CHICAGO, Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- According to MarketsandMarkets™, the report "Spray Drying Equipment Market by Product Type (Rotary Atomizer, Nozzle Atomizer, Fluidized, Centrifugal), Application (Food, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Feed), Cycle Type, Drying Stage, Flow Type, Region - Global Forecast To 2025", The global spray drying equipment market size is estimated at USD 4.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% to reach USD 6.0 billion by 2025. The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including the rising consumption of processed and RTE food products and technological innovation in the field of spray drying equipment.
The spray drying process involves the production of powder from liquids by evaporating the solvent. Spray drying technology has witnessed extensive usage in the food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. This technology is used to encapsulate flavors and medicines in the form of powders and microcapsules.
The co-current flow segment is projected to be the fastest-growing in terms of value during the forecast period.
Co-current flow type dominated the spray drying market equipment in 2019. This type of spray dryer is used for spray drying heat-sensitive products more accurately as the drying air is cooled by evaporation before the increase in the final temperature occurs. The yield (fraction of product discharged from the drying chamber) is higher with this type of spray dryer. In this process, the spray-dried powder is mixed with the drying air, and there is no need to mix the two fractions externally.
The rotary atomizer segment is projected to account for a major share in the market during the forecast period
Rotary atomizers convert feed into fine droplets by spraying them through a high-speed rotating perforated disc, which is known as rotary disc atomization. These atomizers are driven by high-velocity liquid discharge from the edge of a disc. The spinning disc utilizes the shearing action of the air at the outer edge of the disc to break the liquid feed into a spray that leaves the disc in a horizontal direction. Rotary atomizers produce fine to coarse droplets, ranging from 30-120 micrometers. They are generally more expensive than nozzle atomizers but do not clog the outlets and can produce uniformly-sized droplets.
The food segment is projected to account for a major share in the market during the forecast period
The quick process of spray drying is largely used in the food industry, particularly in the dairy sector. Dairy products, such as milk, whey, cheese, buttermilk, butter, and dry creamers, are common items made using the spray drying technique. Instant coffee, dry creamers, and instant soups are also a few end-products that utilize spray-drying technology
The open cycle segment is projected to account for a major share in the market during the forecast period
The spray drying equipment market is dominated by the open segment, in 2019. The open cycle spray dryer involves heating of the air drawn from the atmosphere and conveyed through the chamber, and then being exhausted to the atmosphere again. The dry, powdered substances, which do not involve any solvents or special inert gases, such as nitrogen and oxygen, are used in the open cycle spray dryer. Industries such as food, feed, specialty chemicals, soaps & detergents use this type of spray drying equipment.
