Pressure Vessel Market: Growth Drivers

The increasing thermal energy demand drives the market growth

The primary factor driving the global pressure vessel industry market's expansion is the rise in the world's demand for thermal energy, which is causing pressure vessels to be used more frequently. The energy contained in a system that controls its temperature is referred to as thermal energy. Different pressure vessels are used in the manufacturing process, where nuclear energy is used to produce thermal power. These vessels serve as one of several barriers that keep radioactive material out of the atmosphere.

For instance, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), an intergovernmental organization with headquarters in Austria, projects that global nuclear-generating capability will more than double to 873 gigawatts net electrical (GW(e)) by 2050, from current levels of around 390 GW(e) in 2021. Therefore, the primary factor contributing to the development of the market is the increasing global thermal energy demand, which is causing pressure vessels to be used more frequently.

Pressure Vessel Market: Restraints

Metal parts frequently corroding hinder the market growth                                              

Pressure vessels are now being adopted and implemented by manufacturing industries all over the globe as a result of the growing demand for cutting-edge products. A pressure vessel is a kind of sophisticated airtight receptacle that helps resist a lot of pressure. Major sectors like civil, military, chemical, and petrochemical all depend on it heavily. Because it can reduce hydraulic shocks in the system, it is also a vital part of scientific study facilities. The structure and longevity of pressure vessels are, however, significantly influenced by several external environmental variables, such as the type and concentration of reagents used. The corrosion process is sped up by the mixture of these chemicals with alkaline and acidic materials. Corrosion has major effects on pressure vessels, and an increase in internal pressure has a catalytic impact that speeds up the corrosion reaction.

Pressure Vessel Market: Opportunities

Technological advancement provides a lucrative opportunity

A crucial trend gaining traction in the pressure vessel industry is technological innovation. For better design and analysis as well as to gain a competitive advantage in the market, the key players are putting an increasing amount of emphasis on integrating safer and smarter safety systems. For instance, Hexagon, a Swedish provider of sensor, software, and automated solutions, introduced PV Elite 23, a comprehensive solution for the design, analysis, and assessment of vessels and heat exchangers, in January 2021. With the aid of automatic design options, users can swiftly, profitably, and efficiently modify vessel designs while also saving time. Thus, the growing technological advancements are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market growth.

Pressure Vessel Market: Challenges

Volatility in the raw material price poses a major challenge

The volatility in the raw material price poses a major challenge to global pressure vessel market growth. For instance, the price of the hot rolled coil (HRC) by steel mills was lowered to Rs 59,800 per tonne on February 8 from Rs 60,900 per tonne on February 1, according to SteelMint. Over the past six to eight months, prices have fluctuated between over Rs 55,000/tonne and Rs 60,000/tonne.

Pressure Vessel Market: Segmentation

The global pressure vessel industry is segmented based on material, product, end-use, and region.

Based on the material, the global market is bifurcated into hastelloy, titanium, nickel & nickel alloys, tantalum, steel, and others. The steel segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. Due to their low cost, high corrosion resistance, excellent tensile strength, resistance to vibrations and shocks, ease of recycling, and ability to endure humid conditions or high temperatures, carbon steel, and stainless steel have remained the preferred materials. Besides, the nickel & nickel alloys segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period.

The growth in the segment is attributed to various properties such as adaptability to harsh environments, durability, and resilience to carburization and oxidation. Hastelloy, Incoloy, Monel, and Carpenter Alloy 60 are some of the various varieties of nickel alloys. Nuclear plants are frequently made of nickel and nickel alloys.

Based on the product, the global pressure vessel industry is segmented into the boiler, nuclear reactor, separator, and others. The boiler segment accounted for the largest market share in 2022 and is expected to continue the same pattern during the forecast period. The increase in revenue for this segment is primarily driven by rising demand from both residential and commercial sites. Boilers, as opposed to conventional heating systems, use a technique called radiant heating to effectively hot objects within a space.

To distribute heat throughout a space, it may also make use of radiators, baseboard heaters, or in-floor plumbing. Boilers are more adaptable among residents due to two important factors: high energy efficiency and portability. A boiler has fewer moving components than other traditional heating systems as well. Because there were smaller mechanical components, furnaces could operate with less strain.

Based on the end-use, the global pressure vessel market is segmented into chemicals & petrochemicals, oil & gas, power generation, and others. The chemicals & petrochemicals segment is growing at a rapid rate over the forecast period. The rising demand for chemicals and chemical products from different end-use applications is responsible for his dominance. One of the key elements influencing product demand is the growing number of chemical facilities in various economies around the world.

Recent Developments:
