Higher Operational Cost and Environment Regulations are Likely to Hinder the Growth of Market

Drying is a high-energy process used in the production of a product. It is estimated that the drying process alone uses 10% to 20% of the energy used in the industrial sector when compared to other unit processes.

Furthermore, the majority of flash dryers operate in an indirect mode, requiring hot air for drying, which is generated by the combustion of fossil fuels. The use of fossil fuels adds to the drying process's operational costs. After the drying process is completed, heated air is allowed to escape, which has a negative impact on the environment.

Besides this, Industries are constantly working on lowering energy consumption and requiring energy-efficient equipment. EPA, REACH, and other stringent government regulations in industrialized countries have also imposed various constraints on the process industries. As a result, the greater operating costs associated with drying, as well as environmental regulations governing the process, have limited the market spread of flash dryers.
