A brief analysis of the development status and trend of domestic vacuum freeze dryers
Vacuum freeze-drying technology mainly realizes the removal of moisture by sublimating the moisture in the material. In the biomedicine industry, compared to traditional drying technology, vacuum freeze-drying technology retains its original technical advantages without affecting the appearance and shape of medicines, and preserves biological organisms to a greater extent. The activity is also more conducive to the preservation of biological products, realizing the extension of its preservation time, so it is widely used in the field of medicine. In recent years, with the continuous improvement of domestic biomedical technology and the rapid development of the pharmaceutical industry under the background of an aging population, the development of the vacuum freeze dryer industry has also received attention from the industry. This article mainly makes a brief analysis of the development status and trends of domestic vacuum freeze dryers, for reference only in the industry.
The development status of domestic vacuum freeze dryer
Compared with imported vacuum freeze-drying equipment, domestically-made equipment has obvious price advantages and convenient maintenance. At present, domestically-made vacuum freeze-drying machines can meet the basic drying needs of small and medium-sized enterprises in most fields such as pharmaceuticals and food, and the industry has huge room for development.
The data shows that the domestic vacuum freeze dryer market scale in 2018 is about 900 million yuan. With the development of domestic vacuum freeze-drying technology, and the rapid development of biomedicine, traditional Chinese medicine, food and other fields, the demand for such equipment increases, domestic vacuum freeze-drying machines still have great market potential. The industry predicts that by 2023, my country's vacuum freeze dryer market will exceed 1.74 billion yuan.
It is worth mentioning that compared with imported equipment, domestic vacuum freeze dryers still have a big gap in innovation and other aspects. On the one hand, domestic vacuum freeze dryers are mostly low-end products, and the innovation ability of enterprises is relatively low. It is very difficult to introduce new technologies and new products with independent intellectual property rights.
It is understood that this is mainly due to the late start of my country's vacuum freeze-drying technology, and most small and medium-sized enterprises mainly imitate foreign equipment and have weak autonomy. At present, most of the foreign countries mainly rely on continuous units, which can realize automatic control and simplify manual operation and management. However, domestic enterprises have a clear gap in this regard. Therefore, imported equipment still occupies most of the domestic market share, and domestic enterprises mainly focus on the low-end market, and the homogeneity of products is serious.
On the other hand, in recent years, R&D and innovation in the field of vacuum freeze-drying equipment have mainly relied on universities and research institutes, which are out of touch with vacuum freeze-drying enterprises. This also makes it difficult to effectively transform knowledge achievements into the actual productivity of enterprises. Therefore, it is necessary to continuously strengthen industry-university-research cooperation, go deep into the enterprise, and accelerate the transformation of knowledge achievements in order to promote the technological progress of domestic vacuum drying equipment and the breakthrough of new products.
From the perspective of the development trend of vacuum freeze-drying equipment, combined with recent changes in the policy environment and market demand, two signals are mainly released: environmental protection and intelligence.
In terms of environmental protection, with the development of society, the supervision of environmental protection in pharmaceutical and other industries has become more and more stringent. The state has also issued a series of policies to support green production enterprises. In this context, the concept of energy saving and environmental protection of vacuum freeze drying equipment has gradually Promote. Vacuum freeze-drying equipment manufacturers need to increase research on environmental protection, continuously reduce equipment energy consumption, and further realize green production, which will bring more benefits and value to society.
In terms of intelligence, domestic vacuum freeze dryers have a lot of room to replace imports. They need to transform from low-end to high-end, continuously strengthen R&D investment, improve independent innovation capabilities, upgrade equipment automation levels, and create more free hands for workers. The economical continuous equipment accelerates the pace of domestic substitution and helps my country’s pharmaceutical and other industries to develop better.
