Report Overview

The global pumps market size was valued at USD 92.91 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2% from 2020 to 2028. Increasing investments in the oil & gas sector, technological advancements in pump manufacturing, and new product launches focusing on enhanced performance are expected to have a positive impact on the market. The chemical industry is expected to be negatively impacted by the novel coronavirus outbreak on numerous fronts, including operational and supply chain disruptions, lowered demand & productivity, and potentially tightening credit markets. Hence, the declining chemical industry is anticipated to hinder the market growth during the pandemic.

U.S. pumps market size, by product type, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The growth of the pumps market in the U.S. was significantly impacted in 2020 owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is reflected by the suspended operations and disrupted import-export activities. The market is anticipated to establish low growth over the forecast period, wherein the demand is majorly attributed to various end-use industries including power, water & wastewater treatment, and oil & gas.

Increasing investments in the exploration and production activities by the oil & gas companies across the globe are anticipated to boost the demand for pumps in the oil & gas industry. The rising number of infrastructure upgrades, in terms of changing or the installation of new pipelines, is expected to have a positive impact on the market.

The advancements in pump technology have resulted in enhanced basic process tasks, increasing the reliability of the pumps, and providing a long-term reduction in everyday operating processes. These advanced pumps are mostly used in industries, such as industrial wastewater, agriculture, power, and chemicals.

Manufacturers are also focusing on new product launches keeping in mind the dynamic requirement of the market. However, new energy efficiency standards that are to be incorporated may require redesigning of pumps by manufacturers, which may incur high costs and time, thereby restraining the market growth.

Product Type Insights

The centrifugal pump segment led the market in 2020 and accounted for 52% of the global revenue share. Centrifugal pumps are used for higher flows and hence, are extensively used in the chemical industry. These are preferred for low-pressure and high-capacity pumping applications of liquids with viscosities ranging between 0.1 and 200 cP.

Centrifugal pump is further segmented into axial flow, radial flow, and mixed flow pumps. The market of axial flow pumps is expected to show significant growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for high-power pumps in flood dewatering and water & wastewater treatment applications. Axial and radial flow pumps provide superior efficiencies and have low pulsation due to which these pumps are used for a higher delivery head at a low or medium flow rate.

The demand for positive displacement pumps is estimated to witness growth at the fastest CAGR of 3.4%, in terms of revenue, from 2020 to 2028 owing to their efficient working at lower speed and consistent flow rates. Moreover, the preference for positive displacement pumps in the oil & gas industry is likely to complement segment growth.

Manufacturers are using technology to their advantage by developing innovative pumping solutions. New products are equipped with precision control and efficiency using electronic sensors and other digital software. Moreover, the suitability of reciprocating pumps in pumping hazardous fluids is likely to boost the product demand.

Application Insights

The agriculture application led the market in 2020 with a revenue share of more than 25%. Technological advancements in the field of irrigation and farming, especially in emerging countries, coupled with the rising usage of pumps for several purposes in the agriculture segment, such as irrigation, dewatering of crops, reuse, are likely to boost the growth. The construction segment is also estimated to witness significant growth from 2020 to 2028. The rapid development of housing complexes and commercial buildings in prime cities would require proper systems for water availability, disposal of sewage, and treatment of wastewater. Moreover, heavy investments in public infrastructures, such as offices, hospitals, and housing societies, are expected to boost the demand for pumps in the construction industry.

Global pumps market share, by application, 2020 (%)

The demand for pumps in water & wastewater applications is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2020 to 2028. The increasing requirement of pump stations in wastewater treatment plants, where gravity flow is not feasible, coupled with high flow rate deliverability and high transmission velocity is likely to augment the market growth. Increasing utilization of shale gas in the energy and manufacturing industries and growing shale gas exploration activities due to technological advancements, such as horizontal and hydraulic drilling, are anticipated to boost the product demand in the oil & gas sector. Furthermore, the penetration of petrochemical products in modern energy systems, such as wind turbine blades, solar panels, batteries, and Electric Vehicle (EV) parts, is expected to drive the market growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific led the market and accounted for 46.6% of the global revenue share in 2020. Rapid industrialization in the developing economies of Asia Pacific and rising investments in manufacturing, commercial, and industrial projects have contributed to the overall growth of the regional market. Furthermore, increased product penetration in various end-use industries including agriculture, petrochemical, and HVAC is anticipated to complement market growth.

Japan has been focusing on transitioning to natural gas and renewable energy sources. Companies, such as JERA, have been focusing on adding gas-fired units fueling the demand for pumps in the country. The government regulations focused on energy efficiency and conservation are further expected to drive the demand for efficient pumps over the forecast period.

Advanced processing capabilities, a highly skilled workforce, and growing R&D initiatives in the U.S. have positively impacted the North America regional market. The growing construction industry and increasing demand for power in Canada coupled with ongoing discoveries of oil & gas reserves and their exploration in Mexico are expected to support the market growth in North America.

The market in Brazil is expected to witness steady growth from 2020 to 2028 owing to a considerable rise in construction activities in the industrial and commercial sectors. In addition, an increase in the establishment of independent power plants and advancements in technology are anticipated to fuel the product demand in Brazil over the forecast period.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Manufacturers in the market are focusing on launching new, innovative products for various applications using advanced technology. For instance, in February 2020, Weir Mineral launched three Lewis pumps namely, Horizontal Process Pump, Axial Pump, and Vertical High-Pressure Molten Salt Pump. Several manufacturers had to suffer losses due to the pandemic owing to the volatility of raw material prices, supply chain disruptions, and poor cash flows. This accelerated the number of acquisitions and mergers in the industry with players, such as Ingersoll Rand and Grundfos, being the leaders. Some prominent players in the global pumps market include:
