MARKET OVERVIEW- GLOBAL WELDED SPIRAL HEAT EXCHANGERS MARKET
The welded spiral heat exchanger is built by rolling two long metal plates around the center core to form two concentric spiral flow passes, one for each fluid. The edges of the plate are welded shut so that each fluid stays within its own passage and there is no flow bypassing or intermixing. The width and spacing of the channel plate (the gap between plates) are designed for specified operation, maximum heat transfer, and ease of access. These heat exchangers are built to deal with the toughest challenges of heat transfer. Whether it's frequent fouling of dirty media, or restriction of pressure drop and floor space, it's the ultimate approach for liquid-to-liquid and two-phase activities. Due to these characteristics, welded spiral heat exchangers are used in various industries such as chemical, food & beverage, petrochemical, HVAC & refrigeration, power generation, pulp & paper, wastewater and other industries. Increasing demand for heat exchangers in HVAC, petrochemicals, chemical, and food & beverages industries across the developing countries is anticipated to provide ample of new growth opportunity for the market.
The market for welded spiral heat exchangers is driven by growing preference for welded spiral heat exchanger in petrochemical industry, growing industrial development in the Asia Pacific region and growing concern for sustainable energy development and intensive demand for energy efficiency is augmenting the growth of the heat exchanger. Welded spiral heat exchangers deliver high thermal efficiency in comparison to shell & tube heat exchangers. They also have a minimal footprint and are easy to access during maintenance and repair. The benefits provided by the welded spiral type of heat exchangers are expected to boost their demand for dangerous and aggressive fluids in the petrochemical industries, as leakage is essentially excluded due to welded channel construction. On the other side, rapid economic development in developing countries is expected to boost the growth of the market during the estimated time period.
The major players focus on economies of scope more than economies of scale as welded spiral heat exchangers can be used for many applications across different end-use industries. Hence, new product developments and extensive marketing activities play an important role in giving market players a competitive advantage. In addition, the increase in the thermal management system of the batteries, the increase in technological progress and the increase in research and development activities is expected to provide rising new growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period.
Rising demand for electric and hybrid vehicles, increasing complexity associated with designing advanced and lightweight heat exchangers, and increasing raw material price are among the major factors which are expected to restrain the growth of the market over the forecast period.
