Accelerated Local Food Production Is Creating Opportunities
Europe, one of the two key regions for growth of agricultural and food grade rubber conveyor belt market, has been the global agricultural hub. The EU has been playing a pivotal role in empowering local producers and farmers through CAP (Common Agricultural Policy). The ultimate objective of promoting local farming activities and supplement the overall food production levels is likely to propel sales of agricultural and food grade rubber conveyor belts in coming years.
Favorable government initiatives, improving food policies, and evolving FDA guidelines, collectively highlight growing significance of food production safety, security, speed, sustainability, efficiency, transport, and logistics across the agricultural and F&B industries. FMI thus expects emergence of a slew of lucrative deployment opportunities for agricultural and food grade rubber conveyor belt manufacturers.
FMI Tracks Competition, Emphasizing Key Developmental Strategies
Leading manufacturers continue to invest in R&D of innovative, high performance materials for belt conveyors, thereby unlocking a heap of application opportunities in the near future. A growing focus of manufacturers on strategic mergers and acquisitions is likely to direct them towards an enhanced portfolio of offerings that intends to capture a larger market share through an extended outreach across the agricultural and food grade rubber conveyor belt landscape.
“Some of the leaders are exclusively strategizing acquisition of prominent Tier 3 players for an improved regional/local foothold in the market,” reports the analyst.
The global market for agricultural and food grade rubber conveyor belt is a highly fragmented landscape, with Tier 3 players holding a major share of the revenue. Looking at the intensity of competition on the global agricultural and food grade rubber conveyor belt landscape, a majority of global as well as regional players are striving to introduce maintenance service packages with an objective to cater to the growing demand for onsite conveyor belts maintenance.
As a typical conveyor belts system has an average life span of four years and requires timely maintenance check for superior performance, a wide scope lies for the incorporation of technologically advanced monitoring systems. Companies are likely to leverage their technical expertise in maintaining a differentiating edge over competition, projects the report.
