LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global industrial potato fryers market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
The market is expected to grow in terms of demand during the forecast period. The rise in the consumption of potato snacks in various countries, including the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Brazil, the UK, and China, has led to an increase in production by manufacturers. It has also led to the construction of new processing plants to meet consumer demands. For instance, in March 2017, McCain Foods announced its plan to expand its potato processing plant in Scarborough, UK. The expansion aims at upgrading the existing equipment.
Manu Gupta, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on food service sector, says, “During the forecast period, the market growth may be restricted by some factors. The Brazilian and South African governments have imposed an anti-dumping duty on the export of potato products from various countries, such as the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium. The potato crisis in Japan also had a negative impact on the market growth.”

Growing preference for specially designed continuous fryers
Continuous fryers have been widely used in potato processing for many years. Manufacturers have come up with innovations and modifications in continuous fryers to increase frying efficiency. Some of the specially designed continuous fryers are multizone fryers, multistage fryers, thermal fluid heated fryers, and vacuum fryers.
“Multizone fryers have lower frying temperatures, which help in producing potato chips that are light and have a uniform color. The oil in the fryer is heated using an external heater and is introduced and removed at different points of the fryer. This helps in controlled dehydration of the product, maintaining a uniform oil temperature for frying, and ensuring the uniform cooking of chips,” according to Manu.
New product launches with innovative technologies
Key vendors in the industrial potato fryers market are competing and trying to increase the sales of new equipment by coming up with new technological advances for frying equipment. The market has witnessed the launch of many new products with advanced technologies.
In March 2016, Heat and Control launched the Unitized Vacuum Fryer (UVF). It is a vacuum fryer without an external vacuum chamber. It is easy to clean and maintain and uses less energy and floor space. It has the capacity to process 1,100 pounds of potato chips per hour. It is integrated with new technologies, including the KleenSweep system, centrifugal oil filtration system, vacuum generation system, and programmable logic controller (PLC).
Increasing focus on reduction of pollution, energy consumption, and costs
Emissions from equipment, energy consumption, and increasing operational costs have been major concerns for manufacturers in the industrial potato fryers market. Thus, manufacturers have come up with proven solutions to reduce fuel consumption, air pollution, and water wastage.
Booster Heater is a system that uses exhaust gas for preheating the oil in the fryer. It improves the heat exchanger efficiency. The Combustion Air Preheat System uses the exhaust heat to produce high-temperature air. This can be used by the burner for heating, thereby reducing fuel consumption.
The key vendors are as follows:
