Frost & Sullivan: Increased Conventional and Unconventional O&G Explorations Drive New Investments in Latin American Positive Displacement Pump Market

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Food Weekly News -- Strong investment in the oil and gas (O&G) and petrochemical industries inLatin America is fueling the demand for positive displacement pumps in the region. The development of the infrastructure and food and beverage manufacturing industries to meet the accommodation and consumption needs of the expanding population, is also adding momentum to the market.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Analysis of the Latin American Positive Displacement Pump Market, finds that the market earned revenues of $464.5 million in 2013 and estimates this to reach $626.7 million in 2020. Although Latin America's gross domestic product is expected to decelerate to an average of three to four percent, the demand for positive displacement pumps will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.4 percent mainly due to new applications in the O&G and petrochemical industries. The study covers rotary, reciprocating and peristaltic pumps.

"With the mining industry in Latin America garnering major interest from state governments and international companies, opportunities for positive displacement pump manufacturers are also emerging in this space," said Frost & Sullivan Industrial Automation & Process Control Research AnalystAida Paola Conti.

However, the price sensitivity of end users and their limited awareness on the advantages of positive displacement pumps and alternative technologies have been major obstacles to market development. In addition, the unstable economic condition in some leading Latin American countries has dampened consumer confidence and led to project delays. Along with the expected decrease in foreign direct investment, these factors are challenging positive displacement pump manufacturers.

"In this scenario, successful brand awareness campaigns are critical to gain market acceptance and differentiate products from the competition," stated Conti. "Training programs on the current and new applications of positive displacement pumps are also important to attract end users acrossLatin America."
