Commercial Food Dehydrators Market Forecasts to 2028 - Global Analysis By Energy Source (Electricity, Solar and Biofuel), Technology (Horizontal Airflow and Vertical Airflow), End User (Nutraceutical Industry, Cosmetics Industry and Other End Users) and Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Commercial Food Dehydrators Market is accounted for $2.16 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $3.43 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period. A commercial food dehydrator is a machine that eliminates aquatic components from natural food products, reducing microbial growth and natural food product wastage. Commercial food dehydrators circulate warm air to heat natural food products to the desired temperature without affecting the quality or nutritional content. People's growing desire for natural food products has led to an increase in the need for machinery that expedites drying and preserving them.
According to the National Restaurant Association, which is in the United States, restaurant sales totaled about USD 590 billion in 2010 and are projected to hit USD 863 billion by 2019. As a result, an increase in the number of food service establishments is anticipated.
Population Growth and Increased Diversification of Diets has surged growth in Brazil
Brazil is one of the highest calorie-consumpting nations in South and Central America, with an average daily consumption of about 3,100 calories. Almost all agricultural products used in Brazil are being eaten in huge quantities. This trend toward higher overall food consumption and increased diet variety is being fueled by population growth, rising income levels, and the growth of the middle class.
High calorie content in dehydrated foods
The growth of the global food dehydrator market would be hampered by the high calorie content of many dehydrated foods. The nutritional value of dehydrated food is the same as that of fresh food, but sometimes, when the moisture level of the dry food decreases, its calorie content rises. For instance, a dried version has 212 calories per half, compared to just 70 for a fresh half, which will make it more difficult for fitness enthusiasts to consume the product.
Increase in consumer awareness in reducing food waste
The necessity of reducing food waste will increase consumer awareness, which will drive the demand for food dehydrators. The market will also benefit from rising consumer disposable incomes and, subsequently, from their increased willingness to spend on dehydrated food products with an extended shelf life. As governments and international organisations strive to reduce food waste, it is projected that food dehydrators will become increasingly widespread. These groups frequently use dehydrators to preserve unconsumed food.
Reduces Vitamins A and C
During the forecast period, food dehydrators have the drawback of lowering some of the vitamin A and C content in fruits and vegetables. It is inevitable that this will occur during the drying and dehydrating process. Techniques have been developed to offset this loss, such as exposing fruits to sulphur before drying.
The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 had a variety of effects on the growth of the worldwide market, including a significant increase in the need for long-lasting foods and a decline in overall food production activities. The use of dried foods also increased during this time as individuals loaded up on necessary food items. These foods can be stored easily and have a longer shelf life. This situation significantly accelerated the use of food dehydrators in the commercial sector. The use of these items in hotels and restaurants, however, decreased as a result of the lack of travel during lockdown restrictions, since there was less need to preserve food scraps and prevent food wastage.
The horizontal airflow segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
Compared to vertical air flow technology, which releases moist air from the bottom or top over other food products, horizontal air flow technology dehydrators are more in demand because flavours of food products are more likely to mix together. As a result, the trays need to be frequently replaced. The fruits and vegetables connected to the bottom dehydrate more rapidly.
The commercial segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The commercial segment is predicted to have the highest CAGR during the projection period, Due to the food dehydrators that are used to dry fruits, vegetables, and meats. They can also be used to make snacks like beef jerky and fruit leather. They're also used by certain users to preserve herbs. When cooking is not an option, food dehydrators offer a quick way to add dried items to recipes or on top of dishes that demand for it.
Region with largest share:
Over the projected period, food processing companies are anticipated to grow their operations and boost the market for commercial food dehydrators in order to meet rising customer demands in the North American region. Additionally, campaigns to reduce food waste have increased this demand. Food dehydrators assist market participants in trading by substantially reducing the size and weight of the food. As a result, producers are able to import and export a wider variety of foods in huge amounts that can be consumed after being rehydrated. It is anticipated that market participants in the food trade will help the market grow.
Region with highest CAGR:
The need for food dehydrators in the Asia Pacific region is being driven by new developments in technology that enable efficient production, an expanded product line, an efficient operating system, sales monitoring, and smart packaging. Additionally, a variety of government and non-governmental initiatives have been undertaken to preserve food surplus in dehydrators before transferring it to areas affected by natural disasters or food shortages. Therefore, it is anticipated that such measures will boost market expansion.
