The global conveyor system market size is projected to reach USD 10.6 billion by 2025, from an estimated value of USD 8.8 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 3.9%. Higher adoption of automation processes in various end-use industries and rising demand for handling larger volumes of goods are the driving factors that are expected to boost the conveyor system market. The constant R&D efforts by conveyor system manufacturers to modernize the industry will offer favorable opportunities for manufacturers and propel the automated conveyor systems in the coming years.
• By industry, retail & distribution is expected to be the largest market owing to increase in e-commerce

The retail warehouse & distribution industry is expected to offer the highest demand for conveyor systems during the forecast period.Market growth in this sector can be attributed to the increase in on-line shopping, lifestyle changes, increasing working class, and relaxation in government regulations such as Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), which have fueled the growth of supermarket/hypermarket chains along with distribution centers, thus, fueling the demand for new warehouses and distribution centers.

The retail industry uses conveyors in various operations, from the billing counter to the distribution center.For instance, a distribution center which serves hundreds of stores in its vicinity requires error-free sorting.

Here, conveyor systems help streamline the process and minimize errors.E-commerce and retail are expected to be the fastest-growing markets for material handling.

To meet the rising demand for online shopping, Amazon.com, Inc. plans to develop approximately 1,000 small delivery & distribution hubs in the US. In terms of conveyor technology, the belt type is expected to lead the market during the forecast period, while the pallet type conveyor is projected to grow at the highest CAGR.

By type, belt conveyor is projected to be the largest and one of the fastest growing markets during the forecast period
Factors such as competition and globalization incentivize players to innovate on more light-duty and energy-efficient belt types.Rising process automation is reflected in the increased demand for light-duty belt designs.

Medium-duty conveyors are witnessing rise in applications owing to a boost in the manufacturing sector.The belt conveyor is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

Mining, construction, power, and manufacturing industries are the major users of heavy-duty conveyor belts. They handle higher capacity loads at a much lower cost and can cover longer distances.
Europe is projected to be the largest and fastest growing market throughout 2025
Europe is home to leading conveyor system manufacturers such as SSI Schaefer (Germany), Swisslog Holding AG (Switzerland), Fives Group (France), Vanderlande Industries (Netherlands), and Siemens AG (Germany).The end users of conveyors in Europe are Carrefour (France), Aldi (Germany), Edeka (Germany), Metro (Germany), Audi (Germany), Volkswagen (Germany), BMW (Germany), Nestle (Switzerland), and various other industrial players which include various airports across Europe.

The usage of conveyors is a common practice in European countries. Hence, companies can gain traction in this region with the help of innovative technologies that offer additional benefits such as optimum efficiency and higher accuracy, among others.
