Rubber conveyor belt market size

Robust growth of mining sector to boost rubber conveyor belt market forecast

Posted on Updated on

Global rubber conveyor belt market will grow substantially in the years to come mainly due to widespread demand in the mining sector. Ease and convenience of these belts in transportation of bulk materials make them best-suited for a range of open pit and underground mining applications. These belts offer excellent power saving capabilities and can efficiently transfer materials over short, medium as well as long distances, even across topographically difficult terrains with steep angles.The anti-abrasive, heat-resistant, flame-resistant and oil-resistant characteristics of rubber conveyor belts make them suitable for long-distance coal conveying. A growing global population along with robust economic growth is leading to increased utilization of resources such as coal, iron ore and copper, in turn fostering the growth of the global mining sector.

The costs for setting up of rubber conveyor belts in a mine or a plant are a considerably high. Moreover, high maintenance and replacement costs associated with these belts may slightly impede the industry growth in the coming years. However, the fact that these belts substantially reduce labor and transportation costs will present favorable opportunities for conveyor belt manufacturers worldwide.

Global rubber conveyor belt industry share is segmented into textile reinforced belts, steel reinforced belts, and solid woven belts, among others based on materials. Textile reinforced rubber conveyor belts are further classified into performance textiles and commodity textiles. These belts offer excellent dimensional stability and have low moisture absorption.

Textile reinforced belt segment was valued at more than USD 3 billion in 2018. Nylon and polyester blends are generally used to manufacture textile reinforced belt carcasses. This helps them achieve exceptional abrasion and fatigue resistance and ensure high strength and durability.

On the basis of application, rubber conveyor belt industry share is classified into light weight, medium weight, and heavy weight. Rubber conveyor belts used for light weight applications generally have lower tensile strengths. These belts facilitate transportation of lightweight materials within a plant, production or a mining facility. Light weight rubber conveyor belt market size is estimated to register a CAGR of more than 3% over 2019-2026.

Rubber conveyor belts are deployed across mining, metal processing, power generation, cement manufacturing, and recycling, among few other end-users. The mining sector is further segmented into coal, metals and others. Mining industry captured over 41% share of global rubber conveyor belt market during 2018 and will continue to be the largest end-user over the forecast timeline.

North America rubber conveyor belt industry will garner revenues in excess of USD 1.5 billion by 2026. The presence of several prominent mining companies in the region will open up promising opportunities for regional manufacturers. The U.S. is also one of the leading mining countries in the world with an extensive range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals which will complement the regional outlook.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to account for a major share of global rubber conveyor belt market forecast. This can be largely attributed to rapid growth of mining, manufacturing, power generation, and recycling industries in the region. Europe will likely record slightly slower growth rate compared to other regions mainly due to increased adoption of renewable energy sources for power generation.
