Overview of the global industrial evaporators market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global industrial evaporators market will witness a steady growth and post a moderate CAGR of almost 7% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the conversion of sea water into potable water in marine vessels as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Large ocean-going vessels have inbuilt evaporating plants onboard, which are used to produce fresh water. Such equipment helps ships to reduce their dependence on external sources for fresh water. Diesel-powered ocean liners utilize excess heat to generate fresh water, where the water used to cool the engines is passed through a heat exchanger and is subsequently cooled using concentrated seawater to yield fresh water. The temperature of the seawater and engine load fluctuations are major factors that can interfere with the production of clean water aboard a ship. However, this can be countered by the use of evaporators that require simple adjustments. Wastewater evaporators can also utilize the waste heat from engine jacket water, engine exhausts, and other heat sources to produce fresh water; thereby, reducing operational costs.

Recent regulations such as the US EPA effluent limitation guidelines will compel many leading vendors to invest in their R&D to design and manufacture industrial waste water evaporators with advanced technologies that can drastically reduce toxic waste water discharge from power plants. These mandatory guidelines have induced leading vendors to come up with innovative solutions and one of the leading vendors GE, has already introduced a new evaporation technology that aids in the reduction of energy costs and chemical additions.

Overview of the global industrial mixer market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global industrial mixer market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 5% by 2020. Process industries have started evaluating their production flow and exploring possibilities of integrating multiple upstream and downstream operations involving mixing, into a single step process. This would result in the usage of a single mixture and will help companies reduce their processing time and also their operational costs. This market research analysis considers this optimization through the one-pot process to be one of the primary growth factors for the industrial blender market. It helps in reducing the energy consumed, generates faster output, better clean in place opportunity, and also cuts down the process cycle to a certain extent. Preparation of pre-polymer, preparation of epoxy, and the preparation of medical gels are some of the key manufacturing sectors that have already combined their multi-phase operations into one.

The operational load and speed of industrial mixers are fixed. This lowers their efficiency and also leads to material loss when the mixer is subjected to variable loads and speeds. Moreover, it also results in the increased maintenance and replacement costs of industrial mixing equipment. The integration of variable frequency drive (VFD) allows the mixer to meet the unpredictable load and frequency changes. It also regulates the thrust to achieve the variation in loads, offers high energy efficiency, and also prevents shaft failure.

Global outlook of the dual fuel engine market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global dual fuel engine market will grow steadily during the predicted period and post a CAGR of more than 6% by 2020. Diesel emissions have a negative impact on the environment. Combustion of diesel results in the emission of primary pollutants such as NOx, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and particulate matter. This has led to the introduction of several changes in the diesel emission regulations which compels diesel engine manufacturers to implement new technologies such as dual fuel injection to ensure that their products have high performance level while meeting the stringent emission norms. Stringent government regulations, such as those imposed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or the EU, requires engine manufacturers to embrace the strict legislations of Tier IV when operating in the US and Stage III and IV standards when operating in Europe. The introduction of these regulations that demand the reduction of pollutants especially NOx, will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years.

The use of Ammonia gas as a substitute for natural gas in dual fuel engines will lead to a significant reduction in CO₂, NOx, and PM (particulate matter) emission levels. Several research organizations have already started focusing on studying the effective use of ammonia in dual fuel engine systems due to the significant feature that it possesses, which is a high level of resistance to pre-ignition. It has also been observed that engines using ammonia as a fuel source have enhanced power output compared to gasoline or diesel engines and
