Conveyor Belt Market Size, Growth and Forecast (2022-2027)

The Global Conveyor Belts Market size was valued at US$ 6.33 Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach the valuation of US$ 7.77 Billion by 2027 and is predicted to register a CAGR of 3.23% during 2022-2027.

Market Overview:

A conveyor belt is the carrying medium of a belt conveyor system which is one of many types of conveyor systems. This system comprises two or more pulleys, with an endless loop of carrying medium the conveyor belt, that rotates about them where one or both of the pulleys are powered, moving the belt and the material on the belt forward. The lift that was powered is called the drive pulley while the unpowered pulley is called the idler pulley.

The growth of this market is attributed to the rising industrial development activities in developing economies owing to the major reforms made by respective governments. These products are utilized for carrying materials or components of different sizes, shapes, and weights from one place to another in various end-user industries. Essential parts of automation solutions in manufacturing plants are the conveyor belts as they subsequently reduce the operation time, cost, and material losses.

The object to be moved is placed on the belt and is carried to the required destination point. For better performance of these belts, the uniformity of the conveyor belt is crucial, and the thickness of the conveyor material must be consistent.

Recent Developments in Conveyor Belt Industry:

  • TGW Logistics Group will sell some of its US conveyor assets in Norton Shores, Michigan, to Material Handling Systems Inc. in January 2021. (MHS). The two corporations have signed a contract, and the acquisition is anticipated to go into effect in February 2021. Lincoln International aided TGW throughout the whole M&A process. As a result of the sale, TGW has changed its strategic portfolio to focus on the growing integration industry in North America.
  • Dorner Manufacturing Corporation upgraded their Flex Move Helix Conveyors with a number of additional features in December 2020. D-Tools accessibility and reduced lead times result in a more responsive and user-friendly experience. Product engineers, plant managers, and others can now use D-Tools, Dorner's online conveyor configurator, to simply download CAD models and build Helix Conveyors to match their particular application in minutes.

Conveyor Belts Market Drivers:

In Latin America, the mining industry is likely to see a boom of new investments, especially in Brazil and Chile. Since mining involves the handling of larger quantities of commodities, a conveyor system is the most efficient and cost-effective long-distance alternative. Consumer purchasing power is increasing, and these regions' economies are growing, which has aided the manufacturing industry's development. Manufacturing, baggage handling, food and beverage, mining, and other industries have all used automation to move closer to the zero-defect goal.

Conveyor Belts Market Restraints:

In an increasingly competitive market across all industries, companies are constantly looking for ways to improve their processes, which has increased the need for industrial facility automation.  Various ongoing improvements in automation have been observed in the business. These can aid in satisfying material handling capacity needs, resulting in reduced production time, reduced human error, increased safety, greater production volume, and increased precision and repeatability. As a result of these advantages, a rising number of businesses are incorporating such technology into their material handling procedures. The International Federation of Robotics (IFR) estimates that 2.7 million robots will be employed in enterprises around the world by 2020. The widespread use of industrial robots may have a negative impact on the conveyor system market. However, due to the expensive cost of automated guided vehicles, the impact is projected to be limited.

Conveyor Belts Market Opportunities:

During the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the manufacture and distribution of personal protective equipment (PPE) kits and treatments such as hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) pills surged. The pharmaceutical and healthcare industries are likely to be driven by the supply of basics and the manufacture of medical equipment, which will increase demand for material handling. The world's largest producer of HCQ pills is India. The creation of HCQ tablets is strengthening the healthcare industry, notably in India, under this unusual situation. The Indian government has just begun exporting HCQ pills to 55 countries. Exports were initially prohibited, but were eventually permitted due to the humanitarian implications of COVID-19. Around 13 nations have already got the medicine, which is available both commercially and through grants-in-aid well. During the COVID-19 crisis, increased demand from the pharmaceutical and warehouse & distribution industries is likely to fuel demand for conveyor systems.

Conveyor Belts Market Challenges:

Conveyor systems include a lot of moving parts, so they're prone to a lot of little faults that can quickly escalate into big problems that cause production to stop. In the case of seized rollers, for example, the final items may develop minor flaws, resulting in large losses for the company. The more complicated these systems are, the more likely they are to collapse. Continuous breakdowns may also shorten the conveyor system's lifespan. Such concerns result in a high maintenance cost, which accounts for a significant portion of a conveyor system's total cost of ownership. Several incidents have resulted in significant financial losses for businesses. In December 2020, for example, a female worker was hurt when her arm became caught in a conveyor belt at a Tyson Foods plant (US). OSHA, or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is a government body that sets standards and requirements for all industries, including automation. It also offers warehouse safety solutions for frequent problems that can arise when using conveyor systems. To decrease accidents and promote employee safety, businesses must adhere to OSHA standards. As a result, eliminating accidents is a challenge for the conveyor system market.
