The Global Dehydrated Food Market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3%, reaching USD 116.6 billion in 2028. The market has been witnessing an upward trend due to rising awareness about health and wellness among consumers, increasing demand for convenience foods by people on the go, and the development of new products with improved taste and texture profiles as well as innovative packaging solutions such as airtight containers.


The Dehydrated Food Market is drying food for preservation and it has been practiced since ancient times. Before the days of refrigerators, dehydrated foods were a really great way to preserve all kinds of products from fruits and vegetables to meats without having them spoil. Dehydrating is an excellent way to store fresh produce as it is not only natural but also economical. Dried fruit is particularly healthy thanks to its low sugar content when compared with canned or processed varieties whereas meat can be preserved so long as it’s fully dried out before placing in storage containers or plastic bags. Dehydration works by removing water from fresh products which leaves behind dry material that doesn't require any external sources of moisture until consumed again.


On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into spray-dried, freeze-dried, vacuum dried, sun-dried and hot air-dried.



Spray-drying is a dehydration process that involves the application of an atomized spray - typically from an air gun, nozzle, or another device. The droplets may be emitted in many patterns and sequences. As with all methods of drying food, it must be done without destroying the quality and flavor of the ingredient being preserved. Spraying achieves this by quickly moving heat to maintain product temperature at 140°F for 15 minutes while removing up to 99% of moisture through evaporation. This method works well on foods such as coffee beans where size reduction can cause clumping when left too long before processing begins, but it does not work well for items like onions that need to remain intact during storage.

One way of producing dehydrated vegetables, fruits, and meats, spray drying employs an atomizer nozzle that turns liquid feedstock into droplets so small they can be suspended in heated gas where rapid evaporation takes place. Spray Dried products have lower water content than vacuum-dried ones but higher levels than freeze-drying procedures due to their quick dehydration process.



Freeze-drying is a method of preserving food. It was invented in France by Nicolas Appert and has been used for over 200 years to preserve perishable foods such as raw milk, fruit juices, vegetables, soups, stews, and meats without the use of artificial refrigeration. The process consists of removing all water from the product typically via sublimation, quickly deep-freezing it at very low temperatures -60° C and then sealing it into specially designed airtight packages that are later heated briefly before their final storage for retail sale. This technique works well with high-moisture products because the heat will be conducted through less surface area.


Vacuum Dried:

vacuum is created in a chamber, removing the air. The temperature of the product will be lowered to about 40°C for drying with driers such as heat lamps or infrared radiation. This removes moisture from products like fruits and vegetables which can then last much longer without refrigeration or other preservation methods.



Sun-dried food refers to the process of drying the ingredients in direct sunlight. The sun's rays are full-spectrum and heat up moisture from inside out, making it evaporate quickly. This leads to an even distribution of dried ingredients on the surface that ensures they don't stick together or form clumps when stored for long periods of time without compromising their quality.


Hot-air Dried:

Hot-air drying is a technique that uses hot air to remove the moisture from food items. This helps in removing bacteria, mold, and other contaminants as well as stopping any microbial growth. The heat of the dryer also sterilizes each piece of food before it enters containers or bags for storage or shipping purposes.


On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into supermarkets, hypermarkets, and e-commerce.



A supermarket is a retail store that primarily sells food to the general public. It can be part of a chain, or independent. The Supermarket segment accounted for the largest share of the global dried food market in 2017 due to its convenience and availability than other segments such as hypermarkets and e-commerce. Furthermore, supermarkets offer an array of products at reasonable prices and have high customer traffic which resultantly leads to increased sales volumes.

In addition, supermarkets provide quality assurance from unhygienic practices because it provides sanitized equipment that minimizes microbial growth on product surfaces before packaging them up for shipping or sale purposes.


Dehydrated Food Market:

On the other hand, the Hypermarkets segment was expected to be a key driver for growth in the dehydrated food market over the forecast period. This is due to the hypermarket's ability to offer an extensive range of products from different brands at competitive prices and its proximity with customers which leads to increased customer traffic.



E-commerce has emerged as a key driver for the dehydrated food market because of its convenience and efficiency in reaching out to customers globally. E-commerce refers to shopping via electronic media such as online stores or mobile devices etc.


On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa. The North American market accounted for the largest revenue share in 2018.

The Asia Pacific and Latin America are among the fastest-growing regions, owing to a rise in per capita income levels as well as an increase in disposable incomes across these regions. The Middle East & Africa is projected to grow at a slower rate due to sluggish economic conditions such as geopolitical issues.
