Pharmaceutical Application of Freeze Drying Equipment Anticipated to Grow at a CAGR of 11.0%, Aiding in Preservation of Vital Biologicals like Enzymes and Proteins

The “Freeze Drying Equipment Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Product (Bench Top Freeze Dryers, Laboratory Freeze Dryers), By Application, By Region, And Segment Forecasts, 2023 – 2030” report has been added to’s offering.

DUBLIN, Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The global freeze drying equipment market is poised for remarkable growth, with a projected market size of USD 3.50 billion by 2030, reflecting a robust CAGR of 9.1% from 2023 to 2030.

The surge in demand for food preservation and substantial investments in infrastructure development are set to be key drivers of market expansion in the coming years.

Consumer concerns regarding the quality of food and beverages have spurred the adoption of cold storage solutions across various industries. This increasing demand for food preservation equipment is expected to fuel the market for freeze drying equipment. Freeze drying, using lyophilization technology, allows for the preservation of a wide range of food items, including fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, herbs, ice cream, and coffee, among others. Freeze-dried foods can be easily reconstituted by adding water without the need for refrigeration or chemical preservatives, making them highly desirable in the food processing industry.

The pharmaceutical sector also extensively utilizes freeze dryers to cool a variety of products. This process ensures the preservation of the physical structure of sensitive pharmaceuticals and delicate biological products while drying them at moderate temperatures. These processed materials are critical for the production of emergency antibodies and vaccines, further boosting market demand.

The military and defense sectors are expected to make significant use of freeze-drying technology. Traditional methods of treating injured individuals with refrigerated blood products during emergencies have been time-consuming. However, freeze-dried plasma can now be used to treat injured individuals quickly before evacuation, driving market growth in this segment.
