Savory snacks are projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.
Extrusion technology is mainly used to produce snack products. These snacks may be either ready to eat, ready to fry, or ready to bake and consume. Raw materials such as rice, corn, potato, and taro, high in starch content, have been popular feed materials for food extrusion because of their ease of availability and good functional properties. Potato-based extruded snacks are the most popular among the snack foods in most regions. Corn and tortilla-based extruded snacks are increasingly becoming a significant portion of snack foods consumed.
By extruder type, the twin screw extruder segment dominated the food extrusion market in 2020.
Twin screw extruders consist of two intermeshing, co-rotating screws mounted on splined shafts in a closed barrel. The extruder can ensure transporting, compressing, mixing, cooking, shearing, heating, cooling, pumping, shaping, and various other functions with a high level of flexibility. Twin screw extrusion equipment offers numerous advantages over single screw extrusion and is responsible for the increased demand for these extruders from various manufacturers in the food processing industry.
