The non-thermal processing market is estimated to be valued at USD 818.6 Million in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 1,224.2 Million at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2017 to 2022. Growth of the convenience foods sector, which includes products such as frozen foods and ready-to-eat foods, has increased the demand for non-thermal processing as these technologies reduce the processing time and increase the production capacity to meet the growing market demand. Demand for non-thermal processing, particularly meat processing, has witnessed an increase in European and North American countries due to significant growth in the processed meat products industry. The non-thermal processing market is also witnessing growth in demand due to the rise in food safety concerns, growth in demand for energy-efficient technology, and the requirement for process optimization to achieve maximum yield.
The key market players adopted strategies such as expansions, new product & technology launches, acquisitions, agreements, collaborations, and partnerships to meet the growing demand for non-thermal processing.
Major players such as Bosch (Germany), Bühler (Switzerland), Hiperbaric España (Spain), Nordion (Canada), and Avure Technologies (US), collectively accounted for a majority of the global non-thermal processing market. Other players in the market include Emerson (US), CHIC FresherTech (US), Elea Technology (Germany), Pulsemaster (Netherlands), Gray*Star (US), Dukane (US), and Symbios Technologies (US).
