High cost of equipment hinders the growth of chocolate and confectionery processing equipment market to some extent
The activities covered in chocolate and confectionery equipment production are manufacturing, processing, generation, assembling, and mining. This has always been closely linked to developing the technology. The new chocolate and confectionery processing equipment have complex & sensitive electrical system, controls, and rapid automation. This has resulted into replacing old generation equipment with modern machines which has led to increasing maintenance, technical support, and power costs. Industrial chocolate and confectionery processing equipment manufacturers face many challenges during the supply of high-quality machinery, and they require high cost throughout the manufacturing process. The increase in production cost leads to the rise in the final price of equipment which makes it difficult for chocolate and confectionery processors, especially small and medium scale manufacturers, to afford the equipment, thereby limiting the demand of chocolate and confectionery processing equipment.
