The global conveyor systems market was $5.23 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $7.43 billion by 2027. That’s a compound annual growth rate of 4.6%. While historically the industrial and construction sectors have been the main drivers of conveyor system technology, the past few years have seen new demand in e-commerce, food and beverage, and pharmaceuticals.
