Stainless steel segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022

The stainless-steel segment accounted for the largest global market share in 2022 and will likely retain its market position throughout the anticipated period. The growth of the segment market can be largely attributed to its numerous beneficial characteristics and properties, including exceptional corrosion resistance properties, durability & longevity, and hygienic processing, which makes them suitable for use in the food and pharmaceuticals industries.

Regulatory requirements and industry standards are also driving the stainless-steel segment, as many industries, particularly in food and pharmaceutical production, have imposed strict regulations and guidelines for equipment materials and the proliferation of stainless steel to ensure compliance with these regulations.

The carbon steel segment is anticipated to gain a significant growth rate over the coming years, mainly attributable to its high compatibility with various other materials, cost-effectiveness, relative ease of maintenance and repair, and the growing adoption to provide withstanding capabilities in rigorous operating conditions.

12 to 18 inches segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The 12 to 18 inches segment held the majority of market revenue share in 2022, mainly driven by its efficient processing capabilities and ability to handle a significant volume of material and efficiently achieve fine particle size reduction. Most pin mills have disc diameters of 12 to 18, offering flexibility and customization options to meet specific processing requirements, and can be equipped with different types of pins, screens, and liners, allowing manufacturers to optimize the machine for their particular needs.

Moreover, continuous advancements in pin mill technology which have improved their efficiency, ease of use, and maintenance and have made the 12 to 18 inches segment more attractive to manufacturers looking for reliable and advanced grinding solutions, are fostering the segment market growth at a significant pace.

Chemicals & petrochemicals segment is expected to witness highest growth during forecast period

The chemicals segment is projected to grow fastest due to the increasing number of pin mills applications in chemical and petrochemical industries, including pulverizing and grinding materials like pigments, resins, and polymers. They are also gaining traction in applications for particle size reduction of materials which are quite difficult to process with the help of other grinding technologies, thereby propelling the market.

The pharmaceuticals segment led the industry market with a substantial market share in 2022, which is highly attributable to the growing need for precise control over the particle size distribution to ensure optimal drug performance and bioavailability. With the continuous growth in the global pharmaceutical sector and surge in the healthcare infrastructure promoting the development of new drug formulations, the demand for advanced pin mills has grown drastically in the forecast period.

North America region dominated the global market in 2022

North American region dominated the global market with a considerable share because of the constantly rising adoption of innovative and advanced grinding technologies, growing investments in the pharmaceutical sector, and a surge in demand for processed food products across the region. In addition, the widespread focus of government authorities on promoting domestic manufacturing and reducing the dependence on import activities for various crucial products is fostering the market at a rapid pace.

The Europe region is anticipated to be the fastest growing region with a healthy CAGR over the study period, owing to the continuous surging focus on food safety and quality and increasing penetration and emphasis towards maintaining product sustainability. Along with this, the presence of a diverse industrial landscape encompassing sectors like food processing, minerals, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals requiring mineral size reductions is pushing the market's growth forward.
