Covid-19 pandemic resulted in declining the demand for portable conveyor belts in 2020. As production and supply chains were disrupted, the sales level went extremely down which forced the manufacturers to suspend their operations globally.

Local as well as leading players suffered heavy losses due to suspension in their operations whereas in 2021, the restrictions have been lifted up enabling the production centers to restart their operations. In 2021, business firms have shifted to online platforms for selling the conveyor belts through online modes creating an ease for the customers. Online modes are enabling the firms to overcome the losses suffered in the past and to boost the demand throughout the world.

What are Portable Conveyor Belt Manufacturers Doing?

Some of the known corporations like Continental Conveyor Corporation, Bastian Solutions, Conveyor Systems Limited, Dematic Corporation, ATS Automation Tooling System Incorporation, Invata Intralogistics Corporation, Daifuku Corporation and Tsubaki Corporation are paying attention to introduce automation in their operations and digitalize their working patterns to increase their sales in the current condition.

These companies have made significant investments in technological developments, hiring professionals with expertise skill and knowledge, establishing research and development centers, diversifying product portfolios, merging with known brands, acquisitions, sales agreements, product innovations and diversifications etc for strengthening their positions and market share globally.

Online selling has become a recent trend in this market as in Covid-19 condition, digital platforms are highly preferred by the leading companies to deliver their offerings easily to their customers. Allied Conveyor Belts, Fives Group and FMC Technologies are among the key players selling through e-commerce.

Trending Industry 4.0 to Impact the Adoption of Portable Conveyor Belts

The manufacturing sector has witnessed a paradigm shift with the implementation of Industry 4.0 across various industrial sectors. With the growing trend of automation, manufacturing units have implemented Industry 4.0 standards to reduce machine downtime, reduce labor inefficiencies, enhance production, relatively reduce ROI (return on investment) duration, and more importantly achieve high quality manufacturing. In all automation processes, material handling through conveyor systems has been a pivotal factor. Portable conveyor belts are a key element across automated factories, which are used in material transportation, used as a buffer in between processes, and metering out products.

With Industry 4.0 in its growth phase, the demand for portable conveyor belts has dramatically increased across various industries such as textile manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage processing, and the mining industry, to name a few.

Being a critical component of smart automation systems, and with advances in technology based on Industry 4.0 standards, developments in portable conveyor belts have made them highly efficient, with electronic actuation and self-tuning, along with predictive maintenance with the help of machine learning algorithms and with track and trace. This is expected to intensify the demand for portable conveyor belts during the forecast period.

Demand for Mixed Model Assembly Growing

Increasing complexities in production systems have accelerated the demand for conveyors belts. Currently, the growing demand for mixed model assembly lines, as they offer high processing speeds, is generating good opportunities for portable conveyor systems, simultaneously making it challenging for engineers.

In addition, the ongoing drive towards high throughput and flexible conveyor systems is expected to fuel the adoption of portable conveyor belts in the coming years. Manufacturers of portable conveyor belts are integrating smart components such as sensors, controllers, motors, and drives to enable new capabilities and features such as controlled motion and efficient product delivery without stoppages.

These new portable conveyor belts have new features and abilities such as tracing and tracking of units for proper processing, scaling up production activities, merge and diverge products from various paths to enable unique process sequences, and parallel processing and supporting rapid changeover times.

This has supported the implementation of the mixed model assembly in manufacturing units, thus accelerating production, ultimately pushing up profits. This new norm of mixed model assembly is expected to provide an impetus to the adoption of portable conveyor belts across the manufacturing sector.

Development of Telescopic Portable Conveyor Belts to Auger Well

The development of telescopic portable conveyor belts has made it possible to carry out various functions, including handling of large volumes at the required speed. Manufacturers are introducing telescopic portable conveyor belts that are suited for carrying out various operations across industries.

By shifting the position of the telescopic portable conveyor belt away from the door, it can give enough space for the convenient passing of forklift trucks to move into the trucks and trailers across the leveler.

Portable telescopic conveyor belts offer flexibility, especially during dual-purpose loading. Caljan’s telescopic portable conveyor belt comes with a counterweight fitted on its rear side to prevent tipping.

Moreover, it can simply be plugged into a regular household power point or small generator, as it runs on 120V motors. High structural strength, light weight, and controlled power consumption make it a vital component of any manufacturing plant. Other key participants in the global portable conveyor belt market include

  • Monaflex
  • ContiTech AG
  • Dorner Conveyors
  • Coveya Ltd.
  • Redline Systems Inc.
  • Asmech Systems
  • Huzhou Maolian Machinery Co., Ltd.
