Pneumatic Conveying System Market Trends




  • Extensive research and development (R&D) activities are driving the market growth.




Market CAGR for pneumatic conveying systems is driven by the recent development of dense phase pneumatic conveying, which uses lower air velocities and higher material-to-air ratios to minimize material degradation, reduce energy consumption, and enable longer conveying distances, positively influencing the market growth. Furthermore, the introduction of vacuum conveying systems that create a pressure differential, allowing efficient and gentle material transfer, contributes to the market growth. The utilization of modular and flexible designs that allow quick installation, easy expansion, and reconfiguration as production needs change is propelling the pneumatic conveying system market revenue.


Additionally, pneumatic conveying systems are extensively used to transport ores and minerals from mines to processing plants or storage facilities. They can handle various materials, including coal, limestone, iron ore, copper concentrate, and other bulk minerals. Furthermore, pneumatic conveying systems incorporate effective dust collection mechanisms, including filters, cyclones, and scrubbers, to capture and control dust particles during material transfer, which aids in improving air quality, mitigating health risks, and ensuring compliance with environmental regulations. Apart from this, they are utilized in underground mining operations for ventilation and exhaust purposes to transport fresh air, remove toxic gases, and control temperature in tunnels, shafts, or confined spaces.


Furthermore, technological advancement in the field of pneumatic conveyance and the availability of developed products equipped with intelligent control technology is leading to enhanced uptake of these systems. The utilization of pneumatic conveying systems in material handling enterprises has also been on the rise, which is poised to bolster the growth of the pneumatic conveying systems market over the forecast period. Pneumatic conveyors are used in various industries to expand output, cut down on production stoppages, guarantee cost savings, and enhance product quality in areas such as packaging, coating, and final product quality. Pneumatic conveyors are more widely used across various end-use sectors due to these advantages.


With significant global capital spending expected to come in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, the chemical industry is likely to witness significant growth. The government of the UAE is concentrating on having a higher share of the manufacturing sector in its country's GDP. With its shrinking prospects for investment in the oil & gas industry, the country plans to diversify its business to other business segments, such as manufacturing. For instance, the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 aims to enhance the non-oil sector by more than 7.5% annually to help the UAE achieve a neutral non-oil trade balance. This move will create an opportunity for the pneumatic conveying systems market.


Pneumatic Conveying System Market Segment Insights:


Pneumatic Conveying System Type Insights


The Pneumatic Conveying System Market segmentation, based on type, includes positive pressure conveying, vacuum pressure conveying, and combined conveying. The positive pressure conveying segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue (2.19 Billion). In developing economies, category growth is driven by the ability of optimistic pressure systems to work at high pressures, corresponding to other types of conveying systems. They are appropriate for conveying heavy materials over long distances, driving segment growth. However, vacuum pressure conveying is the fastest-growing category owing to its ability to use a vacuum to position the material on the desired stack point, along with its ability to convey materials to a single destination from numerous sources.


Pneumatic Conveying System Operation Insights


The Pneumatic Conveying System Market segmentation, based on operation, includes dense-phase conveying and dilute-phase conveying. The dilute-phase conveying category generated the most income (70.4%) as dilute-phase conveying systems are widely utilized for incessant conveying in some enterprises, wherein neglect and abrasion of the materials are not primary concerns. However, dense-phase conveying is the fastest-growing category owing to the low speed and air volumes at which these systems operate; they avert fragile textiles and mixtures from smashing down, making them essential in large industries.
