    Plate heat exchangers consist of a series of parallel plates that are placed one above the other to allow the formation of a series of channels for fluids to flow between them. Generally, these plates are corrugated to increase the turbulence, the hot fluid flows in one direction in alternating chambers while the cold fluid flows in true counter-current flow in the other alternating chamber. Depending upon the design and number of plates they are classified as gasket plate, all-welded plate, and brazed plate heat exchangers.

    The demand for plate heat exchangers is highly subjected to the organic growth of various end-use industries, such as petrochemical & chemical, power generation, oil & gas, HVAC & refrigeration. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the demand for plate heat exchangers varies from industry to industry. For instance, oil & gas emerged to be the biggest victims with demand falling by -16.6% in 2020. The pharmaceutical industry, on the other hand, witnessed a healthy growth of 3.2% in 2020. Worldwide lockdowns and production halts of petrochemical & chemical, oil & gas, and nuclear power production plants impacted the demand for plate heat exchangers.

    In 2021, the market experienced a rebound at an excellent rate, driven by the combined effects of recovery in major industries, such as oil & gas, petrochemical & chemical, and power generation due to the diversification and restoration of the supply chain of the major manufacturers.

    Some Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions:

    • In 2021, Exchanger Industries Limited (“EIL”), one of the leading Canadian designers and manufacturers of heat transfer products acquired the HRS heat exchanger Ltd. The HRS heat exchanger Ltd. offers plate heat exchangers, corrugated tube heat exchangers, and scraped surface heat exchangers.

    • In 2021, Enrequip acquired American Heating Company and expanded its heat exchangers product line. Enrequip’s updated product portfolio includes a variety of sanitary and industrial heating and cooling solutions, from shell and tube heat exchangers to industrial thermal fluid heaters and tank heating coils.
