Key Market Trends

Homogenizers Dominates the Market

Homogenizers are projected to play key role in the processing of dairy based products. It is a mechanical process used to reduce the size of the fat globules in the milk. The key players operating in the market studied are launching innovative homogenizers owing to its higher demand for varied application. In September 2017, GEA launched the GEA Ariete Homogenizer 5400, the world’s most powerful homogenizer. The homogenizer consist of 5 pistons that can process 80,000 liters of milk per hour at 120 bar, providing a quarter more power compared to other machines. Therefore, the continuous innovation in the sector drives the market studied.

Dairy Processing Equipment Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific is the Fastest as well as the Largest Market

Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share of the market studied owing to numerous dairy processing plants in the region as well as the high production of milk, especially from India, China, and Pakistan. In the region, dairy products are touted as a convenient and relatively cheap source of protein and this has increased their availability, accessibility, and wider geographic penetration. The traditional dairy-based drinks still hold dominance in the region necessitating the increased utility of plate heat exchangers, the popularity of indulgent and viscous dairy products have also increased the demands for tubular heat exchangers. Moreover, the strong demand for dairy-based powders for incorporation in foods for special dietary purposes, particularly in the markets of Thailand, China, and Singapore are driving the growth of highly efficient drying and dehydration systems.

Competitive Landscape

The global market of dairy processing equipment faces a strong challenge in the form of high operating costs. Companies, such as Tetra Pak, have introduced energy-efficient separators with a reduction of as much as 40% of energy requirement by installing pressure management technology. Tetra Pak also introduced a “Plant Secure” plant management service that addresses the issues of operational expenditures throughout the value chain. The companies are also embarking on acquisitions in order to further refine their expertise within specific equipment types. For instance, Tetra Pak recently acquired Big Drum Engineering GmbH, a leading supplier of filling machines for the ice cream industry.
