Sales Analysis of Hydrocyclones (2017-2021) Vs. Market Projections (2022-2032)

The separation systems that are used in several industries require the utilization of adequate equipment for every end-use purpose. All types of chemicals or materials that are supposed to be separated cannot be done so properly using old conventional techniques. Thus, depending on the different states, sizes, densities, and volumes of the particles or materials, separating devices are used.

A hydrocyclone is one such pivotal device that is used for the efficient separation of solids and liquids. These separators were first used in a simple and compact form. But now, new technologies have been introduced that have enriched the efficiency of hydrocyclones by allowing them to separate very fine particles.

Hydrocyclones have many applications in desliming, degritting, concentration, recovery of solids, clarification, open-circuit classification, closed-circuit grinding, and others. The market for hydrocyclones is predicted to achieve higher sales due to the robustness in improved sustainability and lesser replacement needs.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Growing demand from mining and construction industries will have a positive impact on hydrocyclones market growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): China & Russia are projected to witness comparatively higher demand for hydrocyclones due to increased penetration in the construction and oil & gas industries.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Emergence of advanced technologies such as sensors and customization of these devices will open new doors for hydrocyclone manufacturers.

From 2017 to 2021, the global market for hydrocyclones registered a CAGR of -2.3%. Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, reveals that the market will exhibit growth at 6.7% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

Which Factors are Driving High Demand for Hydrocyclones across Regions?

“Emergence as Efficient Equipment for Separation Process”

Hydrocyclones are mechanical separation systems that sort particles existing in a liquid solution. They use very less centrifugal force as compared to other devices. The primary advantage of a hydrocyclone over other techniques is that it has no moving parts. Therefore, it features a straightforward structure that is simple to use and maintain. It also offers high resistance to erosion, high efficiency, and the ability to process large volumes. As the device is compact, it can work in different environments.

As the need for fine products grows, the demand for hydrocyclones also increases. Other features of this device such as fine separation size, high classification efficiency, and strong workability are expected to drive the growth of the market over the coming years.

“Utilization of Technology for Customization Will Provide Sustainable Growth Opportunities”

Hydrocyclones are used in a variety of industries, including mining, construction, agriculture, and pharmaceuticals for different purposes such as degritting, closed-circuit grinding, concentration, clarity, solids recovery, open-circuit classification, and many others.

A customized separation solution for most applications can be created by combining the most appropriate hydrocyclone geometry with appropriate fabrication materials that can best suit the characteristics of the process fluid and suspended solids. Manufacturers are now trying to introduce many new features into hydrocyclones and provide them at affordable prices. Hydrocyclone sales have been driven mostly by customization depending on the application in the specific end-use industry.

These smart cyclone conditional monitoring and all-encompassing process optimization systems are ideal for closed-circuit grinding optimization. Reduced production interruptions and increased recovery rates can be achieved by combining process sensors with modern control software. Hydrocyclones with higher robustness account for higher sales in the market due to lower replacement needs and higher sustainability.

What Can Adversely Affect the Stance of Hydrocyclone Manufacturers?

“Penetration of Screening Technology to Restrict Hydrocyclone Demand Growth”

Hydrocyclones are simple devices that do not use any moving parts. However, due to the continuous separation process, the components of hydrocyclones need maintenance.

There are many other separation techniques such as screening that have started gaining importance due to their increased efficiency. Initially, this system was used for large particles and dealt with fine particles. Fine screen technology is penetrating even for different smaller size ranges, replacing hydrocyclones. In recent years, advances in high-frequency screening technology have increased the use of screens to close wet grinding circuits, improving the separation efficiency of tiny particles in a compact arrangement.

Manufacturers have little scope to increase the standards of hydrocyclones by integrating with IoT and creating automation techniques for the control of roping and other processes involved. This is expected to impact the market adversely to some extent.

Country-wise Insights

Will the Growing Mining Industry in Russia Drive Hydrocyclone Demand?

Mining is a vital industry in Russia. It is one of the leading producers of diamonds, coal, iron ore, nickel, aluminum, gold, palladium, uranium, and platinum. Russia accounted for around 14% of the global mineral production in 2021.

Russia has enormous coal reserves. Some of the coal reserves are located at Pechora, Irkutsk, Kuznetsk, Moscow, and other areas. It accounted for 17.9% of global coal exports in 2021. Russia is the third-largest exporter and sixth-largest producer of coal.

Russia also has its footprints in the oil & gas industry. Some of the biggest Russian oil companies are Rosneft, Surgutneftegaz, Gazprom Neft, and Lukoil. Owing to the increasing penetration of Russia in mining and oil & gas industries, there will be certain growth in the market for hydrocyclones. Russia's hydrocyclones market is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 29.9 million in 2022.

Why is the China Hydrocyclones Market Highly Lucrative?

China is among the top gold producers, getting all its gold deposits from the Jiaojia Gold Mine, Sanshandao Gold Mine, and others. This country also has large deposits of copper, which are obtained from the Shaxi Copper Mine situated in Anhui.

As China is a leading producer of steel, aluminum, coal, tungsten, rare earth, lead, zinc, and other metallic minerals, the usage of hydrocyclones is unavoidable. China also has its footprints in the construction and agriculture industries. Therefore, the sales of hydrocyclones in China are estimated to account for a market share of 9.8% in 2022

Category-wise Insights

How is the Construction Sector Driving the Market for Hydrocyclones?

The surging construction industry will affect the sales of hydrocyclones positively. Hydrocyclones are extensively used in the construction sector for the proper separation of solid-liquid, slurry, and others.

The U.S. has initiated many construction projects. Some of the major construction projects in the U.S. are Steel Mini Mill, which is worth around US$ 3 billion, Osceola Steel Plant, the Atlas Power Data Center worth US$ 1.9 billion, and others.

Construction is becoming a major industry in many developed and developing countries. Owing to the increase in construction projects, the hydrocyclones market will expand in tandem over the coming years.
