Dryers are an indispensable part of the process industry as the efficiency of the drying process has a significant impact on the product quality and process efficiency. Fluidized bed dryers possess high drying efficiency, are capacity of handling a wide range of materials and are energy efficient. Attributing to these favourable characteristics they are mostly preferred in process industries. Fluidized bed dryers are pneumatic type of dryers, in which solids are dried by introducing hot air with a certain velocity from the perforated plate, owing to which solids behave like fluids.
They are used in the drying of granular crystalline, coarse and fine materials in chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries. These dryers are also used in special applications, such as drying of paste, solutions and sprayed liquid on inert materials. Fluidized bed dryers can be operated in batch and continuous modes. Generally, continuous fluidized bed dryers are mostly used in food, pharmaceutical and fertilizer industries.
Significant growth of industries, such as food, pharmaceutical and fertilizer, where fluidized bed dryers play a vital role in the manufacturing process, is driving the global market. Government regulations and standard norms in food & pharmaceutical industries over the manufacturing of products under controlled environments are leading to an increase in the demand for energy efficient equipment, which subsequently is leading to an increase in the demand for fluidized bed dryers.
The increase in production capacity and new upcoming projects in food & pharmaceutical industries in developing countries, such as China and India, are leading to an increase in the demand for fluidized bed dryers. Apart from this, the high cost of fluidized bed dryers is a major restrain for the growth of the fluidized bed dryers market. Also, continuous blockage of outlet filter and development of static charge, which increases the chances of fire, are the major disadvantages of fluidized bed dryers that hamper the growth of the fluidized bed dryers market.
Fluidized Bed Dryer Market Segmentation By Type – Vibrated Fluid Bed, Fluid -Bed Granulation, Spouted Bed Dryer, Mechanically Agitated Fluid -Bed Dryer, Centrifugal Fluid-Bed Dryer, Fluidized Spray Dryer; By Mode of Operation – Batch, Continuous; By Application – Food, Fertilizer, Chemical, Construction Material, Paper & Pulp, Pharmaceutical, Others
The global fluidized bed dryer market is dominated by the Asia-Pacific region, especially China, India and Japan, owing to the increasing focus on high quality processed food and the growing food processing capacity in the region. Also, significant growth in the usage of fertilizers where fluidized bed dryers are prominently used is expected to fuel the demand in the APAC region during the forecast period. Further, an increase in the number of chemical manufacturing plants in the APAC region is anticipated to surge the demand for fluidized bed dryers during the forecast period.
In North America, increasing adoption of fluidized bed dryers in food processing plants and the fertilizer industry will help boost demand over the forecast period. North America, followed by Europe, is slated to show significant growth in the global fluidized bed dryer market. High food processing capacity and rising demand for energy efficient equipment are expected to spur demand for fluidized bed dryers in these regions over the forecast period. On the other hand, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa regions are expected to register slow growth in the fluidized bed dryer market over the forecast period.
Examples of some of the market participants in the global fluidized bed dryer market identified across the value chain include: Metso Corporation, Andritz AG, Carrier Vibrating Equipment, Inc., Changzhou Yibu Drying Equipment Co., Ltd., Changzhou Fanqun Drying Equipment Co. Ltd., Ventilex Inc. and Yamato Sanko Mfg. Co. Ltd., among others.
