About ice flakers
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. Ice flakers are highly moldable, have a large surface area, and no hard edges. They are used for a variety of cooling purposes across healthcare, industrial, and commercial applications. Over the years, the reliability and durability of ice flakers has increased with advances in design, technology, and manufacturing.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global ice flaker market to grow at a CAGR of 7.84% over the period 2014-2019.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bionics Scientific, Brema Ice Makers, BUUS Refrigeration, Electrolux, Focusun Refrigeration, GEA, Howe, MAJA, and Telstar.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The market is expected to be driven by the introduction of eco-friendly machines. Vendors are focusing on saving energy, limiting the carbon footprint, and reducing dependence on natural resources by introducing energy-efficient designs and using eco-friendly refrigerants. The enhancement of serviceability and maintenance is also propelling the demand for ice flakers among end-users.”
According to the report, the versatility and cooling efficiency of ice flakes is expected to be the main driver in the market. The demand for ice making equipment is rising, as flake ice can be used for a range of applications, is not expensive to produce, and has a superior cooling effect compared to ice cubes.
Further, the report states that due to low space availability, ice flakers are crammed into basements, which have limited air circulation, leading to breakdowns due to overheating and thus increasing operational costs.
