With rapid industrialization and growth in technology, the way an industry operates has revolutionized tremendously. Use of automated equipment and upgraded technique of production has become the need of the hour to facilitate timely manufacture of quality goods. This has promoted use of mechanical handling equipment recognized as conveyor systems or conveying equipment which are largely utilized for transportation, shipments and other related manufacturing activities. The key areas of application for conveying equipment are durable goods industry, non durable goods industry and capital intensive industry. In addition, the market for conveying equipment can also be classified as conventional and automated conveyors both of which can be further segmented into bulk handling and unit handling. The parts and attachments required for maintenance of conveyors also comprise of conveying equipment.
Unit handling equipment was the largest product segment and accounted for more than 44% in 2011, signifying the substantial need of such conveying equipment in different industries. The demand for bulk handling equipment varies from one industry to another; however due to its limited application, the global bulk handling market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.8% from 2012 and 2018. With increasing industrialization, the market for parts and attachments is slated to remain highly attractive and is expected to exceed USD 8,235 million by 2018.
