Historic to Future Pathway Analysis

The bale gripper is either round or square and all are equipped with high-quality hydraulic cylinders as well as pressure-maintaining valves. While transporting there is no displacement of the bales due to the strong grasping power and arm balancing. It is made from high-quality aluminum alloy which provides strength.

A bale gripper provides the appropriate gripper for the respective size and shape of round or cuboid or similar bales. It is mainly used in light tractors and mini loaders.

  • Short-Term Growth Projection: The bale gripper’s application in waste of hay augments the market’s growth.
  • Medium-Term Growth Projection: Countries with emerging and evolving textile industries coupled with high demand from the agricultural sector to bolster markets’ growth over the projection period.
  • Long-Term Growth Projection: The customization of the bale gripper coupled with the development of advanced machinery to bolster the market’s long-term growth.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the Europe bale gripper market registered a CAGR of 2.7%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 3.5% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Bale gripper market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of bale gripper based on gripper type and the country is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the gripper type segment, the square and rectangular bale gripper sub-segment is estimated to reach a market share of 67.0% in 2023.

“Ease of Transportation of Bales Increases the Demand for the Market”

With the growing population and urbanization, the demand for agricultural sectors is increasing at a rapid pace. Due to this, the cultivation of cereals is increasing and subsequently increases the amount of hay as a result of post-harvesting or clearing out land for sowing. Consequently, the demand for proper handling and transportation of bales of hay offered by bale gripper is increasing and it is estimated that the bale gripper is growing at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period and will reach a valuation of 165.0 million by 2033.

“Limited capacity and risk of accident could challenge the market growth”

While handling the bales there is a maximum chance that serious accidents can happen. For instance, falling from bale stacks, vehicles and machinery, loose bale string, and many more. Furthermore, the typical predicted capacity is sufficient for the present infrastructure or needs. However, as the amount of recycled building material used increases, so will the demand for increased capacity and an increase in the use of bale grippers. In order to acquire significant traction during the forecast period, market players need to focus on the capacity enhancement of the machine.

Country-wise Insights

What are the factors driving the market’s growth across the UK?

The UK's agricultural sector is expected to project high growth opportunities for the market. It is estimated that the market will grow at a CAGR of 2.3% from 2023-2033 and reach US$ 21.0 million in 2023 to US$ 26.4.0 million in 2033.

For instance, in the United Kingdom, the agriculture and farming sector are major sources of supply for the nation's food needs. Approximately 71 percent of the United Kingdom's land surface was utilized for agriculture as of 2020, and the sector's gross value added (GVA) to the economy that year is more than US$ 10.9 billion. This indicates that the flourishing agricultural sector will pave the way for the growing sales of the bale gripper.

Higher machine imports in France to augment the growth of the market

France is the seventh-largest economy in the world and accounts for around one-fifth of the GDP of the Eurozone. France is one of the most significant industrialized nations in Europe, along with Germany. The top import categories into France are industrial machinery and parts.

Additionally, the European Commission anticipates that French equipment investments will increase more quickly than GDP. In order to stay up with automation, new technologies, improved energy efficiency, and stronger security and environmental standards, production methods and equipment are always updated.

The French Association of Mechanical Industries, FIM, anticipates an increase in demand for several machinery subsectors, particularly toolmaking, textiles, and hydraulic and pneumatic machinery in the coming years due to the government's advantageous financing choices. Such factors to bolster bale gripper sales.

Square and Rectangular Bale Gripper witnessing high demand

Since the round bale gripper is also available in the market. However, square and rectangular bale gripper dominated over the other types of bale gripper. The device's arms can pick up bales with a wide range of diameters. The gripper can exit the stack without harming the bales or other materials since the closure and opening processes happen at different speeds. The surface of the device is created to be as smooth as possible. Additionally, this prevents the bales from being torn by the device components and the stack of square and rectangular bales are more stable than those of round bale gripper which further gives a window of opportunity to dominate the market.

Furthermore, a square bale grapple is used to pick up cylindrical and rectangular bales of hay, and other materials from storage, and transfer them from one location to another with proper handling and safety. It is estimated that the market will grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the projected period.

Why is Up to 200 kg gaining traction?

Although bale gripper is often used for a wide range of loading capacity, their operational loading capacity is effective for up to 200 kg by weight. Furthermore, when the loading capacity exceeds the optimum level, the efficiency of the transportation activity marginally decreases. So, in order to maximize efficiency, the optimum loading capacity level must be maintained.

The growing demand across Europe plays a crucial role in the rising demand for bale gripper, Weight type bale gripper market is valued at US$ 56.2 million in 2023 to US$ 77.5 million in 2033 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.3 % over the forecast period, due to the presence of major market players. This, in turn, create immense growth opportunities for the market.
