About Diaphragm Pumps
Diaphragm pumps are categorized as positive displacement pumps that are used mainly in industrial applications, which involve pumping and lifting of heavy fluids, such as sludge, slurry, or mud. Sludge is a semi-solid slurry that is produced following the treatment of wastewater treatment or as a settled suspension from numerous industrial process. Industrial wastewater, also termed as sludge, is generated from biological or physical processes. Sludge and slurry cause a lot of problems for any industry, especially when the process needs to be continuous and any downtime will interrupt the entire process.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global diaphragm pump market to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global diaphragm pump market for 2016-2020. The market size has been estimated based on demand for diaphragm pumps from various end-user segments.The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Diaphragm Pump Market 2016-2020

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are Alltech Dosieranlagen, Blue-White Industries, DEPAMU Pump Technology, EMEC, ProMinent Dosiertechnik, SEEPEX, SEKO, SPX, Verderair, Watson-Marlow Fluid technology, Pump Solutions, and Tapflo
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said that next generation industrial automation is one of the major trends which led to the growth of this market. The growing popularity of digital pumping solutions is a major trend in the global diaphragm pump market. Diaphragm pumps are widely used to work in accordance with digital input signals. The digitalization process of diaphragm pumps requires process controllers and variable speed drives. Advanced digital pumps have the capability to detect flaws in the system, such as cavitation, and provide efficient solutions to process operational requirements. The adoption of digital technology has increased the overall efficiency of diaphragm pumps. In addition, digital pumping solutions are capable of accurately monitoring the flow and speed of fluids. This trend is expected to boost the global diaphragm pump market during the forecast period.
According to the report, one of the main drivers aiding the growth prospects for this market is the adoption of solar pumps. The UN estimates that agriculture accounts for 70% of global freshwater use, a fact that must be considered in the light of the amount and consistency of power required to obtain the water. In many rural areas of India, Pakistan, Yemen, Bangladesh, and South Africa, there are restrictions on continuous access to power grids. Therefore, in these regions, most of the electricity needed for agricultural purposes is produced using diesel generators, which cause noise and environmental pollution and are costly to operate. When the demand for water increases during the growing season the price of the fuel also soars.
Further, the report states that fluctuations in oil and gas industry is impacting the demand for metering pumps. There may be indications that the demand and supply of crude oil may finally be balancing out with the recent rise in oil prices. The global oil market was rocked by a period of volatility with prices falling from more than USD 100 per barrel in late 2014 to USD 50 per barrel in June 2016. In the best case scenario, oil prices could rise until production increases so that the decline in inventories due to the decrease in drilling activities is offset. On the other hand, the decrement in price of oil will result in a structural change in crude oil demand-supply dynamics.
