Global Food and Beverage Homogenizers Market 2017-2021
About Food and Beverage Homogenizers
A homogenizer is an equipment used for the homogenization of various types of material to produce suspensions, emulsions, and other products. Homogenization is the process of reducing particle sizes of products, such as fruit juices, jam, ice-cream, food additives, wine, and others under extreme pressure, turbulence, and shear stress for improving the stability and texture of the products. The liquid products are passed through a homogenizing valve at very high pressure.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global food and beverage homogenizers market to grow at a CAGR of 5.68% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Food and Beverage Homogenizers Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global food and beverage homogenizers market: GEA Group, Krones, Sonic, SPX FLOW, and Tetra Pak International.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BEE International, Bertoli, BOS Homogenisers, FBF ITALIA, EKATO HOLDING, FrymaKoruma, Goma, Microfluidics, MİLKOTEK-HOMMAK, and Silverson.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing preference for high-capacity homogenizers. There has been a growing preference in food and beverage processing companies for homogenizers with higher capacities to improve their productivity. Therefore, the manufacturers are thriving on fulfilling the demand of the end-users. Some of the key vendors have come up with high capacity homogenizers to improve their competitive advantage and to fulfill the demands of the customers.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in number of food and beverage processing plants. Various food and beverage processing companies are expanding production capacities and launching new product offerings to meet the growing consumer demand. They are also building new processing plants to explore new market opportunities to capture the market and increase competitive advantage.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High energy consumption and increased maintenance cost. There is a significant amount of thermal and electrical energy used by food and beverage homogenizers. This high energy consumption is mainly due to homogenization of the products at high pressure. When the products are subjected to homogenization, they undergo rapid pressure changes and high shear and impact force. These increase in shear and impact force increases the energy consumption of the homogenizers. The increase in energy consumption will cause additional costs for the food processing manufacturers, as the operational cost will be increased. This will result in the decrease of profit margin.
