Global Flat Belt Conveyors Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A flat belt conveyor is a conveyor that uses a horizontal belt on which products are carried. The belt is supported by pulleys and typically runs over rollers or drums to keep it moving. Flat belt conveyors are often used in manufacturing and assembly lines to move materials from one point to another.

Open Belt Conveyors:

Open belt conveyors are primarily used in material handling applications where the product to be transported is exposed and can be grabbed by the belts. Open belt conveyors are also known as flat or horizontal belt conveyors, they have a large number of advantages over vertical or inclined belt conveyor which includes less operating time, low maintenance cost and flexibility in terms of loading on the belts.

Enclosed Belt Conveyors:

Enclosed Belt Conveyors (EBC) are used in Flat Belt Conveyors to transfer material within a closed loop. The conveyor belt is enclosed by the EBC which prevents the material from moving out and also assists in maintaining uniformity of speed throughout the belt.

The primary function of an enclosed belt conveyor is to maintain constant contact between a stationary power source and moving stock, thereby assuring efficient operation of all components involved.

Application Insights:

Food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics and cosmetics are the major application areas of the global flat belt conveyors market. In 2017, food & beverages were the largest application segment with a share of over 40%. The segment is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period.

The product demand in this industry is witnessing an upsurge due to rapid industrialization and urbanization leading to increasing population in developing countries such as India and China. Moreover, governments from various angles are making efforts for improving people¢â‚¬â„¢s lifestyle which includes improving their diet quality along with regular exercise through gym activities which further boosts product demand in this sector globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global flat belt conveyors market in 2017. This is attributed to increasing industrialization and rapid urbanization in this region. Moreover, rising demand for processed food coupled with growing pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

Europe accounted for a significant share of revenue in 2017 owing to high demand from end-use industries such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics among others. The presence of major companies such as Siemens AG; Alstom; Gamesa Corporation; General Electric; ABB Ltd.; MAN Diesel & Turbo SE; and Volvo AB has led to an increase in investments by these companies which will boost product adoption over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for flat belt conveyors from the automotive and food processing industries
  • Growing popularity of modular belt conveyors in small and medium-sized enterprises
  • Rising adoption of flat belt conveyors in e-commerce and retail sectors
  • Proliferation of automated material handling systems across various industrial verticals
  • Technological advancements in flat belt conveyor design and manufacturing
