Post-Harvest Treatment Market

Post harvest Treatment Industry - Forthcoming Trends to Fuel the Global Growth

The global post-harvest treatment market was valued at USD 2.01 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 3.12 billion by 2028, with a CAGR of 7.6% during the study period. Post-harvest losses of fruits and vegetables are estimated between 30 and 40%, resulting in significant food and financial waste. Post-harvest treatments play a crucial role in reducing these losses by extending the shelf life of produce and mitigating rot and deterioration. They offer economic benefits such as decreased food waste, increased profits, and enhanced market access. Additionally, they create opportunities for exporting exotic fruits like avocados, dragon fruits, and jackfruit, further driving market growth and sustainability.

The post-harvest treatment industry is undergoing rapid evolution, driven by emerging trends and global forecasts.

Emerging trends in the global post-harvest treatment industry are:

  • Increased focus on organic post-harvest treatments to meet consumer demand for natural products.
  • Integration of IoT and AI technologies for real-time monitoring and management of post-harvest processes.
  • Expansion of cold chain infrastructure to maintain product freshness and quality during transportation and storage.
  • Rising adoption of biological control agents and bio-based solutions for pest and disease management.
  • Implementation of blockchain technology for traceability and transparency in post-harvest supply chains.
  • Growing use of precision agriculture techniques to optimize post-harvest operations and minimize losses.
