The rubber conveyor belts offer cost effectiveness as it minimizes various labor-oriented processes. All rubber conveyor belts comprise of two basic elements i.e., central resistant carcass and top & bottom rubber covers. The central resistant carcass provides extensive mechanical properties such as elongations and tensile strength. Whereas the rubber covers defends these carcasses in order to deliver long life and safety under harsh working conditions.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the business process functions of several industries across the globe. Lockdown enforced in several countries to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is likely to have an adverse impact on several end-user industries. The declined sales of rubber conveyor solutions have adversely impacted the conveyor market demand during the first quarter of 2020. According to the Q1 2020 report of Continental Corporation, the sales of ContiTech division were lower by 3.3% compared to Q1 2019.

The presence of several conveyor belt manufacturing facilities in the European region and an exponential rise in COVID-19 cases in Europe have adversely affected the overall industry growth. The major end-users of the rubber conveyor belt market, such as mining and general manufacturing, among others, have witnessed a major blow to their business. The general manufacturing and mining sectors were at a standstill in most of the countries across the globe, thereby substantially affecting the overall rubber conveyor belt demand in 2020.

Tremendous competition in manufacturing and mining industries

Heavy competition and industrial operation surge in the manufacturing, power generation, and mining industries is one of the major factors driving the widespread consumption of the rubber conveyor belts. These heavy industries to survive the intense competition rely on advanced technologies and practices to escalate its productivity incurring minimum time, cost and labor. Increasing infrastructural and construction activities especially in the developing countries is also boosting the rubber conveyor belt market.

The rubber conveyor belts are used to transfer different forms of materials from one place to another for various end use industries. It is helpful in reducing the material handling problems and with this the product can be easily transferred to desired location without any loss of material. The product also helps in transporting raw materials to different processes or equipments and to take the processed material or final product to next destination. Rubber conveyor belts are proven quite effective in reducing the operation time or production time in all end use industries.

Increasing industrial development activities and a decent growth in mining sector of emerging economies such as India, China, Indonesia, Brazil, etc. are the prime aspects influencing the usage of rubber conveyor belts.

Commodity textile reinforced conveyor belts will continue to lead as the major material segment

Textile reinforced conveyor belts are majorly utilized materials applied in the rubber conveyor belts due to excessive use of belts made from polyester and nylon carcass in industries ranging from mining, cement manufacturing, recycling, power generation, metal processing and others. Textile reinforced are further categorized into performance textiles and commodity textiles.

Commodity textiles belts are most popularly used owing to the high impact resistance, abrasion resistance, superior mechanical properties and low cost. However, it is poised to grow at a sluggish rate led by its poor dimensional stability and lower resistance to moisture. Although, these are ideal for transporting materials that are within a facility or manufacturing plant. Increasing requirement for better and fast material handling solutions will likely give an up thrust to the overall rubber conveyor belt market demand.

Heavy weight conveyor belts continue to hold top spot in

Heavy weight conveyor belts are primarily used where high impact durability and belt strength is required such as in hard rock mining and surface or underground mining, where a high tonnage of abrasive material needs to be transported quickly and efficiently. Mines operate 24/7 and any type of downtime is expensive, so rapid service and replacements are essential. Improving mining techniques, commercialization and allocation of lands for mining in most of the developing nations along with investments done by governments in infrastructural developments is sure to escalate the product usage.

Power generation industry to show high consumption patterns

Power generation application of rubber conveyor belt market is expected to observe 6.4% CAGR through 2026. Rubber conveyor belts are used for continuous transportation of coal from unloading points to storage sites or from storage sites to boilers in thermal power plants. According to International Energy Agency, global electricity demand was increased by 4% in 2018 and electricity generation from coal and gas-fired power plants also increased significantly. Worldwide power consumption is increasing on account of rising population and favorable economic trends, that is projected to fuel the conveyor belts usage in power generation organizations.
