COVID-19 pandemic impact on the hydraulic pumps industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Hydraulic Pumps Market Driver

One of the key factors driving growth in the hydraulic pumps market is the rise in oil and gas exploration activities. Hydraulic pumps are extensively used in the oil and gas sector. They are used as an alternative to gas lift systems and electric submersible pumps (ESPs). Hydraulic pumps are also favored and used where high flow rates are required, such as in wells having a heavy concentration of sand or other solids from frac operations, as they can handle high gas volumes. The global oil and gas industry is presently undergoing significant expansion and is a primary driver for the growth of the global hydraulic pumps market. There are a lot of factors leading to the expansion of the global oil and gas industry. The demand for oil and natural gas is increasing steadily due to improvements in global economic growth. The global consumption of natural gas exhibited a significant rise due to the increasing adoption of natural gas as a fuel in the last decade. Also, with the rise in fuel consumption from developing economies such as China and India, the demand for natural gas is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. The rise in investments in E and P activities will increase the demand for hydraulic pumps. These factors will thus drive the growth of the global hydraulic pumps market during the forecast period.

Key Hydraulic Pumps Market Trend

The fire-resistant hydraulic fluids (FRHFs) is a hydraulic pumps market trend that is expected to have a positive impact in the coming years. Hydraulic fluids, including lubricants, perform various functions, including protection against corrosion and wear, transferring contaminants to filters, and dissipating heat from hot zones. However, under certain conditions, these lubricants become flammable. Furthermore, there is a risk of small leaks when lubricants are pressurized in hydraulic lines. The hydraulic system becomes more susceptible to fire due to these leaks. One of the important parameters to consider in selecting the appropriate hydraulic fluid is the operating temperature, which can determine the degree of fire protection required. Some of the industrial applications of FRHFs include mining, die-casting, offshore applications, power generation, iron, and steel industry, among others. They do not readily ignite when sprayed under pressure. Besides providing lubrication and being non-corrosive, glycol fluids are more cost-effective than other hydraulic fluids. Utilizing FRHFs can not only ensure the safe operation of the hydraulic pumps but may even reduce the need for a fire-suppression system. Thus, end-users can prevent and minimize the risks of any fire-related losses by replacing the flammable hydraulic oils with fire-resistant fluids in the hydraulic systems. Such trends can have a positive impact on the growth of the market during the forecast period.
