Industrial Furnaces Market: Introduction

Industrial furnaces are the thermal enclosures in which raw materials, both solid state and liquid state, are processed at high temperatures. They attain higher processing temperatures as compared with open-air systems. The industrial furnaces can be designed according to their functions, temperature variance, fuel type and method of combustion. The basic construction of Industrial furnaces consist of radiant section, convection section, radiant coil, burner, flue gas stack and insulation. These furnaces have a basic working principle. The materials in fluid form are heated up to optimum temperature levels in the radiant section where the fuel is burnt using the burner. There may be more than one burner in the arrangement as per the requirement. Next, the fluid in the radiant tubes pass through convection section where the heat exchange takes place and the flue gases are condensed before they are released into the atmosphere through stack or chimney.

Industrial furnaces are available in market in various formats. These are used in numerous industries like glass, ceramic, metal, food processing and many more. The industrial furnaces have everlasting demand as the industries won’t shut down anyway. Metals, glass, cement, refractories, ceramic, plastic and fiber all these industries are booming with the ever growing demand for each and every industry thus mentioned. This shows how much the market needs industrial furnaces each year. The processing of materials however, can be improvised by resolving energy losses and improving the efficiencies by doing some R & D in the field of thermodynamics. The market is demanding for more efficient industrial furnaces.

Industrial Furnaces Market: Market Dynamics

Usage of industrial furnaces is mandate in major industrial sectors for processing various materials, oils, gases and food products. Although there are different versions of them but there is no alternative presented in the market to replace industrial furnaces. Although the life of an industrial furnace is long, there are newer industries being set up every year all over the world. Some are the new entrants while most of the industries being set up are by the old player with an idea to expand their market presence. This sense of competition has brought in better scopes for the industrial furnace industry and can be considered as a new trend in the market. The key driver for this market is the perennial demand for steel and Iron along with other important metals and materials.

With the growing demand for metals across several industries including but not limiting to automobiles, rail roads and metallurgy, more vehicles, ornaments, bridges, buildings and various other things are being manufactured and constructed. This calls for more and more industries to be set up to quench the rising demand which further ensures that there’s a lot of demand for industrial furnaces from businesses all over the world. With the introduction of industry 4.0 and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things), the concept of industrial furnace has changed the whole scenario by opting for better efficiencies and automation.

This boom can be an opportunity for those manufactures who would be the early adopters of this technology. In the hindsight, the restraint for the market lies in the fact that industrial furnaces are considered as one time investments for any plant which have a long life of 10 to 15 years thus having a low product replacement rate. Secondly, most of the countries in the world are well equipped with sufficient industries and fewer no. of manufacturing facilities have been set up in the last decade and is expected to have a prolonged effect in the forecast period thus acting as a deterrent for the industrial furnace market.
