"E-commerce and Industry 4.0 are driving today’s Material Handling boom"

E-commerce and industry 4.0 are transforming traditional supply chains, compelling the companies to change the way they move, track, and store material by using technology & automation, creating the need for conveyor systems. Manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and logistics companies are establishing fulfillment centers and utilizing all available warehouse space, which aids the global market rise. For instance, Industrial Kinetics is supplying a pair of a dual strand in-floor vehicle slat conveyors for a large vehicle manufacturer which will convey around 385 tons of vehicles, 250 tons of conveyor chains, and about 635 tons of materials. The conveyor systems market demand is because of the need for automating the complete manufacturing process.

The global market is divided into four segments, i.e., by type, by location, by load & by the application. The segmentations provide an overall understanding of the global market structure. By type, flat belt conveyors have the highest share in the conveyor systems market. Flat belt conveyors are endless continuous belts that are being used to convey products or materials. These flat belt conveyors are made from various materials such as rubbers, plastics, fabric, metal & leather. These conveyors are used to convey different types of products via different belt types such as heavier loads require thicker & stronger belt. Other than flat belt conveyors roller conveyors also have substantial market share. Roller conveyor systems are of two kinds; gravity controlled & powered roller conveyors. Gravity controlled rollers are used to move products manually when placed horizontally whereas powered roller conveyors help to move materials using belts or rollers. Both the types of conveyor systems are used to move the products in a straight or curved structure based on the application in the industry.

By location, conveyor systems are segmented into three types that are in-floor, on-floor & overhead conveyors. Overhead conveyors are mounted on ceilings that use chains, cables, trolleys or similar connections to move products from one place to another. Overhead conveyor systems are used in the industries where products are required to be hanged such as paint lines, part handling systems, dry cleaning garment lines, or for cooling/ cleaning job in the assembly line. There are many types of overhead conveyors; electric track, monorail, trolley, etc. Mostly theses conveyors are powered and controlled or moved manually depending upon its application.

Conveyor systems are also classified by the types of loads that they convey like unit load & bulk load. These loads are carried depending on the material and physical state that is whether it is in solid-state, liquid, or gas with their packaging type. Unit loads are carried as a single item or multiple items that are organized so that they can be conveyed without disturbing their integrity.

Furthermore, conveyor systems are segmented by their applications in different industries such as food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, supply chain & logistics, manufacturing, mining & others. Conveyor systems share a significant part of the material handling process in the industries as it is involved in every industrial step. Additionally, increasing automation with a reduction in overall cost is the primary reason behind the continuous increase in the adoption of conveyors in all the industries, which augurs well for the conveyor systems market. Among the end-use industries supply chain & logistics industry is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate for the forecast period. Moreover, the variety in the application of the conveyor system is adopted by manufacturing industries such as automotive, retail, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals and other applications such as public infrastructure like an airport, etc. which are among the major driving factors for the global market.


Aisa-Pacific is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR in the global market for the forecast period. The growth in this region is anticipated to increase with the development in the end-use industries such as FMCG, automobile, airport & mining. India & China are the major contributors to the growth in the region and the global market ultimately, where China is home to numerous global, accompanied by provincial automotive manufacturers, for example, BYD Automotive, Geely, Dongfeng, Volkswagen, Ford Motor Co., and others. Furthermore, bulk material handling & storage systems are facilitating the management of large volumes of data, thereby reducing the unnecessary time consumption fueling the regional growth of the global market in the region.

The European market is valued at USD 924.3 Million in 2018, thereby emerging as a promising region for the global market. The region is witnessing growth with the adoption of automation in the manufacturing units along with increasing penetration of advanced technologies, such as IoT, RFID, and AI. Rising labor cost, along with infrastructure limitation, is expected to drive the conveyor systems market growth in the region.
