Shelling machines are mainly used to separate nuts such as almond, peanut, and cashew from the shell. The machine includes a separating chamber, shelling chamber, and a motor (1HP). Shelling or separation is an important process in the production of groundnut. It is the name of process of removal of the groundnut seed from its pod by compression, impact action, and a combination or shearing of more of these methods. The shelling operation is of two types—traditional and mechanical. Theseshelling machines use different types of materials depending on durability, cost and availability, strength and rigidity of object and weight and friction. Shelling machines ease up the process in the assembly line and increases the efficiency of the separation process of groundnuts from its shell.
COVID-19 impact on industry -
COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production of various products in the shelling machineindustry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries. This has hampered the growth of shelling machine industrysignificantly from 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
Increased efficiency ofseparation process
Shelling is an essential process in the production of nuts, seeds, and grain, thereby importance of effective shelling is one of the major factors that boosts the growth of the shelling machines market.Moreover, surge in production and consumption of dried fruit such as cashew, almond, peanuts, walnuts, prune, and others increase the demand to improve the efficiency of the production process which is expected to drivethe shelling machines market growth. Shelling machines ease up the process in the assembly line and increases the efficiency of the separation process of removinggroundnuts from its shell. This is expected to boost the demand for shelling machines in agriculture industries during the forecast period.as there is rise in consumption and production of dried fruit products such as almond, cashew, and prune is expected to boost the demand for shelling machines around the world.
Increase in consumer inclination toward modern retail formats
Increasein demand for saving more working time while separating groundnut from its shell is augmenting the demand for shelling machines across the world. This is mainlybecause traditional shelling is done by stick beating, animal trampling, or pod pressing by hand.for this process to be done traditional would be very time consuming and cantake considerable time to separate the groundnut from its shell. The rate at whichglobal urban population and per capita income is increasing that stimulate the factors that are likely to push the demand for dried fruits, which indirectly influences the demand for shelling machines. As now there isIncreasing consumer inclination toward convenience stores and advancements of modern retail formats thatpropel the demand for shelling machines, thus fueling the global market in the coming year.but there is limiting factor that may prohibit the growth ofShelling machines that is its veryexpensive and are unaffordable for small-scale farmers and producers, which is a major factor that isexpected to hinder the global shelling machines market in the next few years. Furthermore, shelling machines are automatic devices to be used or operated only by skilled labor.it also increases the labor cost, which in turn is anticipated to adversely impact the growth of the shelling machines market.
