Belt type conveyor is estimated to dominate the airport conveyor market during the forecast period


The increasing passenger traffic at airports has accentuated the need for expansion, modernization, and development of new airports. Asia has 20-23 airports planned to be completed by 2020. For instance, the Beijing Daxing International Airport (China) is currently under construction and is expected to functional by 2019. The new airport plans to have a total of 7 runways in the future to accommodate 620,000 flights and 100 million passengers each year. This will boost the demand for the conveyor system in the airport industry. Belt type of conveyors is widely used in airports as they are easy to install and require little maintenance. Due to these benefits, the belt is expected to be the largest and fastest-growing market for the conveyor system. Expansion of existing airports and the development of new airports will drive the Asian airport conveyor system market.

Crescent conveyor type to be the fastest-growing market for conveyor system

Crescent conveyor type is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Crescent types of conveyors are made of one or more layers of material and run in an endless loop. They are easy to maintain and suitable for linear running. Crescent conveyor types are mainly used in warehousing and distribution (retail) and help in better handling of a variety of packages and material types. The growth of e-commerce in developing industries would increase the requirement of warehouses, which in turn would increase the demand for crescent type conveyors.


Airport to be the fastest-growing segment in the conveyor system market, by industry

The airport conveyor system market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for the conveyor system in the airport industry is influenced by an increase in the number of terminal expansions, a growing number of airports, a rise in passenger traffic, and the increasing necessity for efficient transportation of baggage. With the increase in urbanization and disposable income, many people now prefer to travel by airways to save time, thereby increasing passenger traffic in airports. According to IATA, the passenger traffic at airports across developing and developed countries are estimated to increase in the coming years. Increased passenger traffic would increase the demand for baggage handling and checking facilities, which in turn would increase the demand for conveyors at airports. The Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest market share for the conveyor system in airports due to the increased passenger traffic in countries such as China, India, and others.

Warehouse and distribution is expected to be the largest market for conveyor system


The study considers retail warehouse & distribution centers. Growing demand for the e-commerce industry (with increases in online retail sales) is one of the major drivers for the growth of the conveyor system market for the warehouse & distribution industry. For example, Amazon has expanded its warehousing, in terms of square feet, at a growth rate of 35% from 2007 to 2017. The growth of the e-commerce industry can also be seen in developing countries. According to JLL India, the warehousing sector is expected to see an investment of INR 43,000 crore by 2020. The market growth in this sector can be attributed to the increase in purchasing power, lifestyle changes, growing working class, and relaxation in government regulations such as FDI (Foreign Direct Investment). These factors have fueled the growth of supermarket/hypermarket chains and distribution centers, thus, fueling the demand for new warehouses and distribution centers. The growth can also be attributed to the huge demand for packaged food, automotive, and other consumer goods, particularly in the Asia Pacific and North America.
