Freeze-drying, also known as lyophilization or cryodesiccation, is a low temperature dehydration process that involves freezing the product, lowering pressure, then removing the ice by sublimation. Laboratory freeze-drying equipment, benchtop freeze-dryers, mobile freeze-dryers, industrial freeze-dryers, and general purpose-freeze dryers are some of the types of freeze-drying equipment.

Freeze-drying equipment help to maintain various parameters such as physical state, aroma, and chemical properties. Major application areas of freeze-drying equipment are food preservation, packaging, pharmaceuticals, surgical procedures, and biotechnology.

Statistics:

The global freeze-drying equipment market is estimated to account for US$ 68,817.1 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.

Global Freeze-drying Equipment Market: Drivers

Significant growth in the pharmaceutical sector is expected to propel growth of the global freeze-drying equipment market over the forecast period. For instance, according to The European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations’ Key Data 2019, the pharmaceutical sector in Europe was valued at US$ 139, 287 million in 2000, which increased to US$ 284, 028 million (est.) in 2018. 

Moreover, significant investment in development of biologics is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in April 2020, Pulmobiotics S.L., a Spain-based pre-clinical life sciences company using synthetic biology to develop new treatments and vaccines, raised US$ 2.17 million.

Statistics:

North America held dominant position in the global freeze-drying equipment market in 2019, accounting for 34.1% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively
