The manufacturers design the motors, drums, and mixers according to the different applications and sizes of the end-user industries. The increasing number of end-user industries such as water and wastewater treatment facilities, food and beverage, chemical industries, oil and gas, petrochemical industries, pharmaceutical industries, and other major industries are intensively deploying the Industrial Agitators for the different industrial processes. Such factors are increasing the overall growth of the Industrial Agitators market. Industrial Agitator Market is expected to reach approximately USD 3 Billion by 2023 growing at a 7% CAGR over the forecast period 2017-2023.


Additionally, the manufacturers of the Industrial Agitators are developing long-term supply contracts and other strategies to increase the Industrial Agitator market value. The requirement of the raw materials such as steel, titanium, nickel for the manufacturing of these industrial agitators is provided at lower costs due to the long-term contracts furnished. Such factors are also impacting the overall growth of the Industrial Agitator Industry. 


COVID 19 Analysis:


The COVID 19 pandemic has significantly affected the economic statuses of almost all countries. Therefore the governmental organizations were rapidly adopting energy conservation initiatives. Such factors have increased the demand for bio-diesel for varied applications such as commercial heating, residential, power generation, and significant others. Therefore the demand for Industrial agitators in the oil and gas market has increased in recent times.


On the other hand, the demand for pharmaceutical products has been increasing after the widespread pandemic. Such factors have impacted the overall growth of the Industrial Agitator market. 


Market Dynamics:


Market Drivers:


The increasing demand for the pharmaceutical market across the globe has significantly increased the Industrial Agitator market demand. Industrial agitators are intensively used in the pharmaceutical market to improve the performance of industrial procedures while reducing the manufacturing costs of medicines. Moreover, the increasing number of chronic illnesses across the globe is fuelling the growth of the pharmaceutical market which positively influences the Industrial Agitators market growth. 


 The potential benefits of the industrial agitators which include rapid flash mixing and precision in control, higher reliability, durability, and lower impact over environmental assets are driving the Industrial Agitator Industry growth in recent times.


Market Opportunities:


A recent report from the UN-water 2021 has stated that over 44% of the global household wastewater is not treated; they are let out to the environment without any required treatment, which causes environmental stress and water scarcity. Such factors have increased the awareness regarding the wastewater treatment and facilities related to the process. Since the industrial agitators were intensively utilized in the wastewater treatment facilities for precision control and rapid flash mixing, the Industrial Agitator Industry demand is expected to increase during the forecast period.


The European Chemical market Council has stated that the sales of the chemicals were increasing at a significant rate in the countries such as South Korea, India, and China. The increasing demand for chemicals in the Asia-pacific region has created a huge impact on the growth of the Industrial Agitator market.


Market Restraints:


The increasing installation costs and the requirement of proper maintenance and repair of these Industrial Agitators irrespective of the size of the end-user applications are hindering the overall growth of the Industrial Agitator market.


The abrasive industrial applications can potentially cause aggressive wear and tear on the vessel surface. Additionally, the scrapers in the industrial agitators are extensively exposed to excessive frictions, which might require regular maintenance and repair. Such factors impose significant ownership costs.


Market Challenges:


The manufacturers might design the agitators with the slower-moving scrape surface agitation with higher shear mixer; such designs might limit the mixing action and increase the overall time taken for the process. Such design-related issues are considered as the major challenge for the overall growth of the Industrial Agitator market.


The declining production rate of the end-user industries might also negatively impact the Industrial Agitator market growth. Additionally, the issues with the dual-agitation vessels and the multi-vessel mixing systems add more complexity to the industrial processes. 


Cumulative Growth Analysis:


Industrial agitators are gaining momentum in recent years owing to their efficient performance in various end-user industries such as the Chemical market, pharmaceuticals, mining, oil and gas, food and beverages, and cosmetics. Among the other types of industrial agitators, the drum agitator is prevalently used due to the increasing number of small-scale industries. Small-scale industries require agitators that are compact yet efficient in reducing transfer waste with minimal capital investments. The drums of the drum agitator don’t require higher manufacturing costs and are suitable for smaller-scale industries. Other benefitting factors of the drum agitators include, they produce quality output and uniform results, for the investments made. Moreover, they significantly eliminate suspension and separation issues. Such factors affect the overall growth of the Industrial Agitator market. The market value of Industrial Agitator is expected to surpass the market value of over USD 3 Billion by 2023 while registering a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. 


Value Chain Analysis:


Industrial Agitators are the devices that are used to process or combine different materials that might be in a different state. Industrial agitators are primarily used in the end-user industries such as pharmaceutical, chemical, personal care, cosmetic, food and beverages, and other products that require mixing and chemical reactions. The increasing demand for the cosmetic industries across the Asia-pacific region and the potential benefits of the industrial agitators such as increased production capacity due to their high-speed operation while producing quality output and uniform results. The increasing number of small-scale and medium-scale enterprises across the Asia-pacific regions and the increasing demand for portable and modular agitators are presenting lucrative opportunities for the overall growth of the Industrial Agitators market. However, the increasing maintenance costs of these Industrial Agitators are expected to hinder the overall growth of the Industrial Agitator market during the forecast period.
