Stage Insights

The single-stage segment led the market and accounted for 62.8% of the global revenue share in 2022. The single-stage segment is expected to grow progressively during the forecasted years owing to stable working performance in installation and requires low pressure with a high flow rate.

The single-stage centrifugal pump primarily finds its application in industrial pumping, slurry pumping, and sewage pumping. The single-stage centrifugal pump is also preferred for applications with low-to-moderate dynamic heads. These pumps are majorly employed in water pumping stations because of their low maintenance cost and better reliability.

The multi-stage segment is expected to register a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period. This particular segment is expected to grow progressively over the forecast period owing to high energy efficiency, easy installation, lower internal friction losses of these variants, and optimized operation.

The multi-stage centrifugal pump is available in different proportions based on application, volume, and budget. The small-size pumps are appropriate for applications such as water supply piping, heating plants, firefighting operations, agriculture, autoclaves, boiler feed, irrigation, and others.

Design Insights

The radial flow pump segment led the market and accounted for 65.0% of the global revenue share in 2022. Radial flow pumps work by pushing water toward the outside edge of a revolving impeller. The discharge is then caught by the pump casing, where the kinetic energy is transformed into pressure energy before leaving the pump.

The mixed flow pump market is expected to bolster owing to benefits including high low rates with low-pressure requirements, improved discharge rates with relatively low head velocities, and the ability to be adjusted to operate effectively and efficiently with little aerodynamic loss.

The demand for axial flow pumps is projected to increase as a result of the recent global growth of the water and wastewater treatment industries. This is due to a combination of factors, including population growth, rapid urbanization and industry, and technical improvements, including an increase in the demand for freshwater. Throughout the forecast period, the market is also anticipated to be driven by increased government spending on the growth of the power-generating and petroleum sectors.

Type Insights

The overhung impeller segment led the market and accounted for 46.2% of the global revenue share in 2022. Overhung impellers are widely used in commercial, residential, and industrial applications, which has contributed to the expansion of the overhung market. Due to their lower cost when compared to bearing pumps, they are also used in several end-use sectors for the generation of power.

Several causes, including accelerating industrialization, technical advancements, and expanding urbanization, have contributed to the dramatic increase in the demand for energy fuel during the past few years. The penetration of the centrifugal pump is anticipated to increase in several end-use industries, including water and wastewater treatment, power generation, and oil and gas.

The vertically suspended pumps are offered by different companies some product offering includes VS1/VS2 vertically suspended pumps, VS3 vertically suspended axial flow, VS4 vertical sump pump, VS0 submersible pumps, and many others. The wide product offering by different companies is expected to bolster market growth during the forecast period.

End-use Insights

The agriculture end-use led the market and accounted for 26.0% of the global revenue share in 2022. Increasing urban population, rising investment, and favorable government policies promoting the agriculture sector are projected to foresee tremendous demand for centrifugal pumps in the agriculture sector in developing markets including China, India, and Bangladesh.
