Follow us on LinkedIn – Heat exchangers are essential heat transfer devices used in all modern industrial, engineering, and commercial applications ranging from automotive, aerospace, commercial building HVAC to heating, cooling, and heat recovery applications in industrial plants, manufacturing facilities and power plants. A core component of all thermal systems, heat exchangers are vital and indispensable to energy conversion and utilization. Incremental improvements in energy efficiency have emerged as a key differentiating factor for manufacturers to compete in the marketplace. Technology innovations including the development of micro channel heat exchangers are poised to drive future gains in the market.
In addition to technology innovation, demand continues to be driven by rapid industrialization in developing countries and increasing investments in manufacturing plant infrastructures. Recovering global Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) is encouraging current growth in the market. Manufacturing output worldwide expanded and ended on an encouraging year-end performance in 2013, largely due to the recovery in demand and trade in countries such as United States, Japan and Germany. Industrial output in China expanded as a result of improved exports to Europe, as the region continues its fragile recovery. Shale gas revolution in the United States and its hidden game changing implications for the country’s manufacturing competitiveness in the form of lower prices of natural gas, is indirectly benefiting demand for heat exchangers. Also, in the United States, the fiscal cliff drama is now receding into the background with the threat of debt default eliminated by the unconditional suspension of the debt limit. Economic growth is witnessing a strong comeback as the economy now remains free to borrow, expand, and create new employment opportunities. Against this backdrop, demand for heat exchangers is poised to benefit, largely because increased investments in plant capacity expansions and upgrades will generate new and replacement demand in the market.
Increasing demand for energy worldwide is feeding optimism in the world oil & gas industry, which in turn is benefitting capital spending. This continuously growing demand for energy worldwide will keep the oil and gas industry at the forefront of radical technology development and poised to benefit is demand for energy efficient heat exchangers. Increasing investments in the establishment of oil/petroleum refining plants is also expected to benefit demand in the market. Heat exchangers play a vital role in regulating temperatures in oil refinery reactors. Significant capacity growth for oil refining is forecast to stem from the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Key factors driving oil refining activities include strong demand for oil & gas, increased demand for automotive fuel especially diesel fuel which requires additional refining, and growing demand for refined oil products, among others. Automotive fuel refining is especially driven by the global trend towards sulphur content reduction in motor fuels. In the United States, increased production of light shale oil has doubled the throughput at oil refining plants thus resulting in increased investments in capacity expansions and new plant construction.
