Sensors and Motors Capturing Physical Abnormalities and Human Error

Manufacturers are leveraging sensor technology such as vibration sensors, to monitor current status of vibrating screen assets and aid the users predict machine failures, for instance, misalignment, electrical disturbance, and mechanical looseness. Integrating sensors into vibratory screens waives the need for any personnel to scale every screen which leads to inaccurate data due to human error. Further, the data captured by the vibration sensors is sent to a local database or a cloud-based network in real time, allowing users to keep a constant eye on the vibrating screen and its accessories.

Furthermore, incorporation of electric motor, a DC motor, has enabled firsthand notification to the user without sound or vibration owing to its magnetic properties, light weight and compact size, thereby enhancing performance of the motor and eventually of the vibrating screens.

Key Factors Shaping the Vibrating Screens Market

Flourishing Residential Construction Sector Driving the Market Growth

Increasing population and growing migrant workforce have led to high floating population in many developing countries. In order to fulfil the accommodation needs of this humungous population, a number of residential project permits are being granted by governments and numerous such projects have commenced in the last few years. These require screening of a large number of construction materials such as sand and gravel, among others, in order to offer quality buildings and living spaces. This is one of the key drivers, which is fueling the growth of the vibrating screens market.

Growing Market for Precious Metals Propelling the Growth of the Vibrating Screens Market

Mining activities account for a significant share of the overall GDP in several developing countries, such as APAC, Latin America, and MEA. Governments and mining companies in countries such as Mozambique, Mauritania, and South Africa, among others, are expected to focus on unexplored and untapped investment opportunities for mining of mineral resources to drive economic growth. In addition, the steady growth in demand for precious metals, such as gold and platinum, is expected to drive the growth in mining activity of precious metals, thereby fuelling the growth of the vibrating screens market over the forecast period.

Infrastructure Development Driving the Market Growth

Population growth is directly proportional to the required development of infrastructure. Governments of developing nations are making huge investments in either improving or commissioning new infrastructure such as high speed railways and road construction. For instance, under its latest five-year plan, China is focusing on developing new highways, airports, oil and gas pipelines, etc. In the coming years, we will see massive development related to construction of roads, buildings and bridges across India, which will give traction to the growth of the vibrating screens market over the forecast period.

Vibrating Screens Market Structure Analysis

  • The global vibrating screens market is fairly consolidated and big players in the market command ~ 60-70% of the global market share. The barrier for entry in this market is high as it is capital intensive and hence, the major players have an upper hand. As a result, several small players are getting acquired by bigger companies.
  • The vibrating screens market is relatively moderate in size due to the high initial investment required to be made in the procurement of manufacturing equipment.
  • Prominent manufacturers of vibrating screens are currently diverting majority of their yearly budget towards R&D and new product launches to keep pace with rapidly changing technologies such as automation and telematics.
  • Manufacturers of vibrating screens are also focusing on customizing their product portfolio so as to provide solutions to customers based on their specific requirements.
  • In order to grow their market shares wherein their presence is limited, prominent manufacturers of vibrating screens are likely to deploy inorganic growth strategies through mergers and acquisitions of smaller localized players who have a good distribution network in the region

The Battle between Polymeric Integration and Ebbing Demands

Vibrating screens made of polyurethane materials are ideal for grading, dehydration and processing of coal, iron ore, gold and other minerals on account of their ability to separate most of the materials from coarse stones to granular materials, making them a perfect fit for both dry and wet materials. The polyurethane vibrating screens assure noise-abated operations as they have a high vibration-absorbance. They offer screening processes with an efficacy of about 2-5 times that of the usual vibrating screen and load-handling capacity of about twice that of a rubber sieve. Further, various industries such as, wood processing, construction aggregate, recycling, and iron and steel producing, are cherry-picking polyurethane vibrating screens owing to their high durability.

However, the demands for vibrating screens is set to tumble slightly in the upcoming years due to their long life-cycle, requiring lesser maintenance, and high capital investments. Additionally, fatal accidents happening at mining sites resulting in huge number of morbidities are compelling miners to drop out from mining exploration activities, which will impede the growth of the vibrating screen market.

East Asia - the Storehouse of Lucrative Opportunities

Stakeholders are eyeing the economies of East Asia for promising return on investment (ROI), with South Asia exhibiting growth at a sweeping rate. The upward trajectory is attributed to upsurge in mining operations to satiate the demand for coal and rare-earth minerals, such as, gold, and construction activities to build infrastructure assets in countries including, China, India, and others.

China has been dominating the gold production globally for almost a decade, accounting for about 12% of the overall world production last year. The country also rules the global coal production, followed by India, realizing the rising demands for electricity to power air-conditioners, especially in the summer season. The ‘5-year plan’ of China encompasses the construction of highways, airports, oil and gas pipelines, and others, whereas the ‘Make in India’ initiative promises voluminous infrastructural development including, roads, buildings, and bridges across the nation.

Innovative Value-added Amenities to Define Stakeholders’ Market Tactics

The global vibrating screen market is a fairly consolidated market with the leading market actors holding substantial shares of the total market revenues. Manufacturers are coming up with ultrafine vibrating screens that houses a collective assembly of up to 10 individual screen decks and a feed splitter box, enabling accurate feed distribution across the decks, improved overall efficacy, smaller pumps than hydro-cyclones, and decreased initial capital investment. Further, coupling with hydro-cyclones in a 2-phase classification circuit ensure better operational return on investment (ROI).

Leading market players are banking on steel-reinforced rubber or polyurethane vibrating screens to avoid abnormalities at the side plates occurring due to vibrations. To upend maintenance costs, manufacturers are including a self-tensioned motor-base to shield both the electric motor and drive belts from tension caused by vibration. Some of the emerging markets are substituting traditional bolts and nuts with huck-bolted vibrating screens to ensure workforce safety. In addition, pairing of sliders with the front chutes is dismissing the need of a lifting tool by allowing smooth movement and easy access to the screen in a few minutes.

Furthermore, market players are reducing the price of vibrating screen to extend their product portfolio in emerging economies including, South Africa, Chile, Australia, and India by entering into long-term contracts with local sellers.

How Growth will Unfold

The global vibrating screen market is on the journey of an impressive growth over the predefined timeframe despite a slowdown in the mining vertical. Escalating demands for private ownership of residential areas in advanced economies, which require filtering of unwanted materials from gravel, cement, and others, is one of the gold mines of the progress. The US Census Bureau and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the completion of 1, 161, 000 residential projects and commencement of 1, 220, 000 new ones for this year in June. The United Nations DESA estimated that about 66% of the global demographic will reside in urban regions by 2050, which will gear the growth of vibrating screen market globally.
