Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers Market Overview
A shell and tube heat exchanger is a type of heat exchanger. It is the most common heat exchanger type in oil refineries and other large chemical processes and is suitable for higher-pressure applications. As the name suggests, this type of heat exchanger is composed of a shell with a package of tubes inside it.
In order to transfer heat between the two fluids, one fluid passes through the pipe, while another fluid flows over the tubes. The tube collection is considered a package of tubes, which may be composed of many types of tubes.
Due to increasing demand for advanced modern equipment in the petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and power generation industries, offering high performance and corrosion resistance, the Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers market is projected to expand at a significant pace.
Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers Market: Dynamics
Growing knowledge of the benefits of renewable energy sources over traditional sources has led to an expanded use of renewable energy sources, thereby driving the segment of power generation. In hydroelectric dams, shell and tube heat exchangers are used as coolers to reduce the transformers, engines, and turbines' downtime. These are excellent for applications for heat recovery, pre-heating and effluent cooling applications.
The need for successful thermal management in the storage and transport of food products is projected to be led by a growing demand for manufactured and nutritious products. Over the projected era, increasing questions about corrosion resistance in food processing facilities are likely to increase demand for shell and tube heat exchangers.
The higher raw material prices, the transfer of the end-user demand from developed countries to developing countries, and the manufacturing costs are the key constraints on the development of the market for shell and tube heat exchangers. In the area of heat exchangers, the regional market offers immense capacity and prospects.
The robust presence of oil and gas deposits is projected to have a positive effect on demand development in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, and Columbia.
COVID-19 crisis impact
The ongoing crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic has affected all industry verticals resulting in subdued capital investments, retardation of production rate and supply to end procurers. The shell & tube heat exchangers industry is no exception to this effect and is understood to undertake a significant dent in the planned growth rate in the current fiscal.
With regards to the growth trend specific to shell & tube heat exchangers market, a downturn in growth is expected to have been observed in the 3 quarters of ongoing fiscal.
The recovery of Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers towards threshold growth rate is expected to incur over next 4-6 quarters which is critically dependent on end user sentiment for new sales and procurement provided the supporting rules and policies by the regional governments.
