Global Infrastructure Development to Offer Lucrative Opportunities for Growth

Global demand for water pumps is directly correlated to infrastructure development activities. Governments of developing countries such as China and India are focusing on urbanization, which, in turn, is anticipated to fuel demand for water pumps, particularly in domestic, irrigation, and water & wastewater treatment applications. Rising demand for solar-based water pumps, especially in agriculture and irrigation activities, is also driving the growth of the global water pumps market.

Water scarcity is a major issue plaguing numerous regions across the globe. Governments of various countries are implementing regulations mandating the recycling and reusing of water, especially in industries. This is expected to drive demand for water pumps in the near future.

For instance, 'The Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthaan Mahabhiyan (KUSUM)' is the latest scheme introduced by the Government of India, with supportive assistance for production, distribution, and promotion worth of US$ 480 billion. KUSUM aims to encourage farmers to use solar power for meeting their irrigation requirements through solarisation of existing pumps.

Replacement of Existing Plants and Pumping Systems

The replacement of aged pumps and pumping systems in agricultural applications is expected to drive sales of new water pumps that are highly efficient. Replacement of diesel pumps with electric pumps is another important factor that will positively impact the water pumps market. Regional suppliers and manufacturers operating in the aftermarket for water pumps, in particular, are focusing on capitalizing on this ongoing trend.

For instance, Grundfos launched renewed and expanded ranges of SE and SL wastewater pumps with unmatched performance of S-tube impeller. These are designed to handle sewage, effluent, large volumes of surface water, and process water in municipal, utility, and industrial applications.
