Automation in Bulk Material Handling Systems to Surge, Driven by Worker Health Concerns Arising During the Covid-19 Pandemic – Future Market Insights

Players in the bulk material handling systems market are focusing on applications in essential sectors including food & beverage, animal feed, agriculture, and minerals for the duration of the outbreak.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / August 17, 2020 / The coronavirus pandemic has had a substantial effect on the bulk material handlings systems industry. Nationwide lockdown measures have restricted industrial operations in multiple sectors. Industries reliant on supplies from Asia in particular have been hit hard. Consequently, the bulk material handling systems market is likely to go through a short term downturn.

“Bulk material handling is a key intermediary step in manufacturing and processing sectors. While these systems do not contribute directly to the end product, applications bolster efficacy in material management, handling, storage, and the transportation of materials through efficient circulation, aiding the growth of demand in myriad verticals,” says the FMI analyst.
