Demand for Spray Drying Equipment Driven by Food and Pharmaceutical Industry

San Francisco, California, November 09, 2017: TMR Research has added a new report to its repository, titled, “Spray Drying Equipment Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Growth, and Forecast 2017–2025.” The report studies every facet of the market to uncover its overall revenue, size, competitive dynamics, and growth prospects, going forward. It studies the current market scope and its trajectory from 2017 to 2025. It covers all the major trends and technologies likely to mold the market over the forecast period. It also highlights various drivers, restraints, and opportunities so that players can take advantages of certain factors and avoid certain pitfalls.

Spray drying has a number of advantages. First, it has the ability to complete the drying process within seconds, which gives it an edge over industrial drying techniques. This makes it an ideal choice in the food industry since it causes minimal loss in flavor. Second, it produces powders having controllable particle size and overall better quality. It also helps to manage bulk density, extent of crystallinity, and residual solvent levels. This makes it particularly suitable for the pharmaceuticals industry where the optimum absorption of a drug is dependent primarily on the size of the particle. Third, the damage caused to products in spray drying is much lesser than in heat drying. Because of these, it is seeing swift uptake.

Posing a challenge to the market, on the other hand, is the steep upfront capital required on account of the high cost of main and auxiliary equipment and also the exorbitant operation costs. Continued maintenance costs are another drawback. This is because one-fluid and two-fluid nozzles are highly prone to clogging and abrasion at the nozzle mouth. Besides, powder sticking to the internal chamber walls result in cleaning costs. Helping to overcome such drawbacks are the soaring demand from the booming pharmaceutical and food industries.

The various kinds of equipment available in the global spray drying market are rotary atomizer, closed loop, fluidized, nozzle atomizer, centrifugal, and others such as customized and laboratory-specific mini spray dryers. Of them, the segment of nozzle atomizer spray dryer, required for products needing consistency of a coarse powder, holds a leading share in the market. The powder spray dryer is mainly applied in food products that are sensitive to heat.

From a geographical standpoint, North America leads the global spray drying equipment market. The U.S. and Canada, which account for maximum demand for liquid milk alternatives and other dairy products in the powdered form, are found to be powering the market in the region. In addition, the massive food ingredients and food additives market in the U.S., along with the industrial applications is also powering the region.

In terms of growth rate, however, Asia Pacific is expected to surpass all other regions in the global spray drying equipment market. China is the main driver of growth in the region owing to the high demand for milk powder. In the Rest of the World, Africa is a key market on account of growing coffee production.

SPX Flow Technology, Dedert Corporation, European Spray Dry Technology LLP, Changzhou Lemar Drying Engineering Co. Ltd., Acmefil Engineering Systems Pvt. Ltd., and New AVM Systech Pvt. Ltd. are to name a few prominent players in the global market for spray drying equipment.
