Heat Exchanger Market

The Global Heat Exchanger Market Is Estimated To Be Flourished By Growth In Chemicals Industry

A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or chemical reaction. There are several types of heat exchangers, including shell and tube, plate, cooling towers, air cooled, and reformed heat exchangers. Heat exchangers are used in various industries such as chemicals, petrochemicals, oil & gas, HVAC, power plants, food & beverages, and others. The global Heat Exchanger Market is used extensively across various end-use industries, especially in the chemicals industry where heat exchangers are used in processes like chemical production, distillation, and heat treatment.

The global Heat Exchanger Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 18849.18 Mn  in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 1.2%  over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics

Growth in the chemicals industry is a major driver for the global Heat Exchanger Market.
