Screw Conveyor Market: Introduction

  • A screw conveyor is used to transport bulk materials from one part of a process to another. A screw conveyor can be used as a collector, distributor, feeder, or mixer. In general, the function of a screw conveyor is to push material as the screw revolves in a fixed pipe, trough, or housing. The equipment features the shape of a typical screw, wherein the auger is held by bearings on both ends. The simple design of a screw conveyor enables its application in transportation of grains, powders, granules, and flakes.

Key Drivers of the Global Screw Conveyor Market

  • Rising demand for product mixing equipment across the agricultural industry is identified as a key market driver. Further, the rising consumption of fruits, cereals, and grains is supporting the need for advanced equipment such as screw conveyors to meet the demands of the growing population. Manufacturers are constantly upgrading the technology of screw conveyors with exceptional features such as energy efficiency, easy handling, durability, and portability.
  • In addition, screw conveyors are largely used in food and beverage processing companies for mixing of the raw materials and to deliver the material from one workstation to another. Food and beverage companies working with a large proportion of powdered ingredients, require a mechanized conveying system for safe and fast movement of raw ingredients throughout the production process. Screw conveyors are widely used by companies involved in food powder processing, raw ingredients processing, ready-to-eat food manufacturing, brewing, and dairy products production. Moreover, key manufactures are increasingly designing screw conveyors that meet FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) sanitation standards.

Screw Conveyor Market – Key Segments

  • The global screw conveyor market can be segmented based on product, rotation capacity, end-use industry, and region. Based on product, the screw conveyor market can be classified into horizontal screw conveyor, shaft less screw conveyor, inclined screw conveyor, and vertical screw conveyor. Horizontal screw conveyors are widely preferred for maximum trough capacity and simple design. Based on rotation capacity, the screw conveyor market can be categorized into less than 45 RPM, 45-105 RPM, 105-165 RPM, and greater than 165 RPM. Rotation capacity is an important specification and determines the overall performance of screw conveyors. Based on end-use industry, the market is segmented into metals & mining, agriculture, food & beverage, chemicals, and others. Demand for screw conveyors is anticipated to expand at the highest CAGR in the food & beverage industry, during the forecast period.
