The market for heat exchangers has considerably grown in the recent years in developing nations such as China, India, and Japan, owing to increase in investments in chemicals, petrochemicals, oil & gas, and heat ventilation and air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) industries. Moreover, shell & tube heat exchangers have enhanced demand across aforementioned regions, owing to its wide operating pressure, temperature range, and growth of chemical industry. In addition, high purity standards, stringent environmental regulations, surge of energy demand in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA drive the shell & tube heat exchangers market on a very large scale. The heat exchangers market was valued at $12,611 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $20,118 million by 2022. However, the increase in cost of raw materials used for shell & tube heat exchangers manufacturing is expected to inhibit the growth to some extent.
The shell & tube heat exchangers are process equipment’s that facilitate the exchange of heat between two fluids, which are at different temperatures while they restrict the blending of liquids. In addition, emerging trends that have a direct impact on the dynamics of the chemical industry include development of waste heat recovery heat exchangers and introduction of exhaust gas re-circulation coolers. The demand for heat exchangers is also expected to surge, with the growth of chemical, petrochemical, and oil & gas industries. In addition, rise in number of oil-field projects and development in infrastructure augment the market growth. However, the heat exchanger market is expected to decline with the entry of new vendors and startups.
The heat exchanger market is segmented based on type, end-user industry, material of construction, and geography. Based on type segment, the market is classified into shell & tube, plate & frame, air-cooled, micro-channel, and others (gasketed, welded, brazed, and finned tube). The plate & frame type segment registered significant growth during 2014 and is expected to grow throughout the forecasted years. The oil and gas industry segment is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. By material of construction, the market is segmented into carbon-steel, stainless-steel, nickel and others (nickel alloys, copper, titanium, molybdenum). Geographically, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Europe accounted for more than one-fourth share of the total revenue in 2015, followed by Latin America and Asia-Pacific.

Heat exchangers are devices designed to transfer heat between two or more fluids and between a solid surface and fluids at different temperatures. In several heat exchangers, such as gasketed and brazed type, heat transfer between fluids takes place through a separating wall or heat transfer takes place in and out of a wall in a transient manner (transfer of heat from one medium to another medium. In heat exchangers, such as gasketed plate heat exchanger, the fluids are separated by a compact and lightweight heat transfer surface, thereby avoiding sizing problems of heat exchanger and acting as efficient method for heat exchange between two liquid streams. These are used in power plants, chemical plants, tural gas processing, sewage treatment, and petroleum refineries. They are also used in air conditioning and ventilation applications as they remove heat from engine. Moreover, enormous applications of plate & frame exchangers in food & beverage, petroleum, chemical-, and hydrocarbon processing is expected to propel the market growth in coming years.
Currently, the global heat exchangers market witnesses numerous opportunities, owing to rapid increase in development of end-user industry in Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. Governments of emerging tions are facing persistent power shortages issues, thereby taking measures to constantly upgrade their power generation capacity in order to meet the demand from industries and households. Many new power plants powered by steam & gas turbines are commissioned, thereby acting as an emerging factor for the growth of the market. Tremendous rise in the renewable energy sector over the past few years is at surge for heat exchanger industry owing to various ongoing projects for improving power generation capacity.
Shell & tube heat exchanger accounted for nearly one-fourth share, in terms of value, in 2015. In response to the rise of shell & tube heat exchanger in engine coolers, condensers, and in refrigeration systems witness high demand globally. Furthermore, increase in demand for shell & tube in oil & gas exploration processes act as a key factor responsible for market growth.
