    What are plate heat exchangers?

    Plate heat exchangers consist of a series of parallel plates that are placed one above the other to form a series of channels through which fluids can flow. In general, these plates are corrugated to increase turbulence; hot fluid flows in one direction in alternating chambers, while cold fluid flows in true counter-current flow in the other. Heat exchangers are classified as gasket plates, all-welded plates, or brazed plates based on the design and number of plates.

    Market Dynamics

    The demand for plate heat exchangers is highly influenced by the organic growth of various end-use industries such as petrochemical & chemical, power generation, oil & gas, and HVAC & refrigeration. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on demand for plate heat exchangers varied according to industry. Oil & gas, for instance, emerged as the most vulnerable industry, with demand falling by more than -15.1% in 2020. The pharmaceutical industry, on the other hand, witnessed a healthy growth of 4.8% in 2020. Lockdowns and production halt at petrochemical & chemical, oil & gas, and nuclear power plants around the world impacted the demand for plate heat exchangers.

    In 2021, the market experienced an excellent rebound, driven by the combined effects of recovery in the economic activity and resumption of manufacturing in different industries such as oil & gas, petrochemical & chemical, and power generation.
