Pumps are mechanical devices used for the transportation of liquid from one place to another by creating a suitable pressure head. Based on their working operations, pumps are basically classified into two categories namely centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps. Centrifugal pumps are used generally to transport liquid with large volume and substantial pressure head and are largely utilized for water, wastewater, and industrial liquid transportation in the power, steel, agriculture, and domestic sectors. Positive displacement pumps find their applications mainly in the industrial sector where consistency of fluid flow matters more as compared to the volume handled during the transportation. Global sales revenue from pumps deployment is estimated to account for US$ 34.39 Bn by the end of 2016 and is projected to reach a market value of US$ 49.40 Bn by 2024 end, registering a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2016–2024).

Market dynamics

The last decade has witnessed tremendous investment in infrastructure, sanitation, and water and wastewater management in the Middle East and Asian countries such as GCC countries, India, and China to support the growing rate of regional urbanization. The same trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, becoming a prime driver for sustained growth of the global pumps market, expectedly boosting demand for pumps across the globe. Increasing demand for electricity across the world is strengthening the global power sector; with pumps being an integral part of each power plant, development in the power sector is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the global pumps market through 2024. However, low-priced offerings by Chinese pump manufacturers and low replacement rates due to durable life and energy efficient centrifugal pumps are factors that are likely to restrict the growth of the global pumps market over the forecast period.

Rising demand for energy efficient centrifugal pumps and the adoption of micro disc pumping and variable frequency drive technology for centrifugal pumps are some of the key trends observed in the global pumps market. 

Segment analysis

On the basis of product type, the Centrifugal Pumps market is segmented into Single-stage Pump, Multi-stage Pump, Axial & Mixed Flow Pump, Submersible Pump, and Sealless & Circular Pump. On the basis of product type, the Positive Displacement Pumps market is segmented into Reciprocating Pump and Rotary Pump. On capacity basis (HP), each pump segment type is further sub-segmented into Small Pump, Medium Pump, and High Pump. On the basis of application, the Centrifugal Pumps market is segmented into Agriculture & Irrigation, Domestic, Mining, Oil & Gas, Other Industrial, Wastewater Treatment (Effluent Treatment Plant, Sewage Treatment Plant), and Water Treatment (Industrial Process, Municipal & Commercial Facilities). On the basis of application, the Positive Displacement Pumps market is segmented into Chemical, Oil & Gas, Power, Pulp & Paper, Water & Wastewater Treatment, and Others.

The Centrifugal Pumps segment is estimated to account for the largest market value share of 90.9% by the end of 2016 while the Positive Displacement Pumps segment is expected to account for around 8.8% share in terms of revenue by 2024 end. The Water Treatment application segment is expected to dominate the Centrifugal Pumps market with 23% share in terms of revenue and is expected to maintain its dominance through the forecast period. The Oil & Gas application segment is expected to dominate the Positive Displacement Pumps market with 23.6% revenue share by the end of 2016 and is expected to maintain its dominance through 2024.
