2016-2020 Centrifugal Pump Market Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Demand for centrifugal pumps in the industrial segment increased 4.2% between 2020 and 2021, giving the combined centrifugal pump markets a year-over-year growth of 4.1% in 2021, according to the Future Market Insights report.

Increasing requirement in the oil and gas and chemical industries will drive the centrifugal pump market to rise at 4.6% CAGR between 2021 and 2031 in comparison to the 2.3% CAGR registered during 2016-2020.

Centrifugal pumps are used to transfer fluids in inter-and-intra facilities. Over the years the market gained from various advancements in material used for manufacturing these pumps. Companies introduced variants that can withstand high pressure, thanks to research and development in the material sciences sector.

The food and beverage industry requires food grade pumps. Consequently, companies introduced advanced pumps that will adhere to regulations provided by the bureau of food standards.

The chemical Industry on the other hand uses centrifugal pumps to transfer and store fluids, which are prone to reactions. Industrial processes involved in chemical manufacturing are complex and intricate.

Given a myriad of transferring operations, it's imperative to source the most versatile, reliable, and efficient pumping technology. Centrifugal pumps can move higher viscosity fluids with ease, from medium to high viscosity fluids, liquefied gases, and water-like fluids. The technology has proven effective in the chemical plant environment, with installation costs resulting in lower total costs over the lifespan of the pump.

The industry is also making a shift towards incorporating Internet of Things, which will enable the pump operators to monitor velocity, flow rate, and more from remote locations. Smart assistant tools are being developed for insights into possible fault conditions, reporting, runtime, and detailed operational data visualization.

The technology will be able to provide real-time control of all pump parameters, including speed, flow rate, and dispensing volume. Push notifications will provide alerts for operating conditions and error messages.

Will Technological Advancements Hold Key to Centrifugal Pumps Sales in Future?

The domestic segment of the centrifugal pump market has considerably expanded in the recent past owing to the implementation of modern technology in manufacturing and monitoring operations.

Electronics and computers have infiltrated every aspect of our lives, and variable speed drives (VSDs), SCADA systems, and condition monitoring equipment have inevitably entered the pumps industry.

In-line pumping units with integral VSDs now dominate the domestic market. Pump selection software has sped up the process of selections while also expanding marketing opportunities. CAD and CFD have reached new heights for communications.

Energy costs usually outweigh other operational costs. System improvements frequently result in significant cost savings. However, enacting appropriate legislation is nearly impossible.

Despite the fact that pump efficiency improvements yield relatively small returns for large investments, South Korea and China have set up legislation to improve efficiency. The European Commission has set a goal to improve the efficiency of water pumps as part of its Energy Using Products Directive including methods for identifying and eliminating poor performers.

Centrifugal pumps are most suitable for low viscosity fluids, since the pumping action generates high liquid shear. As viscosity increases, pump performance diminishes due to friction loss. Most pumps are self-primed, which adds up to its benefits.

What is the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the Centrifugal Pump Market?

Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, production and supply chain activities witnessed a slump in 2020. However, consumption will improve with economic recovery in the post-pandemic period. The COVID-19 outbreak had a positive impact on demand for centrifugal pumps owing to WHO requirements to minimize virus transmission through sewage water.

These guidelines encourage the use of biological wastewater treatment systems, generating demand from the water and wastewater industry in the near future.

As supply and distribution networks recover, company operations have started to expand steadily. In light of this, the pandemic is unlikely to have a long-term effect on the demand for centrifugal pumps.
