The Global Market for Powder Processing Equipment is segmented based on Technology and End Use. On the basis of technology, the global powder processing equipment market is segmented into mixing and blending, drying and cooling, sintering, compaction/punches and dies, and others. The mixing and blending segment held the largest market share in 2018. The mixers and blenders are bulk processing equipment designed to mix or blend heterogeneous materials to form a homogeneous end-product. Such equipment are used in processing and manufacturing facilities to mix foods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, household products, plastics, and minerals. The mixing equipment offer numerous advantages such as minimal damage to the powder particles, ease of discharge with low amount of residue, swift mixing with low energy consumption, and ease of cleaning by using multiple products. Growth of food & beverage and pharmaceutical industry is driving the demand for mixing and blending powder processing equipment.
On the basis of End Use, the global powder processing equipment market is segmented into chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food & beverage, material, metal, and others. The food & beverage segment held the largest market share in 2018. The powder processing equipment used in applications in food & beverage industry, including production and processing of cocoa, collagen peptides, dairy, flavors, confectionaries, food colorants, gelatin, infant formula, insects, instant soup, meat proteins, and others. Cocoa processing primarily uses the mixing equipment to enable effective and gentle mixing of chocolate and cocoa powder with other ingredients such as sugar, vitamins, minerals, and sodium ascorbate while the dairy application uses the powder processing equipment in a number of sanitary finishes suitable for mixing preparations, such as reconstructed milk, yogurt mixes, and ice cream mixes. Mixing, blending, compacting, drying, and cooling equipment are the types of powder processing equipment mostly used in the food & beverage industry.
