Freeze Drying Equipment Market Trends



  • Growing need for freeze drying to boost market growth


The growing inclination towards packaged food products on account of changing lifestyles, busy schedules and inflating disposable incomes represents one of the key factors impelling the market growth. Additionally, as the freeze-drying method removes water, reduces the overall weight of the food and helps in easy storage and transportation of food to military camps and spacecraft, its demand is escalating worldwide. Apart from this, the rising prevalence of diseases is increasing the application of freeze-drying equipment in the pharmaceutical industry to store injectables and biological samples for longer periods. Furthermore, with the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the urgency of testing, there is a rise in the adoption of freeze-drying equipment to meet the demand for diagnostic kits. The growing focus of researchers on developing more sophisticated processes that combine freeze drying technology with electron microscopy, biochemistry and refined surgery is anticipated to further drive the market in the coming years.



  • Adoption of Freeze-drying for various application to boost market growth


Need for freeze-drying of novel biologic medicines and injectable formulations as well as the growing acceptance of the technique for high-value materials that are delicate and brittle. The growth of the freeze-drying technique has been greatly aided by the pharmaceutical business, and this advancement is made possible by a number of crucial factors, such as the expansion of lyophilization contract manufacturing services and investments in R&D projects


Additionally, as a consequence of changing lifestyles, busy schedules, and increased disposable incomes, consumers are beginning to prefer packaged meals, which is leading to an increase in the usage of freezing drying equipment in the food processing sector. Because they are shielded from moisture, light, and oxygen, freeze-dried products have a longer shelf life and may be stored for prolonged periods of time without losing their quality or texture. However, the stringent standards and laws governing the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries act as a barrier to the growth of the freeze-drying market. Additionally. Therefore, such application related to the pharmaceutical and food has enhanced the Freeze  Drying Equipment market CAGR across the globe in the recent years.


However, freeze-drying technology's high cost impede growth of the Freeze  Drying Equipment market revenue.


Freeze Drying Equipment Market Segment Insights


Freeze Drying Equipment Product Insights


The Freeze Drying Equipment market segmentation, based on product, includes bench top freeze dryers, and mobile freeze dryers. The mobile freeze dryers Freeze Drying Equipment segment held the majority share in 2021 contribution in respect to the  Freeze Drying Equipment market revenue. This is primarily owing to the ease of use, portability, and multi-functionality benefits. Freeze drying is a method of removing water from perishable products in order to extend their shelf life. The process of freeze drying is required for the frozen water in the material to directly transform into vapor.


January 2023 Kanata-based medical diagnostics company Evik Diagnostics received a nearly $1 million investment from the federal government to scale up production and reduce their energy consumption.This will help Evik Diagnostics ramp up production and modernize their freeze-drying equipment, reducing their energy consumption by165,000 kW annually, equivalent to approximately15 Canadian households.

Freeze Drying Equipment Type Insights


The  Freeze Drying Equipment market segmentation, based on type, includes Industrial Freeze Dryers, Laboratory Freeze Dryers and General Purpose Freeze Dryers. The Industrial Freeze Dryers segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Food processing and dairy industries can preserve items that are extremely sensitive and cannot be dried via evaporation, due to industrial freeze dryers. These enormous devices can hold vast amounts of food to preserve to create dry items with reliable quality. In the laboratory, the freeze drying process is crucial for stabilizing, storing, or lengthening the shelf life of delicate biological materials. To remove water from sensitive biological products without affecting their chemical structure, laboratory freeze drying is utilized. This enables simple preservation and later reconstitution by the addition of water or solvents. Hence, rising applications of Industrial Freeze Dryers for Freeze Drying type positively impacts the market growth.


Freeze Drying Equipment Application Insights


The  Freeze Drying Equipment market data has been bifurcated by application into Biotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Food Processing, Surgical Procedures and Others. The Food Processing segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. The food can maintain its original size and shape during the freeze drying process with little cell damage. As a result, shrinkage is reduced or completely avoided, allowing the food to be maintained in almost perfect condition for an extended time, which will further drive the product demand in food processing applications.


Additionally, the growth of surgical procedures is majorly driven by the growth in the geriatric population, the rising prevalence of cancer, and the rise in incidences of chronic diseases. Due to the use of freeze-dried platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in surgical procedures, which maintains PRP's efficacy and bioactivity for a longer period of time, the number of surgical procedures will increase, which will fuel demand for freeze drying equipment..


Freeze Drying Equipment Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America Freeze Drying Equipment market accounted for USD 2.079 billion in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR growth during the study period.
