Increasing Focus on Water Reuse to Propel the Demand for Rupture Discs through 2020, says Technavio

Renewable energy


The global rupture disc market was valued at around $292 million in 2015 and is expected to surpass $319 million by 2020, says Technavio.

Technavio has announced its latest market research report on rupture disc market to its engineering tools portfolio. This market analysis discusses the major drivers and key emerging trends that will influence the growth of the global rupture disc market during the forecast period 2016-2020. Some of the top vendors listed in this industry analysis include BS&B Safety Systems, Continental Disc, Fike, Halma, and Pentair.

In terms of geographical analysis, EMEA accounted for the largest share of the global market, reaching revenues of almost $116 million by 2020. China will emerge as the key revenue-generator in the region.

 “Miniaturization as a trend is catching up with the global market for rupture disks. Manufacturers in the market are reducing the size of rupture discs to sizes as small as 1/8-inch. They are also re-engineering their products to cope with the design and raw material challenges necessitated by the trend. One such design has been developed by BS&B Safety Systems, a major rupture disc manufacturer, by combining the characteristics of reverse-buckling and forward-bulging that are pre-collapsed into a hybrid shape,” says Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for engineering tools.

The new industry research report from Technavio analyzes some of the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Growing demand for fast-acting relief devices

The demand for fast-acting relief devices is high across the globe. Some process systems require  pressure relief devices that act instantly with the increase in system pressure. Rupture discs have a faster reaction time as opposed to pressure relief valves. As a result, many industries prefer the use of rapture discs in heat exchanges instead of conventional pressure relief valves.

Expansion of China’s nuclear power sector

The nuclear power industry in China is anticipated to undergo rapid growth to add a nuclear capacity of at least 58 GWe over the next four years. By 2030, the nuclear capacity is expected to reach at least 150 GWe. It is expected to reach 5,500 kWh by 2030 and about 8,500 kWh by 2050. Coal is the primary source of energy. However, the location of China’s coal reserves in the northern and northwestern regions creates severe logistic problems. For instance, nearly half of China’s rail system is used to transport coal.

Rupture discs are widely used in nuclear power plants. Therefore, the projected increase in the capacity expansion of nuclear power stations in China is expected to propel the demand for rupture discs.

Growing importance of water and wastewater treatment industry

Rapid urbanization and growing population are adding to the rising concerns about depleting freshwater resources across the globe. The majority of the developed economies lack adequate distribution facilities even though they have well-established water treatment infrastructure. This results in the contamination of water during transit. Various European countries that already have technologically advanced industrial water treatment infrastructure are now focusing on municipal water treatment infrastructure. Several countries in APAC are also increasing their investments in developing industrial and municipal water treatment infrastructure in an attempt to prevent river contamination and to promote water reuse. Surging investments in the water and wastewater treatment industry is propelling the demand for rupture discs in the global market.

Some of the other prominent vendors identified in this report are Donadon SDD, GRUPA WOLFF, LESER, Mersen, Parker Hannifin, REMBE, SGL, Shanghai Hua Li Safety Device, STRIKO Verfahrenstechnik, TECHNETICS, V-TEX Corporation, and ZOOK Enterprises.
