Increasing focus on industrial drying as an imperative for sustenance of product quality is emerging as a bedrock for growth of contact and convective dryers market, finds the FMI study. Industrial drying remains one among the most-demanding unit operations, and this demand continues to firm up as end user industries navigate toward achieving ‘operational efficiency’.

According to the report, the role of contact and convective dryers in form of intermittent drying equipment is likely to be prominent in 2022 and beyond, as they address the fundamental drying requirements before the products go upstream for complex drying processes. However, limited installation rate coupled with low replacement ratio are two of the key factors expected to pose significant challenges for manufacturers of contact and convective dryers.

Fast-Paced Growth of Processing Verticals Unlocking Gains in Developing Economies

The FMI study opines that sky-rocketing growth of processing industries in fast-growing economies, such as South Asia and East Asia, are signalling the emergence of new opportunities for the market players to leverage. High adoption of contact and convective dryers to effectively meet the drying requirements, especially for powders, remains one of the key factors pushing their demand in industrial processing streams. Leading market players are redesigning their expansion strategies with a stronger orientation toward these regions, so that they firmly establish themselves in this ‘already-opportunistic’ markets and reap large profits.

According to the study, sales of contact dryers will continue to outpace the sales of convective dryers, with global sales estimated to reach ~ 1,768 units in 2022. While higher energy efficiency continues to be the biggest selling point of contact dryers, reduced environmental footprint and low costs are two more factors underpinning their visibility. In addition, contact dryers possess unmatched ability in terms of accumulation and retention of heat, which further warrants its viability amidst the end-user marketplace.
