Europe drum dehydrator market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of drum dehydrator based on technology and country is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the technology segment, the centrifugation sub-segment is estimated to reach a market share of 67.0% in 2023.

“Technological Advancement to Curve the Demand Pool”

Technology plays a crucial part in any field, especially in terms of modern machinery. Integration of advancing technology upgrades the performance of the machinery and saves fuel and additional costs for the overall operation. Similarly, in drum dehydrator, technology and customization play a major role in redefining the growth trajectory of the market.

Furthermore, a sophisticated and cutting-edge heating system based on the mixing chamber principle in conjunction with cutting-edge insulation ensures the best possible use of the energies used, which not only upgrades performance but also saves on fuel. The technology advancements bolster the market's growth over the forecast period.

“High Cost of Machinery to Restrain the Market’s Growth”

With the requirement of precise machining, changing the drum surface is expensive. Due to direct contact with the hot drum surface, there is a chance of scorching the product, which could result in cooked flavor and discoloration. Due to the possibility of the drum surface pitting, it cannot process salty or other corrosive materials. Such factors hamper the market's growth.

Country-wise Insights

What are the factors driving the market’s growth across Germany?

Germany has a high demand for the market Germany accounts for 25.0% of the market share in 2023. The growing waste management and investment in R&D to develop renewable energy sources to meet the energy demand across the country. Further, the use of biomass as a fuel is gaining traction across Germany. The use of renewable raw materials is receiving more attention. Also, agricultural wastes like waste from the wood industry, palm or straw fibers, roadside maintenance, landscaping are used as fuel and others.

All materials share one thing in common, despite the fact that biomass has a very heterogeneous composition: in most cases, water content needs to be significantly decreased before materials can be used for energy. Hence, the drum dehydrator plays a crucial role in the process of drying, which, in turn, propel the market's growth across the country during the forecast period.

Why is the France drum dehydrator market expected to be highly lucrative?

The UK has a prominent market for the market's growth. Further, growing demand for drum dehydrator across the starch and starch-based industry to augment the market's growth. A carbohydrate derived from agricultural raw materials called starch is used in countless everyday food and non-food products. In the human diet, it is the most significant carbohydrate.

The starch industry extracts and purifies starches from roots, tubers, and seeds, via washing, wet grinding, sieving, drying, and others. Starch is majorly produced from tapioca, corn, wheat, and potato, among others.

The starch industry offers a wide variety of goods to its customers, including natural and liquid and solid sweeteners modified starches, oils, proteins, and fibers. Papermaking is the largest industrial use of starch, after the food and feed industry. Drum dehydrator are highly suitable to dry modified or native starch and particular co-products of starch production.

Why are non-consistent solids (40-60%) leading the drum dehydrator market?

Non-consistent Solid (40-60%) has a high market share of 44.0% in 2023 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2023-2033 and reach a valuation of US$ 134.6 million in 2033 from US$ 96.5 million in 2023.

The growth is attributed to the fact that during food processing completely drying out food may result in a change in taste or loss of nutrition from it. Hence, during the drum dehydration, a certain amount of moisture is only dried out. Non-Consistent Solids fall under the standard category, due to which it accounts for the major share of the market.

Which is end-use sector gaining traction over the forecast period?

The food processing industry is expected to witness high demand in the forthcoming decades as a result of the rapidly growing population, rising disposable incomes, and shift in consumption habits, particularly in emerging economies across Europe.

In the past few years, it is witnessed that there is continuous growth in the demand for animal protein, including dairy, fish, and livestock, among others.

To meet the rising demand for feed and to maintain the circular economy, the co-products of biofuel, sugar, starch, beer, and fruit, among other industries will continue to achieve prominence. Hence, in order to, conserve such materials drying is an effective and crucial technological step, thus, driving the demand for the drum dehydrator market.
