Dairy Processing Equipment Market Analysis

Dairy processing equipment market from homogenizers segment exceeded USD 1.45 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. Homogenization is an industrial process that breaks down fat globules into smaller globules, reducing the tendency of the globules to grow together and aggregate.  It is used to finely disperse the fat globules in the milk and reduce creaming. This process provides uniform composition, consistency, and palatability without the addition or removal of ingredients. Moreover, it provides whiter appearance, richer flavour, more uniform viscosity to milk which improves the quality and taste of final product.

The homogenization prevents the cream layer from peeling off, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting product. As it uses pressure instead of heat, valuable nutrients and taste are retained. They ensure effective, efficient, safe and rapid application, while at the same time stabilizing the chemical structure of the final product. Increasing adoption of high-pressure homogenizer, Low pressure-rotary type homogenizers, Sonic vibrators etc. coupled with the advent of electromechanical technology in the dairy industry has increased the demand for milk homogenizers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the dairy processing equipment market negatively. Halt in the operations of manufacturing plants and decline in demand for consumer products such as cheese, butter, yogurt, milk powder during lockdown has mainly affected the market demand. However, the recommencement of business operations is expected to boost the sales in the upcoming years.
