The global food extrusion market is projected to expand at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% during the forecast period of 2021-2030.

Food extrusion is a modern, energy-efficient food processing technology. It involves melting, plasticizing, heat transfer, mass transfer, shear, shaping, and pressure changes for puffing, mixing, cooking, texturizing, conveying, and kneading. It is used in the modern food industry to reduce food waste & loss and to make snacks, pet foods, pasta, and ready-to-eat cereals. The process inactivates enzymes, reduces microbial contamination, and enhances the digestibility of various plant components such as starch and proteins, providing improved quality and digestibility of the food products.

Extrusion aids in transforming under-utilized biomass into food and in formulating healthy grain products. It also helps lend colors, textures, and multiple shapes to different food products that are otherwise not easily attainable using other production methods. It enables the preparation of new consumer snacks and food products.

Growth Drivers:

Factors primarily driving the growth of this market include: the proliferating adoption of healthy snacking habits; the burgeoning consumer preference for convenience foods due to easier access to products and availability in a wide variety of options; the escalating developments in the field of processed food products coupled with innovations in the food extrusion technology; and the surging overweight and obese population leading to an enhanced demand for food products that overlook weight management.

Additionally, the emphasis on the building of solid immunity among people is rising all over the globe. This is leading to an increased demand for healthier food products, which can be addressed through food extrusion as it is involved in the production of highly nutritious food for people. Thus, the soaring demand for immunity building and the adoption of healthier products is expected to bode well for the growth of the global food extrusion market during the forecast period.

Moreover, the changing preferences for food among the urban population in developing countries due to changing lifestyles and increasing disposable incomes is bolstering the growth of the food extrusion market. The demand for ready-to-eat and processed food products is surging as they help save colossal amounts of time and effort. Alongside, the rising trend of snacking between meals and the increasing shift from traditional homemade breakfasts to ready-to-eat products is also augmenting the demand for extruded product types, which is raising the demand for food extrusion equipment and thereby the overall food extrusion market.

Furthermore, other factors such as the ever-increasing global population; the growing demand for different types of food products; the enhancing food distribution channel; the soaring expenditure levels on R&D activities; and the rapidly changing trends in the food industry are expected to further create ample growth opportunities for the global food extrusion market during the forecast period.

However, factors such as fluctuations in the prices of raw materials coupled with unstable climatic conditions adversely affecting the raw material production, and the stringent regulations imposed by the government are anticipated to restrict the growth of the global food extrusion market to some extent during the forecast period.
