Soil mixers are the machines used to mix the soil to get the desired concentrations of various components and to enhance the homogeneity of soil. Soil mixers are used to create structural elements for foundations and for retaining walls. They are used for improving the soil quality, soil stabilization, solidification of subsurface contaminants. Soil mixers are used for mixing chemical reagents for hazardous waste treatment, environmental remediation, sludge solidification, lagoon stabilization, and chemical oxidation. Soil mixers are also used for the construction of underground vertical barriers for groundwater containment and treatment. The soil mixing applications and the need for soil mixers have grown significantly over the last two decades; it is because both engineers, as well as farmers, have realized the cost saving benefits of soil mixing techniques over other alternative technologies. Soil mixers these days are available with different mixing capacities such as ½ cubic meter, 1 cubic meter, and 2 cubic meters. Some soil mixers can mix the batches in time as less as 3 minutes. By soil mixers, farmers and gardeners can mix any combination of different potting materials such as chemicals, fertilizers, peat moss, sand, soil, sawdust and wood shavings, etc.
Soil Mixers Market: Market Dynamics
The availability of soil mixers on rent is widening the scope for the growth of soil mixers market because buying a soil mixer is not cost effective. Farmers can save the crop production cost by renting the soil mixers. The usefulness of soil mixers for environmental remediation is fueling the growth of its market. The specificity of soil mixer tools and drums as per the construction project of the customer is also contributing to the growth of its market, as they can be optimized as per the project. The high initial cost of soil mixers is restraining the growth of its market and the lack of operating guidance amongst farmers and workers is the challenge faced. The features such as replaceable liners and mesh exit gate in the soil mixers these days are widening the scope of its market. One of the major factors fueling the growth of soil mixers market is that they help in the stable incorporation of additives which provides better mixing with less amount of ingredients. Manufacturers these days are coming up with the soil mixers with various attachments, for standard excavators. By this, the need for mobilization of single-use carriers is avoided; which in turn helps in reducing the cost of mobilization. Soil mixers with attachments are ideal for in-situ remediation and stabilization. The soil mixers help in maintaining the soil ecosystem and can be included in the green construction projects. The availability of customized soil mixers in the market with larger capacities and variation as per the customer is a recent trend.
Soil Mixers Market: Segmentation Overview
Soil mixers have wide applications in the dry soil mixing. Dry soil mixing is a kind of ground improvement technique; which softens and moistens the clays, peats, and other damaged soils by mechanically mixing them with the dry cement binder. Companies are also manufacturing versatile soil mixers such as axial mixers, double header mixers, and transverse mixers. These soil mixers can handle a variety of soils as well as various degrees of components for thorough mixing. Companies these days also realize that the one-size-fits-all is an old approach and thus are facilitating soil mixers understanding that each project is unique. Mass mixing and column mixing are some of the techniques for in-situ ground development.
Soil Mixers Market: Regional Outlook
The global soil mixers market geographically is segmented as North America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific excluding Japan, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe hold a significant market share of soil mixers market owing to the fully automated agriculture and horticulture practices. Furthermore, the increase in R & D activities related to agricultural automation, wherein soil mixers are useful machines, aids in boosting the growth of soil mixers market in the region. The market in the APEJ region is more inclined towards the growing demand for soil mixers because of the increasing advancement in agriculture, horticulture, waste management and construction technologies.
