Food and Beverage Disinfection Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Food and Beverage Disinfection Market by Application – Surface, Packaging, Processing Equipment for 2020-2030


Over the years, prevalence of food borne diseases due to the presence of pathogens, radioactive substances and inorganic chemicals has aroused concern within the food & beverage industry. As per the World Health Organization, 10% of the global population contract food-borne illnesses due to the consumption of contaminated foodstuffs.

The incidence is especially high across the developing and underdeveloped regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America. Consequently, governments across these regions are augmenting efforts to enforce proper food testing and disinfection, thus providing massive traction to the market. FMI expects the market to surpass an impressive valuation by 2030.

Chlorine Compounds Remain Preferred by Type

Amongst all the disinfectant types, chlorine chemical compounds are expected to acquire substantial ground across the 2020-2030 forecast period. Chlorine dioxide and other compounds are highly instrumental in ensuring basic sanitation during the food processing stages. Chlorine compounds are also very environmentally friendly, thus gaining approval from regulatory authorities.

Chlorine is a versatile alternative that can be used across multiple sanitation applications such as pasteurization equipment, heat exchangers and potable water treatment. Adjusting for COVID-19, this segment is projected to witness credible growth in the latter half of the proposed forecast period. Likewise, ozone oxidation shall acquire substantial ground.

Food Processing Equipment a Potential Cash Cow

Food processing is an important stage in the food production and distribution cycle. It involves several approaches, ranging from grinding and home cooking to complex industrial methods. Consequently, companies are investing a major proportion of their revenue in purchasing advanced food processing equipment.

It is natural to expect this equipment to be laden with contaminants, given the high volume of processing which happens throughout the course of the day. Therefore, disinfecting them with appropriate substances and chemicals takes precedence, thus providing momentum to the segment’s growth.

Asia-Pacific Fastest Growing Food Disinfection Market

Regionally, Asia-Pacific is slated to experience a northward shift with respect to food & beverage disinfection market growth. India and China are likely to pivot this expansion, attributed to the concentration of a large population base and the subsequent increase in demand for clean label foodstuffs.

Simultaneously, non-traditional markets such as the Middle East & Africa and Latin America are also emerging as potential growth hotspots. Exponentially high prevalence of food-induced diseases is a key catalyst for the proliferation of lucrative opportunities.
