Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor Market size is likely to exceed USD 700 million by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The increasing adoption of high-end technologies in the manufacturing sector to maximize productivity will propel the vertical reciprocating conveyor industry growth. The automotive manufacturing sector employs high-performance machinery to ensure zero damage to parts during the material handling process. As manual techniques are prone to errors, vertical conveyors are used to raise or lower products appropriately to desired heights. The manufacturing sector must comply with stringent government regulations to ensure the safety of automobile operators. Manufacturers must ensure that no damage is caused to components, parts, or final assembled products due to mishandling. This will encourage them to adopt vertical reciprocating lifts to ensure safe and reliable movement of heavy and critical parts & components.
The flourishing retail sector in several economies will provide vertical reciprocating conveyor market growth opportunities. For instance, in 2019, China accounted for around 21% of the global retail market, the second-largest market share after the U.S. Online retailers are focusing on modernizing their warehouses to maximize productivity by employing advanced material handling solutions such as conveyors and robots. The implementation of robotics and automated solutions will encourage warehouse operators to implement vertical conveyor lifts that work in conjunction with other material handling equipment.
