Demand for heat exchangers is anticipated to grow, owing to numerous factors such as increase in the number of food industries, rise in demand for energy.

The India heat exchangers market was valued at $454.4 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $890 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 8.6 percent from 2019 to 2026. Various types of heat exchangers have been developed for a wide range of applications such as steam power plants, chemical processing plants, transportation power systems, and others. 

The demand for heat exchangers is anticipated to grow, owing to numerous factors such as increase in the number of food industries, rise in demand for energy, surge in the number of chemical industries, and others. Furthermore, there is a significant increase in CO2 emissions because of energy generation from coal. Due to which the government of India has aimed to reduce its dependence on coal and move toward sustainable solution generation of energy from nuclear power. Generation of the energy from nuclear power increases the adoption of heat exchangers. However, the rise in fouling problems has increased the maintenance cost for end user industries, which is anticipated to hinder the market growth. On the contrary, the automobile industry is growing at a considerable pace, which is anticipated to create lucrative growth opportunities during the forecast period. Aluminium-based heat exchangers are mainly used in automotive applications as it offers advantages such as light weight, excellent corrosion resistance, high thermal conductivity, and others. 

The India heat exchangers market is segmented based on type, material of construction, and end-user industry. Based on type, the market is divided into shell and tube, plate and frame, air-cooled, microchannel, and others. On the basis of material of construction, it is studied across carbon steel, stainless steel, nickel, and others. Based on the end-user industry, it is categorised into chemical, petrochemical, oil & gas, HVACR, food & beverage, power generation, and others. The India heat exchangers market share has been analysed across all segments. The India heat exchangers market analysis covers in-depth information of major industry participants. Some of the major players in the market include Alfa Laval, Danfoss, Heatex Industries Limited, HRS Process Systems Ltd., Kelvion Holding GmbH, KGC Engineering Projects Pvt. Ltd., REX Heat Exchanger (REX), Radiant Heat Exchanger Pvt. Ltd., Tranter, and Universal Heat Exchangers Limited. 

Other players in the value chain of the heat exchangers market include BGR Energy Systems Limited, Flowtex Engineers, Abacus Heat Transfer Limited, JC Equipments Pvt. Ltd., KGC Engineering Projects Private Ltd, Kinam Engineering Industries, Comp Air Treatment System Pvt Ltd., Modern Heat Exchangers, and others. 

Key players are adopting numerous strategies such as product launch, acquisition, collaboration, partnership, product development, agreement business expansion and others, to stay competitive in the heat exchangers market. For instance, Kelvion launched a new exhaust gas heat exchanger and EcoMi modular economiser. Exhaust gas heat exchanger transfers heat produced by exhaust gases from combustion engines to a liquid. Both products launched are used in waste to energy plants. The company has extended their product portfolio to meet the growing demand from heat exchangers across the various geographies such as Asia-Pacific, Europe, and others. 

Market by type 

Based on type, the shell & tube segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate as well as gain a dominating share. Shell and tube heat exchangers are the backbone of many industries in India, as these can be used in extreme operating conditions such as high or low temperature, high pressure, and others. There is a significant increase in the adoption of shell and tube heat exchangers from fertiliser manufacturers. Some of the factors that hinder the growth of shell and tube are its cleaning and maintenance since a tube cooler requires more clearance and requires more space as compared to plate and frame heat exchangers. 

Market by end-user industry 

On the basis of the end-user industry, the chemical industry is expected to gain the highest market share. The chemical industry is growing at a noteworthy pace in India, owing to the rise in consumption of specialty chemicals. In addition, the oil & gas industry is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate because of the significant rise in consumption of oil which has resulted in an increase in investment in oil & gas projects. This factor is anticipated to boost adoption of the heat exchangers in the chemical and oil & gas industries. Where heat exchangers play a vital role in both the industries by recovering waste energy as well as performing numerous applications such as cooling, condensing, heating, and others. 

On the basis of the material of construction, the stainless steel segment is anticipated to garner the highest market share. Stainless steel is an ideal choice for the construction of heat exchangers owing to its characteristics such as durability, resistance to corrosion, cost effectiveness, good heat transfer performance, and others.
