Industrial Air Preheater Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Regenerative Air Preheaters, Recuperative Air Preheaters), By End-user (Chemical Industry, Pharmaceutical Industry, Thermal Power Plant, Steel Industry, Cement Industry, Others) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI104728 | Status : Ongoing



Air preheater is a device operated in industrial applications. It is utilized to heat air in order to increase thermal proficiency of the boiler processes. It is primarily installed between the economizer and flue gas stack (Chimney). The purpose of air preheater is mainly to recover heat which increases the thermal proficiency of the boiler by reducing heat lost in flue gas. On the basis of type, recuparative air preheater is a gas-to-gas heat exchanger whereas regenerative air preheater includes two or more isolated heat storage sections, each referred as a regenerator. Regenerative industrial air preheater is utilized to mend heat from flue gas and condense unnecessary heat loss through flue gas.

The market is fragmented with the presence of international and regional players operating across the globe. Leading players have shifted towards mergers and acquisitions with other players to penetrate product into the market. Moreover, these players are extensively upgrading their product portfolio to ensure adherence to low intensity harmful gas emissions, thus contributing towards minimizing the global warming effects. Furthermore, utilization of ‘Industry 4.0’ is providing opportunities in manufacturing technologies such as, industrial internet of things (IIOT) and others.

The technology of cooling and heating the required operating systems is the basic area where a large number of companies across industrial verticals are advancing their business model. This in turn, is foreseen to witness excessive growth of industrial air preheater market globally over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted the selling and installation of air preheaters across industries including, chemical, thermal power plant, cement and others. The sudden lockdown imposed by governmental bodies has resulted in underutilised air preheaters, thus increasing the maintenance cost. As a result, a substantial stoppage in industrial application in the first half of 2020 has been observed as it resounds through every industry vertical. However, on a long term basis, the effect of COVID-19 on demand and supply chain process is expected to define the market growth in the future ahead.
