Hydrodynamic Couplings Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2016 - 2026

  • To Be Published : Dec-2016 |
  • Status : Work in progress |
  • Format :

Hydrodynamic couplings are fluid coupling devices used in power transfer of mechanical devices involved in heavy industrial machinery, mining & automotive equipment. Various types of mechanical device are conveyor systems, centrifuges, mixers, crushers, shredders, bucket wheel excavators, shaft generators, and drum drives etc. The device has experienced intense consumption by replacing the mechanical clutch systems which were subjected to abrasions. Other pivotal reason for the rapid emergence of hydrodynamic couplings market is that they can operate at variable speeds, have controlled start-up without experiencing shocks & vibrations during power transmission load intervals. The product also employs low input & maintenance costs. Revenue generated from sales of hydrodynamic coupling market is expected to increase at a moderate pace over the forecast period.

Hydrodynamic Couplings Market Segmentation

The Hydrodynamic couplings can be segmented on the basis on product type

  • Turbo coupling
  • Flow coupling
  • Fluid coupling

The product can also be classified based on operating types:

  • Constant Speed Fluid Couplings- used for low power starts, overload protection & gentle acceleration
  • Drain Type- similar to previous type with a clutch like provision added
  • Variable Speed Fluid Couplings- used for adjustable power start-ups & variable acceleration

A product differentiation can be done on the basis of design principle as well

  • Control Principle – which is primarily of two types single system low accuracy (TP), high control accuracy (TPK)
  • Flow Circuits Configuration- which is of two types Single Circuit Coupling & Double Circuit Coupling
  • Operating Medium- either Water or Mineral Oil
  • Operating Supply of Fluid- via External, Separate with Cooler, Integrated in-housing with cooler

The global hydrodynamic couplings market can also be segmented on the basis of end use application as 

  • Automobile
  • Mining
  • Industrial
  • Chemicals
  • Defence
  • Rail & Marine Systems
  • Others

Hydrodynamic Couplings Market Dynamics & Trends

As stated, the product finds its consumer base in heavy industries segment & those industries which require high running torque machines, crushing, milling & excavating operations. Apart from standard prototypes, the OEMs are providing customized solutions to address the specific needs of customer as well. Technological & product developments to achieve cost effective operations and environment protection are being considered by the manufacturing companies. Various mergers & acquisitions have taken place between global & regional players or strategic alliances between large scale manufacturers and small business unit specialized in particular component/operation over the past few years. The value chain starts from the raw materials supplier to OEMs to distributors and suppliers to end customer completing the chain. Sometimes for customized requirements, the role of project management & design consultants comes into the act as well.

Hydrodynamic Couplings Market: Regional Outlook & Drivers

Geographically, the hydrodynamic couplings market is primarily based in Western Europe, North America & Asia Pacific regions.
