India Heat Exchangers Market Outlook - 2026

The India heat exchangers market was valued at $454.4 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $890.0 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 8.6% from 2019 to 2026. Heat exchanger is a device that transfers energy between two process fluids. Various types of heat exchangers have been developed for a wide range of applications such as steam power plant, 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 number of food industries, rise in demand for energy, surge in 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 have 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. Aluminum-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.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs of the leading companies, heat exchangers, especially shell & tube, are widely used across several end-user industries. The shell & tube type segment is anticipated to grow at a noteworthy pace, as they offer superior protection against erosion and exhibit low-pressure drop characteristics. 

Waste heat is generated by fuel combustion in the industries. Many industries such as oil & gas, chemical, and sugar in India are aiming at recovering the waste heat for enhancing the efficiency of the manufacturing process and reducing its dependence on fuel for the generation of energy. Thus, these industries have deployed heat recovery devices, which include heat exchangers, heat pumps, load preheating, passive preheater, and others. Heat exchangers are mostly used to transfer heat from combustion exhaust gases to combustion air entering the furnace.  

As per the CXOs, increase in industrial activities and ongoing trend of setting up refineries & petrochemical plants in India are anticipated to offers lucrative opportunities for key manufacturers.
