"Catapult Your Business to Fore, Gain Competitive Advantage "
The global egg processing machine market size was valued at USD 792 million in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 817 million in 2023 to USD 1,060.7 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period.
Eggs are considered to be one of the most nutritious foods on the planet, they contain all 9 essential amino acids, 13 essential vitamins, minerals, and high-quality protein. As a result, they are used widely all around the world.
Egg processing includes washing, sanitizing, breaking, separating, filtering, stabilizing, blending, pasteurizing, cooling, freezing or drying, and then finally packaging. The machines which are used to carry out all these processes are called egg processing machines.
The demand for these machines is increasing as they help in reducing operational costs by replacing manual labor. In addition, changing the food habits of people along with increased consumption of processed foods is accelerating the egg processing machine market growth.
Unprecedented Plunge in Demand for Machinery Hampered The Market Growth
The COVID-19 pandemic gravely affected various economic sectors including poultry and its processing. Prominent economies such as U.S., China, and other European nations are considered the major contributors to the market. However, the global pandemic severely impacted these nations impeding the sales of egg processing machines in the market. The prominent players in the market saw a fall in the demand during this period owing to the economic uncertainty of the end-user industries as well as idle egg processing plants in 2020. For instance, according to the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association, 49% of machinery companies that were surveyed in March 2020 reported a massive drop in demand which further increased to 77% by mid-April.

Recent Trend of Substituting Shell Eggs With Powdered Eggs To Bolster Market Growth
These days dehydrated or powdered eggs are widely preferred over fresh shell eggs. All the major functional properties of shell eggs such as gelling ability, emulsification, stability, and foaming and are found in powdered eggs. Moreover, these processed eggs have anti-bacterial properties as they are pasteurized before dehydrating which results in the elimination of a harmful bacteria called salmonella. Therefore, powdered eggs are used for making bakery products, confectioneries, and many different food products.
Another benefit of dried egg products is their long shelf life. If manufactured and stored correctly powdered eggs can last for up to 2 years as opposed to fresh eggs which last for a few days. In addition, they do not require refrigeration and are easier to transport making them an ideal alternative to fresh eggs.
Thus, owing to the several advantages of powdered eggs their demand is increasing which is further helping the egg processing machinery market grow.
Increasing Need for Automation to Drive the Market Growth
Automation has become vital in almost every sector today. It allows processes to function with increased productivity and efficiency. The rapid advancements in robotics have helped machines to outperform manual labor in a wide range of activities including egg processing.
Egg processing machines also help in avoiding human contact with eggs while they are been processed thus, reducing the risk of contamination. The ability of these machines to replace large manual workforce helps companies to reduce their operational cost.
Thus the benefit that automation brings with help of egg processing machines has helped the market grow.
Growing Transition Towards Vegan Lifestyle to Hamper the Market Growth
Veganism is becoming increasingly popular worldwide with more and more people accepting plant-based based lifestyle. For instance, according to Google, google searches for “vegan food near me” saw more than a 5000% increase in 2021. Gen Z and millennials are leading this transition due to rising awareness among them about animal cruelty which has ensured that this trend is here to stay for long term. This has led to a decrease in expected sales of egg-related products, which has further negatively impacted the egg processing machinery market.
In addition, the high initial investment to set up an egg processing plant has also limited the usage of these machines. Furthermore, in developing nations such as Mexico due to the availability of cheap labor the adoption of egg processing machines has been limited.
Egg Breaker and Separator to Hold Largest Market Share Due To Their Wide Usage
Based on type, the market is segmented into palletizer/depalletizer, egg breaker and separator, pasteurizers, homogenizers, and others (loader, washer, dryers, etc.).
According to Fortune Business Insights, the egg breaker and separator segment will hold the largest part in the segment and will grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period as these machines are the primary requirement of any egg processing plant. Therefore, they have a greater demand than any other type.
After egg breaker and separator, palletizer/depalletizer, and pasteurizers hold the second and third highest market share respectively owing to their high cost and increased demand.
Homogenizers also hold a considerable market share and a decent CAGR over the forecast period as their demand is increasing especially to process whole egg products such as liquid whole eggs.
Apart from these other machines such as washers, loaders, dryers, etc. also have a noteworthy market share as they are high in number. Spray dryers are crucial to manufacturing powdered eggs thus, they are the major contributor within this segment.

Liquid Segment To Grow Significantly Owing To Their Rising Consumption
Based on product type, the market is categorized into liquid, frozen, and dried. Among these, the liquid segment holds the highest market share and CAGR over the forecast period majorly because of its higher shelf life as compared to fresh eggs. Processed liquid eggs are used in various applications including bakery, confectionery, etc. thus increasing their sales further. In addition, using liquid eggs also has several other advantages; they are more convenient to use and reduce wastage.
The dried egg segment holds the second highest market share after liquid eggs due to their longer shelf life, cheaper cost, little to no bacteria contamination, and abundant nutrition.
The frozen segment also holds a considerable market share with a decent CAGR over the forecast period because of the increasing preference of consumers towards nonperishable processed egg products such as frozen eggs rather than fresh shell eggs.
Bakery to Hold Highest Market Share Due to Large Utilization of Eggs
Based on application type, the market is categorized into bakery, confectionery, ready to eat, and others (pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, etc.). Among these, the bakery segment holds the largest share and will also showcase the highest CAGR for the forecast period since liquid and frozen eggs are preferred in large-scale bakeries where manually cracking and breaking of eggs is not economical.
Apart from the bakery segment, the confectionery segment also holds considerable market share since the processed liquid yolk is a ready-to-use solution for manufacturing different confectionery products.
Furthermore, processed eggs are largely used to make ready to eat food products such as sauces, mayonnaise, dressings, etc. thus increasing the market share of ready to eat segment. Processed eggs are also used in other applications such as pharmaceutical , cosmetics, and inmanufacturing of nutritional supplements.
