Ultra-high Temperature Processing: Introduction
- Ultra-high temperature (UHT) processing is a food processing technique used to kill bacterial endospores by heating the food at 135 °C. The UHT process includes heating the product at higher temperature, and rapidly cooling and packaging it in sterile containers.
- Increasing demand for food & beverage products with enhanced shelf life coupled with the fact that microorganisms are eliminated with minimum chemical change in the food & beverage product due to ultra-high temperature processing are the factors expected to drive the global UHT market during the forecast period.
Key Drivers and Opportunities of the Global Ultra-high Temperature Processing Market
- The growing demand for dairy products, minimum storage & logistics cost, minimum alteration in nutritional value of products, and changing consumer preferences are some of the factors that are expected to drive the ultra-high temperature processing market during the forecast period. In tropical countries, the shelf life of food is shorter due to climatic conditions, and thus the demand for UHT processing food is expected to be high in such countries during the forecast period.
- The COVID-19 pandemic will act in favor of the UHT processing market due to rising demand for healthy food & beverages. Consumers are concerned about the type of food & beverage they consume, its effect on health and on the environment. The increasing population will generate demand for more food products and thus will lead to the requirement for food products with higher shelf life. This will open doors for new manufacturers in developing countries in the global ultra-high temperature processing market during the forecast period.
- The higher equipment cost and need for timely maintenance may act as a hindrance to market growth. Manufacturers opt for pasteurizer units instead of UHT units because of low cost. This alternative coupled with higher capital investment may impact the growth of the ultra-high temperature processing market.
