A centrifuge is a scientific equipment used to separate fluids, gases, or liquids depending on their density. The separation is achieved by rapidly spinning a container containing the substances. The subsequent forces lead the heavy components to fall to the bottom of the container. Sedimentation is the process by which particles suspended in water fall out of the dispersion through the action of gravity.

An industrial centrifuge is intended to satisfy the demands of numerous applications by utilizing extreme centrifugal force created by mass rotation. It is usually used in large-scale fluid separation applications. The industrial centrifuge rotates quickly with many revolutions per minute (rpm). This rotation generates an inner centripetal force and an outward relative centrifugal force.

A centrifuge operates on the concept of sedimentation, which is driven by gravitational and centrifugal forces to separate things depending on their densities. Separation techniques used in a centrifuge include isopycnic techniques, pelleting techniques, density gradient techniques, phase separation techniques, and ultrafiltration procedures.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted economic disparities in the global demand in the crisis of global interdependence and governance challenges. Pandemics are isolated concerns for businesses and prospects for emerging patterns and vulnerabilities. Strict measures are required for monitoring the pandemic, which affected businesses and caused unanticipated short and long-term effects. Consequently, pandemics are problems for individual market and an enhancement of existing dynamics and limitations. In the long-term, COVID-19 serves as an opportunity for manufacturers to reconsider their commitment to the supply chain in regions prone to outbreaks and to reconfigure themselves regionally. In the present scenario, COVID-19 is hampering the production process of several manufacturing industries and businesses. Moreover, trade barriers are further reducing the demand-supply of various products and services. However, reduction in outdoor activities and social distancing has created lucrative opportunities for the market.

Key Takeaways from the Study

  • Key market players include ALFA LAVAL, ANDRITZ, Flottweg SE, GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft, HAUS Centrifuge Technologies, Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha, Ltd., MSE Hiller, Multotec, The Weir Group PLC , Thomas Broadbent & Sons Ltd.
  • On the basis of type, the decanter centrifuge held maximum market share in 2021 and is expected to hold a substantial market share in 2030, as decanter centrifuges have wide applications in different industries. A decanter centrifuge handles high feed concentration (up to 65%), dewaters effectively, and deals with large particles.
  • Based on Design, the vertical segment held a substantial market share in 2021 and is expected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Vertical centrifuges occupy a small surface area and are a good solution for installations with limited floor space. They handle solid loads of up to 0.5% for solid bowl centrifuges.
  • Based on Operation Mode, the batch segment is anticipated to hold a maximum market share in 2030. The lower cost of batch centrifuges compared to continuous mode machines make them more accessible for small operations or low production volume.
  • In terms of end-use industry, the water and wastewater treatment segment held maximum share of the market in 2021 and is expected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Local governments focus on water conservation, especially on advanced wastewater treatment, as the amount of sewage sludge is increasing. Decanter centrifuges are widely used for sludge thickening and sludge dewatering, which is driving the segment. Flush booths constantly face sludge collection problems, especially as production increases. Therefore, sedimentation Centrifuge sludge recovery systems facilitate separation while significantly reducing labor costs, water usage, and chemical usage. Increasing global demand for water treatment equipment is likely to create lucrative opportunities for industrial centrifuges during the forecast period.  
  • In terms of regions, the global Sedimentation Centrifuge market is split into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific accounted for maximum market share in 2021. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to develop at a rapid rate during the forecast period, due to the high growth of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology processing industry in the region. Emerging economies such as India are focusing on increasing wastewater management. Centrifuges are used to clean water by removing unwanted particles. Moreover, in terms of API manufacturing, China and India are growing at a rapid pace, which increases their requirement for sedimentation centrifuge. Furthermore, wastewater treatment plants are also increasing in the region, as the demand for clean water increases.
