The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) today announced the release of its Trend Study program for 2018 to include five-year global forecasts for the following sectors:

  • Food Packaging Technology and Equipment
  • Food Automation Market
  • Food & Beverage Processing Equipment Market
  • Prepared Foods Processing Market
  • Confectionery Processing Market
  • Fruit & Vegetables Processing Market

These studies will be released each month, beginning with the Packaging Technology study in June, and are free of charge for all FPSA member companies. Non-members can purchase these studies at a cost of $1,800 per study.

“The Trend Study program is a tremendous resource as it helps members to gauge market size and growth projections in the segments in which they operate,” said Jarrod McCarroll, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Weber, Inc. “In addition, these studies serve as a guidepost for members by highlighting market opportunities, be they based on technology or on geography. Anyone involved in sales and marketing strategy will greatly benefit in receiving and reviewing these studies. They are a tremendous member benefit.”

“This is our fifth year producing trend studies and our members have found tremendous value in them,” said David Seckman, President and CEO of FPSA. “For this reason, our Board authorized an expansion of the program this year to cover six new topics of interest. The projections in these studies help our members keep up to date on market trends and ultimately to be more successful in their business.”

These six studies will join the collection of studies conducted in previous years for processed meats, poultry, seafood, dairy products, bakery, beverages, pet foods and prepared foods.
