Industrial granulators are machines that are used in several industry verticals to reduce the size of particles of materials. Rapidly increasing industrialization around the world is also projected to favour shipments of industrial granulators in the future.

The launch of new construction projects in light of surging demand for infrastructure development is also positively impacting market development around the world, especially in developing countries. Industrial granulator sales are also forecasted to rise owing to the high focus on sustainability, which is driving demand for the recycling of almost all products.

Growing use of recycled plastics and metals in numerous industry verticals will also create bankable business scope for industrial granulator companies through 2033. Rising automotive products, high demand for recycled products, implementation of stringent waste regulation and recycling norms, and technological advancements in granulation technology are other prospects that could influentially augment industrial granulator demand going forward.

  • In May 2023, RFI Ingredients, an integrated manufacturer of dietary supplements and functional foods based in the United States, announced the launch of its new dry granulation technology. TruHD helps in reducing material processing difficulties that users face during the high-speed manufacturing of tablets and capsules.

On the flip side, volatility in raw material pricing is expected to be a persistent threat for industrial granulator manufacturers across the forecast period and beyond. The aforementioned factor dictates the profitability for companies and creates a major roadblock in attaining full revenue generation potential over the coming years.

How is Sustainability Sculpting the Plastic Granulator Market?

“Plastic Recycling Granulator Sales Reaching New Heights”

Plastic waste management has emerged as a major challenge for countries around the world in recent years and as concerns regarding its environmental impact mount, it is projected to bolster sales of plastic shredder machines in the future. Implementation of stringent mandates to curb plastic waste and promote recycling is estimated to create lucrative business opportunities for small plastic granulator machine providers as well as established market players.

Small-scale plastic shredders are projected to be highly popular amongst local recycling companies in developing regions that operate on a smaller scale as compared to big recycling giants in developed countries. Industrial granulator manufacturers are expected to develop and launch products that are specially designed for waste management and recycling applications to increase their sales potential and capitalize on the evolving demand outlook.

  • In March 2021, Lundberg Tech, a waste-handling solutions provider based in Denmark, announced the launch of a new line of granulators. The new inline granulators served as the foundation for the company’s vacuum waste removal systems capable of cutting-edge trims and label matrices.

Industrial granulator start-ups can focus on recycling and sustainability trends to penetrate the market with ease and gain a substantial share of the global landscape. New industrial granulator companies can also focus on collaborations and partnerships that allow them to expand their business scope and improve their reach.

Additional insights about how waste management and recycling are expected to shape the industry have been listed in detail in this latest industrial granulators research survey by the skilled analysts at Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider.
