Regional Analysis of Conveyor System Market
From the regional perspective, Europe held the third-largest conveyor system market share in 2022. In terms of production, automobiles, rail, marine, chemical processing, aerospace equipment, machinery, food, and pharmaceutical goods are the key products manufactured by Europe. For the efficient production and supply of these products, the automotive, aerospace, food & beverages, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries in the region need advanced material-handling equipment. In contrast to old bulk handling practices, conveyor systems allow users to divert their resource allocation focus from unnecessary processes; this enables them to cut excessive costs incurred by traditional material-handling processes while saving the time spent on transporting materials between two assembly destinations. Gebhardt European Conveyor Systems, STB Engineering, BEUMER Maschinenfabrik GmbH, TMT spol, VIGAN Engineering S.A, and MODU Systems Europe Limited are among the key companies offering material handling equipment, including industrial conveyors. Moreover, BEUMER Group developed hybrid conveyor technology for port terminals in April 2022. Taking benefit of troughed overland belt conveyors and pipe conveyors, the company’s new U-Shape conveyor facilitates efficient and environmentally friendly operations at port terminals. The troughed belt conveyors are ideal for very large volumes and coarse materials.
Product development strategies by European companies are projected to continue and make Europe a significant conveyor system market share holder.
