As per our research Report, the Loss-in-Weight Feeder Market is forecasted to be growing at a CAGR of 7.0% from 2024 to 2030.
A loss-in-weight feed is applied in industries to precisely dose a product into a process at the desired rate of flow or in lots. In a loss-in-weight feeder, either a platform scale or load cells can be used to suspend the feeding equipment, which has a hopper that holds the product to be fed. The metering device discharges the product from the hopper, and the weighing and control system computes the weight loss per unit of time. The desired weight loss per unit time and this real weight loss per unit time are then compared. The feeding device's pace is adjusted for any difference between the desired and actual weight loss per unit of time. The control by weight loss is briefly disturbed and the hopper is refilled when the contents of the hopper reach a predetermined minimum weight level. The controller adjusts the feeding device's speed during the refill period in accordance with the weight and speed that were established during the previous weight loss process.
Loss-in-weight feeders are amazing for application when it comes to both small and medium feeding ranges. They operate with extreme accuracy when under optimum ambient conditions. They can handle bulk solids, liquids, and even items that don't flow well due to their character of great flexibility. They are used in numerous continuous processes that require high levels of short-term feeding consistency, such as feeding extruders. Loss-in-weight feeders are also assisted in the food industry and laboratories with adapted feeding devices and storage containers. Depending on the application, the design can vary from compact constructions to modular concepts. Due to their vast application in various industries, the global loss-in-weight feeder market is expected to grow at a fast rate during the forecast period.
There is a rising demand for a variety of processed and packaged food products as a result of the innovation in products and rapid expansion of technology. Loss-in-weight feeders fulfill all the aforementioned requirements and assist in providing high accuracy and speed for the manufacturing and packaging process. Therefore, this factor propels the demand for loss-in-weight feeders.
Any kind of bulk solid material, including powders, pellets, granules, or flakes, can be fed through loss-in-weight feeders. These materials include coal, iron ore, limestone, and so on. These materials are all processed in mining before being brought to the market as finished goods like steel, aluminum, concrete bricks, building components, automobiles, and so on. Each type needs a feeding system that will deliver precise amounts at specific intervals to the crushers, grinders, and other processing machines. Therefore, this element also drives the demand for loss-in-weight feeders.
The expansion of loss-in-weight feeders to emerging markets offers a lucrative opportunity in the global loss-in-weight feeder market. Given the rising industrialization and the rising demand for advanced production technologies in rapidly developing economies, major loss-in-weight feeder manufacturing companies can stand to gain majorly from this opportunity by expanding their product to these countries in order to widen their customer base and boost their overall revenue.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic substantially affected the global loss-in-weight feeder market. The imposition of strict lockdowns, traveling restrictions, and social distancing measures across several nations hindered many companies' manufacturing capacities and caused a lack of skilled workforce. The pandemic caused disturbances in supply chains and distribution of goods and services, which highly affected the production and distribution of loss-in-weight feeders. Furthermore, the demand for loss-in-weight feeders decreased in several industries due to minimised economic activity. These factors negatively resulted in the growth of the global loss-in-weight feeder market. Despite these hurdles, the global loss-in-weight feeder market is projected to recover and grow in the future years.
Key Market Insights:
In 2022, the single-screw feeder segment held the biggest market share. The development can be attributed to the vast application of single-screw feeders in a wide range of industries, including food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, etc., as they are ideal for feeding free-flowing bulking materials. Additionally, single-screw feeders are generally cost-effective and easier to install and maintain than twin-screw feeders, which further push this segment's growth.
In 2022, the Medium Feeding Range held the largest market share. The growth can be credited to the increasing application of medium-feeding range loss-in-weight feeders across various industry verticals. Also, the small feeding range loss-in-weight sector is anticipated to grow exponentially and at the highest CAGR during the expected period.
In 2022, the food and beverages segment held the dominant market share. The development can be directed to the vast application of loss-in-weight feeders in the food and beverages industry for feeding and dosing ingredients, including sugar, flour, spices, and additives, with the best accuracy and precision. Additionally, the rising demand for processed and packaged food and beverages boosts this segment's growth.
In 2022, the region of Asia-Pacific holds the largest share of the global loss-in-weight feeder market and will continue to be the fastest-growing continent during the forecast period. The growth can be credited to growing industrialization, the rising demand for processed and packaged food, and the rising demand for pharmaceutical products in countries, including China and India. Furthermore, the region is home to several key market players including Yamato Scale, Yoshikawa Corporation, Guang Dong High Dream Intellectualized Machinery Co. Ltd., Amisy Machinery, and Shanghai Shigan Industrial Co. Ltd.
