Chinese Positive Displacement (PD) Pumps Market Rising Demand for PD Pumps due to the Increase in Infrastructure and Investments
The major industry challenges during the seven-year forecast period (2011 to 2017) are as follows:
-End-user demand force pump manufacturers to provide solutions instead of single pumps.
-Joint ventures and M&As among pump manufacturers, distributors, and design suppliers continue to increase.
-Application of sophisticated pumps pressurizes pump manufacturers to undertake technical training for clients. The major market drivers from 2011 to 2017 are as follows:
-Focus on enhancing manufacturing competitiveness spurs replacement opportunities and adoption of advanced pumps.
-Plans for several large oil fields (drilling) and the development of oil and gas multiphase transportation boosts the demand for PD pumps.
-Targeted infrastructure spending in the 12th five-year plan creates demand for PD pumps. The major market restraints from 2011 to 2017 are as follows:
-Rising demand for centrifugal pumps led by increasing industrial investments negatively affects the growth of the PD pumps market.
-Reduction of profit margins in all the PD pump production segments has reduced interest among manufacturers.
The revenue compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2010 to 2017 is anticipated to be (%) percent, which means that the market will experience a period of rapid growth during that time. There is a significant distinction between the prices of PD pumps for the higher-end markets and the lower-end markets. The higher-end market is driven by technology, and prices are on the rise; however, the lower-end market is driven by price competition and prices are on the decline. In 2017, revenue in the total PD pumps market is expected to reach $million, which is nearly triple the revenue in 2010. When compared to rotary pumps, reciprocating and peristaltic pumps are witnessing a faster growth rate. However, rotary pumps will remain the leading product segment over the forecast period. In 2010, there were more than PD pump manufacturers in China. The M&As among manufacturers is on the rise; as a result, by 2017, the number of manufacturers is likely to reduce to .
PD pumps displace a known quantity of liquid with each revolution of the pumping elements. This is performed by trapping liquid between the pumping elements and a stationary casing. Pumping element designs include gears, lobes, rotary pistons, vanes, and screws.
PD pumps are used in a wide range of applications, including chemical processing and liquid delivery and food, dairy, and beverage processing. They are also used in the marine, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical domains. Their versatility and popularity is due, in part, to their relatively compact design, high-viscosity performance, continuous flow regardless of differential pressure, and ability to handle high differential pressure.
According to basic operating principles, PD pumps are divided into three main classes:
Market Overview—Polarized Price Distribution
The price of PD pumps is influenced by the following factors: volume, quality, function, operating principle, efficiency, and application.
Price ranges are wide. Average price tends to increase every year, at around 5 percent.
The increase is due to the following factors:
-Advancements in technology and rising R&D costs
-Incentives for manufacturers to increase profit margins
