Technavio’s latest market research report on the global potato peeler and slicer equipment market shows that the demand in well-established markets in driven by the necessity to replace the old machines with new energy-efficient ones.
The report analyzes the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021.
Manu Gupta, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on food sector says: “The demand for potato peeler and slicer equipment in many well-established markets is mainly driven by the need for replacements. Hence, most of the demand is to substitute old potato peeler and slicer equipment with new energy-efficient ones. Many manufacturers are focusing on developing energy-efficient products with improved features.”
The top three emerging market trends driving the global potato peeler and slicer market, according to Technavio food and beverage research analysts, are:
• Increasing focus on energy-efficient equipment
• Growing preference for automated potato peeler and slicer equipment
• Technological advancements
Increasing Focus on Energy-efficient Equipment
The vendors and end-users are working toward reducing their carbon footprints. To meet this goal, vendors have introduced eco-friendly potato peeler and slicer equipment, and have also introduced systems that optimize the efficiency of the production cycle. This will encourage the adoption of new equipment and drive upgrades and vendors are focusing on obtaining ENERGY STAR certification for their products.
Manufacturers like Sammic are providing components such as energy-efficient and electrically commutated motors that are used to stay within energy standards without forgoing the capability. The company provides stainless steel commercial potato peelers equipped with an auxiliary contact for external electric valve. They are energy-efficient owing to engine optimization.
The market is witnessing an increasing demand for automated appliances, owing to their advantages such as lesser risk, efficiency, and quick return on investments. These factors also help many end-users to compete against their counterparts in this space. Many units of automated potato peelers and slicers come with improved features such as laser sorters and automatic defect removal (ADR) systems.
“Automated appliances help derive savings in terms of labor costs, energy, and material costs. They also help to improve the quality, accuracy, and precision of the end-product,” says Manu.
