Global Hopper Dryers Market Expected to Reach $576.2 Million by 2025


quote The various features of hopper dryers such as robustness, easy to operate, and low maintenance fuel the growth of the global hopper dryers market. In addition, practically every polymer except polyolefin, shows some kind of divergence, and hence is capable to absorb a fixed capacity of moisture from the vicinity. Therefore, such breeds of polymers necessitates appropriate drying prior to molding them to get molded part of huge surface finish and quality, thereby positively influencing the growth of the hopper dryer market. However, high initial cost of hopper dryers is expected to hamper the growth of the industry. On the contrary, technological improvements such as combining wireless technology in hopper dryers, is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of hopper dryers industry. quote

According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled,"Hopper dryers Market: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025,"the global hopper dryers market size was $421.3 million in 2017, and is expected to reach $576.2 million in 2025, growing at a CAGR of 3.9%. The injection molding machine segment accounted for more than half of the hopper dryer market share in 2017, and is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

By using hopper dryers to dry plastics and other polymers, moisture from these materials can be eradicated straight at the throat of the machine. The moisture in the plastic resins whether hygroscopic or non-hygroscopic disturbs the quality and surface finish of the molded parts and products. Hence, hopper dryer serves as an energy efficient and ideal solution for drying plastic materials. The growth of the global hopper dryers market is driven by surge in demand for plastic processing machinery such as injection molding machine across of the world. In addition, the market for injection molding machine is mainly compelled by the escalating demand for injection-molded parts from various end-use industries such as the automotive, packaging, consumer goods, and others. Since, hopper dryers are installed on injection molding machine, it is estimated to positively influence the growth of the hopper dryer industry.

Hopper dryer requires less amount of time to dry thermoplastics and other plastic materials as compared to conventional dryers. For instance, DH series drying hoppers offered by Conair saves time, energy, and money by delivering consistent and efficient drying. In addition, hopper dryer is used for drying straight at the throat of machine thereby eradicating the risk of contamination and re-absorption of moisture during the time of transporting from a central drying position to the machine hopper. Nearly every polymer other than polyolefin, displays some sort of polarity and hence, can absorb a definite quantity of moisture from the surrounding. Hence, such kinds of polymers require proper drying before molding them to get end component of great surface finish and quality, thereby driving the growth of the hopper dryer market.

Based on the application, the injection molding machine segment is expected to account for the largest share in the global market during the forecast period as hopper dryers installed on injection molding machine are capable to produce large quantity of molded parts and products. Based on the product type segment, more than 500 KG segment is expected to hold maximum share, growing at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to large scale industries such as automotive and others opting for bigger plastic processing machinery to dry plastics using hopper dryers of capacity greater than 500 KG.

Key Findings of the Hopper dryers Market:

  • Based on product type, the less than 100 KG segment is projected to grow at a highest CAGR during the hopper dryer market forecast period.
  • LAMEA is anticipated to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period.
  • In application segment, the injection molding machine generated the highest revenue in 2017, and is estimated to grow at a substantial rate.
  • In Asia-Pacific, China accounted for the largest market share in 2017.

The key players profiled in Hopper dryers Market report include ACS Group, Bry-Air, Conair, Dri-Air Industries Inc., Kenplas Industry Ltd., Motan Colortronic, Novatec, Inc., Shini Plastics Technologies Inc., Summit Systems, and Yann Bang.
