Why are Vacuum Pumps Manufacturers Thriving in the U.S.?

“High Demand from Medical & Pharmaceutical Industry”

Vacuum pumps remove gas from sealed articles creating a partial vacuum. This leads to their application in several areas such as electric lamps, production of vacuum tubes, cathode ray tubes, print presses, electron microscopy, etc.

The advantages of vacuum pumps have made them popular in pharmaceutical and medical industries for numerous applications such as radiotherapy, radiosurgery, radiopharmacy, etc.

Key manufacturers are offering vacuum pumps for sterilization processes that require high pumping performance, thereby minimizing cycle time and maximizing output. Furthermore, vacuum pumps are being used in the pharmaceutical industry for packaging and container closure in accordance with strict regulations by the government.

Companies are coming up with vacuum pumps that not only provide an excellent barrier to drugs, preventing them from biological contamination but also increase their shelf life.

As such, demand for vacuum pumps from the pharmaceutical and medical industry is likely to fuel vacuum pump market growth in the United States over the coming years.

“Rising R&D Expenditure and Facility Up-gradation”

Prominent vacuum pump suppliers are launching new products that are incorporated with advanced features, fulfilling the needs and demands of varied end users. Companies are investing in research and development to stay ahead of the competition faced in the market. They are also working closely with customers to launch products that enhance customer uptime and productivity.

Research and development along with technology up-gradation call for huge investments. Companies are looking for the up-gradation of their manufacturing and training facilities and for the modernization of their production facilities to launch new product lines consisting of intelligent, high-performance root pumps for low and medium vacuum applications.

Thus, facility up-gradation and investments in research and development are aiding market growth in the United States.

Which U.S. Regions Account for Higher Demand for Vacuum Pumps?

The West U.S. vacuum pump market and South-East U.S. vacuum pump market hold 28.1% and 23.2% share, respectively, of the overall market. Both these regional markets are projected to expand 7.1% and 6.7% CAGRs during the forecast years.

High growth is attributed to factors such as escalating demand from the packaging industry, which makes an extensive use of vacuum pumps in processes such as bleaching, blending, bag holding, cheese processing, etc. Companies are constantly evolving their vacuum pump systems in accordance with food and beverages in terms of reducing oxygen content from food products.

Furthermore, augmented investments in end-user industries such as power generation, chemicals, and oil & gas are positively impacting the market due to increasing natural gas production. Along with this, the boom of shale gas and stabilized oil prices are driving the usage of vacuum pumps in the regional market.

Category-wise Insights

Why are Wet Vacuum Pumps Hugely Popular in the U.S.?

Under lubrication type, the vacuum pump market is segmented into dry vacuum pumps and wet vacuum pumps. Wet vacuum pumps dominate the market with 76.9% share.

The wet vacuum pumps segment is projected to rise at 5.8% CAGR on the back of wet vacuum pumps being completely reliable with easy maintenance, easy processing, compact design, and high functional structure. All these factors result in stable, reliable, and uniform results, thereby witnessing enhanced traction from several application areas.

Dry vacuum pumps account for 23.1% market share and are projected to register 5.3% CAGR, as these pumps also offer the advantage of minimizing contamination from oil and other chemistries. These pumps aid in keeping product purity intact and require less maintenance.

Will Positive Displacement Vacuum Pumps Maintain Their Market Dominance?

Under pump type, the vacuum pump market is segmented into positive displacement, dry vacuum pumps, centrifugal pumps, momentum transfer, and regenerative.

Amongst them, positive displacement vacuum pumps dominate the market by holding 23.9% share and are projected to expand at 5.7% CAGR during the forecast years. Positive displacement pumps can produce a consistent flow rate when there are changes in pressure.

In addition, as the viscosity of a positive displacement pump increases, the flow rate increases as well. They also create a medium to high pressure and provide an excellent way to pump viscous fluids and other pump oils, leading to higher growth of this segment.
