Global Water Pump Market: Key Opportunities and Threats
Currently, Asia Pacific dominates the global water pump market, trailed by Europe and North America. The infrastructural development witnessed in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific such as India and China has been propelling the market for water pumps in the region.
In terms of product, centrifugal water pumps account for a major share in the market. The segment is expected to exhibit robust growth during the forecast period, as demand from the oil & gas industry and municipalities continues to rise.

Furthermore, with the advent of technologies such as intelligent pump systems, the industry has been able to extend cost benefits to customers. These have emerged as key factors augmenting the global water pump market.
The market is facing cutthroat competition from unorganized players in Asia Pacific, especially those operating in the agricultural sector. Poor farmers living in the region are price sensitive; hence, they prefer spending on indigenous water pumps instead of pumps from global brands. This is a key factor restraining the penetration of international enterprises in the emerging economies.
