A Comprehensive Study On France Material Handling Market
France Material Handling market is projected to grow at decent CAGR during the forecast period to reach a multi-billion market share in 2024. Per OECD data, France’s productivity level is well above that of the U.S. The new president Emmanuel Macron has provided new government plans to address the critical labor reform followed by vocational training and pensions to provide a better balance between security and flexibility.
This educational reform will help various industry verticals which incorporate material handling products throughout the supply chain to get the skilled workforce, thereby positively impacting the growth of the material handling market in the country.
Growing French Food And Beverage Industry
Increasing purchasing power and living standards is augmenting the demand for ready-to-eat and ready-to-make snacks and beverages in France. More women in the country working for long hours and growing single-person households in the country is driving the demand for chilled ready meals and prepared salads. Trends like gluten and lactose-free and organic products are also developing in the country owing to growing awareness regarding good health and fitness. Per a recent French survey conducted by ANIA, France’s food industry association, 79% of French consumers are willing to pay more for a higher quality product with increased demand for freshly packed organic food products.
All these factors along with stringent regulations regarding maintenance of hygiene throughout the supply chain of food and beverage products are spurring the demand for efficient material handling equipment in the food and beverage sector significantly. This demand will further be boosted by the launch of new and innovative food and drink products in the country. For instance, MBWS (Marie Brizard Wine and Spirits), a French wine and spirits group, launched a range of frozen cocktails in the country in May 2017. The pouches are frozen for eight hours before get ready to be consumed by squeezing the content into a glass.
