Survey and Statistical Data on Food Processing Machinery (2005 Announcement)
1.Major characteristics
In 2004, the Japanese economy started under the chaotic conditions of the world after the Iraq war, facing with unresolved domestic issues such as persistent deflation and severe employment situation. In addition, it experienced the outbreaks of bird flu in the early spring and natural disasters, such as the record-setting series of hot days on which the temperature rises above 30°C in the summer, a series of direct hits by heavy typhoons, and the huge earthquake (Niigata Chuetsu Earthquake). After the spring of the same year, however, the capital investment showed a slight signs of recovery, the economic climate has generally been on course for recovery.

In the global economy, the Asian economy continued to register high economic growth rates, driven by the Chinese economy which maintained its high economic growth rate.
While the US economy, which had the twin-deficit problem, showed slight signs of slowing after presidential election in the early fall, but remained steady, and these area served as the main market for Japanese companies, which created overseas demands.

Under these circumstances, the food industry, the customer of food processing machinery, which kept exerting serious effort to ensure safety and sanitation of food products based on the amendments to the Japanese Agricultural Standards Law and the Food Sanitation Law, vigorously continued to tackle this issue by exerting further efforts in response to strong demand for safety of food products from consumers.

Against this background, the total volume of sales of food processing machinery in 2004 increased 5.8% from the previous year to 463.457 billion yen. This was affected by a gradual upward trend in the equipment investment due to demand based on the strong social requirements for safety- and sanitation-compliant machinery and equipment, and the signs of recovery from the prolonged recession, as well as supported by steady export.
