Industry Insights

The global welded spiral heat exchangers market size was valued at USD 1.4 billion in 2018 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% from 2019 to 2025. The market is expected to be driven by the growing demand for the product in petrochemicals, HVAC & refrigeration, food & beverages, and chemical industries, especially in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific and CSA.

Welded spiral heat exchangers are made by rolling two metal sheets around the central rod, thus forming two separate concentric channels. The end of the channel is sealed by welding. This provides an advantage to welded spiral heat exchangers over conventional heat exchangers as fluids are exposed to a much larger surface area. They also provide much higher thermal performance compared to conventional heat exchangers. Welded spiral heat exchanger is ideal for dangerous and aggressive fluids as leakage is practically excluded owing to welded channel construction.

U.S. Welded Spiral Heat Exchangers Market

Welded spiral heat exchangers are widely used in industries such as chemicals, food & beverages, HVAC & refrigeration, petrochemical, power generation, and pulp & paper. In addition, rising demand from the chemical industry, technological innovation, and increasing focus on improving efficiency standards are further expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

The U.S. market witnessed considerable growth on account of growing adoption of welded spiral heat exchangers in chemical, petrochemical, food & beverages, and pulp & paper industries. Growing chemical industry in the region is anticipated to lead to increased product demand over the forecast period. Increasing refinery capacities and the establishment of new chemical plants in the country are further expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Major players are focusing more on the economies of scope than on the economies of scale as welded spiral heat exchangers can be used for multiple applications across various end-use industries. Therefore, new product developments and extensive marketing activities play a significant role in aiding market players gain a competitive edge.

End Use Insights

Based on end use, welded spiral heat exchangers market has been segmented into chemical, food & beverages, HVAC & refrigeration, petrochemicals, power generation, pulp & paper, and others. Food & beverages end-use segment is likely to be the fastest-growing segment and is expected to ascend at a CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period. Welded spiral heat exchangers offer self-cleaning features owing to their single-channel design. This contributes to handling high viscosity media, especially in the food & beverages and pulp & paper industries.

Global Welded Spiral Heat Exchangers Market

HVAC & refrigeration end-use segment dominated the market in 2018 and held a share of 20.2% in the overall market. These heat exchangers offer high thermal efficiency as compared to shell & tube heat exchangers. Moreover, they have a small footprint and are easy to access during maintenance and cleaning. Such benefits offered by welded spiral type of heat exchangers are expected to drive their demand over the forecast period.

Fertilizers, inorganic chemicals, and basic chemicals are the major products in chemical industry. Chemical reactions often lead to the deposition of undesired material on the surface of heat exchangers, resulting in an opportunity cost involved in the cleaning process. Welded spiral heat exchangers are a solution to this problem. Their single-channel design leads to high shear rates, thus contributing to the self-cleaning effect.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific accounted for 37.6% of the overall market in 2018. It is expected to be the largest regional market and expected to witness a significant growth rate of 5.2% from 2019 to 2025. Surging demand for petrochemical derivatives in various end-use industries such as plastics and packaging is expected to drive the chemical industry, which, in turn, is projected to drive the market in the region over the forecast period.

Europe accounted for 28.4% of the overall market share in 2018. It is expected to be the second-largest regional market over the forecast period owing to the rising construction and automobile industries.Increasing use of welded plate heat exchangers in refineries and chemical industries owing to strict government regulations is expected to drive the market over the forecast period

CSA and the MEA are expected to exhibit a growth rate of 6.3% and 2.9%, respectively, over the forecast period. Increasing requirement for heat recovery applications in chemical, HVAC, and food & beverages sectors is expected to drive the demand for welded spiral heat exchangers over the forecast period.

Welded Spiral Heat Exchangers Market Share Insights
