Compost is decomposed organic matter. Compost is rich in nutrients for the soil. Compost is used in agriculture, horticulture, gardening, landscaping and organic farming. Compost acts a soil conditioner and fertilizer since it is recycled from waste matter such as leaves, grass, food scraps, and animal manure among other ingredients. The compost turning machines are used to perform the fermentation and decay of such raw materials as mentioned above. The basic benefits of turning compost come down to aeration. Decomposition happens because of microbes and these microbes need to be able to breathe in order to live and function. If there is no oxygen, these microbes die off and decomposition slows down. Turning the compost heap can help in the pre-composting process. The quality of the compost depends majorly on how much and how well it has been turned. Hence, compost turning machines are very important machines and integral to the production of good quality compost.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

Compost is important to maintain the organic carbon content of soil and to improve the uptake of nutrients by soil. The compost tumbler needs to be turned every three to four days and the compost pile every three to seven days. As the compost matures, the turning can be done less frequently. Turning classically, used to be done with a pitchfork. But now automated machines are available to do this job and reduce human labor dependency and effort. Compost turning machines reduce the use of fuel consumed during the land preparation processes. Biogas generated from compost is also an import side benefit of the compost generation process and the importance of this can also aid the compost turning machine market.

The global woodworking market trends are as follows:

Increased number of waste management and soil health awareness initiatives around the world:

Resource management and waste management are of great importance in the current economic scenario. Due to the increasingly large amounts of waste generated, particularly in urban areas, numerous government organizations and non-governmental organizations are collaborating to ensure proper sanitation and waste management. All types of waste being generated in society, such as food waste and other types of waste are being converted to recycle the waste and manage it. In India, for example, ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ is a governmental initiative which is expected to grow waste management awareness.

Soil health is a very serious issue in the agricultural industry and the key to expanding the compost turning machines market is to encourage education of all regarding soil health. The United Nations declared the year 2015 as the ‘International Year of Soil’. Initiatives and projects that focus on soil health are expected aid the increase in demand for compost turning machines in the future. 

Growing demand of elevating face compost turner machines

In the current market scenario, the drum type compost turning machine is expected to remain the dominant type in the compost turning machine market. Drum-style turners provide an efficient way to produce high-quality compost and the design is simple. However in case of smaller-diameter drum that rotates at a higher speed, it may result in the compost getting artificially broken down or shredded, thus limiting air exchange in the windrow.

Elevating-face technology features a way to avoid artificially degrading the compost material and introduces the maximum amount of oxygen into the compost pile. It does so by breaking the compost pile into chunks. Elevating-face technology doesn’t pack the compost back into a pile, which helps maximize natural air exchange into the pile or windrow and reduces the frequency needed to turn the compost.

Also, for some composting operations, available space can be a problem. Elevating-face technology allows production of up to three times more compost per acre as it uses continuous windrow stack instead of traditional windrows. For sites in an urban setting with limited space, this is a big advantage as the amount of material on the site can be maximized. 

Elevating-face technology also requires 30 to 50 percent less horsepower per cubic yard as drum-style turners are typically down in the pile whereas the elevating-face technology is breaking the pile apart, which requires less power.
