Sales Analysis of Glycol Pumps (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

Industrial gear pumps are used in a wide range of industry applications, from food processing to asphalt pouring. These industries, in particular the application of industrial-grade compounds, are driving the sales of specialised gear pumps.

Increasing demand for glycol in chemicals & petrochemicals, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, automotive & transportation, and oil & gas is expected to propel the worldwide market for glycol pumping equipment.

A glycol dehydration pump is a vital component of any gas glycol dehydration system, which is used primarily in the oil & gas industry. Fundamentally, it does two things - either moves rich glycol or lean glycol from the contactor to the reboiler and vice versa.

The various types of glycol pumps are glycol chiller pumps, glycol heat pumps, glycol hand pumps, portable glycol pumps, etc. In addition, the favourable chemical compatibility of glycol, which makes it a simple and inexpensive solution, is the driving factor for the use of glycol in numerous industrial applications.

Due to excellent heat retention and flowable viscosity, it is widely used for maintaining the working temperature of an engine or mechanical system in automotive & transportation industries where external conditions may differ. Water glycol pumps are extensively used in industries where plastic, paint, chemical, food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical preparations are processed.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Continuous enhancement in thermal and pressure capabilities, temperature ratings, precision clearances, and easy in-field replacements will lead to increased sales of glycol pumps in numerous industries.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Advanced technological implementations in end-use industries leading to increased production capabilities drive demand for glycol pumps.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): As industries are adopting cutting-edge technologies to accelerate their operations, the pump industry is integrating digital technologies into pumps to fit future needs where accelerated output is required. Improved efficiency of pumps would positively affect the demand for glycol pumps.

During the 2017-2021 historical years, the global glycol pumps market registered a CAGR of 0.1%, and according to the analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 6.1% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

Which Industry Factors are Shaping the Evolution of the Glycol Pumps Market?

“Advancements in Glycol Pumps Aiding Industry Expansion”

Glycol is now being used for several application areas, ranging from mechanical, oil & gas, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, etc. With the rise in its applications, prominent players in the glycol pumps market are incorporating advanced technology in pumps by conducting research and development to produce economic, highly-efficient, and low-maintenance pumps.

For instance, global consumption of natural gas is rising, which is driving the demand for advanced electrical glycol pump systems that can provide less downtime, lower cost, less susceptibility to leakage, and longer duty cycles.

Increased demand from various application sectors has prompted industries to increase their production output, thereby supporting the market growth of glycol pump systems at an expected 6.1% CAGR for the forecast years of 2022-2032.

“Substitute Solutions Hampering Market Progress”

Industries are striving to develop environment-friendly and cost-effective alternate solutions to comply with the constantly changing environmental policies & norms governing the industry sector.

ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), recently issued standards stating that the use of glycerin in engine coolant and antifreeze applications is a much more environmental-friendly and cost-effective alternative to ethylene glycol, which is currently the most widely used component.

Such developments of alternative solutions might challenge glycol pumping systems market growth to some extent.

Due to the sheer high growth of various end-use sectors in China, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and manufacturing, glycol pump sales are expected to increase rapidly in China over the coming years.

Category-wise Insights

Why are Ethylene Glycol Pumps More Widely Used across the World?

The glycol pumps market is segmented into types by ethylene glycol pumps and propylene glycol pumps.

The ethylene type dominates the market with 75.2% of the overall market share in 2022. The segment is projected to rise at the rate of 7% CAGR during the assessment period, owing to factors such as their beneficial chemical properties and toxicity level that are suitable for end-use application industries.

Temperature, flow rate, and pressure are the main factors considered for the pumping of glycol, and ethylene glycol pumps are the most suitable for this.

Which Glycol Pump End Use Brings in Higher Market Revenue?

Under the end-use industry segment, the glycol transfer pumps market is segmented into chemicals & petrochemicals, food & beverages, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, automotive & transportation, oil & gas, plastics, paints & inks, and others.

Amongst them, the oil & gas industry dominates the market as it is estimated to hold 21.1% share in the global glycol pumps market in 2022. Demand for glycol pumps for the oil & gas industry is projected to surge at 7.5% CAGR during the forecast years.

Glycol pumps for gas dehydration systems helps these systems remove water vapor from natural gas and recirculate the liquid. This plays a very important role in this overall process as glycol is highly hygroscopic and has the ability to readily absorb and retain water.

Apart from this, glycol pump kits find usage in the automotive & transportation sector, which holds 18.9% market share and is projected to expand at 6.3% CAGR during the forecast years of 2022-2032. Glycol is used as a brake fluid, hydraulic fluid, heat transfer fluid, and antifreeze agent in several automotive and mechanical systems.
