The fruits and vegetables washer market is expected to witness steady growth during the forecasted period of 2024-2029. 

A good diet consisting of plenty of fruits and vegetables provides a variety of health benefits that can help a person avoid heart disease, stroke, and some cancers. However, it is important to select and prepare the fruits and vegetables safely. Some raw fruits and vegetables tend to contain harmful germs that can cause health problems such as Salmonella, E.coli, and listeria. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), germs on fresh produce have been the leading cause of foodborne illnesses in the United States. CDC recommends the washing of fruits and vegetables before consumption to reduce the risk of foodborne diseases. The chances of which individuals can contract food poisoning are high among adults who are 65 or older, children younger than 5, pregnant women, and people who have a weak immune system. The common method of cleaning fruits is done manually, by hand, washing the fruit/vegetable under water, and then drying them using a cloth/paper towel. To decrease the number of health issues from raw fruits and vegetables, machinery has been developed to automatically clean and sort the fruits and vegetables in bulk.


The market growth is driven by the increase in health consciousness and the rise in crop production. Clean fruits or vegetables will provide the necessary hygiene and safety for the consumption of the fruit/vegetable. Automation of fruit and vegetable cleaning is how the fruit and vegetable washer came to be in the market. The washers that are used in industries include rolling drum Brush washing machines, brush-type cleaning machines, and regular bubble washing machines. These machines use UV/O3 water treatment to disinfect the clean water, kill harmful residues, and decompose the pesticide residues. Pesticide residue is one the major reasons needed for cleaning fruits and vegetables because consumption without cleaning of the vegetables/fruits with pesticides can lead to fatal health problems. These are applicable for use for all types of fruits and vegetables and are widely used in vegetable and fruit processing factories, hotels, farms, and many others. The fruits and vegetables washer market has been segmented by type, technology, method, and geography. The different types of machinery used depend on the type of fruit and vegetable used for washing, the technology used for the creation of the machinery, and the geographical aspects such as environment, production of crops, and demand for fruits and vegetables factor into the growth of the fruit and vegetables washer market.

Market Drivers:

  • Increase in health-conscious population: One of the leading drivers to the growth of the fruits and vegetables market is the concern over the safety and hygiene of the fruits and vegetables that are acquired from the market. Raw fruits and vegetables are harmful to health with health issues such as Salmonella, E. coli, and many others. Sometimes, fruits and vegetables that are sold in public have a chance of being soiled, and the need for cleaning tools will be expected to increase in the market.
  • Increasing crop production: Crop cultivation has shown a rapid increase in growth during the past few years. As per the Food and Agriculture Organization, global fruit and vegetable production has reached 910 million tonnes in 2021, which is a 1.1% increase from 2020, and 1.2 billion tonnes, which is a 1.4% increase from 2020, respectively. As production increases at a steady pace, the need for cleaning equipment and staff will increase. Since everything is automated in the current era of technology, the market’s demand for fruit and vegetable washers is expected to show an equivalent increase as well.

Key Players:

  • KENT RO Systems (Kent Healthcare products): An Indian healthcare products company that is known for its wide range of water purifiers, which are based on the process of reverse osmosis purification.
  • Skymen Cleaning Equipment Shenzhen Co. Ltd: A leading Chinese manufacturing company with a wide range of products which include ultrasonic cleaning machines.

Regional Analysis:

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant growth in the fruit and vegetable washer market during the forecasted period of 2024-2028. The major factor that leads to the growth of the market in this region is the rapid fruit and vegetable production. As per the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), India and China are the top producers of fruits and vegetables across the world as of 2021-22. During 2021, India produced around 107.24 metric tonnes of fruits and 208.84 metric tonnes of vegetables.
