The global spray drying equipment market size is estimated at USD 4.5 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% to reach USD 6.0 billion by 2025. The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including the rising consumption of processed and RTE food products and technological innovation in the field of spray drying equipment.
COVID-19 Impact on the Global Spray drying equipment Market
The significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the growth of the spray drying equipment market can be seen in its application areas. The major application areas of spray drying equipment include food & beverage, which witnessed a decrease in production in the first and second quarters of the year. However, the demand for these products is projected to increase majorly from the third quarter of 2020 due to the increase in demand for processed food products such as milk powders, ready-to-eat foods, and packaged foods. Another major sector that has been positively impacted is the pharmaceutical industry. The production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and vaccines by spray drying equipment has been a constantly growing industry. The ability of manufacturers of spray drying equipment to produce fine, uniform micron size particles, as well as heat-sensitive vaccines, are two important factors that are projected to encourage the usage of spray drying equipment in the pharmaceutical industry.

Driver: Increase in the consumption of processed and RTE Foods
Ready-to-eat (RTE) foods, as the name suggests, refer to that form of animal or plant-derived food products or a combination that can be offered to customers after being pre-washed, pre-cooked, processed, and frozen. Hence, they do not require elaborate processing by end-consumers before consumption; thus, saving their time and energy. According to the US Food Code, RTE foods, also known as ready meals, packed foods, or instant ready meals, is the largest segment globally in the overall conventional and non-conventional food industry due to higher consumer acceptance of food products. Further, changes in the lifestyle of consumers over the last decade due to rapid urbanization have led to a high demand for processed and ready-to-eat food products. A steep rise in dual-income levels, standards of living and the demand for convenience have also led to an increase in the busy lifestyles of consumers.
Thus, processed food manufacturers are opting for spray drying technologies. For instance, maltodextrin acts as a food additive in confectioneries and is widely used in sports and wellness products; maltodextrin is usually a spray-dried powder extracted from corn starch. The significant rise in demand for maltodextrin has led to an increase in the usage of spray dryers among food additive manufacturers and has reflected on the spray drying equipment market positively.
Opportunity: Increase in encapsulation application in food products
Spray drying technique has been widely used for drying heat-sensitive foods, pharmaceuticals, and other substances, as it witnesses rapid solvent evaporation from the droplets. Although it is most often considered a dehydration process, and spray drying can also be used as an encapsulation method when it entraps ‘active’ material within a protective matrix, which is essentially inert to the material being encapsulated. As compared to the other conventional microencapsulation techniques, it offers the advantage of producing microcapsules in a relatively simple, continuous processing operation.
Recently, the spray drying technique has been widely used for encapsulation techniques. Encapsulation using spray drying is highly preferred due to economic advantages as compared to the other encapsulation methods. Encapsulation of oils and food products using the spray drying technique is done to enhance the handling properties of products and improve oxidation stability by protecting the bioactive compounds.
On the basis of application, the food segment is projected to be the largest segment during the forecast period
The quick process of spray drying is largely used in the food industry, particularly in the dairy sector. Dairy products, such as milk, whey, cheese, buttermilk, butter, and dry creamers, are common items made using the spray drying technique. Instant coffee, dry creamers, and instant soups are also a few end-products that utilize spray-drying technology. It has a wide range of applications, which include food ingredients and the conversion of fruit & vegetable juices into instant mixes, instant coffee mixes, and drying of eggs and dairy products.
Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the spray drying equipment market.
The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market for spray drying equipment. India is one of the largest producers of milk in the world. Hence, the market for spray drying has been consistently witnessing growth in the Indian dairy processing equipment market. The market for infant formula and baby food has growth potential in countries such as China, Japan, and India. This would lead to an increase in demand for spray drying equipment.
