Top 3 Factors Shaping the Magnetic Separator Market

  • Recycled Metal Usage in the Manufacturing Industry is expected to Drive the Demand for Magnetic Separators

    Magnetic separators are a vital part of the metal recycling industry. Metal recycling is the process of collecting and processing used metals to develop recycled metals. Metals can be recycled without altering their metallic properties, which comes as an advantage. The prominent reason for the usage of recycled metal is less energy consumption. Energy consumption for producing virgin ore is 20 times more than the recycled ore.

    Moreover, metal recycling has advantages such as environmental benefits, energy conversion efficiency, and economic benefits. The manufacturing industry is more inclined towards using recycled metals as raw materials, owing to benefits such as effective cost and energy consumption rate. For recycled metal production, collection of metals from the waste is a crucial part, which is sorted with magnetic separators. The increased use of recycled metals in the manufacturing industry results in increasing usage of magnetic separators.

  • Increasing Demand for High Purity Metals and Removal of Unwanted Particles is expected to Drive the Magnetic Separator Market

    In the mining industry, bulk materials extracted from the mine are required to be reformed into the required size. Mining crushers are utilized for crushing the bulk material into the required material size. In the crushing process, tramp metal might damage the processing equipment such as crushers. This damage is estimated to impact the operational life and the maintenance cost of the equipment.

    To avoid damage to the processing equipment from the tramp, magnetic separators are installed before the processing equipment to remove unwanted materials from the extraction mixture. Increasing usage of process equipment in the mining industry is anticipated to positively affect the utilization of magnetic separators.

  • Surging Construction Projects to Propel the Growth of the Magnetic Separator Market over the Forecast Period

    Magnetic separators find significant applications in the cement industry to separate unwanted metallic particles from raw materials or processed cement. Increasing construction projects particularly, in developed countries is expected to fuel the growth of cement industries, subsequently increasing the demand for magnetic separators.
