The global jet mill market size is expected to reach $185.7 million in 2027 from $138.7 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2020 to 2027. A jet mill or jet pulverizer can grind average particle size between 1 and 10 micron. Jet milling is the process of reducing primary particle size by utilizing high pressure and compressed air to generate high velocity collision between particles. Collision between particles reduce particle size significantly. Jet mills are widely used for friable or brittle materials such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, ceramics, polymers, and others.
Rapid growth in cosmetics and lifestyle industry is expected to surge demand for jet mills. In current scenario, the cosmetics industry is significantly growing, owing to rise in demand for different makeup and healthcare products. Sanitary advantages of milling in jet mills make them a viable choice for applications in the cosmetics industry. Thus, growth in demand from the cosmetics industry is expected to drive growth of the jet mill market. Moreover, growth in demand from the pharmaceutical industry is one of the major drivers for the jet mill market. Jet mills are often adopted for manufacturing of pharmaceutical drugs and organic & inorganic pigments. Micronizing of drugs through jet mills offer better dissolving capacity in human body, which increases potency of drugs and reduction in dosages. Thus, growth in demand from the pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive growth of jet mill market.
However, lower efficiencies offered by jet mills is a major restraining factor for the jet mill market. Jet mills require high energy for generation of air, which can be uneconomical for small scale users. This hinders growth of the jet mills market. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in halt of operations in industries, owing to prolonged lockdown in 2020. This has not only affected production of jet mills but also reduced their demand from end-user markets, which hampered growth of the jet mill market in 2020.
On the contrary, technological developments in industrial grade jet mills and increase in awareness regarding jet mills is expected to create opportunities for growth of the jet mill industry. Rise in expenditure on R&D facilities for development of jet mill products is expected to surge the market growth during the forecast period.

The global jet mill market has a significant scope in developing countries of Asia-Pacific. Rise in demand for jet mills from growing pharmaceutical, chemical, food & beverages, and other industries is expected to create future growth opportunities for the jet mill market in the region.
Moreover, particle size reduction of moisture sensitive materials such as abrasives, pigments, and various chemicals is a difficult task. However, utilization of jet mills can assist in reducing the size of these materials as it adopts use of compressed air in the milling environment, which eradicates entrance of moisture into the material. In addition, milling process is carried out in closed environments, which further reduces contamination of materials in the mill. This has opened new opportunities for pharmaceutical and chemical industries to produce more efficient drugs.
Many competitors in the jet mill market adopted product development as their key developmental strategy to expand their product portfolio. For instance, in January 2015, Micro-Macinazione S.A. based in Italy, announced a new investment in research of new technology at the Drug, Chemical & Associated Technologies Association (DCAT) in the U.S. Micro-Macinazione announced investment of around $1.09 million for development of a new research & development center for manufacturing new and flexible techniques for micronizing particles.
