Global Freeze-drying Equipment Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization has declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand for Equipments and Instruments, and by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nation wide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others faced problems regarding transportation of surgical and freeze-drying equipments from one place to another.
In 2020, as mentioned in the official website of Biopharma Process Systems Ltd, a freeze-drying and bioprocessing supplier and provider, stated that focus of the scientific world, from research and development (R&D) to full scale manufacture, shifted toward the discovery and implementation of solutions to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID 19 has placed a greater emphasis on the process of freeze-drying, demand for the freeze-dryer increased from the pharmaceutical companies due to the pandemic.

Global Freeze-drying Equipment Market: Key Players
Cuddon Engineering Ltd., Freezedry Specialties, Inc., GEA Group, IMA Life The Netherlands B.V., Labconco Corporation, SP Industries, Inc., Telstar, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., MechaTech Systems Ltd., Millrock Technology Inc., Zirbus Technology GmbH, Biopharma Process Systems Ltd., LTE Scientific Ltd., Martin Christ GmbH, Shanghai Tofflon Science and Technology Co., Ltd., OPERON, and MAQUINARIA INDUSTRIAL DARA, SL and other prominent players.
Definition: Freeze- drying is a process of dehydrating of subtances at low temperatures. Materials are kept at a negative temperature during the procedure. As a result, freeze drying has less impact on the original features of the product that preserves the biological activity, vitamins, flavor, taste, and appearance of the product in food industries.
