The screw conveyor is a type of a conveyor which are widely used to convey the material at a controlled and steady rate with the help of a rotating helical screw blade inside a round tube or a U shaped trough. Screw conveyors are generally made out of stainless steel or carbon steel depending upon the operation. Nowadays, plastic screw conveyors are also in use, as all-plastic material does not corrode. Different types of screw conveyors are available in the market including horizontal screw conveyors, shaftless screw conveyors, inclined screw conveyors, and vertical screw conveyors. Among these, horizontal screw conveyors are the most widely used type of screw conveyors. Screw conveyors are used by various end-use industries including mining, chemicals, food processing, agricultural, solid waste management, etc.

Screw Conveyors Market: Market Dynamics


Ever growing end-use industry such as agricultural, food processing, etc., both in developed and emerging economies is anticipated to act as a prime factor driving the growth of the screw conveyors market over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing adoption of automated production lines across various industries will also give traction to the growth of the screw conveyors market in the coming decades. Furthermore, screw conveyors are ideal for dry to semi-fluid materials and are cost-effective as compared to other conveying devices.
