Market Overview:

The global air knife market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for air knives in food processing and packaging, industrial application, electronics, and other applications. In terms of type, the aluminum air knife segment is expected to lead the global market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its properties such as corrosion resistance and lightweight. In terms of region, North America is expected to lead the global market during the forecast period followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.

Global Air Knife Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Air Knife is a tool that uses compressed air to create a high-velocity jet of air. It is often used in industrial applications to blow away debris or cut materials.

Aluminum Air Knife:

Aluminum air knife is a device used to cut the gas/air mixture in its purest form. It works on the basic principle of centrifugal force which is generated by spinning an impeller. The faster the impeller goes, more pressure it generates and this pressure acts on any impurities present in gas or liquid. This purification process can be applied to gases as well as liquids.

Stainless Steel Air Knife:

Stainless steel air knife is used to reduce the size of particles in gas or vapor. It works by creating a stream of high velocity stainless steel pellets which are directed into the liquid to be extracted. The stainless steel pellets are made from highly durable and corrosion-resistant material, thus they can withstand harsh conditions and remain effective even after continuous use.

Application Insights:

The food processing and packaging application segment led the global air knife market in 2017. The segment is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to rising demand for packaged foods, such as ready-to-eat meals, frozen meals, snacks and desserts. Air knives are used in this industry for cutting through tough materials like plastic bags and films without causing any damage to them. They are also used for cutting through bones or cartons with ease while ensuring efficient results every time.

Air knives can be customized according to specific requirements of customers while offering flexibility on operating parameters such as speed, force & pressure settings etc.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global air knife market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increasing demand for food processing and packaging machinery, coupled with rising industrial automation across various end-use industries. Moreover, growing concerns regarding food safety and contamination have led to an increase in demand for efficient equipment that can minimize cross-contamination while maintaining high hygiene standards in commercial kitchens.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to emerge as the fastest-growing regional market from 2018 to 2030 owing its rapid development of manufacturing facilities by key players such as Deere & Company; New Holland Agriculture LLC; CNH Industrial Naveira S/A; Kubota Corporation; Maschinenfabrik Bernard Krone GmbH & Co.; Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd.; Komatsu Ltd.; and Doosan Infracore Pte Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Air Knife in the automotive and aerospace industries for removing excess material and debris from products.
  • Growing popularity of Air Knife in food processing industry for slicing, dicing, and chopping of food items.
  • Rising demand from metalworking industry for precision cutting of metals using air knives.
  • Increasing use of air knives in textile industry to cut fabric quickly and easily without damaging it.
