Most of the conveyor belt is used in industrial production, of course, is part of the use of other industries and places, which is widely used because: conveyor belt can be continuous, high efficiency, large angle transport, conveyor belt safety , Conveyor belt easy to use, easy maintenance, low freight, and can shorten the transport distance, reduce project cost, save manpower and resources.
With the upgrading of domestic industries, automated production lines gradually replace the artificial, increased the demand for the conveyor belt. Especially in the metallurgical, mining, coal and other basic industries, driven by the rapid development of transport machinery industry, conveyor belt market has been more significant growth.
As China's economy is in a high-speed development stage, the continuous improvement of industrial automation level has led to the rapid development of food, agricultural products, electronics, building materials, packaging, logistics and other industries, the downstream industry application of the huge market will bring huge domestic light conveyor belt industry The development opportunities.
Data show that in 2010 China's industrial belt conveyor market demand for more than 14 million square kilometers, the market size of 1.685 billion yuan. The next few years, the demand for industrial belt conveyor will increase year by year, China's demand for light conveyor belt in 2014 will reach 20.51 million square meters, the domestic market size will reach 2.876 billion yuan.
In addition, relative to the conveyor machinery, the conveyor belt is consumable, need to be replaced regularly. The service life of the conveyor belt varies greatly depending on the frame material and the conditions of use. For example, the use of high temperature conveyor belts in the steel industry can only be used for 2-3 months. Which also caused the long-term demand for conveyor belt. Globally, the conveyor belt industry with the economic development, the overall market size to maintain steady growth. At present, the global conveyor belt market size of about 6-7 million square meters per year, and the main PVC conveyor belt, conveyor belt market consumption of 85% -90%, industrial belt conveyor accounted for only 10% -15 %.
In China, China's industrialization is slowly developing, the rapid development of heavy chemical industry for the conveyor belt industry to provide a high-speed expansion of the market, in the central and western regions still need a lot of energy, transportation and other infrastructure construction, so with the domestic heavy industry and Infrastructure services such as steel, coal, cement, ports, electricity and other industries continue to grow the total economy, so the domestic conveyor belt market is mainly rubber conveyor belt, its proportion is higher than the global conveyor belt rubber conveyor belt Accounting for. In 2008, China's domestic conveyor belt production in 250 million square meters, of which rubber conveyor belt accounted for about 95% of the amount of conveyor belt. The rapid development of polymer materials modification technology makes the light conveyor belt can have a variety of different performance and meet the needs of different industries, the application of more and more widely. At present, in Europe, the United States, Japan and other countries with high degree of automation, light conveyor belt has been widely used in food processing, logistics and transportation, agricultural products processing, stone processing, entertainment fitness, tobacco production, wood processing, Electronics manufacturing, printing and packaging industries.
Many of the domestic industry is relatively relatively global development is relatively fast, as we will continue to introduce foreign advanced technology, let it continue to strengthen and grow, in such circumstances, the needs of industrial belt conveyor is Increasing. Over the past 20 years, China's product quality level, pay more attention to timely use of international standards and advanced foreign standards. Has more than 30 products of national standards or industry standards. These countries or industry standards are basically based on international standards or foreign advanced standards developed.
