Drum Melter Market: Introduction

A drum melter is a device used for melting large amounts of polyolefin (POR) and polyurethane (PUR) hot melt adhesive, sealants, butylene, and traditional hot melt adhesives. Drum melters are used when an adhesive supply unit is unable to melt the glue in drums or liquefy required amount of adhesive in time. A variety of melt plates are used, depending on the required melting capacity and the heat conductivity of the melting stock. The drum hot melt spraying machine provides an ideal solution to smaller-scale applications of adhesives (such as PUR). Compared with the traditional tank melter, the drum melting machine melts adhesives in a gradual manner, supplying fluid adhesive of a specific amount decided by real production needs.

Key Drivers of the Drum Melter Market

Increase in use of drum melters in various applications such as automotive & transportation, non-woven industry (diapers, adult incontinence products, sanitary napkins, and other one-time use products), paper & packaging, woodworking, building & construction, leather & footwear, and label manufacture is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. The automotive industry requires hot-melt adhesives for a host of applications including affixing cushioning and insulating materials, fixing cables in roof liners, bonding door sill protectors, joining headlight and other plastic parts, and wheel covers. Therefore, the automotive industry is driving the drum melter market.

Unique design of drum melters creating opportunities in the market

The melter lessens adhesive loss and minimizes disposal costs by up to 10% compared to conventional drum melters. Employing a unique design, the melter turns 55-gallon (200 liter) drums 180 degrees to melt and pump adhesive, virtually eliminating the “cookie” of adhesive commonly left at the bottom of the drum. In addition to processing over 99% of the entire adhesive in the bulk containers, the advanced melter has a melt rate up to 20% faster than conventional bulk melters. A Profibus interface allows easy integration into existing manufacturing operations. These factors create new opportunities for the drum melter market.

High Production Cost may restrain the Drum Melter Market

Increased production expense is foreseen to limit the growth of the global drum melter market in the future. Further, changes in material cost are likely to hamper the market. Strict regulations & hazards associated with the use of drum melters are likely to affect the market. Such factors may hamper the growth of the drum melter market.

North America the dominant market

The U.S and Canada are the dominant countries in the drum melter market. Intelligent integration of components is a recent trend driving the market in the U.S and Canada. Application of drum melters in industries such as automotive & transportation has created new opportunities for the product in the market.
