Pressure Vessel Market Trends




  • The growing need for energy is driving the market growth




Rising demand for highly efficient pressure vessels with less power consumption and less corrosive substances is a major factor driving Market CAGR. Additionally, market players are heavily investing and establishing their production plants in these countries due to the great availability of raw materials and fewer expenses of labor charges. A growing number of manufacturing and construction projects have also increased pressure vessel demand.


Additionally, Governments in various countries across the globe are actively looking for opportunities to invest and actively renovate old industrial plants with new innovative technologies. Industry participants are increasingly integrating modern technologies such as sensors into their product segment to give customers various features and improve brand visibility. This has enabled pressure vessel manufacturers to incorporate remote monitoring systems that give real-time data and enable their users to identify potential risks so that industry professionals can make more informed decisions.


There are several sizes of pressure vessels available currently in the market. However, industrialists must always check and investigate the pump's parameters and method of controlling waterworks. In addition to that, pressure vessels are also available according to the volume of water consumption as freshwater sources are depleting gradually; industry professionals should always look for pressure systems that either consume less volume of water or establish a wastewater treatment from which water can be derived and introduced into pressure system for meeting its demand for water supply. Major market players are also incorporating sensors and other advanced tools for monitoring and calculating significant pressure differences. Thus, driving the Pressure Vessel market revenue.


Pressure Vessel Market Segment Insights:


Pressure Vessel Material Insights


The Pressure Vessel market segmentation, based on material, includes Steel alloys, other alloys, and Composites. The composites segment dominated the market. Rising demand in emerging economies is a crucial factor driving this segment's growth. The glass fiber and carbon fiber composite industries were earlier seen only in countries of North America and Europe. For example, demand for glass fiber and carbon fiber composites in the aerospace and transportation sectors of countries such as India has increased due to increasing consumer demand for low-cost and lightweight vehicles.


The steel alloys segment will also record the highest CAGR during the forecast period. It will provide greater formability and strength, enhance corrosion resistance and find great use in power projects.


Pressure Vessel Product Insights


The Pressure Vessel market segmentation, based on product, includes Boilers, Nuclear reactors, Separators, and Others. The boilers category dominated the market. The rising demand from residential and commercial units is a major factor driving this segment's revenue growth. Unlike conventional heating systems, boilers utilize a process termed radiant heating to heat objects efficiently within a space. In addition, it may also utilize radiators, baseboard heaters, or in-floor piping to spread warmth throughout a space. High energy efficiency and portability are two significant factors that have increased the adaptability of boilers among homeowners.


Pressure Vessel Application Insights


The Pressure Vessel market segmentation, based on Application, includes Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Power generation, and others. The chemicals category generated the most income. Rising demand for highly customized and efficient heat exchangers that offer long-term usage is a crucial factor driving market growth in this industry. In addition, the physical-chemical properties of gases and solids vary extremely. Therefore, a high-performance pressure vessel such as a shell & tube heat exchanger is crucial and beneficial as it aids in efficiently heating and cooling such fluids having corrosive properties.
