Rotary Kiln is a long steel cylinder with a refractory lining that is supported on rollers so that it can rotate about its own axis, and erected with a slight inclination from the horizontal so that prepared raw materials fed into the higher end move to the lower end, where fuel is blown in by air blast. It is often used to treat hazardous waste through thermal destruction
It is a long sized rotating cylindrical vessel. Rotary kiln is used in thermal processes for calcination, drying, pyrolysing, and sintering with the use of hot gases, in a continuous process. Rotary kiln is also known as rotary calciner. A rotary kiln plant has a rotating tube which rotates about its own axis, raw material feed, and discharge housing coupled with necessary supplementary elements. Generally, oil, gas, pulverized coal, or pulverized petroleum coke is used as a fuel in rotary kilns. Rotary kiln is able to function over a wide range of temperature and handle a wide-ranging variety of waste components. Rotary kiln is often used for waste treatment through thermal destruction. The rotary kiln market is expected to increase exponentially worldwide as it controls and reduces fuel consumption, reduces emissions, measures accurate product temperature inside and outside the kiln, and prevents overheating and under heating.
Covid -19 impact on industry -
COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in rotary kiln market industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of rotary kiln market significantly since the last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020.
COVID-19 has already affected the sales of equipment and machinery in the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to cause a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year.
The major demand for equipment and machinery was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting the demand for equipment and machinery.
Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on its cash reserves. Equipment and machinery companies can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players would have to modify their investment plans.
Equipment and machinery manufacturers must focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond toward immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19
Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis
Certain factors that drives the growth of rotary kiln market are increase in demand of the rotary kiln in industry.
Rising demand of the Rotary kiln in industry
Manufacturers of cement and lime are installing and expanding more plants to meet the rising demand for cement and steel in the construction industry. These manufacturers are focusing on increasing their production capacity by installing new cement and lime producing plants, and this is expected to drive the demand for rotary kiln systems. As a result, the rotary kiln market is likely to grow at an impressive pace in the upcoming years.
These fluctuating prices of raw materials affect the construction of rotary kilns. Any instability in prices of raw materials such as steel, which is one of key materials in construction of rotary kilns creates a direct effect on the production cost.
