Diaphragm pump is a positive displacement pump which is also known as Air operated Double Diaphragm Pump (AODD) or Membrane pump.These pumps transfer fluids at a persistent volume and rate volume .It operates by holding a specific quantity of fluid in it and later disperse it from an outlet. They are driven with help of pneumatic energywhich is attained with the help of a pilot valve and andair distribution valve located in the center unit. In a diaphragm pump fluid usually transfers through two manifolds .
The global market for pneumatic diaphragm pumps is drivendue to their ability to exhibit consistent performance whilehandling fluids with high viscosity and to cope up with pressure fluctuations. They have the capability to handle corrosive fluids and maintain high level hygiene standards efficiently.Diaphragm pumps have received increased market growth due to high accuracy and less maintenance. Rising demand for environment friendly waste water treatment and disposal coupled with increased modern infrastructure needs will fuel the market growth. In addition to this, necessity for automation into processes along with strict environment related guidelines is expected to drive the market.
The pneumatic diaphragm pumps market is classified on the basis of operation, pressure, end user and regions. On the basis ofoperation, the pneumatic diaphragm pumps market is segmented into single acting diaphragm pumps and double acting diaphragm pump. On the basis of pressure, the pneumatic diaphragm pumps market is segmented into Up to 80 bar, 80 to 200 bar and above 200 bar. On the basis of end user, the pneumatic diaphragm pumps market is segmented into oil &gas, chemicals & petrochemicals, water & wastewater, pharmaceuticals and food & beverage.
The market for pneumatic diaphragm pumpsis evaluated based on five regions namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East. Asia Pacific holds a major share in the pneumatic diaphragm pumps market due to presence of manufacturers and extensive user base in the developing countries such as India and China. The availability of cheap labor and various government initiatives supporting foreign investments has boosted the pneumatic diaphragm pumps market in the region. Rapidly flourishing urbanization coupled with modern infrastructure demand is also expected to boost the pneumatic diaphragm pumps market.
