The snack pellet equipment market, in terms of value, is estimated to account for nearly USD 1.0 billion in 2019 and projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2%, to reach nearly USD 1.4 billion by 2025. This is due to the rising demand for extruded snacks globally. Snack pellets are non-expanded intermediate products that are usually produced through the extrusion process using various raw materials such as potato, corn, tapioca, and rice. The extruder is the main equipment, which is used to press the raw material and produce pellets. The key snack pellet manufacturers are also adopting new technologies for the production of snack pellets, which include single screw extrusion, twin-screw extrusion, and co-extrusion. These processes aid in the manufacturing of snack pellets that are of various shapes, textures, and sizes. However, the technological advancements in the snack pellet equipment to produce 3D pellets have also led to an increase in the production capacity in a short time, thus driving the market growth.
