Fluidized Bed Reactors: Market Outlook
Fluidized bed reactors are type of vessels that are used for carrying out different types of single and multiphase chemical reactions across different industries. Fluidized bed reactors are used for processes such as catalytic cracking, pyrolysis, combustion, dehydration, polymerization and gasification, among others. Due to these varied applications, fluidized bed reactors are used in industries ranging from chemicals to plastics where the manufacturing of end products require breaking down of heavier compounds into smaller and lighter compounds. In fluidized bed reactors, a gaseous or liquid fluid is flown through a catalyst, which is at times shaped as a number of spheres, at a very high velocity making the solid to behave as a fluid. Because of this fluidization process, fluidized bed reactors have found a number of industrial applications. Fluidized bed reactors can handle large volumes of process fluids and hence form a vital part in applications like catalytic cracking of naphtha and petroleum to produce lighter hydrocarbons which are commercially used to produce various other products. Due to all of its industry wide spanning applications, fluidized bed reactors market is anticipated to witness a substantial growth in the coming years.
Fluidized Bed Reactors: Market Dynamics and Regional Outlook
Since the invention of the first fluidized bed reactor (gas generator) in the 1920s, the fluidized bed reactors have found their way into a number of industries which are involved in the manufacturing of a number of essential, day-to-day products like chemicals, plastics, rubber, water and waste water treatment and various other polymers. Fluidized bed reactors are also used in nuclear power plant and coal gasification applications, making it one of the essential linking chain in the power industry as well. Given their wide range of applications varying from petroleum industry to nuclear, fluidized bed reactors market is expected to continue to have a high volume demand in the coming years.
Fluidized bed reactors have a few advantages on their counterparts, packed beds. Fluidized bed reactors facilitate uniform particle mixing due to the fluid-like behavior exhibited the solid particles in the reactor. Fluidized bed reactors also have a high temperature coefficient. Fluidized bed reactors have the ability for maintaining uniform temperature during chemical reactions making them the optimal solution for various exothermic reactions. Chemical reactions often require addition or reduction of heat for an effective product output. Hot or cold spots are a recurring problem in packed beds, which reduces the overall product quality. As fluidized bed reactors can control temperature distribution, they are most preferred in various chemical reactions. These factors are expected to drive the growth of fluidized bed reactors in end use industries.
Fluidized bed reactors require high pumping power to maintain the fluid velocity in the reactor beds. Given the large size of the vessels, high pumping power is required to counter pressure drops during reactions. This significantly increases the cost of operation of fluidized bed reactors as compared to packed beds. This is expected to restrain the growth of fluidized bed reactors market in some key industries. But given the superior operation efficiency of fluidized bed reactors when compared to packed beds, the overall fluidized bed reactors market is anticipated to register robust growth over the forecast period.
Due to the rapid industrialization and growth of chemical and manufacturing industries in China and India, the South Asia and East Asia markets are expected to register significant growth in the fluidized bed reactors market. Europe and North America are expected to hold lion’s share in the fluidized bed reactors market, while Middle East & Africa is expected to produce significant opportunities to the fluidized bed reactors manufacturers over the forecast period.
