By End-user, the Material handling industry segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the realm of industrial power transmission, V-belts serve as essential friction-based components that transmit power from one pulley to another through the mechanism of friction between the belt and the pulley. These belts, characterized by their trapezoidal cross-sections, are designed to operate in V-shaped grooves. V-belts offer several advantages, including traction, high-speed functionality, high load-bearing capacity, and a low maintenance service life. The wedging effect of the belt around a pulley creates the necessary low belt tension, making V-belts the preferred choice in industrial applications due to their cost-effectiveness, ease of installation, and extensive size range.

By Product, Industrial V-belt drives  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

The material handling segment, which encompasses industries such as oil and gas, mining, medical, machine tools, and wood, constitutes a significant share of the global industrial belt drives market. These sectors heavily rely on industrial belt drives, including V-belt drives and synchronous belt drives, for material handling applications. The surging demand for oil drilling equipment in the energy sector is projected to propel the material handling industry segment's growth in the industrial belt drives market. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of automation and heavy-duty machinery in heavy industries is fueling the demand for industrial belt drives. The automated and semi-automated material handling industry is poised for robust expansion in developing economies during the forecast period.
