The industry has been fueled by rising consumer interest in organic products, resulting from a revived emphasis on health and well-being. Consumers are adopting more fruits and vegetables into their regular diets in salads, juices, soups, and other foods as their health consciousness grows. As a result, there is a greater demand for fresh, exotic, and organic fruits and vegetables that are not wax coated.

As per the World Health Organization (WHO), a nutritious, balanced diet helps children against malnutrition and non-communicable diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and cancer. Breastfeeding promotes proper growth and cognitive development and may have long-term health benefits like lowering the chance of being overweight or obese and having NCDs later in life. Total fat should not exceed 30% of total caloric consumption to avoid harmful weight gain. A healthy diet reduces free sugars to less than 10% of total calories.

Further, the post-harvest treatment market is driving due to the rise in the trade of perishable items such as fruits and vegetables, which increases the usage of its treatment to extend the shelf - life during handling and distribution. This treatment is a technique for increasing certain fruits and vegetables' storage life and quality. It is interested in the application of biotechnology techniques and chlorine dioxide gas to preserve and enhance the quality of fruits and vegetables.

Also, the increasing consumer awareness of various post-harvest treatments would boost the forecast of the post-harvest treatment sector. These techniques are used to postpone senescence, prevent spoiling, and improve the aesthetic and marketability of fruits and vegetables. After harvest, post-harvest procedures aid in preserving, conserving, and improving agricultural commodities, preparing them for processing, packaging, storage, distribution, and sale.

These techniques will probably be in high demand in the future as food production speeds up to feed the world's ever-increasing population. However, the absence of competent organizations for these treatment systems and increasingly stringent governmental policy and regulation are restraining post-harvest treatment market growth. Increased government regulation of post-harvest treatment procedures is another element restraining industry growth.

The Post Harvest Treatment Market report details key market dynamics to help industry players align their business strategies with current and future trends. It examines technological advances and breakthroughs in the industry and their impact on the market presence. Furthermore, a detailed regional analysis of the industry at the local, national, and global levels has been provided.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
Major players' announcement of such technology to bring high-quality fruits and vegetables is inducing the market forward. The major players are launching various technology for after-harvesting treatment, supporting market growth. For instance, in April 2021, Pace International, a leading supplier of sustainable after harvesting services and solutions to the fresh produce market, has introduced BioSpectr 100SC for cherry decay control.

It has demonstrated very high effectiveness against a wide range of key fungal post-harvest seen within cherries. The production process of naturally occurring soil microorganisms produces this natamycin-based fungicide. BioSpectra 100SC, unlike the other conventional products, has a distinct mechanism of action that inhibits pathogen growth. Further, in July 2021, AgroFresh Solutions, Inc., a worldwide AgTech developer, announced the expansion of the accessibility of the Control-Tec sustainability information system across North America, South America, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand. The adaptable, computerized post-harvest technologies assist packinghouse operators in reducing water use and improving the efficiency of the preventive care process.

AgroFresh's entire Control-Tec combines Control-Tec Eco, Dosifier, and updated reporting software capabilities, all specially developed to improve environmental advantages and operating cost reductions for the cherry processing. In August 2021, SLINTEC developed a post-harvest treatment technique that scavenges the ethylene hormone responsible for fruit and vegetable ripening. This innovation allows for longer shelf life, allowing for longer storage and preventing rotting. Thus, the announcement of various post-harvest treatment technologies across various applications, such as fruits and vegetables, boosts market growth during the forecast period.

Insight by Type

Based on the type segment, the coatings segment is anticipated to be the largest revenue contributor in the global market in 2021. The coating is a technique used to extend the shelf life of items while reducing the amount and quality losses. The increasing demand for fruits and vegetables from developed countries necessitates using organic and bio-based coatings for fruit and vegetable harvesting. It is used throughout the packaging process to keep fruits and vegetables soft, color, odor, and flavor. Edible coatings assist market growth by preventing unwanted softening and ripening of fruits and vegetables.

Geographic Overview

Asia Pacific had the largest revenue share in 2021. Asian countries are the leading exporters to North America and Europe. Asia accounted for approximately half of total fruit and vegetable agriculture, with China and India leading the region. Moreover, advancements in post-harvest technologies and a decline in supply chain bottlenecks also supported the region’s growth.

Moreover, North America is expected to witness a high CAGR in the global market in 2021. The overall incidence of lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, cardiovascular issues, and heart disease can be linked to regional growth. For instance, as per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, around 34.2 million Americans will have diabetes in 2020. Thus, the rising prevalence of various lifestyle diseases is boosting the demand for a healthy diet and the demand for post-harvest treatment in the region.
