Air-dried Food Market Size, and Growth Rate Analysis:

The global Air-dried Food Market size is estimated at USD 19 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach an over of USD 65 billion by the end of the assessment period. The Air-dried Food Market is anticipated to experience moderate growth to record a CAGR of 7.5% throughout the estimated period of 2021-2026.

Air-dried is a process of removing the moisture content of various foods to extend their shelf life and prevent bacterial contamination. Air drying is based on the evaporation principle in which water is removed using hot air. Different techniques such as hot air drying, microwave drying, two-stage air drying, etc. are used in this process. Air-dried foods retain most of their appearance and color compared to original food products. By significantly reducing the moisture content, it helps prevent the growth of bacteria responsible for food spoilage, thus extending the shelf life of food products. Most of the nutritional value of these food products remains intact, and no additional preservatives or dyes are added during the air-drying process. These benefits, as mentioned above, are responsible for the increasing popularity of the product among consumers. Online retail of air-dried food has a bright future and can be further enhanced with advanced logistics and fast delivery times.

Air-dried Food Market Growth Demand Insights:

The growing demand for food products with long shelf life and seasonal products throughout the year supports growth during the prediction period in the food market. Furthermore, during the projected period, the gradual demand increases for food manufacturers to conserve foodstuffs also stimulates demand for dehydrated food. The main threats to the industry lie in contaminating ingredients and raw materials and in damaging environmental goods. Due to several health concerns, consumers are using gluten-free diets to encourage others to make healthier options such as regular dried food products, etc.

The dry foods prepared are dry air-treated food products to minimize the water content, rendering them unfriendly to most microbes, and therefore, increasing food product shelf-life. Bacteria need to produce water and organic material to ensure that the loss of water does not ruin the meat.

In the coming years, the market for air-dried food is expected to increase rapidly altering consumer food habits and the increasing adoption of live eating habits. However, the reduction of food waste has become a significant cause for concern in many Asian Pacific countries, and debris could lead both manufacturers and suppliers to substantial monetary losses. This led the vendors to follow the method of air drying for the preservation of meat, its quality, flavor, freshness, and durability.

In addition, new technological breakthroughs, as well as increased consumer acceptance in a regular diet, are expected to fuel market growth in the years to come. Moreover, the massive demand from customers for air-dried animal feed will probably boost business trends. Also, it is expected that new product lances will increase the industry's growth path in the upwards direction through regional and global participants. The quality of air-dried food does not, however, equate to the quality of the food initially produced. This will, in some ways, impede the growth of the industry.

Drivers and Market Limitations:

The Air-dried Food market size is exponentially expanding owing to the following:

  • Increasing customer adoption.
  • Reduced astringency, greater stability, are provided by the use of air-dried products.

Restraints of Air-dried Food market can be –

  • Strict safety and protection rules.
  • High set up cost.

Opportunities of Air-dried Food market can be

  • Increased penetration of eCommerce through the vertical sector.

Regional Share Analysis:

A significant market share is anticipated globally in North America. The United States is supposed to show an essential role in the air-dried food industry in this area. Increased meat consumption is likely to spur demand for air-dried food products across the country. Europe is also anticipated to be a major contributor to the Air-dried food market, followed by the Asia Pacific. For example, air-dried berries have been shown to offer tremendous health benefits to consumers and have, therefore gained popularity in Europe due to their beneficial characteristics. This, in turn, will stimulate growth in the air-dried food industry over the anticipated period. The UK is anticipated to reap the most benefit during the calculation period among European countries. 

The Asia Pacific region will show promising trends in the air-dried food market throughout the projection period. The workforce in this region is now moving towards ready-to-eat and prepared meals that are easy to make, which will stimulate the growth of the product. 

Europe and North American consumers are aware of the benefits of the products and use them in everyday meals and breakfasts. In 2018, to determine the trends and attitudes of early organic strawberry consumers, a study was conducted by NCBI towards drying technologies in Romania, Norway, and Turkey. The presence of a large number of outlets in these regions will also catapult the growth of the air-dried food market in the future.
