Positive outlook toward the expansion of medium scale industries along with expanding food processing sector will further strengthen the demand for these products. Robust industrial sector growth across developing countries including Indonesia, Poland and Philippines will further propel the business growth.

Ongoing investment toward the expansion and upgradation of refineries coupled with growing demand for primary metals will drive the 100-250 MMBtu/hr industrial boiler market. For instance, in July 2017, the Government of Nigeria issued license for 10 modular refineries with an objective to expand the country’s refining capacity.

Industrial Boiler Market, By Product

Fire-tube industrial boiler market is anticipated to grow over 3% by 2024. Compact design, low maintenance, simple installation, and operational suitability to meet variable steam demand are some of the underlying parameters which will thrust the product penetration across medium -scale industries.

Water-tube industrial boiler market will witness growth on account of positive outlook toward manufacturing sector including pulp & paper and refineries. The ability of these boilers to achieve high temperature and steam pressure will boost the deployment of these products across heavy industries.

Industrial Boiler Market, By Technology

Condensing industrial boilers will witness large scale adoption on account of. growing demand for energy efficient steam generating units across diverse range of industries. These systems tap latent heat generated from outgoing flue gases, thereby allowing considerably high thermal efficiency when compared to conventional heating units. In addition, legislative initiatives aimed at energy conservation and environmental sustainability will further favor the business scenario.

Industrial Boiler Market, By Fuel

Gas fired industrial boiler market is projected to surpass 30 thousand units by 2024. Regulatory measures toward minimizing carbon emissions along with the expansion of natural gas supply infrastructure across industrialized economies will boost the product demand. Under the 2015 COP23 conference, major economies announced their plans to reduce the impact of GHG emissions. For instance, Japan pledged 26% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 when compared to 2013 levels.

Industrial Boiler Market, By Application

Chemical industrial boiler market is set to witness gains over 3% by 2024. Growing demand for bulk petrochemicals, organics and plastic resins has resulted in large investments across chemical sector which will boost the product demand. For instance, as of December 2016, the U.S. has announced 275 chemical production projects worth USD 170 billion.

Food processing, in 2017, accounted for over 8% of the global industrial boiler market share. Growing consumer inclination toward processed food along with expanding population base has resulted in increased investment toward the expansion of food processing units. For instance, in 2017, Snyder’s Lance announced investments exceeding USD 7 million for expansion of its Bakery facility. Ongoing government efforts toward ensuring food security will further compliment the business outlook.
