Food processing

The global population is continually on the rise, along with the increase in average life expectancy as well. This is creating a high demand for food and food products and related accessories such as boilers,” says Gaurav Mohindru, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for unit operations research.

The world cereal, grain, and milk production is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period, driven by the increasing demand for food from the large population. This growth in the consumption and production of essential edible commodities will provide sufficient thrust to the market for industrial boilers.

Chemical and petrochemical

Oil refineries and chemical plants produce petrochemicals through fluid catalytic cracking or steam cracking process. Petrochemicals find applications in major end-user industries such as construction, packaging, textiles, and transportation. There is an increasing demand for petrochemical byproducts such as ethylene, polyvinyl chloride, and polyethylene from a variety of industries. The rising overall production of chemicals together with the growing demand for petrochemicals will augment the market for industrial boilers in the chemical and petrochemical industry.

Paper and pulp

The market for paper, especially packaging paper is on an upward trend, driven by rising awareness about green practices and their benefits. Paper producers are investing in energy optimization programs by upgrading or replacing their boilers, thereby driving market growth,” says Gaurav.

Another trend in the paper market is the procurement of low-cost pulp by countries such as India, China, and South Korea from Latin American countries. Such practices are resulting in increased production of paper at lower price points. Also, the demand for packaging and labeling from various e-commerce portals is also adding to the flourishing pulp and paper industry. This increasing demand for paper and pulp processing will contribute to the rising demand for boilers in this industry.
