The Dairy Processing Equipment Market is expected to witness significant growth owing to the increase in the utilization of processed milk for manufacturing various products including cheese, butter, and ice-cream. The shift in consumers’ attitude towards healthier and palatable products is driving the industry’s growth. Dairy processing arises all over the world; moreover the structure of the industry differs from country to country. Advancement in technology as well as rising consumption of dairy products is expected to strengthen the overall global dairy processing equipment over the next 10 years till 2025.
Dairy processing equipment helps convert milk to various form of end-use products such as cheese, cream, yogurt and butter. Based on these products several types of techniques are employed including pasteurizers, separators, homogenizers, evaporators & dryers and membrane filtration procedure. These techniques increase productivity by reducing labor cost, lay-off time, production cost and packaging time to meet the overall market demand according to Global Market Insights. Global milk market size was valued at over USD400 billion and may grow notably during the projected timespan owing to its rising demand from end use industry along with consumers shifting preferences towards better diets may propel industry growth. Rise in palatable and healthier milk products consumption owing to changing dietary habits should fuel dairy processing equipment demand. Higher productivity from farms, producing more milk per cow due to specialized feed, well-bred environment and increased emphasis on livestock healthcare will drive dairy processing equipment market. Product market has unlocked new off-farm job opportunities such as collection, transportation, processing and marketing which may have positive influence on industry growth.
Processed products such as cream, cheese, processed milk and protein ingredients dominate the product market due to its longer shelf life, enhanced taste and application scope compared to ordinary raw milk which is susceptible to disease and is perishable. Moreover, processed products are convenient to handle, have high nutritional value and facilitate large scale use which may stimulate dairy processing equipment market growth remarkably. Global milk consumption was sized to be over 300 billion liters and may show remarkable growth. Processed milk products accounted for over 35 percent of the global milk consumption and may grow owing to increased milk products application scope in end use industries including bakery & confectionary, nutraceutical, food & beverage and food processing industries that will drive dairy processing equipment market size. High operating cost owing to increase in energy and power cost may limit industry profitability thereby affecting dairy processing equipment price trend. Pasteurization machinery consumes substantial amounts of energy compared to other processing equipment.
High operating cot restricts small diary producers from installing these equipment systems and may hinder industry growth. However, technological innovations pertaining to aseptic packaging technology to extend non-refrigerated products shelf life is likely to surge dairy processing equipment demand. Other specialized process like ultrafiltration and modern drying processes have increased the chances to recover milk solids which were discharged during older process growth. So it’s safe to say that the change in technology along with higher consumption of dairy products are the major growth handlers in the global dairy processing equipment market. Apart from this, rising demand for milk in cream, cheese, milk powder and yogurt are intensifying the market of global dairy processing equipment. The innovation as well as the expansion in the new dairy products with respect to end-user applications are also fostering the growth of the global dairy processing equipment market. It has been noticed that for the production of milk powders and protein concentrates, the equipment such as membrane filters and evaporators are used which is anticipated to witness significant demand in the coming 10 years from 2015-2025 in the global dairy processing equipment market according to Future Market Insights.
