Bakery Processing Industry segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the market in 2021

The bakery processing equipment market in the Asia Pacific is projected to witness the highest growth between 2021 and 2026. The industrial growth in the region over the years, followed by improvements in the bakery industry, has created new opportunities for the bakery processing equipment market. The growing middle-class population in the region, increasing disposable income among customers, and demand for bakery items that offer on-the-go consumption are driving the growth of the bakery processing equipment market. The per capita consumption of bakery processing equipment in the Asia Pacific region is increasing due to emerging economies such as China, India, and Indonesia.

A large number of bakery companies have expanded their manufacturing facilities in these countries, which has also driven the market for bakery processing equipment. For instance, in February 2019, The Haas Group (Austria), which was acquired by Buhler, expanded in India by adding an oven manufacturing plant to its service and support facility in the country. In addition, in November 2016, Reading Bakery Systems (Markel Food Group) continued its expansion across the Chinese and South-East Asian markets due to the increasing demand for bakery products from the customers in the region, along with providing a platform for developing baked snack systems.
