The global dewatering pump market is anticipated to witness significant expansion in the forthcoming years. Dewatering equipment is predominantly used to remove water from a surface. Their major applications include power plants, construction industries, thermal plants, cement plants, tunnel construction, flood dewatering, and underground mines among others. Rising application is anticipated to propel the market growth in the near future. Unwatering and water control are alternate terms used to express the expulsion or draining surface water or groundwater from a construction site, riverbed, mine pole or caisson, by evaporation or pumping.
Dewatering is used extensively in subsurface excavation for foundations, constructing cellar space, or shoring a construction site to lower the groundwater tables. Dewatering pumps are mobile equipment installed at construction sites situated at lower ground levels to control and maintain groundwater water level. These equipment are cost-efficient as they reduce solids handling costs along with disposal expenses charged on a unit weight basis. The volume of water present in landfill bound solids waste and unprocessed wastewater slush can increase the cost of removal and treatment services by manifold.
Governments of South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and Morocco among other countries from the Middle East and Africa are directing their resources and attention to refining drinking water amenities in urban and rural areas and exploring newer water sources. It is predicted to boost sales of equipment with augmented capacity and efficiency for domestic and agricultural applications. Countries with a sizeable number of desalinization projects are also projected to contribute significantly to the development of the dewatering pump market, as most parts of the world still face challenges when it comes to providing running water.
The two main types of dewatering pumps include submersible and non-submersible. Submersible equipment has an airtight sealed motor, closely clamped to the body of the machine. The main advantage offered by this system is prevention from cavitation, a problem in case of high elevational difference between fluid surface and equipment. This equipment pushes fluid to the surface and is more efficient than the jet pumps.
Applications of submersible equipment include drainage, pond fillers, and sewage, general industrial, and slurry pumping. Other application areas include residential, commercial, municipal and industrial water extraction, water wells, and oil wells. Submersible equipment are also used in oil production to provide an efficient form of artificial lift. On the other hand, non-submersible dewatering pumps can be used on land surfaces; as they function differently from their submersible counterparts. Non-Submersible equipment can be petrol fuelled, however; they are not waterproof.
Sulzer, Grundfos, The Weir Group, Xylem, Ebara, KSB, Tsurumi Pump, Wacker Neuson, Honda Power Equipment, Zoeller Pumps, Nanfang Pump Industry, Mersino Dewatering, Veer Pump, and Zhejiang EO Pump are among the top manufacturers of the dewatering pump equipment market. Business expansion and greater market penetration remain the principal aim of manufacturers. Hence, they are extending their product portfolio and strengthening sales and distribution network.
Leading players focus on shifting their production bases to Asia Pacific to capitalize on the economies of scale. Long-term business agreements with the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) companies are expected to provide high and stable sales to international manufacturers. Maximum sales of pumps with small and medium capacity take place through distributors and retailers, who generally hold multi-branded and wide variety of products. Developing strong distribution and aftersales service network at the regional and local levels can provide significant growth opportunities. Strong focus on life-cycle costs analysis and reducing operating costs through energy-efficient solutions is highly required for product differentiation.
The dewatering pump market is growing at a strong pace coupled with development of advanced technology and mergers and acquisitions at regional and international levels. However, the new entrants are expected to face challenges while competing with the existing participants owing to consistency, product quality, and cutting-edge production technologies.
