Rising expectations of customers in the past few decades have led to increased spending by the end-user industry globally to improve the quality of industrial pumps along with installing advanced process control. This has led to increased spending by pump manufacturers in the region in an attempt to improve energy efficiency, which is likely to drive the demand for improved energy-efficient pumps over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant negative impact on the growth of the pumps market. In the U.S. in 2020, as evidenced by operations being halted and import-export activities being hampered. The demand was primarily attributed to a number of end-use industries, including electricity, water and wastewater treatment, and oil and gas, and the market was predicted to experience sluggish growth throughout the pandemic.

Product Type Insights

The centrifugal pump segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 52.1% in 2022. 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 and 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 positive displacement pump segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.1% during the forecast period, 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 product demand.

Application Insights

The agriculture segment held the largest revenue share of 25.5% in 2022. Technological advancements in the field of farming & irrigation, especially in emerging countries, coupled with the rising usage of pumps for several purposes in the agriculture segment, such as irrigation, dewatering of crops, and reuse, are likely to boost the growth. The construction segment is also estimated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. 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, housing societies and hospitals, are expected to boost the demand for pumps in the construction industry.

Global Pumps market share and size, 2022

The demand for pumps in water & wastewater applications is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. The increasing requirement for 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 hydraulic & horizontal 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 solar panels, wind turbine blades, electric vehicle (EV) parts and batteries is expected to drive the market growth.

The chemical segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.1% over the forecast period. The growth of the chemical application is attributed to the expanding chemical industry which has led to a surge in demand for efficient and reliable pumping systems that can handle the transfer and processing of chemicals. Additionally, the advancements in pump technology, such as corrosion-resistant materials and improved sealing mechanisms are anticipated to drive the market growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 43.0% in 2022 and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period.
