Demand Analysis of Submersible Pumps 2016-2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

As per Fact.MR – a market research and competitive intelligence provider, during the historic period of 2016 to 2020, the market expanded a CAGR of 3%, reaching US$ 9 Bn by the end of the aforementioned timeframe. Analysis concludes that increased spending on wastewater management by governments as well as burgeoning farm mechanization in developing countries are key growth engines for submersible pumps.

Prospects dipped considerably during the COVID-19 pandemic, given massive contractions in the demand-supply dynamics across the oil & gas sector. Global oil demand fell by 16.4 million barrels per day year-on-year in Q2 2020, as lockdowns were imposed to curb further spread of the infection. Consequently, exploration activities came to a grinding halt.

However, as vaccination drives gathered momentum, the global industry exhibited signs of recovery, with exploration and drilling operations resuming across major countries. Considering the aforementioned factors, the market for submersible pumps is projected to touch US$ 14.5 Bn by the end of the forecast period (2021-2031).

Elevated Water Stress Levels Providing Impetus to Submersible Pumps Sales?

By 2030, demand for water will exceed supply to the tune of 40%, prompting governments to spend US$ 200 billion per annum on upstream water supply, according to a report published by the International Resource Panel in 2016. In order to stave off the looming crisis, it is essential to decouple water use from economic growth.

As per the UN Environment Program, the agricultural sector accounts for 70% of all global freshwater withdrawals. As the population increases, agriculture will exert growing pressure on water resources. Although governments have invested heavily in constructing dams, canal, pipeline and aqueducts, they are inefficient in replenishing water tables, nor are they sustainable.

Based on these aforementioned trends, key end use industries are investing significantly in procuring efficient submersible pumps. For instance, KSB Group offers highly efficient non-clogging impellers and large free passages enabled wastewater pumps, enabling efficient fluid handling and offering energy-saving drives. Likewise, Sulzer offers the AHLSTARTM A Range wastewater and sludge pumps, loop pumping and fresh water pumping solutions respectively.
