Overview of the gear pump market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global gear pump market will witness steady growth and will post a moderate CAGR of more than 4% over the forecast period. With the rapid proliferation of the construction industry around the world, the market for gear pumps, especially hydraulic gear pumps, is anticipated to have a positive outlook in the coming years. Extensive application of construction equipment in operations such as excavation, earthmoving, and lifting and material handling is expected to drive the market for construction equipment, which will, in turn, boost the growth of the gear pumps market over the next four years.

One of the recent trends gaining traction in the market is the gradual shift to fire-resistant hydraulic fluids in gear pumps. In an attempt to combat the deficiency of energy sources, efforts are being undertaken to switch to liquids that are both reliable and efficient. The high workload on these pumps increases ruptured lines, which significantly enhances the possibility of fire. Such instances of fire in hydraulic gear pumps have led to a rise in demand for improved quality and standards. The increasing use of fire-resistant hydraulic fluids helps in proper lubrication and helps in maintaining corrosion-free hydraulic pumps. The high water content in the fluid increases vaporization of the fluid and this steam helps in smoothening the ruptured lines, which reduces the possibility of fire, thereby leading to their augmented adoption in the coming years.
