The global UHT processing market was valued at $3.0 billion in 2020, and is projected reach $5.7 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2021 to 2030. The indirect heating segment led in terms of UHT processing market share in 2020, and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period.

Ultrahigh temperature (UHT) processing involves heating of food & beverages to temperatures close to 140°C for 2–5 seconds, followed by rapid cool down of the product. The exposure to such high temperatures inhibits the growth of majority of bacteria and microorganisms in the food & beverages, while the small amount of remaining bacteria is rendered useless. This results in complete sterilization of the product, thus making it shelf stable for many months, even without the use of refrigerators. UHT machines can use direct or indirect heating to raise the temperature of the product, both of which uses steam as the primary heating element. UHT is most commonly used for sterilization of milk, but it can also be used for the sterilization of cream, yogurt, honey, soup, stew, wine, tomato paste, and juices.

UHT Processing Market

UHT processing market is not only limited to dairy and dairy products but can also be used for the processing of other food items such as soups, fruit juices, dairy alternatives, honey, wine, and soups. The use of UHT processing in the production of these food items is aiding market diversification. Many organic food products such as fruit juices, pulps, and honey consists of bacteria and microorganisms in their raw form.

Consuming these products raw can lead to health problems, which can be prevented by treating these foods and beverages. Similarly, dairy alternatives, including milk form soy, almonds, oats, rice, and products made from them such as dairy-free cheese and ice creams require processing, for which UHT proves to be effective. In addition, UHT can increase the life of products such as canned soups, broths, stews, and wines. Thus, UHT is now being extensively used for the treatment of such products. Hence, diversification of application of UHT technique is anticipated to propel the UHT processing market growth.

Analyst Review

The past couple of decades has seen a huge adoption of UHT technology for sterilization of milk, dairy products, dairy alternatives, soups, sauces, and juices. This is attributed to the fact that the UHT process increases the shelf life of food products to several months without refrigeration. In addition, it completely eliminates any kind of microorganism or bacteria present in the food, which makes the food completely safe for consumption.

Increase has been witnessed in the demand for packaged foods and beverages that have a long shelf life, as consumers are leading fast paced lives and such products further adds convenience to their busy lives. In addition, consumers are now focused on the health aspects of food, demanding longer shelf life of products with freshness intact. UHT serves both of these purposes, as it eliminates any sort of bacteria or microorganism present in foods & beverages, thus making them safe for consumption while also increasing the shelf life.

The CXOs further added that rapid developments in machine technologies have significantly impacted the growth of the UHT market. In addition, automation plays a key role in the machinery in modern times, and it has been implemented vigorously in UHT machinery. Furthermore, integration of artificial intelligence (AI) expedites operation processes. Thus, automation coupled with AI technology makes the machines self-sufficient, precise, and highly time saving, which add extensive benefits for engaged stakeholders.
