Global Industrial Dryers Market 2016-2020

About the Industrial Dryers Market

Drying is a unit operation wherein a liquid is removed from a solid by other than mechanical means. Drying uses heat to evaporate the water content from various materials with the help of dryers. Industrial dryers are used to reduce moisture efficiently from large quantities of bulk materials. The principle involved in drying is the drawing of moisture from the interior of individual particles to the surface. This moisture on the surface is then evaporated. Industrial dryers are constructed depending on the type and quantity of material to be processed.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global industrial dryers market to grow at a CAGR of 4.17% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Industrial Dryers Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global industrial dryers market: Carrier Vibrating Equipment, FEECO International, GEA, Glatt, and Metso.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Thompson Dryer, SSP, Westpro, AVM Systech, and Transparent Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend which is expected to have a big impact on the market is superheated steam drying. Superheated steam refers to the steam at temperatures higher than its boiling point at the absolute pressure where the temperature is measured. The steam can cool down, by losing its internal energy by some amount, resulting in a fall in temperature to some extent without changing from the gaseous state and becomes a mixture of saturated vapor and liquid. If the saturated steam (a combination of both gas and saturated vapor) is heated at constant pressure, its temperature also remains constant, as the vapor quality increases to 100% and becomes dry saturated steam. Continuous heating will then superheat the dry saturated steam. This occur if the saturated steam contacts a surface with a higher temperature.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is increased stringency in safety standards and norms. Dryers are widely used in industries like cement, fertilizer, and waste and sludge management. Since dryers employ operations like heating, there is a significant possibility of fire or explosions during the process. Thus, ensuring the safety of personnel and reducing the possibility of explosions have long been areas of concern.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could curtail market growth is the apprehension about new technology which leads to lower adoption rates by end-users.
