  • Text Size:

Global Conveyor Belts Market Overview 

Conveyor belts are basically employed to carry goods and are basically used in manufacturing, and mining industries. The system is composed of two or more pulleys and a belt rotating on them. The material to be transported is placed on the belts and carried to the end point of the belt. The system is used to transport the material over a short distance generally with in a property. The belt is made up of rubber with uniform composition throughout. Dependent upon the industrialization, GDP growth, infrastructural activities such as mall, airport etc., conveyor belts market is projected to expand at a modest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during 2015-2021. In past few years, the demand for conveyor from almost every sector has seen a sharp rise and is projected to maintain the same demand in near future.

Growth Driver and Challenges

Economical investments, growth in the manufacturing sector, much appreciated GDP growth especially in developing countries such as China and India, are some of the major growth drivers of global conveyor market. Conveyor belts are mainly used because of its cost-effectiveness and versatility. In addition to that stiff, competition in the end-user product manufacturing industries have forced the companies to adopt efficient techniques to maintain low production cost. The use of industrial conveyor systems enables manufacturers to reduce inventory levels and in turn, reduce overall costs. 

Major challenge which is restraining the growth of the market is the initial high investment to install, need for continuous support and maintenance for effective performance of conveyor equipment.

Market size and forecast

Global conveyor belt market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period 2016-2020. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region for conveyor belts in the next few years; Asia-Pacific comprises of two of the fastest emerging economies across the globe such as India and China. It has been noticed that over the past few years, multinational companies from developed countries have installed their production base in countries such as India and China due to availability of cheaper input cost profiles such as labor, raw material, and equipment.

          Conveyor Belt Market

Further, North America is expected to be the second largest market for conveyor belts which is anticipated to grow at a better pace in the forecast period. The medium-weight conveyor belt segment dominated the global conveyor belt market during 2015 and accounted for almost 56% of the total market share. The availability of cost-efficient raw materials, labor, and equipment coupled with the growth of manufacturing activities has increased market share of medium-weight conveyor belt in the same year.
