"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
The global dosing pump market size was valued at USD 5.28 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 5.58 billion in 2023 to USD 8.69 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period.
Dosing pumps are the types of positive displacement pump used in industrial plants, manufacturing facilities, water treatment facilities, food processing facilities, and other industry verticals.
The demand for dosing pumps is primarily driven by strict regulations in water & wastewater management, the growth of the manufacturing industry, increase in oil & gas capacities, and healthy growth in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries, mostly in developing countries.
Supply Chain Disruptions and Economic Slow Down Amid Pandemic Hampered the Market Growth
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the economic growth of various countries around the globe. Various countries have taken several major steps to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus. A few of the measures include partial or complete lockdown, travel restrictions, the closure of commercial and industrial spaces, and shortage of workers, among many others. This measure has led to distancing and shortage of workforce, impacting the supplier's ability to manufacture and deliver goods on time, which has left the manufacturers unable to fulfill their obligations toward customers on time.
Moreover, various industry verticals that use dosing pumps for several operations were suspended, resulting in a massive gap between supply and demand. Subsequently, the supply chain disruptions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic have also increased inflation and led to volatility in raw materials and energy, resulting in the failure of several projects and manufacturers' ability to secure new contracts, thus leading to a decline in revenues.

Adoption of Digital Technologies to Deliver Accurate Metering Stimulated Market Opportunities
Dosing pumps are mainly used for various chemical treatments in the primary and secondary processes such as disinfection, coagulation, flocculation, and others. The chemicals industry is undergoing a digital adoption wherein many market players have started significantly investing in their digital and analytics capabilities to increase their resilience in the pumps industry. Key companies providing chemical application components also enhance their product capabilities with digitalization.
For instance, Grundfos, a leading diaphragm dosing pump for water & chemical applications, provides a digital dosing pump coupled with the iSOLUTIONS offering, which results in the delivery of accurate metering, proven reliability, ease of installation & calibration. In addition, the innovative digital dosing technologies (DDA, DDC, and DDE) have heralded new intelligent chemical dosing by offering intelligent flow control, improving cost efficiencies while continuing to support high precision processes.
Durability and Low Cost of Pumps Result in the Dosing Pump Market Growth
Dosing pumps can provide precise & accurate dosing of fluids, which is essential in industries, such as chemical processing, water treatment, and pharmaceuticals, and can be integrated into an existing system. Moreover, implementing control systems in a pump helps regulate the flow of rates & measurement of undesirable elements in multiple industries, such as wastewater facilities, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages. The automatic regulation of flow treatment helps improve accuracy and minimize cost. Thus, reducing cost and ensuring optimal resource usage are driving the market growth.
Increasing Fluid Process Demand from Multiple Industries & Product Enhancement Favor the Market Growth
Across industries, the process sector, with its wide use of fluid-hydraulic equipment and high energy consumption, has enormous potential for the application of these pumps. As smart fluids for hydraulics become more commercially viable, first movers among end-users and equipment OEMs can take advantage of their advantageous positions to move ahead of the competition, resulting in enhanced product offerings.
For instance, traditional wastewater & chemical treatment plants were processed manually based on the flow rate observations & measurements, which can cause under or over-dosing of chemicals. However, with innovative technology, such as pump-intelligent Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) & wastewater treatment, chemical facilities can improve chemical dosing accuracy in their treatment processes.
Moreover, technological advancements have made it possible to monitor and control pumps remotely through a desktop or smartphone, making it easy to adjust dosing rates and troubleshoot issues. Thereby, the increase in product capability and rise in demand from the process sector will aid the market growth in the coming years.
Complexity of Dosing Pump to Hinder Market Growth
The dosing pump requirements in various industries vary according to their application and needs. Even some pumps may be complex for operations, making them difficult for some industry verticals. For context, the pressure at discharge and flow rate are generally adjusted according to the requirement. This results in the design & performance of the pump regarding the end-user industry. Hence, to cater to the end-use industry requirement, pump manufacturers provide tailor-made products, making it difficult for the manufacturer to produce the product at an economic scale. Moreover, several major players operating in the global market generally offer a regional, domestic level with a small-scale production unit. They cannot provide customized products on a large scale.
Peristaltic Pump Segment Holds a Dominant Market Share due to its Flexibility and Acceptance in Critical Applications
Based on type, the market is divided into diaphragm pump, peristaltic pump, solenoid pump, plunger pump, hydraulic pump, and others.
Peristaltic pump segment dominates the global market due to their reliability in handling delicate and viscous fluids without causing damage or shear. Additionally, their ability to handle a wide range of flow rates and easily adjust to accommodate changes in the process will likely result in the dominance of this market during the forecast period.
Furthermore, diaphragm pump is one of the fastest-growing types of pumps and is likely to experience significant demand in the coming years. Factors such as their ability to withstand high-pressure applications, to be used for metering & dosing, and their relatively low maintenance & long lifespan will likely result in their adoption.
Followed by the diaphragm pump segment, the solenoid pump and plunger pump segments hold a substantial share in the global market owing to their self-priming capability, high capability of flow rate, reliability, and low power consumption. Other pumps generally include air-operated and high-pressure motor pumps, which also experience significant demand.
Pumps with Flow Rates of Upto 50 (L/min) will Dominate the Market Due to Widespread Adoption in Growing Industries
Based on flow rate, the market is trifurcated into upto 50 (L/min), 51 to 100 (L/min), and more than 100 (L/min).
Pumps with upto 50 L/min capacity are widely used in water & wastewater and chemical industries. With the growing water management activity to provide more clean water in developing economies, up to 50 L/min flow rate pumps will likely dominate the dosing pump market share during the forecast period.
Furthermore, diaphragm pumps with 51 to 100 L/min flow rates are primarily offered with electric and pneumatic drive controls. They are widely used in fluid-handling of metallic, non-metallic, and conductive materials. Based on this factor, the 51 to 100 L/min flow rate pumps are experiencing significant demand.
