Skid Conveyor: Market Introduction
Skid conveyors usually carry or hold a product on fixtures with longitudinal holders know as skids. These skids can also be transversal. Skid conveyors are usually employed in an assembly line, paint and spray, and inline production. They are available in both belt and chain type. In terms of operation, they could be either manual or automatic. Skid conveyors offer optimum utilization of surface with the transversal and longitudinal skids, and minimum maintenance, which makes skid conveyor apt for vehicle production.
Skid Conveyor: Market Dynamics
The emerging trend of integration of automation in assembly units across several end use industries such as vehicle manufacturing and the expanding vehicle production is expected to attribute significantly towards the growth of the global skid conveyors market over the forecast period. Further, SCADA controlled skid conveyors that are highly responsive to varying throughputs is expected to drive demand for the market.
Mounting consumer preference towards packaged goods, especially food and beverages, is persuading manufacturers to adopt factory automation to increase productivity, efficiency, and meet consumer demand. This, in turn, is expected to drive the volume sales of material handling equipment, thereby fueling the demand for skid conveyors. Also, the installation of conveyor systems reduces a considerable amount of turnover time and operating expenses. Thus, the trend of factory automation across all the end use industries is the major factor attributing towards the growth of the skid conveyors market.
However, the cost of components associated with the skid conveyors is comparatively, as compared to other conveyor systems, which result in high cost of the end product; skid conveyor. This, in turn, restricts the adoption of skid conveyors in the global market to some extent.
