U.S. Marijuana Drying And Curing Equipment market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Widespread legalization of hemp across the world is anticipated to boost market demand. Due to this, the creation of new business opportunities and investments in the development of cultivation facilities and capital equipment are expected. Regulatory agencies are putting more stringent rules and quality control procedures into place as a result of the legalization of marijuana. To achieve these requirements and guarantee that cannabis products are secure, uniform, and lawful, proper drying and curing equipment are necessary.

As a result of changing governmental policy, many nations that have legalized medical marijuana usage are also allowing for its cultivation to reduce imports and generate tax revenue. This has led to the creation of jobs in the industry and a lot more companies are exploring this area. Quite a few startups in the U.S. and Europe are now concentrating on alternate uses of cannabis other than medicinal and recreational. For instance, a cannabis start-up company called 3Chi focuses on creating products with Delta-8 THC, a substance generated from hemp that is permitted under federal law. They offer candies, vape cartridges, and tinctures, all of which have undergone independent quality and purity testing.

Another significant factor influencing the market is the growing demand for high-quality cannabis products, such as edibles, concentrates, oils, and dried flowers. Cannabis drying and curing methods are receiving greater attention as consumers are getting pickier about the quality that they ingest. In order to maintain the potency, flavor, aroma, and general quality of cannabis products, effective drying and curing techniques are essential in the cannabis production post-harvest process. The need for efficient drying and curing processes is driving the demand for specialized equipment in the market.

The growing commercial cannabis cultivation and technological advancements are other factors driving demand. The increased cultivation requires efficient and reliable equipment to ensure proper drying and curing on a larger scale. Technological innovations such as precise humidity and temperature control mechanisms, climate-controlled environments, data monitoring solutions, and automated systems have revolutionized the drying and curing processes and offers cultivators greater control over the drying and curing conditions, resulting in improved product quality and reduced processing times.

Country Insights

The U.S. dominated the marijuana drying and curing equipment market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 39.1% in 2022, owing to the social acceptance of marijuana, technological advancements and growing cultivation, and its role in relieving pain for patients. The rapid increase in the rate at which the government is decriminalizing cannabis for both medical and adult-use or recreational use of marijuana is a key factor driving the regional market. In May 2023, Minnesota became the 23rd jurisdiction to legalize marijuana for recreational use in the U.S.
