Diaphragm Pumps Market Scenario   


Diaphragm pumps market is expected to expand at ~6.1% CAGR during the forecast period


The key drivers of diaphragm pumps market are rising investments in water & wastewater industry and increased demand of double diaphragm pumps in chemicals industry. According to the Global Water Intelligence (GWI), the global investments in water infrastructure is expected to reach USD 449 billion between 2018 and 2030 in order to meet UN’s sustainable development goals for water and sanitation. The upgradation of water infrastructure would require the deployment of pumps for transferring liquids and for dewatering applications. Also, these pumps are deployed in municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants. Diaphragm pumps have problems regarding pulsation. These pumps have pulsed flow and can cause problems to the piping systems. Therefore, this factor can restrain the growth of global market.  Double diaphragm pumps are used in pharmaceutical industry for precise flow measurement. The rising investments in the pharmaceutical sector is expected to be an opportunity in the global market.  


Diaphragm pumps global market has been segmented on the basis of operation, mechanism, discharge pressure, and end-user. On the basis of mechanism, the market is classified into air operated and electrically operated. Among these, air operated segment is expected to dominate the market. AOD pumps are essentially leak-free as there are only stationary seals between wetted parts and the outside environment. Furthermore, in AOD pumps, less wear is observed as compared to electrically operated diaphragm pumps because of pressure balancing by the compressed air supply. The global market of diaphragm pumps is segmented into single acting and double acting based on operation. On the basis of discharge pressure, the market is classified into up to 80 bar, 80-200 bar, and above 200 bar. Up to 80 bar is estimated to hold the largest share in the global market. The diaphragm pumps industry is segmented by end-use as oil & gas, food & beverage, water & wastewater, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, power generation, and others. The water & wastewater segment is expected to dominate the global market of diaphragm pumps due to rising use of these pumps for water sanitation, transfer, and dewatering applications, globally.

Diaphragm pump (also known as membrane pump) is a type of positive displacement pump, which reciprocates diaphragm to move fluids, gas, and gas-liquid mixtures. These pumps also use a combination of reciprocating action and either a ball valve or a flapper valve to transfer the liquids. Diaphragm pumps are self-priming and are an ideal choice for transferring viscous fluids. These pumps can transfer liquids who have low, medium, and high viscosities. The key components of diaphragm pumps are air chamber, air distribution system, outer diaphragm plate, inner diaphragm plate, valve ball, valve seat, discharge manifold, liquid chamber, diaphragm, and suction manifold. Such pumps can handle aggressive chemicals, such as acids because these pumps can be constructed with diaphragms and a wide variety of materials as per the requirement.    


Diaphragm pumps market by region is segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia-Pacific is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period due to the industrialization and rising investments in food & beverage sector in the region. China and India are the key countries driving the market in Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period owing to investments in water & wastewater industry in the region.


Intended Audience


The intended audience of diaphragm pumps global market are diaphragm pump suppliers/distributors/manufacturers, manufacturing & processing industries, power generation companies, environment research institutions, manufacturers of valves, water & wastewater associations, energy & power associations, and government & research organizations.
