In Sync with Construction Industry’s Growth

Hydraulic gear pumps find their fitment in the various construction equipment. In developing economies, such as India, Brazil, China, Argentina, urbanization is taking place at a faster rate, which in turn is expected to boost the growth of the construction industry.

Rampant expansion of the residential sector to cater to surging demand for urban housing spaces, especially across fast developing economies, is also supporting the growth of construction industry, and thereby pushing sales a broad range of construction equipment, including hydraulic gear pumps.

Versatility, Price Range and Right Fitment Applicability - Key Growth Levers

Hydraulic gear pumps have been traditionally used in various end-use industries, owing to their simple design, flexibility, and ease of use along with their versatility. These characteristics make hydraulic gear pumps an ideal choice for application in various chemical and industrial processes. Additionally, hydraulic gear pump price remains within an affordable range when compared with other substitute pump types that are available on market.

Increasing demand for industrial equipment from a large number of industries is directly linked to the demand for hydraulic gear pumps. Rising demand for user-friendly pump solutions, coupled with right fitment, will continue to bolster the demand for hydraulic gear pumps throughout the forecast period, 2020 - 2030.

The share of hydraulic gear pumps in terms of end use varies in key markets. The above Mekko chart represents an elucidated view of end use share of hydraulic gear pumps in 7 key countries, including Japan, Germany, the US, India, China, Brazil and South Africa.
The share of off highway vehicles is higher compared to other end use segments, particularly in Japan, China and South Africa. Automotive and processing industry are also shown as the key end-use segments; the share of former is greater in India whereas that of latter is larger in the US.

Threat of Substitutes: Key Challenges Facing Hydraulic Gear Pumps Manufacturers

In the recent years, factory automation has steadily gained traction. The construction equipment industry players are significantly utilizing intelligent machines significantly to improve the rate of industrial production, making it more energy- and cost-efficient. They are also focusing on maintaining the sustainability quotient by minimizing waste generation.

To meet the evolving requirements of consumers across the globe, end users are utilizing alternative pump solutions hydraulic gear pumps, owing to their operational inefficiency as compared to other advanced counterparts available on the market. For instance, electrically controlled medium pressure pumps are often preferred over gear pumps in case of agricultural equipment.Increasing adoption of other alternative pumping solutions such as piston pumps is expected to hamper demand for hydraulic gear pumps over the forecast period.

Hydraulic Gear Pumps: Region-wise Analysis

In the global market, East Asia, especially China and Japan would remain leading consumers of hydraulic gear pumps owing to strong presence of several production facilities of the construction equipment, material handling equipment and construction equipment including key players such as Mitsubishi, Hangcha Group and Komatsu Ltd among others. Alone Japan is holding more market share than Latin America and Middle East & Africa.

Alternative option for China, majority of the end use industry players are planning to shift to their production facilities to India and ASEAN countries due to COVID-19 impact. Supporting government initiatives by these governments could attract the global players to these countries which directly influence the opportunity for the said region. Moreover, North America also remain another key market, it currently captures around 3X market value when compared with that of Middle East & African market
