Market Overview:

The global counterflow dryers market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for processed food and beverages, rising awareness about hygiene and sanitation, and growing investments in food processing infrastructure across the globe. Based on type, the global counterflow dryers market is segmented into batch dryer and continuous dryer. The batch dryer segment is expected to account for a larger share of the market in 2018 owing to its low initial investment cost as compared to other types of drying equipment. However, with technological advancements being made in continuous drying systems, this segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Based on application, the global counterflow dryers market is divided into grain processing, feed production, mineral processing (including salt), and other applications (including pet food).

Global Counterflow Dryers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Counterflow dryers are a type of industrial dryer used to remove water or other liquids from a material. They work by passing the wet material through a chamber with hot air, which evaporates the liquid and dries the material. This type of dryer is important because it can be used to quickly and efficiently remove moisture from many different types of materials, making them ready for further processing or use.

Batch Dryer:

Batch dryers are used to reduce the moisture content in a feed stream. It is mainly used for drying solids, liquid or gaseous streams. Batch dryers can be of various types including belt, screen and fluidized bed type among others. The most commonly used batch dryer is the fluidized bed type which has high thermal efficiency and low operating cost owing to its design and operation.

Continuous Dryer:

Continuous dryers are used in counterflow dryers to provide a source of heated air. They can be used with single or multiple stage counterflows and are available in various sizes ranging from 3/4 HP to 10 HP. Continuous dryers have the ability to heat up the air that is passed through them, thereby eliminating moisture from it.

Application Insights:

The grain dryer segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the growing demand for counterflow dryers in grain processing plants, which are widely used across various industries including agriculture and food processing.

Feed is another important application segment that was valued at USD 281.5 million in 2017 owing to its increasing utilization across numerous sectors including animal feed manufacturing, dairy farming and fish farming among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising demand for food & beverages, increasing pharmaceuticals production, and rapid industrialization. China is one of the largest producers of grain across the globe owing to favorable weather conditions and land availability.

Europe accounted for a significant share in terms of volume as well as revenue in 2017 due to high demand from end-use industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, feed manufacturing companies etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for quality and hygiene in food processing industry
  • Rising need for energy-efficient drying technologies
  • Growing popularity of counterflow dryers among small and medium-sized businesses
  • Proliferation of automated process controls in dryer systems
  • Advances in thermal engineering that improve the performance of counterflow dryers
