Key Beverage Technology Trends
Industry 4.0 technologies, like the IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, advanced analytics, and robotics are gaining traction.
Fremont, CA: The emerging beverage technology trends are primarily concerned with increasing sustainability to address growing concerns about climate change. Industry 4.0 technologies, like the IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, advanced analytics, and robotics are also gaining traction. These technologies boost beverage production productivity across the board, from sourcing and manufacturing to product distribution and sales. Another major emerging trend that is meeting rapidly changing customer preferences is eCommerce. Furthermore, it enables beverage brands to reach their consumers more efficiently and significantly lower upfront costs. Many beverage companies are incorporating immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to increase customer engagement. Furthermore, blockchain-based solutions and advanced beverage production systems improve supply chain visibility and production throughput.
Let's see some of the top Beverage Technology Trends.
Concerns about global warming and climate change motivate businesses and consumers to embrace sustainability. As a result, sustainability is quickly becoming the top trend in the beverage industry. Consumers are aware of the industry's various environmental impacts and support brands that align with their sustainability goals. Beverage companies increasingly use sustainable materials in their packaging choices, such as plastic-free or reusable packaging. However, it has a significant environmental impact because single-use packaging contributes to land and marine plastic pollution.
- Internet of Things
The digitalization of industrial processes allows beverage manufacturers to create a connected ecosystem from sourcing to distribution. Furthermore, the need for improved food safety standards and transparency is hastening the adoption of IoT in the beverage sector. As a result, businesses can enhance operational efficiency and closely monitor manufacturing processes.
- Smart Warehousing
By automating various aspects of warehouses, beverage manufacturers can boost productivity while lowering labor and waste costs. In addition, smart warehousing ensures an efficient material handling system that minimizes damage and loss. As a result, voice-controlled warehouse operations and the use of automated guided vehicles for product handling, as well as automatic flow control and bottling solutions, are on the rise.
