Overview of the fruit and vegetable processing equipment market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global fruit and vegetable processing equipment market will witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of close to 5% over the forecast period. The augmented demand for frozen fruits and vegetables is one of the major factors driving this market’s growth. The limited availability of time for cooking in this fast-paced world is driving consumers to buy frozen vegetables. Several countries around the world are involved in the production of fresh fruits and vegetables, which are then distributed to other countries to meet consumer demands. Moreover, owing to changing eating habits, the demand for processed fruit and vegetables has considerably increased. The growing number of working men and women prefer to use food products that consume less preparation time, which will indirectly impact the growth of the fruit and vegetable processing equipment market in the coming years.

One of the recent trends gaining traction in the market is the rising demand for organic fruits and vegetables in Europe. Organic fruits and vegetables have moved from being a niche segment to being a mainstream one. The demand for organic products has increased along with the growing awareness about their health benefits owing to the non-use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides by their manufacturers. Most major retailers in Europe now stock organic fruits and vegetables, which will contribute to this market’s growth until the end of 2021.

Overview of the global HVAC air ducts market

The global HVAC air ducts market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. The growing awareness of energy conservation will drive the growth prospects for the global HVAC air ducts market until the end of 2021. Also, with the growing need for energy conservation, the demand for HVAC air ducts is rising as it serves as a thermal barrier between the outdoor ambient temperature and the indoor control temperature of the building. As a result, government agencies and building owners across the globe are increasingly adopting advanced HVAC air ducts to optimize energy consumption. It has also been observed that insulated air ducts have the potential to save more than twelve folds of the energy needed to produce these products. Furthermore, manufacturers are increasingly coming up with advanced insulated products like fiberglass duct board and flexible ducts because they require low capital and are mold resistant at the time of their production and installation.

The increasing spending in green construction will drive the growth prospects for the global HVAC air ducts market during the forecasted period. As a result, the demand for HVAC air ducts as an energy-efficient solution is increasing with the growing benefits such as increased efficiency, healthy and productive environment, financial benefits, and reduced impact on the surroundings.

Overview of the global industrial boiler market

The global industrial boiler market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. The development of ultra-mega power projects in emerging economies will drive the growth prospects for the global industrial boiler market until the end of 2021. Regulations imposed by the major environmental regulatory bodies such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency encourages various industries especially in the power generation sector to check on emission levels. As a result, the power sector in these countries is increasingly taking strict measures to save energy and reduce harmful emissions. This will boost the number of ultra-mega power projects in various countries, in turn, fuelling the demand for industrial boiler systems.

The need to improve the combustion efficiency of biomass using new materials will drive the growth prospects for the global industrial boiler market during the forecasted period. The use of new materials in biomass beds not only increases the efficiency of the waste but also reduces the cost of biomass boilers. Also, the distribution of oxygen in the boiler bed will enhance the efficiency and uniformity of combustion, which will widen the dependence of various economies on industrial boilers.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global industrial boiler market is highly competitive and diversified due to the presence of a large number of regional and international industrial boiler manufacturers across the globe. These vendors increasingly focus on providing customer requirements such as safety, ease of

Overview of the global pressure regulator market for upstream applications

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global pressure regulator market for upstream applications will grow steadily during the next four years and post a revenue of more than USD 417 million by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the rise in number of multinational joint development agreements as one of the primary growth factors for the pressure regulating valves market. With varying degrees of geographical proximities between crude oil reserve base and downstream consumer markets, there is a constant demand for pipeline transportation to facilitate the monetization of resources. With increased investments towards the identification and development of new oil fields, the demand for multinational crude oil pipelines will further increase in the coming years. This will result in a significant increase in collaboration between global economic powers resulting in a number of joint-development pacts for the planning and implementation of oil and gas pipelines, in turn, fueling the demand for pressure regulator valves.

One of the major factors that will gain traction in the pressure regulator market is the adoption of heated pipeline technology. The transportation of heavy crude through pipelines is one of the major challenges faced by crude oil pipeline operators. This will result in the rise in adoption of heated pipeline technology that will help pipeline operators overcome challenges in the shift of upstream oil and gas sector into hostile environments, low surrounding temperature, and heavier products.
