Increasing Food Safety Concerns Impeded Market Growth

This market was negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to increased food safety concerns. The sudden spike in COVID-19 infections hampered the equipment’s demand. Furthermore, companies invest significantly in the sanitization of machinery, thereby increasing resource consumption. Furthermore, governments impose regulations to promote hygienic practices. According to HACCP’s recent studies, the COVID-19 virus remains on surfaces for approximately 72 hours, resulting in contamination. This factor enhanced sanitization expenses. These factors negatively affected the food processing and handling equipment industry’s progress.
