Vacuum Suction Cups Market Dynamics
The growing demand for packaging applications is driving the growth of the vacuum suction cup market. With the growing emphasis on minimizing human intervention, vacuum suction cups have gained popularity in the packing industry. It allows for the safe handling of materials and complex-shaped products in an automated process, resulting in high demand for these cups. However, the increasing adoption of automation in the packaging industry is also supporting the growth of the vacuum suction cups industry.
The rising need to handle fragile materials is one of the trends in the vacuum suction cups market that is boosting sales. The growing emphasis of key manufacturers on developing smooth and reliable suction cups to handle fragile materials is also supporting market growth. Bellow suction cups are primarily designed for fragile applications because they produce a lifting action that can be used to lightly grip fragile parts such as electronic components or even glass.
However, the availability of substitutes in the industry and the difficulty associated with lifting porous materials are some of the leading aspects that are restricting industry growth. In addition to that, the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic also impacted the industry growth on account of the shutdowns of manufacturing, lockdowns, and disrupted supply chain. Furthermore, the rapidly expanding automotive industry, as well as the growing trend of using vacuum suction cups in this sector, is expected to drive industry demand in the coming years.
Vacuum Suction Cups Market Segmentation
The worldwide vacuum suction cups market is split based on type, material, end-use application, distribution channel, and geography.
Market by Type
According to our vacuum suction cups industry analysis, the flat vacuum suction cups sub-segment is expected to lead the market with significant market shares in 2021. Flat suction cups work well on smooth or lightly structured surfaces. Besides, the suction cups' flat design allows them to work effectively on lifting products such as glass, wood, cardboard, and metal sheets. However, the bellows vacuum suction cups sub-segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period due to their suitability for handling uneven, concave/convex, arched, and curved surfaces and workpieces.
Market by Material
Among all the materials, nitrile (NBR), also known as nitrile rubber, is one of the most commonly used materials in the manufacture of vacuum suction cups. NBR is used in a wide variety of industrial applications, including glass handling, sheet metal handling, plastic goods handling, and wood handling. NBR is resistant to oil as well as a wide range of chemicals. Because of its high wear resistance, NBR is ideal for handling wood and cardboard. Furthermore, the NBR material vacuum suction cups are resistant to oil and abrasion.
Market by End-Use Application
According to our market forecast for vacuum suction cups, packaging end-use applications will gain significant traction in the coming years. The growing demand for packaging in various industries has resulted in an increase in the demand for packaging applications all over the world. Furthermore, as flexible packaging gains popularity in a variety of industries, especially the food and beverage industry, manufacturers are concentrating on creating advanced vacuum cups that are compliant with the flexible packaging process. Another key area of focus for packaging suction cup market participants is the design of suction cups with FDA-approved raw material for the packaging industry.
Market by Distribution Channel
In terms of distribution channels, demand for offline channels remains higher than for online channels. The segment's rapid growth can be attributed to an increase in offline orders from end-use industries. Because offline channels allow end-users to physically inspect the shape and size of vacuum suction cups, this segment has led the industry's growth from the start. However, due to the growing trend of the e-commerce industry, the online channels sub-segment will experience the fastest growth in the distribution channel segment. Furthermore, the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic shifted the focus of end-users and consumers toward online channels due to the closure of physical stores. However, the trend is expected to reverse, with online channels taking a significant share in the coming years.
Vacuum Suction Cups Market Regional Outlook
The Middle East & Africa (MEA)
The growing number of manufacturing units in Asia-Pacific fuels the regional vacuum suction cups market growth
