Global Industrial Blender Machine Market 2017-2021
About Industrial Blender Machine
An industrial blender machine is an equipment used major in industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical, cosmetics, and pulp and paper for blending purposes. The mixing elements are arranged such that they encounter the mixer shaft at regular intervals. The mixing element's size, shape, arrangement, and speed depend on the product that is being blended. The axial and radial motion of the mixing shafts enables these mixing elements to blend the mixture in appropriate ratios.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial blender machine market to grow at a CAGR of 5.59% during the period 2017-2021.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: amixon, Arcrite Engineering, Bulkmatic, Jinhu Ginhong Machinery, and Morton Mixers & Blender.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is referred as the fourth industrial revolution, which focuses on the development of automation and implementation of IoT in industries. The adoption of Industry 4.0 enables industrial advances with the help of advanced computing, analytics, low-cost sensing, and new levels of connectivity enabled by the Internet. The term 'Industry 4.0' was first used by the Germans, for flow optimization and customization, asset tracking, predictive maintenance, and real-time inventory optimization.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Innovations in blending machines. Prism mixing is one of the latest technologies that is disrupting blending operations. Prism mixing offers an improved blending of powdered and granular materials. It enables proper mixing of tumbling products and improved time to blend products homogeneously, by adding low shear mixing to the rotating Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC). The Prism is oriented at rights angles to the rotation axis when IBC is loaded into the blender. The rotation of the IBC enables the Prism to divide the product, which is forced outwards to the corners of the IBC. IBC blending is the key step in dry blend processes where Prism has high use. The additional shear offered by the Prism enables the mixing of cohesive poor-flowing materials to be blended in the IBC.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Segregation of ingredients in blender machines. Dry mixing processes involve higher chances of the segregation of powders. The particles that are being mixed generally involve varied sizes, shapes, and densities. This can lead to the formation of fluids with high viscosities during the blending process, which in turn, encourage particles to adhere to the walls of the blender machine. This segregation of powders can lead to many problems such as inconsistent particle sizes, as it creates different areas with coarse and fine particle sizes. This leads to the need to increase the blending time, and thus causes process delays. Segregation also may lead to variations in the color, appearance, and taste of the final product.
