$12 Bn Dairy Processing Equipment Markets: Pasteurizers, Homogenizers, Mixers & Blenders, Separators, Evaporators & Dryers, Membrane Filtration - Global Forecast to 2025 -

·4-min read

The "Dairy Processing Equipment Market by Type (Pasteurizers, Homogenizers, Mixers & Blenders, Separators, Evaporators & Dryers, Membrane Filtration Equipment), Operation (Automatic and Semi-Automatic), Application, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Dairy Processing Equipment Market Size Estimated at USD 9.2 Billion in 2020 and is Projected to Grow at a CAGR of 5.4% to Reach USD 12.0 Billion by 2025

Rising production and consumption of milk and other dairy products along with increased automation in dairy product manufacturing are projected to drive the dairy processing equipment market

The market has a promising growth potential due to several factors, including the rising production and consumption of milk and other dairy products along with increased automation in dairy product manufacturing. In order to prepare butter, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and other dairy products various processes have been developed and implemented by the dairy industry. These processes have been designed to utilize various properties of milk to manufacture products with different tastes and nutritional profiles. These processes include pasteurization, homogenization, filtration, and separation.

With technological advancements in the dairy sector, milk is being largely processed to manufacture various ingredients and products. Globally, these products and ingredients have varied applications in health and nutrition. These products are primarily used to provide consumers with nutrients that safeguard their health and make up for any deficient nutrients.

The segmentation of the dairy processing equipment market is based on type, operation, application, and region. Based on type, the dairy processing equipment market is segmented into pasteurizers; homogenizers, mixers & blenders; separators; evaporators & dryers; membrane filtration equipment; and others.

The market is further segmented, based on the operation as, automatic, and semi-automatic. The market is further segmented, based on applications such as processed milk, fresh dairy products, butter & buttermilk, cheese, milk powder, and protein ingredients.

Milk Powder: The fastest-growing segment of the dairy processing equipment market, by dairy processing equipment market application

The milk powder segment is growing at a significant rate due to the growing demand for infant formula. Milk powder has several benefits: longer preservation is possible since it has a longer shelf life and it need not be refrigerated, as opposed to fluid milk, which is perishable. Further, it can be reconstituted with water when there is a lack of fresh milk availability. Milk powders serve as functional and nutritional ingredients in most of the food formulations including bakery, confectionery, dairy, recombined milk, meat, nutritional beverages, infant formula, and prepared foods.

Pasteurizers: The largest - growing segment of the dairy processing equipment market, by dairy processing equipment type

The market for pasteurizers is projected to be the largest market by type in the dairy processing market. A pasteurizer is used for enhanced pasteurization, which involves the heating of every particle of the milk or the milk product, at a particular temperature to destroy the pathogens. This is an essential process for the processing of milk and milk products, as it purifies the raw milk, which is contaminated with bacteria and other microorganisms.

Asia Pacific: The largest - growing segment of the dairy processing equipment market, by dairy processing equipment region

The Asia Pacific region is the largest market in the world for dairy processing equipment. The region has been witnessing increased concerns regarding food safety. It is one of the largest producers of milk in the world; hence, dairy processing is becoming imperative to prevent pathogen contamination. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the middle - class population inhabiting the region have been shifting their diet preferences from staple cereals to meat, dairy products, fruits, and vegetables.
