Mud Pumps Market Scenario


Mud pumps market is projected to grow USD 872.2 million at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period 2022 - 2030. The mud pumps market size is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. A mud pump is a large, high-pressure (up to 7500 psi), single-acting triplex reciprocating pump used to circulate mud in a well at a specific flow rate (between 100 and 1300 gallons per minute). Instead of a triplex reciprocating pump, a double-acting two-cylinder reciprocating pump is occasionally utilized as a mud pump. Typically, a rig operator keeps two or three mud pumps on hand, one of which is active and the others on standby in case of an emergency. Mud is gathered up with the use of mud pumps, which use suction to circulate the mud from the wellbore to the surface during the drilling process.


Increased demand for directional and horizontal drilling, higher pressure handling capabilities, and some new oil discoveries are the main drivers of this market's growth. Mud pumps are specialized pumps that are used to transport and circulate drilling fluids and other related fluids in a variety of industries, including mining and onshore and offshore oil and gas. The global energy demand is boosting the market for mud pumps. However, high drilling costs, environmental concerns, and shifting government energy and power laws may stymie industry growth.


Innovation in technology is the key for further growth for example, MTeq uses Energy Recovery’s Pressure exchanger technology in the drilling industry, as the ultimate engineered solution to increase productivity and reduce operating costs in pumping process by rerouting rough fluids away from high-pressure pumps, which helps reduce the cost of maintenance for operators.


Mud Pumps Market Key Players


The major key player in global mud pumps market are Flowserve (U.S.), Grundfos (Denmark), Halliburton (U.S.), Sulzer (Switzerland), KSB Group (Germany), Ebara Corporation (Japan), Weir Group (U.K), and SRS Crisafulli, Inc (U.S.). Tsurumi Pump (Japan), Shijiazhuang Industrial Pump Factory Co. Ltd (China), Excellence Pump Industry Co.Ltd (China), Kirloskar Ebara Pumps Limited (India), Xylem Inc (U.S.), and Goulds Pumps (U.S.) are among others.


Industry News


For oil drilling, LEWCO has created the W-3000 mud pump model, which can handle up to 3000 HP.



  • In the drilling business, MTeq uses Energy Recovery's Pressure exchanger technology as the ultimate engineering solution to boost productivity and lower operating costs in the pumping process by rerouting abrasive fluids away from high-pressure pumps, which helps operators save money on maintenance. The latest trend reveals that regulatory agencies are persuading manufacturers and consumers to choose electric mud pumps over fuel engine mud pumps to reduce the environmental impact of fuel engine mud pumps.


Mud Pumps Market Segmentation


The global mud pumps market is segmented on the basis of type (duplex pump, triplex pump, and others), component (fluid end and power end), application (oil & gas industry and building industry), and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World).


Based on type, mud pumps can be segmented as duplex and triplex pumps. Triplex pumps are expected to progress because of the ~30.0% lesser weight than duplex pumps offering similar efficiency. The pump transfers the fluids with the help of mechanical movements.  


Based on component, mud pumps can be segmented as fluid end and power end.


Based on application, mud pumps market can be segmented as oil & gas industry and building industry. As oil and gas fields going mature, operators must drill wells with large offset, high laterals, widening their applicability by using mud motors, and high-pressure pumps. To fulfill the demand drilling companies increase their mud pumping installation capacity, with higher flexibility. For instance, LEWCO has developed W-3000 mud pump model for oil drilling, which can handle power up to 3000 HP.

Mud Pumps Market Regional Analysis


Based on region, North America is predominant because of tight oil and shale gas sources, followed by Asia-Pacific due to the increased number of wells in the regions, especially in countries such as China and India due to the rapid urbanization and industrialization. Authorities in countries such as India, China are working on enhancing their production capacities for reducing the import bills, which ultimately help in the growth of mud pumps market.


This market is broadly driven by oil and gas industry as mud pumps are used to move massive amount of sludge and mud at the time of drilling. Countries such as China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S. have the largest number of oil wells. The demand for mud pumps will increase with the number of oil wells, across the globe.
