The global rotary lobe pump market size was USD 0.75 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 0.77 billion in 2022 to USD 1.10 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% in the 2022-2029 period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with rotary lobe pumps experiencing a lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the market exhibited a lower growth of -12.1% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

This pump is a type of positive-displacement pump. The working principle of this pump uses two or more lobes rotating around parallel shafts in the pump’s body to move liquids. Its applications include chemical, food & beverage, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology.  


COVID-19 Pandemic Severely Effects on Demand of Pumps to Hinder Rotary Lobe Pump Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted almost every global industry worldwide, and the pandemic has left a significant long-term impact on the pump industry globally.

The government has imposed lockdown across many countries in the world. The pump industry was forced to close operations due to lockdown. The pandemic severely hit major industries, and as per Fortune, around 94% of Fortune 1,000 manufacturers were impacted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Apart from these, various other end-user industries like paper and pulp, waste management, and others were negatively impacted by the pandemic. The wastewater management industry was kept on a halt, and various projects were delayed due to the global pandemic.

In November 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the deployment of the wastewater treatment facility under construction in Buzzards Bay. The delay in several projects impacted the demand of these pumps.
