Key Market Trends

Food & Beverage Industry to dominate the Market

  • In the North American countries, it is essential for the food & beverage industry to maintain the hygiene standards, set by concerned federal agencies at all times so that the products are suitable for consumption. 
  • In food and beverage processing plants, the use of water starts with conditioning of raw materials such as soaking, blanching, cleaning, and chilling. The usage of water continues with sanitizing, cooling, power and process heating, steam generation for sterilization, and finally in direct use.
  • Maintenance of sanitary conditions during food and beverage processing has always been a concern while manufacturing the products. Traditionally, disinfection through chlorination has been the quickest means of disinfecting wastewater prior to its usage in processing.
  • With the growing regulations on usage of chlorine in food and beverage processing, usage of advanced water treatment processes such as membrane technologies have been incorporated.
  • The general purpose water includes water which is used in washing and sanitizing raw materials, plant facility, processing equipment, and ancillary equipment. Process water represent water used for cooking or added directly to the product.
  • During the production of beverages, treatment to achieve taste objectives is especially important. Various membrane technologies like reverse osmosis and nano-filtration find prominent usage to achieve the complex requirements posed by the food and beverage industry.
  • Owing tot he above-mentioned factors, food & beverage industry is expected to dominate the market studied during the forecast period.
