Leading players in the market are focused to shift their production bases to Asia Pacific in order to capitalize on the growth of scale. The global market, characteristically, is poignant towards consolidation. Several mergers were seen during the recent past; The same trend is anticipated to continue over the coming years with profitability to remain as the core strategy behind these acquisitions.
Long-term tie-ups with EPC (Engineering Procurement and Construction) companies are expected to provide high and stable sales to international manufacturers of dewatering pump. Most sales of small and medium capacity pumps take place through distributors and retailers, which generally hold multi-branded & wide variety products at their shelves.
Providing integrated offerings through diverse range of products and developing strong distribution and aftersales service network at regional and local level can provide significant opportunities for growth. In order to gain competitive advantage, strong focus on life-cycle costs analysis, including reducing operating costs through energy-efficient solutions, is highly required for product differentiation.
According to the report by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global dewatering pumps market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.2% from 2018 to 2028. In 2017, the market was worth $5,498.6 Mn and is expected to rise to a value of $9,510.2 Mn by the end of 2028.
2022-2028 Dewatering Pumps Market Outlook in Comparison to Growth Registered in 2017-2021With the expansion of residential complexes, industrialisation, and the mining sector, the need for dewatering pumps is increasing. Dewatering pumps are typically used to remove excess of water from construction and mining sites.
They are transportable equipment that are commonly used in subsurface excavation for foundations and basement space building, and are positioned at construction sites with lower ground levels to manage and maintain groundwater levels.
Various industries, particularly oil & gas, power and chemicals are investing in refurbishment of their plants and pumping systems in order to increase production efficiency. Also, rising demand for effective industrial infrastructure in developing regions, focus on retrofitting, upgrades, and replacement of ageing components are driving the sales of dewatering pumps.
Steered by surging demand, dewatering pump manufacturers are expected to focus on innovations. For instance, ARO Fluid Management introduced P35A1-EU submersible dewatering pump, which is capable of handling a wide variety of debris-laden applications.
Burgeoning Exploration Activities for New Sources of Water to Trigger High DemandGovernments of emerging drinking in Asia Pacific and MEA, particularly in countries such as South Africa, Morocco and the UAE, are focusing on improving drinking water facilities in urban as well as rural areas. Also, exploration of new water sources is expected to increase sales of pumps with enhanced capacity and efficiency for agricultural and domestic applications. Desalinization projects are also expected to contribute to adoption of pumps, as most parts of the globe still lack the basic facility of running water.
An estimated 60% of the world is still without running water. ASEAN region is witnessing an increase in water supply and sanitation projects by governments, which is likely to boost sales of centrifugal pumps for domestic and agricultural applications. It has been estimated that only 50% of the global population has access to drinking water from a piped connection providing running water in their homes or compounds. As per the analyst, the demand for dewatering pumps across the globe, especially in ASEAN countries will increase owing to these reasons.
Low Priced China-based Pumps to Act as Hindrance to Market GrowthThe presence of numerous Chinese players who are offering low-priced pumps acts as a restraint to most regional and global players offering pumps. The surging price pressure from these players is influencing the main suppliers to offer high-quality, reliable, efficient, and technologically-advanced pumps at competitive prices. However, the price sensitive nature of the market is a restraining factor on the overall revenue growth potential of the global pump market. Emergence of China as a major producer of low cost pumps, has disrupted the market to a certain extent. In order to overcome this challenge, international pump vendors need to differentiate their products through various additional services and integration of advanced technologies.
