Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger Market: Overview

Heat exchanger is a mechanical device which is used for exchanging or extracting heat from hot fluid to cold fluid. These are used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. Fluids used can be single or two phase. Depending on the exchanger type, these fluids can be separated or in direct contact with the shell. Transfer of heat from one fluid to another is an operation, which is used in several chemical industries. These are commonly made of shell, which act as outer jacket for the transfer of energy and tubing’s are embedded or fabricated into the shell while manufacturing a heat exchanger. The material of construction for tubes and shell are mostly same and tubes are embedded in shell with the help of baffles.

Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger Market: Trends & Demands

The chemical industry is growing at a significant pace due to the rise in investments in research & development of emerging chemicals such as specialty chemicals, and fine chemicals. These chemicals require equipment for heat exchange application, which is fueling the demand for shell & tube heat exchangers. This, in turn, is anticipated to drive the shell & tube heat exchanger market in the near future. Rise in demand for petrochemicals, fibers, industrial gases, fertilizers, chlor-alkali, and other organic and inorganic chemicals, which in turn has led to the increase in demand for manufacturing equipment’s such as boilers, chillers, heat exchangers etc across the globe. All these factors are likely to fuel the shell and tube heat exchanger market.

Manufacturers operating in the global shell & tube heat exchanger market strive to explore new and better ways to manufacture shell & tube heat exchangers. However, volatility in prices of metals and high cost of production are likely to inhibit the shell & tube heat exchanger market during the forecast period.
