Turbo Blower Market – Dynamics
Rise in demand for turbo blowers from wastewater treatment plants across the U.S.
Water pollution is a major concern across the world. Wastewater or effluents that are discharged from industries must be processed in a wastewater treatment plant before they are diverted to rivers and seas. According to California Water Environment Association (CWEA), process air or turbo blower consumes the highest energy – 55.0% in a typical wastewater treatment plant. In the U.S. with rise in the number of wastewater treatment plants, a number of manufacturers are such as APG-Neuros, Siemens AG, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik GmbH, Hoffman & Lamson (part of Gardner Denver, Inc.), HSI, and Atlas Copco are entering the market.
Rise in demand for turbo blowers from oil & gas and petrochemical industry across the Middle East
Across the world, increase in production from oil & gas and petrochemical industry is driving the demand for turbo blowers. Increase in oil production across GCC countries such as Bahrain, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait are increasing the demand for turbo blowers across the Middle East and African countries.
