Freeze Drying Equipment: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) October 7, 2010
Freeze drying technology/process, also known as lyophilization is considered as the most natural means of food preservation, enhancing food life and preventing it from degradation. Lyophilization has taken major technological strides in recent years, and is actively used due to its innovative designs, affordability, accuracy, and computer/instrument control automation. The process is effectively used for the preservation of floral products, whole animals, microbial cultures, foods, drugs, and even for recovery of items damaged by water during fire and floods. Freeze-drying is a low temperature process and is often preferred over high temperature drying, which could lead to degradation and spoilage. Freeze-drying process is also favored as it is environment friendly, making use of nitrogen as a refrigerant in place of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
The demand for lyophilization is in line with the growth of biotechnology. The market for lyophilized products is expected to grow with the increasing demand for injectable solutions and new biological product introductions in the coming years. With cutting-edge advancements rapidly becoming the norm, lyophilization process would include in-process monitoring, decreased cycle times, increased automation, and processing enhancements. Demand for lyophilization is also high in the field of biopharmaceuticals. Global outlook for the freeze drying technology appears promising with more than 50% drugs manufactured, requiring to be lyophilized. Also, the need for cost-effectiveness, quick stabilization and longer and improved product stability are predicted to boost growth for the technology. The technology itself is forecast to undergo developments extending both applications and performance standards.
