Global Smart Food Logistics Market Size is Estimated to Reach USD 31 billion by 2031, Growing at a CAGR of 13.42%: Straits Research

European smart food logistics industry share is poised for a 13.73% CAGR growth, driven by widespread tech adoption. The region’s influential tech hub sees firms embracing mobility tech for cost and compliance reasons. Rapid adoption of IoT, AI, and cloud services boosts smart logistics in local food businesses. The EU approves 11 5G research projects, targeting manufacturing, supply chains, transportation, and hardware innovation.

New York, United States, Jan. 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Smart food logistics suppliers help FMCG companies maintain the quality of foods like fruits and vegetables to stop food from going bad. Smart food logistics companies use wireless temperature sensors to provide multi-zone monitoring and maintain frozen goods in refrigerated vehicles and trailers. Cloud-based collaborative solutions are utilized throughout the whole supply chain by smart food logistics organizations. These solutions offer tight integration of information from the end user, the warehouse, and transportation throughout the supply chain. Smart food logistics use is projected to increase as it provides real-time information about the whereabouts of assets and fleets and temperature conditions.

Increasing Need for Efficient Monitoring and Tracking for Better Control of Assets Drives the Global Market

According to Straits Research, “The global smart food logistics market revenue was valued at USD 9.98 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 31.00 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 13.42% during the forecast period (2023-2031).” Related food firms have been increasingly vulnerable to price rises as food is classified as a fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry with a relatively low added value. Due to the pressure of rising costs from maintaining logistical capacities, with cold chain capabilities, or using several intermediaries when transporting food goods, there has been a shift toward efficiency in all areas. Aside from that, new logistical infrastructure forces food producers to pay more to bring their products to market. As a result, many food producers seek partnerships with logistics firms to use cutting-edge technologies. As consumer environmental concerns increased, a profitable strategy that reduced carbon footprints was needed. Maintaining the cold chain throughout the delivery process was a significant obstacle for many producers of perishable goods, artisanal food producers, and farmers with minimal or no logistical capacities.

Cold Chain Monitoring Creates Tremendous Opportunities 

Rapidly changing eating habits, rising packaged food demand, and stringent storage and packing restrictions have resulted in a power shift from manufacturers to retailers. The procedures concentrating on zero contamination, precise storage, and high-speed storage and retrieval activities are the key reasons affecting automation and the adoption of the technologies in the food and beverage logistics business. Food manufacturers effectively manage the distribution, shipment, and storage of products that need to be kept in a temperature-controlled environment with the help of a cold chain monitoring solution. Perishable goods may expire and become unsafe due to inadequate cooling chains caused by mechanical problems, traffic congestion, and other problems. Additionally, a lack of real-time visibility into the whereabouts of the commodities may lead to poor operational processes. Therefore, cold chain monitoring ensures that goods are moved and kept at constant temperatures.

Regional Analysis 

North America’s smart food logistics industry share is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.83% during the forecast period. The region should account for a sizable percentage of the market for smart logistics because it is home to several well-known providers. The government’s push for using technology to reduce resource waste in the supply chain and the rising concern over waste removal and resource optimization are also propelling the market’s growth in this area. For instance, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), state and local departments of transportation, and the Federal Highway Association (FHWA) have all advocated for the use of asset monitoring in the transportation and logistics industry (DOTs). Businesses in the Canadian market use a variety of organic and inorganic expansion strategies to retain their competitiveness. To provide businesses with real-time tracking of shipments and assets both inside and outside the workplace, Roambee, a logistics solutions provider, and Rogers for Business have teamed up.

Europe is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.73% during the forecast period. Europe is a significant consumer of modern technology and one of the most important centers for it worldwide. Due to cost and compliance concerns, many businesses in the area have embraced various mobility solutions. Europe has profited from the quick adoption of innovative technology in almost all end-user industries. Technological advancements like IoT, AI, and cloud services accelerate the adoption of smart logistics solutions in the local food industry. As the food industry grows across the continent, there is an increasing need for highly efficient and sophisticated logistics solutions to guarantee that the vast volumes entering Europe’s distribution routes are delivered quickly and reliably to a market of more discerning customers. The company’s innovative logistics solutions could increase productivity and reduce carbon emissions. By 2030, the European Union plans to cut back on per capita food waste at the retail and consumer levels and food losses along the production and supply chains for food.
