This helps to improve production capabilities and increase ROI (Return on Investment).
Pump manufacturers are focusing on improving product integrity in order to reduce manufacturing costs and benefit bottom lines. They are adhering to industry standards in order to increase the availability of certified pumps. The prevention of product degradation is the key for cheese production and ultimately boosts market growth, where the food & beverages industry pumps market is predicted to cross valuation of US$ 6.7 Bn by 2030.
Peristaltic Pumps Prevent Hassles of High Claim for Compensations by Product Consumers
Increased awareness about food safety has compelled F&B producers to avoid one size fits all pumps and choose more specialized pumps. Manufacturers in the food & beverages industry pumps market are increasing their production capabilities for peristaltic pumps in order to meet stringent F&B regulations. Brands are cautious about their reputation in the market landscape, since degraded products can lead to economic losses. In order to reduce downtime, food producers are constantly scrutinizing their production and processing techniques.
In terms of protecting public health, food producers conduct cleaning activities of pumps and other machinery to avoid food contamination. This helps to avoid hassles of high claims for compensation and bolster the credibility of manufacturers in the food & beverages industry pumps market. As such, the peristaltic pump technology is gaining popularity for high volume food installation and filling applications.
Investments in Innovation Centers Translate into Revenue Opportunities for Pump Manufacturers
Fluid handling innovations are gaining prominence in the food & beverages industry pumps market. For instance, Alfa Laval— a specialist in heat transfer, separation, and fluid handling technologies, has invested in an Application and Innovation center in Denmark to excel in fluid handling technologies for the food and pharmaceutical industries. Investments in production capacities are translating into incremental opportunities for manufacturers in the food & beverages industry pumps market. The growing demand for hygienic fluid handling is fueling the demand for food industry pumps.
Robust testing facilities in innovation centers are helping manufacturers to develop industry-standard food pumps. Moreover, changing consumer trends in F&B products have compelled pump manufacturers to constantly innovate in food pumps. This has triggered the need for flexible process equipment to meet demanding requirements of consumers.
Pump manufacturers are capitalizing on increased dairy consumption in China, due to awareness about its health benefits in the light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Safe and efficient food production has become the key focus point for companies in the food & beverages industry pumps market. However, conventional centrifugal pumps cause increased churning of products, resulting in potential damage and degradation to food and beverages. Hence, pump manufacturers should increase their research about operational principles such as variable flow, viscosity, and abrasiveness to ensure product integrity. They should invest in innovation centers to cater to the ever-evolving consumer trends and increase the availability of flexible process equipment.
