The Global Heavy Weight Conveyor Belts Market size is projected to reach USD 3.60 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2021-2028. The mining application segment dominated this market with over 40% share in 2028.
Heavyweight conveyor belts are used to transport bulk materials like coal, minerals, and ore in an open-cut mine. The belt is not flat but has a 45-60 degree angle on the sides with carriages running on rails. These types of belts are usually made up of multiply fabric or steel cord material for durability due to rough usage conditions. The belts are made with a strong weave or mesh that resists sagging and distorts.
They are the most economical conveyor belts and cost less to maintain than lightweight belts. The material used in heavyweight belting is stronger which helps them resist abrasion from rocks, other particles, or even they themselves that would otherwise wear down lighter-weight types of fabric. These types of belts have a longer life and are not as prone to wearing out. As they have a stronger material, heavier weights can be carried and moved smoother than lighter weight belts. They provide greater friction which assists with traction when traversing rough terrain or lifting heavy objects from the ground. A heavyweight belt is also easier on machine bearings because of its greater thickness.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Multiply Fabric Conveyor Belts, Steel Cord Conveyor Belts, Solid Woven Conveyor Belts.
Multiply Fabric Conveyor Belts is a type of belt that has more than one layer, which is typically made from fabric. Multiply Fabric Conveyor Belt is mainly used in the feeder of coal mining. It transports materials from a higher level to lower levels with gravity and can be installed on sloped mine faces. It is less expensive than other types of heavy-weight belts and more versatile in design. Moreover, it is flexible so it can be used to carry a variety of materials, not just those that are solid or have high friction surfaces. The disadvantages of Multiply Fabric Conveyor Belts are that they are more susceptible to wear and tear than other types of belts. They can also be more expensive due to the fabric being woven in layers, making it difficult to manufacture.
Steel cord conveyor belts have steel cords that form loops that are then woven together. Steel cord conveyor belts are not only used in mining applications but also in the coal industry for transporting mined materials to a transportation system that will transport them out of the mine tunnel or underground shaft. This belt is typically more expensive than a multiply fabric belt, but is also more durable and offers better performance. The disadvantage of steel cord conveyor belts is that they cannot be used when the load to be carried needs to change direction.
Solid woven conveyor belts come with an outer layer of heavyweight fabric and an inner layer made up of two pieces that are woven together. This belt is designed to carry heavy loads at low speeds under moderate temperatures, making it ideal for use in construction applications where the load will not change directions frequently. Solid woven conveyor belts are more durable than a multiply fabric belt and offer better performance. They are also less expensive, easier to install and maintain. The disadvantage associated with solid woven conveyor belts is that they can break down when used in high-temperature environments or application settings.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Mining, Industrial, Construction, Transportation, Oil & Gas, Others.
In mining, conveyor belts are used to transport raw material around sites to sort stockpiles before they go to the processing area and then to take processed material away for selling. Typical conveyor belt systems are used in mining which includes combine belts, slat belts, and other various types of specialized equipment designed for specific needs that may include height adjustment or special capacities such as heavy-duty construction grade materials.
In industrial applications, conveyor belts are used in heavy-duty applications to transfer small and large loads. In some cases, a belt is installed on an incline so that gravity assists the movement of material down the line. Conveyor belts can also be found in a typical industry such as chocolate making where they move a variety of ingredients to and from cooking pots. The use of heavyweight in these industries is an integral part of the running process as they play a key role in transporting supplies such as coal or iron ore while supporting the weight load that would otherwise crush the infrastructure.
Heavyweight conveyor belts are used in the construction industry for multiple tasks, including sanding and polishing of concrete. In order to move materials such as cement or gravel along the belt, a system of pulleys is installed at either end which provides power from one pulley to the next. The heavy-duty fabric does not wear out like other fabrics and the design of the belt does not require a center beam. Their heavy-duty nature makes these belts ideal for use in mining where they are often used to transport minerals from one point to another, as well as transporting equipment such as ore trucks or other machinery across large distances. They also play an integral part in industrial construction projects due to their ability to carry heavy loads.
They are also used in the transportation industry, where they are often found on trucks and trains as a way of transporting multiple goods simultaneously without them being damaged by vibrations and other factors like dirt or water from getting into contact with the load. Heavyweight conveyor belts can be made for carrying either one type of product or multiple types of products at the same time.
The heavyweight conveyor belts are also used in the oil and gas industry for carrying different components to a drilling rig, such as drill pipe sections, valves, or other equipment required during exploration activities. In fact, they are often seen being utilized on rigs that have been designed specifically with them in mind, while heavyweight conveyor belts can also be seen on rigs that have been retro-fitted with them.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa.
The North American region is considered to be one of the most lucrative markets in terms of revenue. In this regard, it accounts for a significant market share in heavy-duty conveyor belts and will continue to do so. The aforementioned increase can be attributed primarily to increasing demand from mining industries.
The Latin American region is also projected to show an increase in demand for heavy-duty conveyor belts, though it will not be as substantial as the North American regions due to its smaller population and economy. However, this can be attributed primarily to increased demand from oil & gas industries, which are rapidly expanding their operations at a rapid pace.
The European region is the second-fastest-growing market in terms of revenue over the course of the next decade. This can be attributed to its rapidly expanding economy and because it has been one of the most prominent markets for heavy-duty conveyor belts historically, accounting for a significant share. The anticipated increase in demand will be driven by increased demand from the mining and industrial sectors, which have a substantially higher share in Europe as compared to other regions.
If we take a closer look at the Middle East & African countries, it is evident that this region will be one of the fastest-growing markets in terms of revenue. This can primarily be attributed to increased demand from the mining and construction industries. As such, these regions should not only focus on production but also needs to expand their distribution network by investing in new technologies such as RFID and GPS.
