The US represents almost a quarter of food safety product demand, though developing countries are showing the fastest growth.

Food Processing: The global market for machinery and equipment used in food processing is being shaped by technological innovation and regulations regarding food hygiene.

The US, France, Germany and Switzerland are among the biggest exporters of food processing machinery while the US, the UK, France and Germany are among the heaviest importers.
