About the Report

A vacuum pump is a mechanical device that generates a vacuum into a closed or sealed chamber by drawing out the gas or air molecules from it to the open atmosphere. The most common place where a vacuum pump is used is at home, in vacuum cleaners. Due to the numerous advantages of vacuum pumps, they are deployed for various industrial applications such automotive, aerospace, and industrial manufacturing. However, electronics and semiconductors, packaging, oil and gas, and chemical and petrochemical industries are also emerging industries increasingly using vacuum pumps.

Fact.MR published an exclusive forecast report on the global vacuum pump market for 2020 to 2030. The foremost objective of this report is to pitch insights on the market scenario, demand generators, and technological advancements in this space. The report further proceeds with a market taxonomy, elaborating on the key segments. Also, the report outlines visionary insights on the dynamics of the global market, including the drivers, restraints, opportunities, and trends, and pricing analysis along with key success factors of vacuum pumps. The report also details what impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the demand for vacuum pumps across the world.

What do historical and future outlooks of vacuum pumps signify?

From 2015 to 2019, global demand for vacuum pump expanded at a moderate CAGR of 4.1% in terms of value. Due to numerous benefits such as evaporation, drying, filling, conveying, assembly, material handling, and many more, vacuum pumps have gained fast traction over the past years.

The industrial manufacturing segment will continue to account for the largest market share of more than 10% in terms of value. The electronics & semiconductors industry is the most potential segment for vacuum pumps, expected to progress at a CAGR of over 7% from 2020 to 2030.  

Being an integral part of industries such as industrial manufacturing, electronics and semiconductors, chemical and petrochemicals, packaging, oil and gas, mining, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, and others, steady growth of these sectors has raised demand for vacuum pumps substantially, with the market projected to expand at a healthy CAGR of over 6% through 2030.     

Will requirements rise from semiconductors and healthcare & pharmaceutical industries?

Use of vacuum pumps is essential in the semiconductor industry to establish a highly-controlled environment with the complete absence of dust. Growth of the semiconductor and electronics industry has been prominent with their wide use in solar panels, and 4G and 5G network testing. Thus, this remains a lucrative end-use industry for vacuum pump manufacturers and suppliers.

Further, central vacuum systems that comprise vacuum pumps create suction during surgeries, and saw a surge in demand due to the advent of COVID-19; this indicated the rise of vacuum pump usage in the medical and healthcare industry. During the pandemic, companies such as Gardner Denver Inc., Becker Pumps, KNF Neuberger, and Busch Vacuum facilitated continuous supply of vacuum systems to the worst affected city Wuhan in China.

How is increase in demand from food & beverage industry spurring growth?

According to the Food and Drug Administration, human drugs and biologics must be packaged under stringent regulations of Container Closure Integrity Testing, as sensitive drugs require prevention from air and contamination. Hence, vacuum pumps are deployed for ensuring the aseptic packaging of food items and beverages. The MAP process allows removal of air, particularly oxygen, to create a vacuum to prevent oxidation.

Rise in the demand for packaged food & beverages, along with stringent regulations enforced by governments with respect to food packaging, is drive requirement for vacuum pumps. Rising number of working professionals, especially women, and rapid urbanization, are also key factors leading to the growth of the food & beverage industry, thereby increasing the need for vacuum pumps simultaneously.

What are the key challenges faced by vacuum pump manufacturers?

One of the major challenges faced by vacuum pump manufacturers is the presence of China-based manufacturers that offer vacuum pumps at low. These local manufacturers supply high-quality vacuum pumps that are technically-advanced, but at lower prices. 

The global vacuum pump market is inhibited by the lack of talented professionals, while labor cost is comparatively lower in South East Asian countries. However, absence of skilled individuals helps in the rise of local manufacturers in target markets, depleting the market opportunities for key players.

Food & beverage manufacturers are enforced to perform Container Closure Integrity Testing while packaging with the help of vacuum pumps. Furthermore, they also need to be compliant to ISO 22000, which ensures food safety and quality control of food & beverages during the vacuum packaging. Any manufacturer failing to do so can be subject to both legal and customers’ obligations. 

Furthermore, with the advent of COVID-19, shutdowns and lockdowns imposed across almost all regions limited the procurement of raw materials and led to dearth of manpower. Following stringent social distancing norms resulted in the slowdown of trade activities, disrupted the supply chain, and led to uncertainty in global economies, which restrained the growth of the vacuum pump sector. 

How has COVID-19 impacted the global vacuum pump market?

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the global economy due to imposed lockdowns and complete shutdowns across almost all regions of the world. Manufacturing and supply chain of most industries witnessed a huge slump in the initial phase of the pandemic.

Despite suffering a downfall due to the outbreak of COVID-19, exponential growth of key end-use industries such as industrial manufacturing, electronics and semiconductors, chemicals and petrochemicals, oil and gas, and others helped in the resurrection of the demand for vacuum pumps, with the market projected to witness an increasing CAGR over the forecast period.

What’s exhilarating regenerative vacuum pump propulsion in the long haul?

Upturning of wastewater treatment for the conservation of water brought forth the utilization of vacuum pumps that operated for longer hours without maintenance. Regenerative vacuum pumps serve at high CFM capacities, and provide moderate vacuum conditions suitable for pharmaceutical, pulp & paper, plastic, and printing industries. 

Accretion of packaging industries has necessitated contact-less operations ensuring the safety and hygiene of food & beverages and pills. Regenerative vacuum pumps transmit quiet, point of use application, and are dust-tolerant and highly efficient, which perks up their acclamation in explicit end-use industries.

How evaporation and distillation features caters to the prevalence of vacuum pumps in unequivocal industries?

Chemical & petrochemical industries operate to extract and capture light hydrocarbons that disperse from crude oil, and prevent thermal degradation along with discolouration of the product. This unambiguous application solely requires mediation of vacuum distillation carried out by vacuum pumps.

An upsurge in general manufacturing, chemical & petrochemical, and pharmaceutical facilities soared the efficacy of vacuum pumps for evaporation and distillation functions. Moreover, vacuum distillation lowers operating costs that occur while thermal derogation of solvents, and inhibits hydrocarbon chain breakage. Thus, vacuum pumps illustrate a vital prospect in these specific sectors.
