Flour milling machines are increasingly being embedded with IoT technology to monitor production and for predictive maintenance. Flour milling machines are installed with sensors that transmit real time production data to a computer system over the internet. Data is continuously monitored for production efficiency and to understand the state of machine components. For instance, Sanku, a company that develops fortification technologies collaborated with Vodafone to offer IoT technology for flour mills in Tanzania. The technology allows a single person to manage around 100 mills in real time. The Diorit MDDY / MDDZ flour milling machine by Buhler is embedded with sensors such as roll disengagement monitoring, roll rotational speed monitoring, roll temperature monitoring, bearing temperature monitoring that continuously transmit data to a computer for monitoring purposes.

The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the flour, rice and malt manufacturing market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Food and beverage manufacturers depend on supply of raw materials from domestic and international suppliers. As many governments restricted the movement of goods across countries and locally, manufacturers had to halt production due to lack of raw materials. Also, restrictions on trade of non-essential goods and fear of contamination through manufacturing facilities contributed to the decline. The outbreak is expected to continue to have a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the flour, rice and malt manufacturing market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan’ event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.

Many countries across the globe are experiencing falling prices of crops due to overcapacity; this is expected result in low raw material costs for flour, rice and malt manufacturing companies. For example, in 2019, the Indian government spent $873 million to subsidize the export of sugar as a result of overproduction of sugarcane, thereby reducing prices. Thus, overproduction of certain crops is likely to result in higher profit margins for food and beverage companies. Higher profit margins will enable flour, rice and malt manufacturing companies to increase their production and drive the market going forward.
