The global hydraulic power unit market is expected to experience boom over the forecast period owing to rising construction and increasing production capacities of oil fields coupled with growing stress on the agricultural sector. It had witnessed considerable growth in the past decades since its implementation in hydraulic machinery. The hydraulic power unit is a vital part of a hydraulic system as it can generate a significant quantum of power to initiate mostly any type of hydraulic ram. They draw power using Pascal’s law, i.e., through ratios of area and pressure. The hydraulic power unit industry includes applications such as machine tools, aerospace test equipment, automation systems, meat processing machinery, mobile equipment, rolling mill machinery, and material handling equipment. Also, they are applied in agricultural equipment, paper mill machinery, oil exploration, oil spill clean-up equipment, industrial process, marine equipment, construction equipment, and theatrical & production equipment. With rising demand for these machineries, the hydraulic power unit market is expected to witness high growth as a result of rapid industrialization.
A hydraulic system applies enclosed fluid to transmit energy from one point to another, and thus, creates linear motion, rotation, or force. The hydraulic power unit implements the pressure that runs cylinders, motors, and other parts of a hydraulic system. These power units, unlike standard pumps, use pervasive pressurization networks for moving fluid; and comprise of temperature control devices. The mechanical specifications and characteristics of a hydraulic power unit defines the kind of projects it will be effective for.
In terms of applications, the hydraulic power unit market can be segmented into industrial, mobile, and other intermittent or medium-duty applications. The major portion of the market is accrued to the mobile applications owing to the ability to provide higher power transmission in a comparatively small size. Industrial application is utilized primarily in industries, such as steel and automotive where heavy-duty applications are required. Rising agriculture and construction activities, coupled with the replacement of old units, is the key driver for the hydraulic power unit market.
In terms of regions, the hydraulic power unit market can be segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Africa & the Middle East. Among these, the highest growth rates, over the past few years, was witnessed by Asia Pacific, owing to numerous construction activities and higher industrial investment in the region. On the other hand, North America and Europe enjoyed the dominant share of the hydraulic power unit market, as of 2013. Meanwhile, Africa and Latin America enjoyed decent market share, owing to application of hydraulic power units in many oil field operations, material handling, and construction equipment.
Over the forecast period, Asia Pacific is expected to maintain consistent growth, owing to huge upcoming infrastructural projects, increasing demand for agricultural outputs, and growing housing developments. On the other hand, the European hydraulic power unit market is expected to witness below average growth owing to the mature construction sector in the region. African and Latin American markets are expected to grow over the forecast period on account of increasing oil exploration activities coupled with rising standard of living demanding better housing facilities and growing stress on agricultural outputs.
