Pump Market Growth & Trends

The global pumps market size is expected to reach USD 125.95 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2020 to 2027. Rising demand for pumps across various end-use industries, such as oil & gas, construction, chemical, and water & wastewater, is anticipated to augment growth.

The demand for pumps is driven by heavy investments in modernizing irrigation systems in developing countries, such as India, Brazil, Thailand, and South Africa. In addition, the development of pump systems and other agricultural machinery with sensors, for the adoption of smart farming practices, for real-time monitoring of crop development is expected to drive market growth.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released new energy conservation standards for pumps in June 2016, related to the governing of the energy efficiency of pumps, resulting in the replacement of old pumps with new ones as per standards. This is leading to various technological innovations for making energy-efficient pumps, thereby complementing market growth.

The global pumps market is highly competitive and relies on technological developments and product improvements. The manufacturers are focused on attaining application development to gain a competitive advantage. The local players in the Asia Pacific pose a significant threat to multinational companies with respect to pricing and product quality.
