Growing Integration of Innovative Technologies to Efficiently Operate the Product

Centrifugal pumps are prone to pump different fluids containing several types of impurities that may hamper the productivity of the system. Consequently, maintaining the operating conditions of the pumps plays a crucial role in increasing the overall efficiency and life of products. Various industry participants have successfully demonstrated advanced technologies like network-based monitoring, Internet of Things (IoT), and many others to detect and diagnose fault conditions remotely. In 2018, KSB presented its new platform known as “KSB guard” to monitor pump systems using network sensors at the global trade fair, ACHEMA, held in Germany. The novel breakthrough aims to add temperature and vibration sensors to the pumps for the early detection of changes in operating behavior for better retrofitting and maintenance.

Stern Government Norms To Treat Wastewater Is Likely To Play a Key Role In Industry Landscape

Different regional governments and organizations have implemented stringent regulations to process the impure releases from different sectors to prevent the contamination of clean water bodies. Wastewater treatment helps in handling the liquid discharges from various sources and allows the processed liquid to get dispersed in multiple locations. Centrifugal pump units are readily deployed in effluent treatment plants owing to its easy pumping low viscous liquids in excessive flow rates.


Extensive Application Across Wide Range of Industries Is Likely to Boost the Industry Size

Continuous need to boost pressure and supply water to conduct various operations has propelled the installation of centrifugal units in different verticals like food & beverage, marine, metal manufacturing, chemicals, and many others. However, several factors, including viscosity, temperature, specific gravity, pressure, density, and vapor pressure of the working fluid, govern the applicability of these products in different capacities and sizes.

Increasing Construction Activities of Residential and Commercial Spaces Will Augment the Market Growth

The building of new residential and commercial structures has witnessed a substantial increase over the years. Various public and private entities are significantly investing among different developing as well as developed nations to refurbish existing establishments and constructing new ones. These pumps help in dealing with variable or low-pressure problems and also helps to deliver energy-efficient solutions to water transfer and HVAC needs in the buildings.


Regular Priming Requirements Along with Formation of Cavitation Conditions May Obstruct the Market Growth

A Centrifugal pump operates by rotating the impellers instead of imparting suction power to pump liquid in and out of the systems. Priming is the operation done to ensure the system is completely submerged in liquid to minimize the air intake that generates weak pull and causes major problems. Furthermore, cavitation caused by the vaporization of water inside the pumps due to the high speed of the systems. The implosion and high rotation rate of these bubbles are one of the significant reasons for corrosion in pump casing and impellers.


By Type Analysis

Radial Flow Type of Centrifugal Pumps is Set to Lead Market

Based on type, the market is trifurcated into axial flow, radial flow, and mixed flow. The radial flow segment is likely to account for the largest centrifugal pump market share. These units pump the working fluid in a perpendicular direction to the pump shaft, and the fluid radially exits the impellers. This orientation of the pumps provides various technical advantages, including high efficiency, low maintenance, compact design, low bearing load, and many others. The ability to effectively pump incompressible fluids with low pump head and bulk flow volume is anticipated to foster the adoption of the axial flow type segment. In axial systems, the fluid is processed parallel to the shaft, and the units are widely installed for drainage, sewage, and irrigation purposes, among others. Subsequently, mixed flow type units have amalgamated characteristics of the other systems and can discharge the liquid in axial and radial directions. The systems are largely used for agricultural, irrigation, sewage, and various industrial applications.

By Stage Analysis

Multi-Stage Centrifugal Pumps Are Likely to Hold the Dominating Share During the Forecast Period

By stage, the market is divided into single-stage and multi-stage. Multi-stage centrifugal pump market is projected to possess significant share owing to their high energy-efficiency, easy installation, low internal friction losses, optimized operation & control, and different other characteristics. Furthermore, the single-stage segment is anticipated to observe substantial growth over the forecast timeframe due to their high working performance in installations requiring low pressure and high flow rate.

By End-user Analysis

Increasing Setup of Wastewater Treatment Plants Will Aid the Expansion of Industrial Segment In the Market

By end-user, the market is segmented into residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural. Indispensable need to transfer liquids in large volumes from one operation to next has positively propelled the installation of these pumps in various industrial plants. The industrial segment includes oil & gas, water & wastewater, chemicals, power generation, food & beverage, mining, and many others to pump slurry, oil, liquid, and other chemicals to streamline the process. Agricultural End-user segment is projected to observe considerable growth owing to their broad working range, flexibility, cost-effective operations for small farmers, and easy operations for surface pumping in heavy volumes. Furthermore, the commercial sector will also hold significant share during the forecast period due to their large deployment in public establishments like swimming pools, firefighting stations, sprinklers & fountains, drainage systems, and several others to continuously maintain domestic heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), sewage, irrigation, drainage, garden, water supply, and many others.
