Freeze-Drying Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027
The global freeze-drying equipment market size reached US$ 2.0 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.1 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.77% during 2022-2027. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.
Freeze drying equipment is utilized to remove frozen solvents and bound water molecules from a material through sublimation and desorption processes. Unlike other dehydration equipment that uses higher temperatures, freeze-drying equipment does not cause shrinkage or toughening of the material, which helps in keeping the product appearance and characteristics intact. Consequently, the equipment is employed in the food and beverage (F&B) industry to preserve and retain the flavor and smell of perishable products. It also finds substantial applications in the pharmaceutical industry to extend the shelf life of heat-sensitive and thermolabile materials, such as proteins, microbes, tissues and plasma.
Freeze-Drying Equipment Market Trends:
The growing inclination towards packaged food products on account of changing lifestyles, busy schedules and inflating disposable incomes represents one of the key factors impelling the market growth. Additionally, as the freeze-drying method removes water, reduces the overall weight of the food and helps in easy storage and transportation of food to military camps and spacecraft, its demand is escalating worldwide. Apart from this, the rising prevalence of diseases is increasing the application of freeze-drying equipment in the pharmaceutical industry to store injectables and biological samples for longer periods. Furthermore, with the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the urgency of testing, there is a rise in the adoption of freeze-drying equipment to meet the demand for diagnostic kits. The growing focus of researchers on developing more sophisticated processes that combine freeze drying technology with electron microscopy, biochemistry and refined surgery is anticipated to further drive the market in the coming years.
