In spray dryers, the material to be dried is atomized into small particles and dried by bringing it in contact with the heating medium and the dried product is obtained in the form of dry granular powder. Spray dryer operation generally consists of three main parts — atomization, contacting with the heating medium and collection of product.
Spray dryers are used where functional and nutritional value of the material and drying of heat sensitive materials is of primary concern, such as in the food and pharmaceutical industry. Spray dryers are used for a variety of industrial products, such as milk powder, cereals, antibiotics, vitamins, paint pigments, catalyst support, ceramics, etc. and thus, there has been significant demand for spray dryers from food & beverage, pharmaceutical and chemicals, among other industries.
Increasing demand from the food and pharmaceutical industry is the major driving factor for the growth of spray dryers market. Spray dryers also help in increasing the shelf life of products, which helps in easy transportation of products and minimizing the damage caused during the drying of products, which in turn, is resulting in an increase in demand for spray dryers.
Furthermore, technological advancements in spray dryers that increase their drying efficiency and minimize energy consumption will create opportunities for growth in the spray dryer market. Apart from this, in some cases, drying of food products with the help of spray dryers has resulted in some changes in food products’ organoleptic properties, such as taste, smell, etc. This particular factor may hamper the growth of the spray dryer market owing to changing preference for alternative dryers for the same. Also, high maintenance and operation costs are yet another major factors expected to limit the selection of spray dryers in various industrial applications.
Spray Dryer Market Segmentation By Type – Atomizer (Rotary, Nozzle), Fluidized, Centrifugal; By Mode of Operation – Batch, Continuous; By Operating Principal – Direct Drying, Indirect Drying; By Flow – Co-Current, Counter Current, Mixed Flow; By Applications – Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Others
Significant growth of the food and pharmaceuticals industry in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region wherein spray dryers are frequently used will help in boosting the demand for spray dryers.
