Global Centrifugal Blowers Market to Reach $3.5 Billion by 2026
A centrifugal blower is a mechanical device that increases the gas pressure and discharges gas. The equipment makes use of the kinetic energy of its impeller to raise the volume of air streams to displace the air radially. These blowers are widely used in ventilation systems for various industrial applications. A centrifugal blower is able to produce more than 1.2 mg/cm2 pressure at a much higher flow rate than what is possible by a regular fan.
Centrifugal blowers are also called centrifugal fans. Centrifugal blowers are used in industrial applications that require constant, large volumes of oil-free air such as in air conveyor systems, cooling systems, combustion, dust control, ventilation, transporting materials, industrial vacuum applications, and other industrial processes. Centrifugal blowers find wide applications in various industrial processes. Heavy duty industries like electrical power production, metal manufacturing, petrochemical, cement production, and pollution control among others use these blowers for diverse purposes including aeration, combustion, exhaust, ventilation, cooling, particulate transport, air-purification, etc.
Centrifugal blowers are always integrated with protective housing for increased durability. The housing ensures that the blower is not clogged with foreign objects. There are curved blades in the blowers for dragging air in a circular motion for radially speeding up the flow of air. The blades move the air outward via tubes or ducts and thus provide a stable and strong airflow. The airflow is more stable and stronger compared to the airflow possible with axial fans. Horsepower of heavy-duty centrifugal blowers runs into hundreds while there are at the same time blowers with 50 hp, suitable for smaller applications.
Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Centrifugal Blowers estimated at US$3 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$3.5 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% over the analysis period. High Pressure, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 4.2% CAGR to reach US$2.2 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Medium Pressure segment is readjusted to a revised 3.6% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 22.7% share of the global Centrifugal Blowers market.
The U.S. Market is Estimated at $753 Million in 2022, While China is Forecast to Reach $553.8 Million by 2026
The Centrifugal Blowers market in the U.S. is estimated at US$753 Million in the year 2022. The country currently accounts for a 25.21% share of the global market. China, the world’s second-largest economy, is forecast to reach an estimated market size of US$553.8 Million in the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 5.8% through the analysis period. Among the other noteworthy geographic markets are Japan and Canada, each forecast to grow at 2.4% and 2.7% respectively over the analysis period. Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 3.3% CAGR while the Rest of the European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$586.5 Million by the close of the analysis period.
While weak investments and volatile industrial output will frustrate baseline growth in the industrial and manufacturing sector, manufacturing companies’ efforts to reduce costs, transform, innovate, and improve performance for better chances of survival in a tough economy, will open opportunities for new and replacement demand for innovative, high performance and energy efficient centrifugal blowers.
The market is also driven by the rising construction industry. Extensive plans for infrastructure development, in many countries, create ample growth opportunities for the market for centrifugal blowers. Infrastructure development currently is in full swing in developing countries of Asia-Pacific. Cement and steel production plants are also the major users of these blowers.
The blowers are used for eliminating gases and maintaining consistent airflow and temperature. In cement production, in particular, the blowers are used for moving calcium carbonate, silica, alumina, and iron ore further in the processes. Another important market growth-promoting factor has been the constant effort of manufacturers for developing a product design and incorporating better features. Adoption in the chemical industry would also increase significantly. The blowers here are used for exhausting high temperatures and harmful gases from chemical plants. The wood industry also has immense use of centrifugal blowers that blow off dust particles.
Product innovation and technology developments are geared towards achieving agility, efficiency, and performance improvements. The United States is one of the major markets for centrifugal blowers due to the presence of huge steel, chemical, mining, and power industries in the region. Major players in the market constantly improve products for bolstering growth. The players are focused on creating blower designs that require less power and which are durable and provide greater work efficiency. In recent years, the increased focus on sustainability as well as achieving higher efficiency has led manufacturers of centrifugal blowers to make a substantial R&D investment towards developing low noise and cost-effective products that can help in optimizing the entire processing.
This has resulted in the development of oil-free, integrally-geared centrifugal turbo blowers, which offer enhanced energy efficiency and flow rates, resulting in an energy-efficient, reliable, and continuous air supply. In addition, these industrial blowers can be easily serviced which can help in reducing operational costs, while their oil-free design also facilitates delivering clean and pure air.
