The global submersible pumps market size was valued at USD 12.95 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 29.85 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.21% during the forecast period of 2019-2032.

The market growth is propelled by the increasing development of submersible pumps in residential and commercial sectors. Growing concerns over wastewater discharges and reuse of discharged water is acting as key features fostering the pumps demand. In May 2019, the Italian manufacturer, Caprari, announced to increase the operational performance of its submersible motor’s portfolio called MAC series. The improvement is achieved by using High Thrust (HT) bearings in the units to increase axial load resistance and durability of the products.


Increasing Demand for Hydrocarbon Products Observed as a Substantial Submersible Pump Market Trend

Submersible pump are extensively used in oil & gas production from the wells. ESPs are readily installed in the drill string as the borewell submersible pumps to produce centrifugal force and efficiently lift substantial volumes of liquids to the surface. A large number of wells are on the verge of maturity and requires an additional method to produce oil & gas. In February 2020, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projected that the global petroleum and liquid fuel demand is set to increase by over 1.3 billion million barrels per day (BPD) in 2020, resulting in 101.97 BPD by the year-end.

Rising Measures to Treat and Reuse Discharged Wastewater Will Propel the Industry Size

Water is the basic necessity needed by every individual to sustain, and depletion & contamination of water resources have risen grave concerns among nations. Consequently, different regional governments have implemented stern policies and guidelines to curb the mixture of released wastewaters into mainstream water reserves. For instance, in May 2018, the government of Gujrat, a state in India, had introduced a policy named Reuse of Treated Waste Water Policy. The framework is aimed to reduce the reliance on the regional freshwater sources like rivers and support the setup of Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) in the state.


Complexity in Maintaining the Operational Conditions and High Cost Associated with Repairs May Hinder Market Growth

Submersible pumps are manufactured by hermetically sealing a motor with the body of the pumps to keep external liquid out of the system. Thus, corrosion or loosening of the seal over time may lead to outer water or liquid to seep in the system and dangerously harm the pumps. This leads to a pump failure condition requiring the inevitable repairing of highly expensive motors and other internal parts.


By Capacity Analysis

Medium Capacity Submersible Pump Are Anticipated to Lead the Market During the Forecast Timeframe

Based on the capacity, the market is trifurcated into low, medium, and high. The medium capacity segment is projected to account for the major share in the market. The products deliver optimum output discharge volume along with better applicability to various commercial, agricultural, firefighting, irrigation, and other sectors. High capacity products are further set to witness considerable growth majorly due to expanding oil & gas, mining, and chemical sectors. Increasing construction of residential establishments along with public pools & aquariums will positively driver the low capacity segment outlook.

By Pump Type Analysis

Electric Submersible Pump Is Likely to Dominate the Industry Size

By pump type, this market can be majorly segmented into electric submersible pumps, grinder pumps, effluent pumps, bilge pumps, and others. Electric submersible pumps or ESPs are projected to shape the market trends and hold the lion’s share during the forecast period. A rising number of low producing oil & gas wells coupled with rising energy demand across the globe will boost product adoption. Rapidly increasing seaborne trades coupled with the construction of new marine vessels like ships, boats, yachts, and others will add to the bilge pumps' progress.

Grinder pumps are also anticipated to observe substantial growth owing to rising focus to handle wastewater and sewage systems efficiently. The products are increasingly installed in private and public establishments for the treatment of fibers and solids discharge with significant pressure to the sewer system. Furthermore, effluent pumps are also a type of sump pump progressively used for pumping sewage expulsions with solids having moderately sized solid particles flowing from the septic tanks. Additionally, other pumps include various products like submersible utility pumps, bladder pumps, line shaft turbine or lineshaft vertical turbine submersible pumps, and many more.
