Food Industry Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) Systems Market Introduction

  • Food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems are widely used in the food and beverage industry as a superior non-thermal processing method.
  • This system utilizes short pulses of electricity for inactivation of microbes from food and beverage products.
  • Food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems offer microbiologically safe, fresh, nutritious, and minimally processed food products.

Food Industry Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) Systems Market Dynamics

  • Rapidly growing demand for fresh, durable and safe food products among consumers across the world has driven the emergence of disinfection as a critical procedure in increasing the shelf life of food products.
  • The rising adoption of food sterilization has empowered the selection of pulsed electric field (PEF) processing for the best possible sterilization of food products by preventing spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms.
  • The utilization of PEF disturbs the cell layer of microorganisms causing the leakage of intracellular substance, in the long run controlling the development of microbial cells.
  • Continuously increasing need for food disinfection has empowered the utilization of PEF processing, eventually driving the development of the food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems market.
  • Continuous introduction and product launch of new PEF systems is gaining prominence in the food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems market. Thus, leading vendors are engaged in launching innovative products and solutions to meet the market demand as well as to gain a competitive position in the food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems market.
  • In addition, the PEF system is increasingly being adopted among users as an alternative to thermal pasteurization.
  • Thermal pasteurization is a conventional process widely used in the food industry to deactivate microorganisms in liquid food. However, this process may lead to issues such as loss of texture and loss of freshness of food and aroma.
  • Food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems are a very high energy intensive method. Thus, high voltage PEF systems have emerged as an effective substitute for thermal pasteurization to process food and beverage products.
  • However, high initial cost of installation of PEF systems is expected to hinder the adoption of food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems. High cost associated with initial set-up prevents food and beverage processing companies from adopting the PEF system, thereby hindering the food industry pulsed electric field (PEF) systems market.
