    Metal bellows are a type of flexible seal used in pipe joints. These bellows help in mitigating movement caused by thermal fluctuation, equipment movement, and vibration or pressure pulsation by converting movement into linear or rotational motion in any piping system. They also reduce the chances of leakage of any fluid or pressure in pipe joints. The performance of the bellows depends on several factors including the type of raw material used and its properties, design factor, manufacturing process, etc. Metal bellows are used in diverse applications ranging from aerospace and defense to pharmaceutical, industrial automation, semiconductor manufacturing, solar power generation, water and wastewater treatment plants, and oil and gas industries.

    COVID-19 Impact

    In the year 2020, the sudden outburst of the pandemic led to a big dent in the growth trajectory of the metal bellows market. Metal bellows demand witnessed a colossal decline (-28%+ in 2020) amid the pandemic. However, the market started recovering from the disruption brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in the year 2021 and registered a healthy growth of 14.3%.

    Revival of aerospace, defense, and automotive industries, the two largest markets for metal bellows from disruption brought by COVID-19, is likely to drive market growth in the years to come.
