The global pumps market is estimated to witness a moderate growth rate of around 3.5% over the period of 2019–2028. Increasing adoption of pumps across end-users for a variety of applications is expected to propel the demand for pumps globally. Rising public and private expenditure in the modern water infrastructure sector is driving the growth of the global pumps market. Countries are building state-of-the-art flood control systems in flood-prone areas which are also expected to soar the demand for pumps.
Growing concern regarding the depleting level of groundwater will further foster water conservation efforts, thus propelling the global pump market growth. Moreover, the increasing utilization of pumps in industrial applications such as chemical and pharmaceutical is another pivotal factor that is positively influencing the market growth. Surging construction activities and rapid industrialization in developing economies have boosted the growth indicators across mining, oil & gas industry, and water infrastructure which are leading factors for the global market.
Based on type, centrifugal pumps are expected to generate more revenue
On the basis of type, the market is segmented into centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps. The centrifugal pump segment is dominating the global pumps market in 2022 and is further expected to maintain its dominating position over the forecast period. Centrifugal pumps are the most widely used pump as they are one of the best technologies for water and thin liquids and slurries that are encountered across every industry.
Additionally, centrifugal pumps are highly scalable and can be applied in small sizes for low-flow applications such as circulator pumps for HVAC heating systems at 10 to 15 GPM, as well as in scaled-up sizes for high flow applications over 100,000 GPM, such as in power plant condenser cooling. Centrifugal pumps are also highly scalable in terms of pressure, and with multistage designs can deliver pressures to thousands of psi, such as required for feedwater pumps supplying steam boilers in power plants or seawater to reverse osmosis membrane filtration systems.
The Asia Pacific leads the global pumps market
Geographically, the market is analyzed into North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. Pumps have been in significant demand on account of general economic activities across the globe. Moreover, in countries like China and India, rapid growth in the demand for pumps is expected due to rapidly growing industrial, agricultural, and construction activities in the countries. Developing economies are focusing on expanding their infrastructure which is leading to a higher level of new pump sales; whereas, developed regions such as North America and Western Europe have comparatively low organic growth which is hindering the new pump sales to replacements and aftermarket parts.
