Domestic Booster Pumps Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Domestic Booster Pumps Market by Application – Kitchen, Bathroom, Water Heating Units, et al for 2020-2030


A booster pump is a mechanical system whose function is to regulate the pressure of the liquid by maintaining the flow rate and providing impetus to transfer water from one area to another. Since water supply is an essential amenity in the residential sector, the need to maintain regular water supply necessitates the usage of booster pumps.

Home and domestic booster pumps for water are electricity-based centrifugal pumps with a non-return valve and house speed pumps which start operating when the water pressure drops below the pre-set low-pressure level. Similarly, speed pumps stop operating when the pressure of the water touches the high-pressure point.

By doing so, domestic booster pump assure the water transfer rate stays within the desired range, and wastage of water is minimal. Home booster pumps are designed to cater to the water supply needs in the residential sector to ensure an uninterrupted supply of water for water heater units, kitchen, and bathroom, among other application areas.

As high-rise buildings become a norm in the swiftly urbanizing world, there is a high demand for booster pumps for domestic market to ensure water reaches all the floors. Likewise, the growth of the global domestic booster pumps market is driven by the thriving household construction industry, which subsequently propels the demand for essential systems including domestic booster pumps for water.

Impetus from Infrastructure Development Activities

The sales of domestic water booster pump are directly influenced by the growing number of houses and residential complexes. According to the October issue of monthly residential construction statistics released by the US Census Bureau, over 1.4 Mn residences finished construction in September 2020, registering a 25% spike from the preceding year.

Furthermore, another 1.4 Mn residences began construction in the same month, recording an 11% increase from the previous year. The same data revealed that more than 1.5 Mn building permits were granted in September 2020, indicating an 8.1% increase from September 2019.

The growing number of houses clearly allude to the widening growth opportunities for players manufacturing booster pumps for the domestic market.

While the aforementioned statistics represent a developed economy, the presence of an equally flourishing residential construction industry in the emerging economies of East Asia and Latin America cement long-term growth prospects for the market.

Moreover, macroeconomic factors such as rapid urbanization and increasing population density worldwide will continue to propel the demand for essential utilities such as home and domestic booster pumps across flats, farmhouses, houses, and guest houses, among other residential complexes.

Need for Energy Saving Technology

In the recent past, energy-saving technology has gained prominence in the residential sector owing to rising awareness among consumers regarding the need to save energy.

The demand for sustainable utilities that consume minimal energy is gaining remarkable traction, thereby driving demand for variable frequency drive (VFD) based hydro-pneumatic booster pumps.

Since they operate using VFD technology, hydro-pneumatic booster pumps are used to maintain uniform and constant water pressure in all tap points and water outlets in the high-rise buildings ensuring neither water nor energy is wasted. Since only the required amount of water is used, spending on both the water and energy is seamlessly reduced.

In addition to minimal environmental effect, hydro-pneumatic pumps require less maintenance, subsequently reducing the maintenance costs. Manufactures are developing VFD-technology-based pumps to leverage evolving consumer preference and are working on raising awareness pertaining to environmental and economic advantages associated with these designs.

Market players are directing their efforts towards upscaling production of plug-and-play booster pumps for the domestic market to overcome several restraints of existing conventional designs. Rikos Energy, offers smart systems by the brand Wolfpack Series pumps, which are pre-programmed with VFD functions to increase efficiency and save energy.

Technical Challenges

Although booster pumps are vital components in the residential sector, certain technical difficulties associated with them are limiting the adoption to an extent, asserting consumers to seek powerful, commercial booster pumps, especially for large residential complexes with high population density and high consumption of water.

When not operated for prolonged periods, these pumps tend to get clogged, blocking the smooth passage of water, and clearing the coagulations requires maintenance which in turn results in additional expenses.

To lower the probability of coagulations, market players are focusing on proper installation methodologies, which act as the root cause in the majority of pump suction issues.

Also, air trapping in pipes is an issue that metamorphoses into a larger problem as the volume of liquid increases. To avoid this, end-users have to install air release valves, which increases the maintenance expenses and requires replacement of pipes in some cases.

Other shortcomings of oversized, overpowered and fixed-speed domestic booster pumps such as malfunctioning of valves and internal impellers are also acting as challenges to the steady growth of the market. Furthermore, the high cost of installation due to numerous components involved such as sensors, control units, relays, etc. is limiting the sales.

Region-wise Insights

East Asia Domestic Booster Pumps Market

East Asia, spearheaded by China, continues to be one of the leading markets for domestic booster pumps globally. The region's lucrativeness is attributed to rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing economies such as China and South Korea, where the number of residential complexes is rising year on year.

For instance, in China, construction of over 6 Mn apartments was completed in the year 2018, registering a significant uptick from the previous decade.

As the number of houses across these regions continues to register a notable increase year on year, the demand for residential booster pumps will prevail high for the years to come.
