About the Report
With new advancements in material technology, the plastic processing industry is becoming more dominant in today’s world. Due to its toughness and low price, demand for plastic is rising, especially from low-income countries.
This incidentally creates enormous demand for vacuum loaders, for utility in loading and conveying materials such as powder, pellets, regrind, resin, etc., in the industry.
Apart from that, pharmaceutical and food processing industries are other end users that require vacuum loaders to perform their industrial operations.
Fact.MR, in its latest research report, offers insights on key factors that are expected to fuel demand for vacuum loaders over the coming years.
The report sheds light on the trends in 20+ high-growth countries, where the regions of North America, Europe, and Asia lead the way. It also details what impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on this space.
Future Demand to Outweigh Historical Trends
From 2015 to 2019, the global vacuum loaders market exhibited a CAGR of around 5%. Growing number of end-use industries is expected to fuel demand over the coming years.
Increasing customised vacuum loaders, rental activities, and innovations are some of the other driving forces in this space.
Owing to these broad factors, demand is likely to increase at a CAGR over 5% throughout the 2020 to 2030 assessment period, especially from the plastic processing, pharmaceutical, and food processing sectors.
What Role will End-use Industries Play in Fuelling Demand for Vacuum Loaders?
From 2006 to 2016, output from the plastic industry rose from 245 million tonnes to 348 million tonnes (according to Plastics Europe Trade Association).
Plastic has been increasingly adopted in various activities; whether packaging, infrastructural development, electrical, electronics, telecom, or transport, t
he industry has been witnessing rising utilities across a number of sectors in recent decades. Plastic production is observing a shift from Western countries to Eastern countries such as China and India.
For instance, by the time Europe moved from 50 to 58 million tons of plastic production from 2009 to 2020, China stirred plastic production from 35 to 84 million tons.
This shows the enormous demand emerging for the plastic processing industry from this region, which is consequently impelling demand for vacuum loaders.
Chemicals (pharmaceuticals) and food processing industry has also created invariable requests for vacuum loaders due to their ability to efficiently convey materials while maintaining hygiene during the process.
Reduced spillage and contactless loading are key factors unearthing the usefulness of vacuum loaders in various new end-use industries.
Despite rising regulations against plastic use in numerous countries, applications generating from advancements in material technology, for instance, production of reusable plastic, are assisting market growth.
What Impact do Governments Regulations Have on the Vacuum Loaders Space?
According to the World Resources Institute and United Nations, there are now more than 127 countries that have adopted some amount of legislation to regulate the plastic industry and its ill effects.
Use of reusable bags has been incentivised in some countries such as Vietnam and Uzbekistan.
These attempts are seriously obstructing the growth of vacuum loaders, as most demand comes from plastic processing industries. Some of the issues pertaining to regulations on the use of single-use plastics could be addressed with the help of reusable plastics.
Some companies such as Summit Systems have already started a recyclable segment, which is expected to balance the effect of the regulations during the forecast period.
Apart from this, vacuum loader usage is largely encouraged by governments in industries such as food processing and pharmaceuticals, as these loaders offer a more efficient and hygienic way to load materials.
Also, as automation has brought significant changes in the standard of living of people in developed economies such as South Korea and many European nations, adoption of vacuum loaders in expected to increase at a faster rate across low-income countries over the coming years.

What are the Key Challenges for Vacuum Loader Manufacturers?
Apart from government regulations that are hampering the market in numerous developed countries, vacuum loaders suffer due to some limitations such as limited material conveying distance.
Range of operation for vacuum loaders varies from 20 – 150 ft., which is a very small distance to perform functions in a large industry. This compels end users to install central conveying systems, which convey till a distance up to 1,000 ft.
While providing an advantage to small-scale industries to place self-contained vacuum loaders even at any concise space, it also takes away the functionality of the system to operate remotely, as can be done with centralised vacuum loaders.
Furthermore, in self-contained vacuum loaders, cleaning is done with the pulse blowback at the loader using compressed air. While, in central conveying systems, the screens are washed when the receiver vacuum valve opens at the end of the cycle.
Therefore, in general, large business operations do not prefer having a plant full of separate loaders, and by replacing loaders with a central conveying device, any processor can significantly increase plant performance and minimise energy and labour costs.
What Makes China a Leading Market for Vacuum Loaders?
China is the largest producer as well as exporter of plastic-made goods in the world. The country produces over 60 million tons of plastics products worth nearly US$ 20 billion, annually.
China’s key industry having large plastic consumption is construction, which utilises more than 20% of plastic consumed. One of the potential industries that ensures the requirement of vacuum loaders is the recycled plastic industry.
Establishment and functioning of these industries would require a large number of vacuum loaders for bulk material in their premises.
Food industries in China have an industrial output of more than 460 million tonnes per year, which shows the prospective purchase requirement of vacuum loaders in the country.
Also, with China being the largest producer of steel in the world, manufacturers would experience ease in getting raw materials by establishing their units in the country, thereby increasing the need for vacuum loaders.
Greater China currently holds a share of over 68% in East Asia for vacuum loaders, and is expected to have market value of nearly US$ 25 Mn in 2030. Over 750 lb/hr throughput vacuum loaders currently hold a significant share of more than 35% in the country.
The market in Greater China is expected to expand at a CAGR of nearly 5% during the forecast period. The country has huge potential for plastic processing, which currently holds a market share of around 83% as far as vacuum loader demand is concerned.
