There is a vast variety of conveyor systems is available in the market to fulfill various needs of different industries.
Conveyor systems market in Europe is expected to exhibit moderate growth in the years to come. Growth of conveyor systems is mainly driven by the advantages offered by it against traditional bulk handling practice. Conveyor systems provide end users with reliable and safe transport of materials from one workstation to another. Increasing use at airports across Europe is driving demand for conveyor systems. Use of conveyor systems allow the end used to cut down unnecessary processes involved in material shifting and to eliminate the idle time in carrying material between two assembly points. However, major challenge for this industry is the technical problems associated with their continuous operations along with high capital expenditure and maintenance cost.
Conveyor components, bulk handling systems and unit handling systems are the major product segments of this market. Unit handling systems dominated the conveyor systems market in Europe with around 39% share in the total market in 2014. Strong demand for unit handling systems in the market can be attributed to the various advantages associated with it such as uniformity in material handling and storage operations that facilitates proper storage planning and packaging of units. However, conveyor components segment is expected to exhibit fastest growth during the forecast period.
Roller, belt, overhead, pallet, etc. are major types of conveyor systems available in the market. The chain conveyor is the most commonly used conveyor systems. Key end-user segments served by the conveyor systems include retail, food & beverage, aviation, and others (automotive and airport baggage-handling). Assembly line, paint shop, and body shop are key application segments of conveyor systems in the automotive industry. While, in retail sector it helps reducing errors in the manual handling of distribution and warehousing, sorting, cross-docking, and distribution. Thus, these factors in the conveyor system are expected to drive the growth of retail application sector market.
Growth of automotive, food and beverages, retail and aviation industry in the region is expected to trigger the further growth of the conveyor systems market. Germany, UK and France dominated the Europe conveyor systems market in region. However, Eastern Europe is also expected to exhibit growth in demand for conveyor systems.
