Market Synopsis

According to the MRFR analysis, Global Hydraulic Power Unit Market Size was valued at USD 12,055.35 Million in 2022. The Hydraulic Power Unit market industry is projected to grow to USD 18.95 billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.82 % during the forecast period (2023 - 2030).

A hydraulic power unit is a self-contained system that includes hydraulic pumps, motors, and reservoirs. Hydraulic power units can generate a lot of power, which can be used to drive any form of hydraulic ram. The Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) provides pressurised oil to the hydraulic actuation system. A redundant pump system charges the bladder accumulator(s) automatically at a high pressure to utilize the ability of the actuators to store energy. A hydraulic system employs enclosed fluid to transfer energy from one source to another, and subsequently create rotary motion, linear motion, or force. The power unit/pack provide the power needed for this transfer of fluid. The global hydraulic power unit market has been negatively impacted, as many industries have been experiencing a decline in demand for hydraulic power units, especially in economies with complete lockdowns. Various projects and production houses had been halted or shifted to the end of 2020 or by early 2021, which led to a decline in the demand for hydraulic power units in the global market. Market growth was effectively curbed along with trade restrictions and supply chain disruptions. However, with the lockdown easing and the normal routine of business, trade, and commerce resuming, demand is projected to grow post-pandemic. While fluctuating raw material and component prices and supply chain constraints might restrict market growth. The hydraulic power unit industry will likely reach a pre-covid level in a couple of years, thanks to increased manufacturing and consumer sales.

  • 750-2000 PSI: The market for 750-2000 PSI held the largest market of worth US$3.64 billion in 2022. The market for 750-2000 PSI is projected to grow at a rate of 5.40% during the forecasted period. The 750-2000 PSI operating pressure rating market is also expected to grow at a significant rate during the same period. Owing to increasing worldwide demand of hydraulic power units of intermediate operating pressure ranges.

  • 2000-3000 PSI: The market for 2000-3000 PSI is projected to grow at a rate of 6.23% during the forecasted period. The 2000-3000 PSI operating pressure rating market is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the same period. This is due to the increasing demand for high-pressure hydraulic systems used in various industrial and commercial applications.

  • Above 3000 PSI: The market for Above 3000 PSI is projected to grow at a rate of 5.93% during the forecasted period. Units with PSIs above 3000 are typically used for heavy industrial processes and construction. Due to which the Above 3000 PSI operating pressure rating market is expected to grow at a good rate during the forecast period following the 2000-3000 PSI operating pressure rating.

Based on Application:

  • Industrial: The market for Industrial applications is projected to grow at a rate of 6.27% during the forecasted period. The Industrial market is expected to grow at a fastest rate during the same period accounting for around 60% of the total market. This expansion might be attributable to the rising need for efficient hydraulic power units in industries such as mining, chemical manufacture, and food processing. Transportation and logistics, oil and gas exploration and production, and manufacturing are the primary industries that are expected to benefit from the use of Hydraulic Power Units.

  • Mobile: The market for Mobile Applications held the largest market worth US$7.11 billion in 2022.
