Market Insight- Global Industrial Burner Market
An industrial burner is mechanical equipment that uses liquid or gas fuel, in order to produce flames in a contained manner. The productivity of the burner relies on the mixing rate of fuel and air, which impacts flame stability. An industrial burner is a critical component required for effective combustion. An industrial burner performs many crucial functions including fuel preparation, combustion control, distribution of air and fuel, etc. It finds applications in various sectors including automotive, food processing, glass and ceramics, petrochemicals, mining & metal, chemical, etc.
The global Industrial Burner Market was accounted for US$ 22,066.7 Mn in terms of value and 63.4 Million units in terms of volume in 2019 and is expected to grow at CAGR of 3.04% for the period 2019-2027.
- Strict regulatory policies regarding the fabrication of industrial burners are expected to drive growth of the global industrial burner market during the forecast period
Industrial gas burners are used in numerous industries such as automotive, oil & gas, aerospace, and food processing. These burners are subjected to different levels of temperature ranges associated with the nature of production processes. These parameters are extremely crucial in fabrication standards for dynamic industry verticals. The implementation of stringent regulatory standards for industrial gas burners would lead to the production of more and more efficient burners equipped with an appropriate monitoring system. For instance, in the U.S., the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors the air emission standards of the industrial burners, their operation conditions, and associated constituents by means of regulations such as the ‘Major Source (Boiler MACT) Rule’ and ‘Area Source Rule’ published in the March 21, 2011 circular. Thus, these factors are expected to drive growth of the global industrial burner market during the forecast period.
- Availability of burner management systems to provide improved safety for conventional burners is expected to propel growth of the global industrial burner market over the forecast period
Growing safety concerns about industrial processes and setting up of global industrial safety standard adoption protocols have subsequently resulted in surging acceptance of burner management systems. Bruner management system (BSM) provides improve safety by ensuring an orderly and safe start-up and shutdown of a traditional burner. Moreover, it reduces operational errors related to traditional burners by following a sequential and safe operating procedure. BMS also provides higher uptime and ensures governing compliance and also improves personal safety by removing the need to access old relay boxed situated in high-temperature areas of the boiler. Hence, these factors are expected to propel the global industrial burner market growth over the forecast period.
North America region dominated the global Industrial Burner Market in 2019, accounting for 32.5% share in terms of value, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.

Major challenges involved in retrofitting procedure of industrial burners are expected to hamper the global industrial burner market growth over the forecast period
Industrial burners require timely maintenance and replacement operations, in order to ensure reduced machine downtime, increased production, reduced fuel costs, and to deliver improved safety, and endow increased equipment life. Industrial burner equipment installation requires complex procedure and skilled personnel to ensure incessant functioning of current equipment and safety systems. Moreover, all the retrofitting schemes require a contractor to validate the functionality of all safety equipment in all possible failure modes. The authentication of the correct calibration and set-points of all mechanisms and safety devices, whether they were initially a part of the project or not. Thus, these factors are expected to hamper the market growth in the near future.
- Emergence of smart burners with wireless communications can provide major business opportunities
Technological advancements and constant research and development activities have led to the emergence of smart burners with wireless communications capabilities. Smart burner systems are designed to reduce human errors, which are equipped with sensors to monitor key burner operating conditions, which otherwise would require the presence of an operator. The sensor conveys never-ending monitoring capabilities and access to sensor data along with immediate notification of operating disputes that would hamper productivity.
- Use of 3D printing technology in industrial burner fabrication can offer excellent growth opportunities
Advent 3D printing technology has made many equipment sophisticated and reduced the cost of manufacturing. The innovative 3D printing technology provides industrial burners with optimized combustion of liquid and gaseous fuel. These technology-enabled industrial burners can function on alternating fuel with integral functionality and minimized product size. For instance, Euro-K GmbH, a leading fabricator of energy converting devices, has proposed a technology to fabricate micro-burners to optimize fuel requirements and offer operating flexibility. The micro-burner delivers the choice of fuel, as the burner produces a fuel/air mixture and can burn both gaseous and liquid fuel.
