The desiccant wheel is one of the various methods used for dehumidification. It consists of a rotating wheel which absorb moisture from the air allowed to pass through it. It consists of a rotating wheel for absorbing moisture from the nearby surrounding by allowing the air to pass through it. The wheel is either coated with a desiccant material or the material is kept inside the hollow wheel. The desiccant material absorbs any kind of moisture in a closed atmosphere granting a complete control over the humidity in the area. The desiccant used to absorb moisture can be reused by removing moisture from it. Therefore, desiccant wheel offers better humidity control than compressor dehumidifier and thermal wheels at relatively lower operating cost. Consequently, the demand for the desiccant wheel for humidity control is expected to grow even further in the following years.

In past few years, rising atmospheric temperature has resulted in the rise of global humidity level. Higher humidity level offers undesirable working environment for many industrial verticals such as pharmaceutical, chemical, and food industries. Most of the chemicals and ingredients used in aforementioned industries have a tendency to absorb moisture. The moisture degrades the quality of these ingredients making them undesirable for further processing or consumption. The hygroscopic material used in this industry can absorb humidity making them undesirable to be used for further processing. In order to maintain the humidity level in the processing premises, these industries extensively make use of desiccant wheels. The time required by the desiccant wheel for absorbing the moisture is comparatively less than the other dehumidifying methods such as compressor dehumidifier and thermal wheels. In addition, the desiccant wheel also aids in maintaining stringent regulations laid by the government authorities for maintaining the suitable conditions for the aforementioned industries. The ability to reuse desiccant material in the wheel makes it cost effective than compressor driven dehumidifier or thermal wheel. Therefore, the desiccant wheel market is expected to rise even further during the forecast period.

The global desiccant wheel market is segmented, based on type, into following categories:

  • Silica Gel
  • Molecular Sieve
  • Activated Alumina
  • Others

Desiccant wheel market

As of 2016, the silica gel desiccant wheels segment dominated the overall desiccant wheels market worldwide. Silica gel based desiccant wheels attributed to more than 60% of the total market share in the overall desiccant wheel market. On account of factors such as higher availability and ease of use, silica gel has gained immense popularity for producing desiccant wheels. In addition, silica gel based desiccant wheels are regarded as one of the safety dehumidifiers that can be used in food and beverages industry. Thereby, these desiccant wheels have experienced higher degree of adoption all across the globe.

Molecular sieve segment trails the silica gel in terms of revenue, as of 2016. Molecular sieve offer similar advantages that of silica gel. However, at relative humidity above 40% the ability of molecular sieve to absorb moisture reduces. Consequently, the molecular sieves are used for a limited end-use applications such as packaging industries. In the following years, the demand for molecular sieve is expected to rise steadily.

The global desiccant wheel market is segmented, based on application, into following categories:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Chemical
  • Food and Beverages
  • Electronics
  • Warehouse
  • Others

Desiccant wheel market

As of 2016, the pharmaceutical end-use application dominated the overall desiccant wheels market worldwide. Pharmaceutical companies need to maintain atmospheric humidity level and must have precise control over moisture content. Especially, the units having the capacity for making tablets. Most of the ingredients used in pharmaceutical companies are hygroscopic in nature. Consequently, this end-use application extensively uses desiccant wheels for dehumidification. These wheels are chemically stable and do not react with most of the elements thus, making it safe to use in such conditions. With consistent rise in the pharmaceutical sector, it is expected that the desiccant wheel market will also show a positive growth throughout the forecast period.

In 2016, chemical industry trailed the pharmaceutical end-use application in the overall desiccant wheels market in terms of revenue. Desiccant wheels are chemically inactive and are completely non-flammable. These properties are suitable for a chemical plant or processing units. Faster operation helps the chemical industry to have complete control over the moisture content within the premises. Growing chemical industries and increased adoption of the desiccant wheels for moisture absorption have resulted in the rise of desiccant wheel market.

The global desiccant wheel market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World (RoW)
    • The Middle East and Africa
    • Latin America

 Desiccant wheel market

North America dominated the overall desiccant wheels market in terms of revenue, as of 2016. The North America market is backed by the extensive use of the desiccant wheels in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. With strong pharmaceuticals and chemical industries, the overall market for desiccant wheels is expected to remain strong in the North American region throughout the forecast period.

In 2016, Asia Pacific trailed North America in the overall desiccant wheels market. Blooming manufacturing sector coupled with rising needs of HVAC equipment have escalated the demand for desiccant wheels in this region. Desiccant wheel is a fast, efficient and economical way to control the moisture content. Therefore, these wheels are adopted on a large scale by various end-use application across the growing economies of Asia Pacific. The market for the desiccant wheel in Asia-Pacific is expected to surpass the North American market during the forecast period.
