Belt conveyor was the dominant material segment and accounted for 24.2% of the overall revenue share in 2019 owing to a rise in the demand for belt conveyor in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, airport, and mining applications. It is the most common conveying equipment which offers a wide variety of application across the industries. Belt conveyors can be operated at various speeds depending on the throughput required by using variable speed drive.
Overhead conveyors are projected to register a CAGR of 3% from 2020 to 2027. Overhead conveyors are usually used in material handling applications where products need to be hung for instance paint lines, dry-cleaning garment lines, or parts handling systems. Overhead conveyors can be mounted above the workplace with floor supported or roof-supported structure.
Chain conveyors are used to conveying bulk materials in bins or pallets. It uses a chain, or multiple chains to transfer pallets or other hard-to-convey products. Bucket conveyors use multi-sided containers to convey products. They are used in various applications including bulk material, parts, or food handling and processing.
The unit load segment dominated the global conveying equipment market and accounted for 44.5% of the total demand in 2019. The use of unit handling equipment is primarily for handling small batches which is most widely applicable in industries such as food and beverage processing, warehouse and distribution, and manufacturing of automotive industries besides other durable goods industries.
Global parts & attachments segment expanding at an estimated CAGR of 3.1% from 2020 to 2027. Parts and attachments are not only used in other conveying equipment but also used separately as an independent machine for light-weighted activities. This has given a boost to the market demand for parts and attachments.
The warehouse and distribution end-use segment dominated the market by accounting for a share of 22.1% of the total revenue share in 2019 on account of the growing demand for the e-commerce industry. Furthermore, significant growth of supermarkets online retails, and distribution centers, especially in the Asia Pacific, and North America, projected to have a positive impact on the market
Conveying equipment is extensively used in the food and beverage industry. Belt conveyor is the most commonly used conveyor that is used in the packaging and processing of food products. Belt conveyors can be used to horizontally transport, elevate, or decline material for cooling, inspection, storing, or conveying. Other conveyors such as screw, vibratory, aero-mechanical conveyors are also used in food processing industries.
Conveying equipment has a wide range of applications in the automotive industry including moving parts, indexing, processing, vision integration, welding, and moving parts for assembly lines. Belt conveyor, roller conveyor, overhead conveyor, and slat conveyor are the commonly used conveyor types in the automotive industry. The automotive end-use segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of 2.5% over the forecast period.
Conveying equipment finds its applications in numerous end-use industries including packaging, electrical and electronics, consumer goods, mining, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals, among others. Growing industrialization, technological developments, and increased infrastructure spending anticipated having a positive impact on the market over the forecast period.
Asia Pacific was the largest consumer of conveying equipment, accounting for over 30.3% of the total revenue share in 2019 and is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period. An increasing number of industries and requirements for fast as well as efficient material handling system products is expected to drive the market growth in this region.
North America conveying equipment market has been witnessing stagnant growth rates over the last few years owing to increasing governmental norms and standards and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. A major opportunity exists for the conveying equipment with respect to technology as the market can innovate better products to facilitate customized needs.
Europe conveying equipment market projected to expand at a CAGR of 2.5% over the forecast period on account of increasing construction and infrastructure spending coupled with increasing industries in this region. The market growth is further augmented by the increasing automation and reducing human efforts in manufacturing plants and distribution centers.
Central and South America offer tremendous potential and opportunities in the field of conveying equipment. Relaxed government regulations in countries such as Brazil, and Argentina coupled with the rising globalization and privatization expected to exhibit a significant leap in terms of industrialization, which, in turn, expected to have a positive impact on the market.
