Global Single Screw Food Extruder Market – Introduction

  • Single screw food extruder is a machine where food products are processed to accommodate the demand of consumers for a variety of food items. The change in food technology involves various kinds of processes such as texturizing, transfer of heat, mixing, kneading, pressure changes while cooking, etc. In extrusion, soft mixed ingredients are forced into an opening consisting of a die designed plate to produce a specific shape of a food product. A single screw food extruder keeps the mixed granules of food for a longer time and works in rotary mechanism. The mechanical shear from the screw and thermal heat from the barrel convert the solid polymer into melt which is then pushed out of the die. Processed food includes pastas, macaroni, breakfast cereal, sweet pastries, cakes, breads, biscuits, and snacks.

Rising consumer demand for processed food driving the sale of single screw food extruders

  • Growing needs of consumers driven by changing lifestyle patterns, and high net disposable incomes have led to an increase in demand for ready-to-eat products and savory snacks that come in packed format, besides high demand for textured protein such as soy meat and soya chunks. The increase in sales of single screw food extruders is highly dependent on the sale of such processed food items. The sales pattern of processed food has increased considerably resulting in the high sales of single screw food extruders. Meat products such as bacon, sausages, ham, salami, and pate, cheese products, beverages, and canned vegetables are propelling the demand for single screw food extruders.

Technological advancements and mass production, major factors leading to increase in use of single screw food extruders

  • Single screw food extruder is an innovative product having properties of hot and cold extrusion. High-temperature extrusion for a shorter time duration reduces losses in vitamins, minerals, and amino-acids. Anti-nutritional factors are minimized through extrusion, while producing food items on a large scale. Furthermore, destroying toxins, and killing micro-organisms is one of the key characteristics of single screw food extruders. Extrusion technology has been remarkable in the snack food industry, which has increased the scope of new shapes, sizes, and textures of packaged snack food using various raw materials. These factors have made food extrusion process a feasible option for food manufacturing industry players. Growth in the single screw food extruder market is propelled by the daily consumption of food.
