At HostMilano 2017, the vitality of the sector is confirmed by the latest data from UCIMAC, the organisation representing Espresso Coffee Machine Manufacturers and member of ANIMA-Assofoodtec. In Italy, the “Espresso coffee machine” industry reported a turnover of 445 million Euros in 2016 with a 4.7% increase due in large part to the foreign market, and an almost similar outlook earmarked for this year (+4.5%). Exports are also on the increase (up 3.8% last year and 4.3% in 2017), with a new development: although the main target markets are still in Europe, there has been a sharp increase in the share taken by Asian countries, particularly South Korea and China.
