The post-harvest treatment market size is projected to grow from USD 1506.6 million in 2021 to USD 2325.7 million by 2027, recording a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5%, in terms of value, during the forecast period.
Fruits and vegetables are two of the major food commodities consumed across the globe. Also, they are perishable in nature, and thus, are considered more susceptible to post-harvest losses. Various factors, such as physical, physiological, and mechanical conditions, along with hygiene, cause the post-harvest losses of fruits and vegetables. These horticultural crops are known to have a high metabolic rate, which results in shorter shelf life as compared to other crops. As a result, a certain amount of losses occur between the harvest and consumption of these crops.

Fruits and vegetables are susceptible to abiotic and biotic stresses, leading to substantial losses during the post-harvest period due to microbes, insects, loss of moisture, and respiration. On the other hand, external factors such as exposure to oxygen and carbon dioxide and an increase in ethylene levels also lead to losses of fruits and vegetables Post-harvest practices help in the removal of undesirable elements and improve the appearance of fruits and vegetables as well as increase their shelf life, thereby maintaining the quality of the crops.
