What’s Driving the Demand for Open Mesh Conveyor Belt?

Expanding Textile Industry in Europe is Setting Up Growth Steps for the Open Mesh Conveyor Belt Applications.

With the trend advancing, Europe is now the world's second-largest exporter of textiles and apparel. Open mesh conveyor belts are becoming more and more necessary as the textile and apparel industries grow.

In the textile industry, open mesh conveyor belts are used as machines for dyeing, printing, and printing on textiles and silk as well as for drying non-woven fabrics. As a high frequency and UV drier, it also functions as a machine for shrinking fabric for clothing.

The region's need for textiles and consequent demand for open mesh conveyor belts will also increase as Europeans spend more money on clothing.

“Resistance to Extreme Physical Conditions is the Key Feature Driving Product Adoption”

Open-mesh conveyor belt is resistant to temperatures ranging from -140°C to +260°C. As a result, it can export components that would otherwise need to be transported until they reached the proper temperature. By doing this, you may carry them safely and ensure that the required temperature is reached. Due to its ability to increase airflow, wire mesh is ideal for this. Compared to a typical belt, the bottom perforations offer quicker temperature regulation.

Mesh belts may also withstand chemicals, which broadens their use in chemical remedies depending on the composition. They can also remove all types of adhesives, including resins and paint, because they are non-stick and have exceptional flex fatigue resistance. With little wheels, they are also more compactible.

What Open Mesh Conveyor Belt Manufacturers Need to Watch Out for?

“Escalating R&D in Alternative Conveyor Belts, a Threat to the Market”

One of the key domain of open mesh conveyor belt application remains in moving the frozen food or cooking the food on the go. However, increasing stringency in the European laws to maintain certain standards of hygiene has fueled the research on use of closed conveyor belt for moving food items. Closed conveyor belts are covered from the top and hence offer better hygienic environment for the food product conveying. Developments in the aforementioned field thus presents a key challenge for securing domain applications for the open mesh conveyor belt.

Country-wise Insights

Will Germany Lead the Europe Open Mesh Conveyor Belt Market?

With higher population and thus higher demand for food and textile production, Germany offers the most opportunistic market for the open mesh conveyor belt manufacturers. Germany market is expected to fare at a CAGR of 3.5% over 2023-2033.

Germany is one of the most economically developed country in Europe with rapid integration of automation across several production domains. With rapid increase in urbanization, Germany also presents high demand for packed and frozen food manufacturing. All these elements individually contribute to the high demand of open mesh conveyor belt in the country.

Category-wise Insights

What is Lifting the Demand for PTFE Open Mesh Conveyor Belt?

PTFE mesh conveyor belt are made up of PTFE resin coated high quality mesh. The preference for the PTFE coated mesh is driven by its efficient operation at extremes of both chemical and temperature exposure. PTFE belts are also cost effective and hence the choice of the manufacturers.

Other advantage of PTFE belt over others is better transfer of heat and hence low energy dissipation. PTFE belts are also non-stick, so easy to clean. It is thus widely used for transporting products and is most widely used conveyor belt across range of industries like electric, radio frequency, infrared, gas, UV and microwave aided conveyor drying operations.

The PTFE open mesh conveyor belt segment is expected to offer an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 85.9 million over 2023 to 2033.

Which Use Case Upholds the Highest Demand for the Product?

Textile processing is expected to dominate the use of open mesh conveyor belts against other use cases. With arrays of application in the segment, textile processing is projected to offer an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 43.3 million over the forecast period.

Textile and fabrics are transported with the help of open mesh conveyor belt to avoid damage. Cut resistant belts are used in fabric cutting whereas, smoother surface belts are used for fabric spreading. Conveyor belts are also designed for the mixing plants, dyeing and drying fabric and folding machines. The diverse usage of the product in the textile industry has supported its dominance against other use cases.
