Global High Pressure Processing Market Driven by Growing Awareness of Benefits of Thermal Degradation

High Pressure Processing2Transparency Market Research (TMR) has announced a new report in its vast and growing catalog of food and beverage industry intelligence reports. The report studies the global high pressure processing market and presents forecasts for the market’s growth from 2016 to 2024. The report is titled ‘High Pressure Processing (HPP) Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2016 – 2024’ and includes detailed market insights generated by experienced market analysts.

High pressure processing (HPP) is an increasingly popular method of sterilizing processed food. High pressure processing consists of applying high isostatic pressure on a container containing the processed food product. Water is used to apply the isostatic pressure, making high pressure processing a freezing pasteurization technique. The high pressures in the container undergoing HPP treatment are fatal for the microbes still surviving in the food, which enhances the safety of the food. HPP eliminates fungi, bacteria, moulds, parasites, as well as viruses from the processed food, making it a highly effective alternative to thermal degradation.

In contrast to thermal degradation, which is the conventional technique used to achieve the removal of the last remaining microbes in processed food, high pressure processing doesn’t affect the chemical composition of the food being treated. Whereas thermal degradation can lead to significant loss of both flavor and nutrients due to their reaction to heat, high pressure processing sterilizes the food without adversely affecting its flavor and nutrition content. This is particularly an advantage in the seafood and meat industries, where high pressure processing is increasingly being used to achieve sterilization without affecting even the texture of the meat products. This is a major driver for the global high pressure processing market’s trajectory in the forecast period.

The higher convenience and efficacy of high pressure processing over thermal degradation is another key driver for the global HPP market. High pressure processing also doesn’t involve any chemical additives, which are rendered needless due to the nature of the treatment, and can be completed much faster than thermal degradation.

However, the higher costs of high pressure processing have held the global market back in the last few years. Though acceptance of high pressure processing is growing, awareness about its benefits still needs to expand in order to make end users aware of the notable benefits of the process.

Regionally, the report covers the performance of the high pressure processing market in North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Africa, Western Europe, and Eastern Europe. Key market players profiled in the report include Avure Technologies Inc., Multivac Sepp Haggenmüller GmbH, Stansted Fluid Power Ltd., Millard Refrigerated Services, and Kobe Steel Ltd.
