According to the conveyor belt market report, the demand for conveyor systems is forecast to hit a size of US$ 6.94 billion in 2024, increasing at the annual growth rate of 3.38 percent between 2019 and 2024.
With growing consumer demand, the e-commerce and manufacturing industries have introduced automated warehouses in which goods are transported by conveyor systems. Add on equipment such as sensors, scanners, labeling machines, and packaging mechanisms, can be connected to conveyor systems that add considerable value to tasks in order to make fully assembled products ready for distribution.
In one of its warehouse, Amazon uses a conveyor system of length 14 miles which does much of the movement of products. There are different types of conveyors based upon the use case and requirements viz. E-commerce industries mostly prefer sorting conveyors, whereas manufacturing industries use flexible roller conveyors, for loading and unloading of products.
Advantages of the Conveyor system
- Conveyor systems ensure a high degree of accuracy in the movement of goods
- Optimize the flow of parts and goods, which significantly increases the throughput.
- Increases the efficiency of warehouses by reducing human intervention.
- Conveyor systems facilitate the movement of heavy duty equipment.
Why conveyors are important for your business?
With the fast-moving of goods in the warehouse, manual sorting of products will be a time taking process. To keep up with the pace, manual sortation should be replaced by sorting conveyor. In Flipkart, the sorting conveyor and its (Automated Guided Vehicles) AGVs can sort 4,500 packages in an hour, ten times more than a person would manually do. The efficiency is expected to grow higher with warehouse automation. (Click here to know how automation increases efficiency).
