards new machinery to reduce the waste food disposing from their daily services. Also, shifting agricultural practices towards organic farming coupled with growing awareness among the communities towards food recyclers and usage of compost are driving the global food recycler market. However, minimal availability of recycling machinery and presence of population preferring to left over rather than recycling are major factors hindering the growth of Food recycler.
Municipalities and households sector Make Crucial Contribution to Growth of Global Food Recycler Market
Based on source Municipalities and households sector is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 5.6% in terms of revenue, from 2019 to 2028, owing to the rising wastage by consumers across the globe. The causes of waste by households include preparation of food in excess, improper management, lack of cooking skills, improper storage, and lack of awareness among consumers regarding the expiry date of the products. Food distributors and suppliers accounted for over 23.8% of the total revenue share in 2019, attributed to inappropriate means of transport and inadequate storage facilities used by the entities. In addition, the spoilage of meat owing to the changes in climatic conditions, improper handling, and unavailability of proper storage contributes majorly to the total waste. Foodservice providers segment is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period. Factors driving the segment are overstocking, expiration, spoilage, inefficient production, and overproduction that leads to a considerable amount of waste generated before offering it to consumers. These service providers include hotels, restaurants, street vendors, and cafes. The types of waste generated by primary producers include cereals, dairy products, fruits and vegetables, meat, and fish. These producers are involved in agricultural activities such as farming, animal husbandry, and fishing. Loss thanks to spillage, poor crop harvest, and animal death are the factors contributing to the generation of food wastage.
Based on Process Anaerobic digestion, composting, and landfill contributes to a significant share of the processes involved in the treatment of food waste. The anaerobic digestion segment led the Food Recycler market in 2019, accounting for over 45.3% of the global revenue share. It is a widely used process for the disposal of waste because the process aids in recovering energy like biogas and nutrients. The wastage of food treated using anaerobic digestion has a less number of pathogens and thus, restricts the spread of odor and diseases and promotes hygiene and sanitation. It is an effective alternative to fossil fuel and energy produced through anaerobic digestion is not dependent on weather change. The waste disposed of using this process includes municipal and industrial sewage, domestic and commercial garbage , and agricultural material and livestock manures. Aerobic digestion segment is estimated to reach USD 3.85billion by 2028 on account of its ability to decompose food waste such as cereals and fruits and vegetables aerobically to form compost. The compost obtained from this process is used as fertilizers on account of its composition, which includes potassium, phosphorous, and nitrogen, as well as the presence of soil conditioning micro-organisms. The combustion or incineration process involves the controlled combustion of mixed waste at extremely high temperatures, wherein the energy is recovered from the combustion process in the form of heat and electricity. Economies, including Japan, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden, treat over 90% of the residues through incineration or energy recovery to generate electricity and heat from the process.
Overproduction, lack of cold-chain infrastructure, market fluctuations, and varying customer demand In North America Market
North America is estimated to reach USD 13.85 billion by 2028, on account of overproduction, lack of cold-chain infrastructure, market fluctuations, and varying customer demand. The U.S. is projected to account for a major regional market share owing to the booming food industry in the country.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth on account of rising exports of various products from Asian countries to the North American and European countries which are further expected to increase the amount of wastage during transit. The food waste in the region is majorly decomposed and is converted into biogas, which is also used in electricity generation.
The forward-looking economies in Middle East and Africa, such as Qatar, contribute majorly to the global food wastage on account of the unavailability of an adequate number of cold storages and warehouses and the lack of transportation facilities. However, the regional governments are focusing on the proper management of such wastage. For case, Dubai has taken the initiative for achieving zero waste and has launched the UAE Food Bank.
