A paper drying system is the process of applying heat to the sheet in a can or cylinder of a series of steam-heated dryers. Woven dryer felt is used to hold the film against can to increase heat transfer and reduce film shrinkage. A feed conveyor transports the damp material into the rotary drier. After that, the material rotates in drum while being exposed to the flow of hot air. After drying, the material leaves the dryer through the knock out box. Based on the customer's chosen range, the moisture level of the dried material may be calculated. Paper dryers are used to produce a surface for creping by using hot air systems. Sheet drying and heat transfer are completely influenced by the thickness and diameter of the paper drying shell.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis


In the paper industry, the drying process serves two purposes, such as elimination of any residual water in the web that cannot be eliminated by pressing or vacuum, and usage of hydrogen to bond the fibers. The paper drying systems supply steam to each dryer in the machine at the required pressure, ensuring effective removal of condensed water from the dryer. Paper drying systems helps to achieve the proper dryer surface temperature while using the minimum amount of steam and putting the least amount of energy into the machine.

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic ceased the production of various products in the paper drying systems industry, which is attributed to the lockdown in countries worldwide. This has hampered the growth of paper drying systems market from the last few months and is likely to continue during 2022.
  • COVID-19 affected the sales of paper drying systems in the first quarter of 2021 and is anticipated to have a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
  • The major demand for paper drying systems was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries, such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and South America, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for dryers.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Paper drying systems manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce their expenses. On the contrary, few players adopted employee lay-offs to sustain themselves during the COVID-19 health crisis.
  • Paper drying systems manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distance, and ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce. 

Top Impacting Factors

The growth of the paper & pulp manufacturing industry, where demand for smoother and glossy paper materials is increasing, and the development of innovative infrared dryer technology for quick coating immobilization, are the primary factors driving the growth of the global paper drying systems market. Furthermore, increase in consumerism, literacy rates, and environmental concerns are some of the major causes behind increased paper consumption and paper drying systems to improve paper quality. 

Furthermore, the paper-making process requires a dewatering process in which a dilute pulp solution is employed. Various companies are working to improve paper quality and manufacturing capacity with less energy.

  • In August 2020, Kadant Solutions launched M-Clean Ultra System. When an M-clean system starts its fabric cleaning process, the washing cabinet opens, and the cleaning head departs the parking position. The head returns to the parking position, which is within the washing cabinet, after which the cabinet shuts around the head with an air cylinder action and the washing function begins. It is widely acknowledged as the industry’s standard dryer fabric cleaning equipment. 
  • In January 2021, Ircon-Solaronics supplied GemDryer to Greenpaper, Mexico. The GemDryer has a gas infrared drying system with high drying capacity and high performance Gem12E. The purpose of conversion was to enhance drying capacity while at same time adapting drying to the new environment. It meets the customer expectations in terms of high-power density, ease of maintenance, and low operating costs. 
  • Similarly, in December 2021, ANDRITZ supplied two paper tissue machines to Lian sheng Pulp and Paper in Fujian, China. The two PrimeLineTMW 2000 Crescent Former tissue machines have a working width of 5.65 m and a design speed of 2,000 m / min. Both feature a huge suction press and prime dry steel Yankee.
