Industrial Metal Detector Market: Insights
Industrial metal detectors are used by industries to detect the presence of undesirable metal contaminants that may have fallen into the final product. The industrial revolution has increased the production capabilities of manufacturing processes of various products through automation. The machines and equipment used for manufacturing products are made from metal and are subject to wear and tear. During their life cycle, metal contaminants like pieces of the equipment and metal shavings from general wear and tear can enter the final product and contaminate them. Industries have the responsibility to ensure the safety of their products and ensure they are safe for consumers to purchase and use. The rapid pace of industrialization has increased the quantities produced in a manufacturing plant and has made it impossible for industries to manually check the products to ensure the quality of the products that are manufactured. This has increased the demand for industrial metal detectors that are capable of automatically checking the products for the presence of metals in the products. Industrial metal detectors utilize a three coil configuration for detecting metal particles in the final product. There are two receiving coils and one amplitude-modulated transmitting coil. The coils are set up in such a way that the coils create an opening aperture through which the product like food, plastics, pharmaceuticals, etc. enter the coils. This creates a signal which is received by the receivers and the signal is canceled out by the signal produced at the receiving coils. The signals created by the transmitting coil and receiving coils are mirrors of each other and cancel each other out. When a metal contaminant is present in the product, a distinct electronic signal is created by the disturbance that is created in the signals which indicate the presence of metal contaminants. This entire process is automated which increases the number of products that can be analyzed and allows the manufacturing plant to run without any interruptions. The industrial metal detector market is driven by the growing use of metals, growing automation, and the growing government regulations on product quality. Food and pharmaceutical products are regulated heavily by governments to ensure the ability and safety of the products to protect the consumers from the dangers of consuming metal. The cost of implementation of industrial metal detectors acts as a major restraint to the growth of the market.
Industrial Metal Detector Market: By Product Type
Based on product type, the industrial metal detector market can be segmented into in-line/conveyed media, handheld/portable, in-line/internal pipeline, and in-line/gravity fed-free-flowing segments. The in-line/gravity-fed free-flowing segment is expected to hold the dominant share of the market during the forecast period. Gravity-fed free-flowing industrial metal detectors allow the product to fall through the metal detector’s aperture by gravity and detect the presence of metals. The handheld/portable segment will be growing the fastest as compared to other products. The ease of handling portable or handheld industrial metal detectors and their lower cost due to the smaller size of these industrial metal detectors are the major drivers of this segment. These drivers are expected to increase the demand for handheld or portable industrial metal detectors in the market.
Industrial Metal Detector Market: By Capability
Based on capability, the industrial metal detector market can be segmented into non-ferrous, non-magnetic, and hot metal detection segments. The non-ferrous segment held the dominant share of the market. Non-ferrous metals are used extensively in most manufacturing processes and are more susceptible to wear and tear damage. Industrial metal detectors that are capable of detecting non-ferrous metals are increasing in demand due to the widespread usage of non-ferrous metals in manufacturing equipment.
Industrial Metal Detector Market: By End-User
Based on the end-user, the industrial metal detector market can be segmented into pharmaceutical, food and beverage, mining, textile, chemicals, and plastics, and rubber segments. The food segment is expected to hold the lion’s share of the market. The food & beverage industry has seen an increase in demand for mass-produced food and beverages. Food and beverage products are susceptible to contamination from metal tramps from the equipment used in manufacturing, there are strict regulations in place to prevent consumers from consuming food and beverages that have been contaminated by metals. This increased need for industrial metal detectors in the food & beverages industry is expected to see the food and beverage segment hold the lion’s share of the market during the forecast period.
Industrial Metal Detector Market: By Region
The North American region held the largest share of the market among all regions. The growing automation in the region has increased the demand for industrial metal detectors in various industries present in the region. The region has strict regulations that are enforced by various agencies to ensure the safety of products which has also played an important part in the demand for industrial metal detected in the region. The APAC region is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. The APAC region has seen an increase in the demand for pre-packaged food and beverages which is expected to increase the demand for industrial metal detectors in the region. The region has also seen an increase in industrialization and automation as the region has to meet the growing demand from the growing population.
