Global High Pressure Grinding Roller Market 2017-2021
About High Pressure Grinding Roller
The high pressure grinding roller (HPGR) is a flexible crushing solution, which is suitable for both new installations and upgrades. It is used to crush feed material at a high pressure to obtain a refined output. The process has been in existence for many years. Though it was initially used in the cement industry, it later found applications in the mining industry, especially in the extraction of diamonds and in hard rock applications.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global high pressure grinding roller market to grow at a CAGR of 4.81% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global high pressure grinding roller market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the new installations.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global High Pressure Grinding Roller Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global high pressure grinding roller market: FLSmidth, Metso, The Koppen Group, and The Weir Group
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ABB, CITIC Heavy Industries, GME, KHD Humboldt Wedag International, Outotec, SGS, Shanghai Clirik Machinery, Shanghai Zenith Company, and Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Integration of sealed spherical roller bearings in HPGRs. The sealed version of spherical roller bearings is designed primarily to increase the cost savings of mining companies, by reducing the operational cost and boosting the efficiency of grinding equipment.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing use of aluminum in automobiles. The amount of aluminum used in cars is expected to increase significantly by 2025 globally, and the increase will primarily be in the form of rolled and extruded products; of these, auto body sheets will account for the major application when compared with the others. Also, with the growing demand for lightweight automobiles, it is expected that the aluminum content in cars will increase by 110 pounds in 2025 when compared with 2016. Aluminum has become the material of choice in mass-market vehicles like Ford, Hyundai, and Maruti to luxury cars like as Audi, Mercedes Benz, and Land Rover due to its strength and advantages.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High-return challenges in HPGRs. The coupled interaction of units along a process chain, which may respond quite differently to ore feed size and ability, makes grinding process control a challenge. This is due to the variation in the feed in the short- and long-term. HPGRs, matching screens, crushers, belt capacities, and top-size feed are some processes that face this challenge. Many plants suffer from a number of design constraints, which affect the overall throughput. Material handling issues like asymmetric feed, segregation, oversize feed, and fixed speed in HPGRs limit the circuit throughput. In addition, the final product is again fed into the ball mill or SAG mill in order to increase the throughput rate. Therefore, this additional process that is used to increase the throughput increases the operational cost and may have the negative impact on the market.
