Cost-effectiveness analysis of technological processes of the spray drying, which is used in many branches of industry, in particular in biotechnological one, is done. It is shown that the basic stimulus of development is an energy-saving. As a result of evolution, two-stage dryers appeared having an extra stage spray drying with vibroflyuidizatore (instantayzer) and three-stage dryers with the pseudo fluidized layer (fluid-bottom) came as well. It enabled to improv coefficient of efficiency from 54 to 80%. Cost-dryers used in food production, could also be used for large-tonnage products of microbiological synthesis. The main criterion for dryers in manufacture of pharmaceutical substances is their compliance with the GMP requirements and availability of the validation documents. A lot of companies produce such kind of dryers, among which Niro Atomizer and Anhуdro (Denmark) are at the top.

Key words: spray dryer, vibrofluidizator, fluidbottom, biotechnological industry.
