Belt Feeders Market

Belt Feeders Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Belt Feeders Market: Introduction

Belt feeder is a type of feeder which is generally used to provide a well-ordered volumetric flow of bulk materials from the storage units. Belts feeders are generally recommended for handling granular materials and not for very hard and tough bulk materials. Based on the needs of process and materials, belt feeders are available in a variety of capabilities and sizes in the market. Additionally, belt feeders can perform several functions such as bulk material weighing, belt speed measurement, auto centering, alarm signaling for failures, belt speed frequency control, continuous material flow control, etc. Belt feeders are used in various industries including mining, food processing, agricultural, quarrying, construction, etc. Among this, there is a significant demand for belt feeders in the growing mining industries.

Belt Feeders Market: Market Dynamics


Substantial thermal power generation across the globe along with ever increasing demand for power, these belt feeders are anticipated to find extensive usage for coal handling purpose in thermal power plants.
