Global Ice Flaker Market 2017-2021

About ice flaker

An ice flaker is a continuous-type ice maker that freezes and dispenses irregular bits of ice simultaneously. Flake ice can be either scale or granular ice. Most flake machines use a stationary evaporator. Flake ice is constantly scraped from the evaporator walls of the ice making machine by a slowly rotating auger.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global ice flaker market to grow at a CAGR of 8.23% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Ice Flaker Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global ice flaker market: Follett, Hoshizaki Electric, Scotsman Ice Systems, and The Manitowoc Company.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bionics Scientific Technologies, Brema Ice Makers, BUUS Refrigeration, Electrolux, Focusun Refrigeration, GEA, Howe Corporation, MAJA, and Telstar Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is advances in technology. New technologies are being introduced in ice flakers that have improved the reliability, durability, cost-efficiency, convenience, and sanitation of these machines. The top vendors in the market are focusing on the improvement and integration of controls. Instead of requiring manual inspections, new models can now detect failures and simplify troubleshooting. Vendors have introduced intelligent diagnostics systems to determine the right diagnosis of issues through the constant monitoring of sub-system controls and refrigeration.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rise in organized retail outlets. The organized retail sector in developed countries like the US and the UK is established, while it is becoming significantly popular in developing countries such as China, India, and Brazil. The continuous changes in consumer lifestyles have led to the increase in demand for an array of frozen and chilled food, driving the demand for flake ice from the organized retail segment.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is space constraints. While ice flakers are not typically bulky, finding room for this equipment poses a challenge to retail stores, restaurants, and other industries. Most ice flakers need space for the equipment, bin, and water filter. In addition to this, air-cooled ice flakers require proper ventilation to keep the unit cool and maximize ice production. With the costs of floor spaces rising, customers may be forced to refrain from spending on this equipment.
