End-use Industries Setting Momentum for Conveyor System Market Growth

Advancements in technologies have led end-use industries to include automation. Use of automatic conveyor systems to test applications resulted in reduced ergonomic issues created due to humans performing repetitive jobs. In several end-use industries, end users often work with large heavy parts, which can be easily handled by conveyor systems.

  • For instance, the electronic industry demands more precision, flexibility, and speed from a system. Assembly applications in this industry, when carried out with conveyor systems, can save operations cost, throughput time, and offer maximum accuracy.
  • Conveyor systems serve food and agriculture, plastics and polymers, pharmaceutical and chemistry, furniture and equipment, as well as science and research fields. Advancements in technology and trending automation in these industries are pivotal factors for the growth of the material handling equipment market, in turn, driving the demand for conveyor systems.

Conveyor System Market: Vendor Insights

The global conveyor system market is estimated to be fragmented with Tier-1 players accounting for about one-fourth of the global market share. Manufacturers who can offer exceptionally reliable and efficient conveyor systems in a short time can gain clear competitive edge in the global conveyor system market. Investment in research and development could also create opportunities for conveyor system manufacturers as chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, and transportation end-use industries invest significantly in procuring material handling equipment that are technologically advanced, as factory automation is not a benefit in these industries, instead, it has become a need.
