Conveyor Belts Global Market Size, Status, Analysis and Forecast 2025


Procurement Outlook

A conveyor system is an efficient and quick mechanical handling and transporting apparatus. It is responsible for automatically transporting packages and materials within a pre-specified route or area. The entire system of conveyor belts helps minimize human error, lower handling risks at the workplace, and reduce the cost of labor. One of the most important components of this conveyor system is its belts. Packages are loaded onto the conveyor belt and it is these belts that move in a predefined direction moving the materials for transportations along with it.

Demand Outlook

The global conveyor belts market was valued at USD 4.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 3.36% to reach USD 5.3 billion by 2025. The market for conveyor belts is driven by both new installations as well as replacements. The market for conveyor belts can be segregated into three categories. They are flat belts, modular belts, cleated belts. Of these, flat belts are the most popular options opted by the end-users of conveyor belts. The steady growth of urbanization feeds to the growing need for automated transportation. This is one of the driving reasons for the growth of conveyor belts.

Cost Drivers

The projected demand for conveyor belts is on a constant rise and for most markets, the several markets in the APAC, the supply of conveyor belts are lower than the supply of conveyor belts. This, in itself, would push the cost of conveyor belts and drive the value market of the product. Additionally, the cost of rubber has witnessed an upward trend. Since natural rubber makes up a significant cost of the conveyor belts, the rising costs of rubber result in the cost of conveyor belts increasing. This, in addition to the fact that the supply of conveyor belts is yet to meet the demand, solidifies the rising cost of conveyor belts.


For the end-users of conveyor belts, there are several challenges related to the maintenance of conveyor belts. The belts are prone to wear and tear from the abrasion of materials and goods that it transports. The cost of periodic maintenance is high and irrespective of servicing and maintenance, the lifetime of conveyor belts is short (usually 5-8 years). Therefore, periodic replacements need to be conducted as well. Although the cost of replacement may be severe, stringent safety regulations for a safe and clean environment make it necessary for the end-users to replace the conveyor belts.

Supply Chain

The key manufacturers for conveyor belts are ContiTech AG, Yokohoma Rubber Co, Bridgestone Corporation, Techniks, Fenner Group Holdings Ltd, Elastomerik Belts Private Limited, Continental Belting Private Limited, Sempertrans Conveyor Belt Solutions GmbH, Siban Peosa SA, Bando Chemical Industries, Ltd, etc. The conveyor belt market has a mix of global and regional players. However, the market is consolidated with the top 10 players occupying more than 65%-70% of the market.

Raw materials account for 70%-75% of the total cost of manufacturing a conveyor belt. Among the raw materials, natural rubber and galvanized steel rope are two of the largest cost components. Together, they make up over 30% of the total cost of manufacturing.
