The global pneumatic conveying systems market size was worth USD 23.27 billion in 2017. The market is witnessing a tremendous impetus from the increasing significance of automation in the manufacturing sector thereby giving rise to an escalated demand for conveying systems and material handling equipment. Furthermore, sustained developments in material handling and conveyance technologies have assisted the pneumatic conveying system market to grow rapidly.
Pneumatic conveying systems are used to carry or transport powders or dry bulk materials from a source to a destination with the help of a gas. The bulk granules or materials are transferred via an enclosed pipeline with the help of the combined force of pressure and the gas used (commonly air). Air movers such as vacuums or positive displacement blowers generate pressure and air flow which is then used to convey the materials. Therefore, by manipulating and controlling the airflow and pressure differential, the system can effectively convey materials over certain distances.
The global Pneumatic Conveying Systems market is projected to reach $ 8,401 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.19%
The emergence of industrial automation across the globe is one of the primary global pneumatic conveying systems market trends. Well designed and manufactured pneumatic conveying systems are more cost-effective and reasonable as compared to the other mechanical systems as they are completely enclosed, offer easy modifications, and can be controlled reasonably. These systems are much more environmentally sound compared to the mechanical systems as their enclosed characteristic keeps the materials to be conveyed clean and protected from dangerous, foreign matters.
Dilute phase conveying occupied more than 70% of the global pneumatic conveying systems market share in 2017. Dilute phase pneumatic conveying is the process of pulling (vacuum) or pushing (pressure) particles that are suspended in the air from one location to the other. The air-suspended particles are shifted constantly at low pressure and high velocity. Dilute phase pneumatic conveying systems have gained a larger share of the market as it has proven to be ideal for the transportation of a wide range of dry bulk materials in a cost-effective and simple manner. Pneumatic conveying systems are widely used in the food industry. The dilute phase conveying systems are ideal for conveying flours, specialty chemicals, resins and compounds, ground feeds, and pelletized and granular products. This is expected to drive the growth of this segment during the forecast period.
The global pneumatic conveying systems market share was majorly dominated by Europe and North America together contributing to approximately 55% of the sales in 2017. Europe generated the highest revenue in this year owing to the tremendous level of automation that has been carried out in industries such as the food & drinks, and the pharmaceutical sector. The food & beverages industry, which is the largest manufacturing sector in the European Union in terms of turnover, is the major driver of the pneumatic conveying systems market. Europe being a net exporter of food and drinks products makes sustained technological additions to the processing plants, which is anticipated to drive the forward momentum of the pneumatic conveying system market during the forecast period.
The major players operating within the global pneumatic conveying systems market are engaged in the sustained development of cost-efficient conveying systems which transporting materials with least damage or spillage. For instance, Kongskilde, a U.S. based manufacturer, introduced Component Vacuum Loader (CVL 700), for efficiently conveying plastic items. The air-based conveying system streamlines the internal conveying of plastic components used for production, storage or packaging processes. The handling is carried out without the intervention of a human. The CVL 700 system separates the items from the air and gently conveys the components to the final destination. The bottlenecks in transporting the materials are removed, as the CVL 700 system saves manual transportation and internal handling. Therefore, the continued introduction of ingenious products is expected to drive the growth of the global pneumatic conveying systems market during the foreseeable years.
