Global Peristaltic Pumps Market - 2022-2029
The global peristaltic pumps market size was worth US$ XX million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2022-2029).
A peristaltic pump is an electrical device used for uniform and regulated fluid distribution or fluid transfer without contact between the pump and the fluid. It is a positive pressure pump kind of positive displacement pump used for pumping a range of fluids. A peristaltic pump's operation is based on pipe pushing. The pipeline's blackmail operation is carried by a rotating wheel positioned in the pipeline's tube. Several pipe pressure points determine the precision of the pump.
The elasticity of the pipeline enables it to open and creates a sub-pressure by increasing the volume, allowing suction of up to 0.9 bar. The actual pumping principle, known as peristalsis, is based on the hose or tube alternatingly compressing and relaxing, pulling content in and propelling product away from the pump. When these suction and discharge principles are combined, they produce a powerful self-priming positive displacement action. Peristaltic pumps are used for dosing and transferring liquid items ranging from chemicals to sludge to ingredients and food goods.
Growing demand in emerging countries such as India & China and increasing demand from the pharmaceutical, water & wastewater treatment and food & beverage industries are key drivers. With government policies and environmental laws highlighting the importance of wastewater treatment and product quality in the pharmaceutical and food & beverage industries, the demand for peristaltic pumps has skyrocketed.
Growing investments in expanding the water & wastewater treatment plants across the world
Maintaining a sufficient drinking water supply is a major concern for many countries worldwide. As groundwater levels decline, contaminants and industrial effluents contaminate the available reserves. Peristaltic pumps are a major integral component of municipal, industrial, residential, commercial and other water treatment systems. Traditional wastewater treatment methods like filtration are being phased out in favor of systems that merge peristalsis with flow meters and sophisticated digital control and monitoring systems.
The new technologies allow for precise chemical dosages to maximize the flow of conditioned water. Rising freshwater demands, diminishing sources, increasing population and industrial sector growth are only a few contributing to global water scarcity. Growing investments in this area are expected to propel the peristaltic pumps market.
Growing pharmaceutical sector
In the pharmaceutical and medical industries, megatrends have given corporations access to real-time data, making strategic decisions about product management, supply chain management and operational operations. The discipline of smart surgery employs sophisticated medical technology that delivers real-time information to surgeons and aids in decision-making in the operating room.
Smart surgery involves robotics, smart surgical instruments, unique visualization systems, augmented reality to imaging, sensors, software and live data. The growing acceptability of smart surgery will increase the success rate of surgeries and the number of procedures performed. The increased number of surgeries will raise demand for various medical equipment, including peristaltic pumps.
Peristaltic pumps are commonly used in the pharmaceutical and medical industries to manufacture biological and medicinal products, process botanical drugs and herbs, isolate active medicinal principles and manufacture pharmaceutical products for internal & external consumption in a variety of forms.
Frequent replacement of tubes & hoses and price sensitivity
Although peristaltic pumps require little maintenance, hoses and tubes must be replaced regularly after handling corrosive or reactive fluids. The replacements are affordable, but repeated replacements cause the process to halt and result in fluid pollution. Furthermore, operating the pumps above their design pressure would cause the tube or hose. The price of a peristaltic pump is determined by its operating range and construction material (MoC). The price of peristaltic pumps rises in tandem with the cost of raw materials. The majority of peristaltic pumps are custom-made to meet the needs of the end-use industries.
Cutting-edge automation technology, such as Ethernet and BUS options, raises the product's price. The peristaltic pump market will benefit from modernization and increased customer awareness of the benefits of peristaltic pumps. However, due to a lack of product differentiation, price increases in the industry are sensitive. Price changes for peristaltic pumps cause buyers to switch to other manufacturers.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
COVID-19 has a good overall influence on the peristaltic pump market, which is predicted to rise by 7.4 percent in 2020. The pharmaceutical and medical end-use industries are driving the spike in peristaltic pumps during the epidemic. With the spread of COVID-19 across countries and more than 33 million confirmed cases, most wealthy countries' healthcare infrastructure crumbled, with shortages of beds, drugs, medical personnel, equipment and clothing.
To meet shortages, Asia-Pacific countries such as China, India and other Southeast Asian countries boosted the production of key medical equipment. It will increase the demand for peristaltic pumps in 2020, as will the demand for vial filling machines, which will be employed during the production process for COVID vaccines.
By type, the peristaltic pumps market is segmented into peristaltic tube pumps and peristaltic hose pumps.
Rising demand for the peristaltic tube pumps
Low-pressure pumps, which often have dry casings and non-reinforced casings and use rollers to create compressive force, are known as peristaltic tube pumps. The pumps can operate at a maximum working pressure of 4 bar. The compatibility of a peristaltic pump with a specific type of fluid is determined by the design and material of the tubing used. Polyvinylchloride (PVC), silicone rubber and fluoropolymer are some of the tubing materials employed.
According to the application, tubing can be chosen based on its chemical compatibility, pressure, temperature, size, gas permeability, life expectancy, transparency and cost. The tubing size determines the pump's flow rate and the growing pharmaceutical and medical industries push the peristaltic tube pumps.
Growing pharmaceutical and other end-use industries in Asia-Pacific
Peristaltic pumps are in significant demand in Asia-Pacific's economies, including China, India, Japan and South Korea. Due to the region's expanding manufacturing and other end-use industries, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market for peristaltic pumps. Global peristaltic pump manufacturers focus on this region since it has the fastest-growing industrial sector, with expanding markets such as Indonesia and Malaysia.
Asia-Pacific is a major producer of pharmaceuticals and medical equipment. It was a critical factor in the region's market growth during COVID-19, as Asia-Pacific supplied crucial medical supplies worldwide. To fulfill the demand in Europe and North America, the region delivered a huge quantity of ventilators. The COVID-19 vaccine is also planned to be manufactured in India, which will increase the demand for vial filling machines that use peristaltic pumps.
The peristaltic pump market is highly competitive, competing on product quality and regional expansion. For example, Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) invested US$ 25.3 million in July 2020 to establish a new 16,200 m2 production plant in Aflex, Yorkshire.
Cole-Parmer Instrument Company LLC will release the New MASTERFLEX ISMATEC REGLO, a digital peristaltic pump perfect for laboratories, in July 2020. It is outfitted with flow-driven technology that allows for precise dispensing. The new Reglo pumps feature a greater broad flow range, with dosage options ranging from 0.00009 to 368 mL/min.
ProMinent Group will deploy the DULCODOS SAFE-IBC metering and drainage station for chemical safety in April 2020. A specialized metering and drainage station for Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) provides practically full residual drainage.
Verder Group will launch the Rapide 5000 peristaltic pump in March 2020, which combines single or three-phase-powered industrial gear motors. The pump works well as a stand-alone single- or double-head pump or as part of a larger system, such as a printing press.
