The industry has also witnessed an increase in the demand for food products that can be stored without spoiling, which has led to a growth in the use of aseptic packaging and forming machinery. Tray forming, bottle capping, and form-fill-seal machines are just a few of the industries that have experienced rapid expansion. 

The market is being driven ahead by a number of input variables, including the expanding hotel sector, shifting eating habits, and rising takeaway demand. In addition, the need for ecologically friendly and sustainable utensils, as well as stringent regulations controlling end-user safety and growing digitalization, are anticipated to soon provide the food service equipment market with attractive potential possibilities.

Consumer adoption of energy-efficient appliances is made easier by rising consumer awareness of energy use and environmentally friendly activities, which benefits this industry. Global standards for energy usage place a strong emphasis on lowering Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in order to lessen the growing effects of climate change. End users increasingly favour appliances with the ENERGY STAR label, which denotes the equipment's high energy efficiency and lowers operating and maintenance expenses in cafés, restaurants, and institutional kitchens. 

According to data released in 2018 by the Energy Star programme of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), end-user operators may save $5,300, or around 340 MMBTU, annually by using food service equipment marked with the ENERGY STAR designation. Due to the incorporation of technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) in food service equipment to create smart equipment that can reduce labour and food waste and optimise kitchen storage, the food service equipment industry is anticipated to experience robust growth during the forecast period. 

Additionally, it is predicted that widespread IoT applications in fryers that can replace their own oil and ventilation systems that monitor fire dangers would support market expansion. Furthermore, it is projected that the market would see development due to the adoption of the newest technology in refrigerators and ovens. 

The market is also expected to benefit from the emerging technology improvements that are predicted to be integrated with different kitchen appliances, such as dishwashers. Therefore, it is projected that the use of technology in food service equipment would propel industry expansion in the years to come.
