The report opines that continuous rotary dryers will remain preferred among end users, with sales in 2018 estimated at approximately 270 units. Elimination of consecutive drying requirements per material load, involved in batch drying processes, and relevant operational cost, have advocated the adoption of continuous rotary dryers among industries. Additionally, advances in continuous rotary dryers such as integration of multiple functions, which range from granulation and coating, to cleaning and classifying, have been favoring the popularity and sales of continuous rotary dryers in recent years.
According to the report, although the drying technologies have been an essential requirement in the manufacturing processes, the industry is closing in on its maturity in terms of application. However, the proliferation of the medical marijuana industry has been paving opportunities for the manufacturers of industrial dryers, which in turn has rubbed off on the development and adoption of rotary dryers to a significant extent. As the demand for industrial hemp drying equipment continues to surge, the rotary dryers industry will continue to witness a sustained growth.
