Freeze Drying Market Will Generate Booming Growth Opportunities to 2032

According to Future Market Insights’ most recent industry report, the global Freeze Drying Market was valued at approximately US$ 1.0 Bn in 2021 and is expected to rise at a CAGR close to 8.5% over the forecast period, with an anticipated worth of around US$ 2.5 Bn in 2032.

Freeze drying often referred to as lyophilization, is a method that uses low pressure and sublimation to remove water from a material in the form of ice. This technology has numerous applications in the manufacture of high-quality food and pharmaceuticals.

Despite its popularity, substantial research on freeze-drying is continually being carried out in order to enhance the process variables for specific applications, enhance product features through pre-treatments, and minimize energy costs and process time.

The major goal of the freeze-drying procedure is to ensure consistent product quality not just within a batch but also between batches. As a result, during freeze-drying, product temperature becomes a crucial product quality aspect. When the product has the same thermal history throughout the batch, from batch to batch, as well as throughout lab scale, pilot scale, and production scale dryers, consistent product quality is ensured.

The market has grown as a result of factors like the rapidly expanding pharmaceutical and food processing industries. The market is projected to grow as consumers become more aware of the product’s benefits, such as improved desiccant drying and air-drying efficiency.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • Dryers are the leading segment as a product and hold approximately 67.7% market share in 2021, owing to the customer preference for nutrition from whole foods being supported by the fact that freeze-drying retains nutritional content better than other drying techniques.
  • Industrial-scale of operations holds a market share of around 40.6% in 2021. Because of the preservation of quality, freeze-drying is thought to be the best method for dehydrating food on an industrial scale.
  • Biopharmaceutical companies are the top distribution channel in the worldwide freeze drying market, and this trend is anticipated to continue with a projected CAGR of 9.7% over the forecasted years.
  • North America is considered as the leading region with a value share of 34.8% in 2021, owing to the presence of established biopharmaceutical companies in the region.

“Shifting consumer values, the rapid expansion of the pharmaceutical and food processing industries, and rising consumption of preserved foods are driving the global freeze drying market,” says an analyst of Future Market Insights.
