A feeder is an equipment piece that feeds liquids, granules, pellets, and other materials at a steady flow. Gravimetric feeders provide continuous high precision feeding using PI control. They are employed in the mining & metallurgy, plastics, chemicals, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical sectors.

Inkwood Research anticipates the global continuous manufacturing gravimetric feeder market to be valued at $863.84 million in revenue by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.91% during the forecast period. The expanding manufacturing industry in the developing nations, which has played a significant role in propelling global GDP growth over the years, boosts the market. Additionally, a wide range of industries, including automotive and pharmaceutical, have benefited from precision manufacturing, which deploys gravimetric feeders on large scales, increasing its demands globally.

Key Industries | Drivers & Restraints

Our study for the global continuous manufacturing gravimetric feeders market includes segmentation analysis based on type and end-user.

The end-user segment is evaluated to understand the relevance of gravimetric feeders in various industries, such as construction, mining & metallurgy, pharmaceutical, food & beverages, plastics, and chemicals.

Pharmaceuticals to rise with the highest CAGR in the end-user segment

Gravimetric feeders play a significant role in the pharmaceutical industry as they enhance and expedite the granulation process to manufacture tablets and pellets, which drive the demand for feeders. Besides, large multinational corporations employ gravimetric feeders to exhibit vertical integration, manufacturing, quality control, research & development, sales, marketing, and distribution.

Food & beverage will incur the highest revenue share by 2030

The market growth is attributed to the use of gravimetric feeders in processing industrial-scale food manufacturing, ranging from simple ovens and conveyor belts to complicated bottling and packaging machinery. They are also employed to produce muesli bars, cereals, diet breakfast drinks, etc. thus, the growing consumption due to the rapid increase in population will favor the demand for gravimetric feeders globally.

However, gravimetric feeders are frequently required to commit to extremely high dosage accuracy. This requirement for consistency necessitates using a high-resolution and reliable weighing system that remains unaffected by environmental variables. In addition, various factors such as changes in ingredient supplier, storage, temperature, or transportation methods may eventually restrict the feeder speed or weight loss per screw rotation. Moreover, gravimetric feeders are more costly than their alternatives. These shortcomings will hinder the global market growth.

Global Trends | Regional Market Analysis

Manufacturing plays a vital role in both emerging and advanced economies. It employs around 14% of the worldwide workforce and accounts for about 16% of global GDP.
