An Incisive, In-depth Analysis on the Centrifugal Pumps Market

This study offers a comprehensive, 360 degree analysis on the Centrifugal Pumps market, bringing to fore insights that can help stakeholders identify the opportunities as well as challenges. It tracks the global Centrifugal Pumps market across key regions, and offers in-depth commentary and accurate quantitative insights. The study also includes incisive competitive landscape analysis, and provides key recommendations to market players on winning imperatives and successful strategies.

Centrifugal pump is defined as a mechanical device used in transfer and transportation of various types of liquid in most of the end use industries and are highly preferred for agricultural and domestic purposes. As the name suggests, the pump operates on the principal of centrifugal force, which converts rotational kinetic energy provided by a prime motor such as an electric motor, gasoline engine or steam turbine, into hydrodynamic energy of the moving liquid being pumped. Centrifugal pumps are the most broadly used pump type and are generally preferred over other pumps due to their design simplicity, smooth flow rate, wide range of capacity and ease of maintenance and operational efficiency. By product type, the centrifugal pumps market is segmented into single-stage pumps, multi-stage pump, axial & mixed flow pumps, and submersible pump and sealless & circulator pumps. The minimum range of a centrifugal pump can be 0.125 HP (horsepower) and can go up till 5000 hp. All centrifugal pump types mentioned above have been segmented into small, medium and high capacity/size depending on HP range. We have also segmented end use application for centrifugal pumps into industrial, agricultural and domestic use.

Market Dynamics

Global demand for centrifugal pumps is directly correlated to infrastructural developments activities worldwide. Governments of developing countries such as China and India are focusing on urbanization, which is expected to fuel the demand for centrifugal pumps, particularly in domestic, water and wastewater treatment industries. Increasing exploration activities for new sources of water, rising demand from SME’s and process industries, replacement of existing production plants and pumping systems are some other drivers expected to fuel the demand of global centrifugal pumps over the forecast period.

Presence of large number of Chinese players offering low priced centrifugal pumps acts as a restraint for most of the regional and global players offering centrifugal pumps. Moreover the replacement rate for centrifugal pumps is declining with increasing preference of long life and energy efficient pumps, which is another challenge faced by centrifugal pump manufacturers of centrifugal pumps globally.

The centrifugal pump industry is witnessing a trend of strategic acquisitions, with major player’s looking to expand in the global footprint. Even though the industry is largely fragmented with large number of players, organized players are advancing towards consolidation with large number of mergers and acquisitions taking place globally. With increasing energy cost and growing environmental awareness among end users, there has been higher adoption of for energy efficient centrifugal pumps by end users.

The trade-off between initial cost and life cycle cost has been playing a key role in the decision making of centrifugal pump end users

Product Type Analysis

The global centrifugal pump market is segmented on the basis of product type single-stage pump, multi-stage pump, sealless and circulator pump, axial and mixed flow and submersible pump. The submersible pump segment has been estimated to account for 27.8% share in terms of revenue in 2015, expanding at a healthy CAGR of 5.4% throughout the forecast period. The single- stage and multi-stage centrifugal pumps together accounted for 54.7% share of the overall centrifugal pumps market by the end of 2015. Each pump type is further segmented into small, medium and large capacity pumps on basis of HP (horsepower)

 End Use Analysis

On the basis of end use, the global centrifugal pump market is segmented into industrial, agricultural and domestic. The industrial segment has been estimated to account for 66.8% revenue share in 2015, whereas the agricultural segment is anticipated to expand at a highest CAGR of 4.9% over the forecast period. Increasing arable land for farming and agriculture is one of the key drivers for increasing demand of centrifugal pumps in the agricultural segment. The industrial segment is further sub-segmented into water & wastewater treatment industry, chemical, power, oil & gas, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage and other industries which include, mining, ore processing and pulp and paper industries. The water & wastewater treatment industry is the largest industrial segment with 35.5% share in 2014, expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period.
