Executive Summary

•Greater consumer awareness of the health and safety aspects of food products is likely to encourage market participants to give priority to the use of hygienic valves. Food companies’ requirement for better energy optimization will fuel the demand for energy-efficient valves. These factors are expected to boost uptake of industrial valves in the Chinese food and beverage industry.
•Dairy is one of the fastest-growing segments in China as the country has a dairy-rich diet. The demand for fortified dairy products is growing as the preference of manufacturers for high-value products is expected to spur investment in industrial valves.
•Replacements and retrofits will continue to spur growth across end-user verticals.
•Highly populated and developed regions, such as province Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Henan, and Fujian, were observed to show a high concentration of value manufacturers.
•The market for industrial valves in the Chinese food and beverage (F&B) industry is growing. It is anticipated to see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of x % between 2013 and 2020.

Chinese Government Initiatives

Grain processing
The government controls and restricts bio-chemical and other non-food corn.
Health conscious consumers are willing to pay a premium for safe and trustable produce, thereby, encouraging organic farming.

Food ingredients
The 12th five-year plan offers scope for increasing intra-industrial consolidation and encourages not only the production of natural food ingredients but also R&D efforts to improve high-end food ingredient production technology.
Acquisition of diverse areas by large organizations that enter the market can standardize quality requirements.

Meat processing
The government encourages consolidation within the sector to increase the management and production efficiency.
Modern upgrades to production facilities will improve utilization rate. Pork processing facilities that utilize 42% of production capacity have been shut down.

Dairy products
The Chinese government encourages M&A in the dairy production industry. In addition, it supports projects (especially, in North East China and Inner Mongolia) that aim to meet global standards but discourages projects within large cities.
The domestic industry will compete with international participants as government-supported projects will implement international standards for production.

Alcohol industry
The government supports M&A but limits the annual production capacity growth to 5%. Growth will mainly come from grapes and fruits, not grains.
As consumption patterns change from grain-based alcohol to other low alcohol content beverages, opportunities for beer, wine and other products increase.

Others
The government also offers guidance for 5 sub-industries: instant food, fermentation, wine, food additives and ingredients, and nutrition and health food.
With increased government measures across the F&B industry, the importance of safety procedures and industry equipment continues to increase.

Market Landscape of Food and Beverage Industry in China

•The onset of recession brought about changes in consumer spending patterns that have led to reduced spending in restaurants, and, consequently, high demand for ready-to-eat processed food. Owing to consumers' increasing preference for convenience foods, the processed food segment could experience the highest growth rate.
•The rise of private labels, which are typically less expensive and offer better margins to retailers, has added to the demand for processed food, which includes meat products, frozen foods, and other ready-to-eat products.
•The food and beverage industry is witnessing a change in consumer preference across regions due to rising health consciousness and increasing public and governmental concern about obesity and lifestyle-related health risks. Inevitably, unhealthy food habits from high-calorie soft drinks and fat-intense foods have been on the decrease; as a result, healthier foods and beverages that are high in vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients are growing in popularity.
