An industrial burner utilizes liquid or gaseous fuel to produced flames in a controlled way. Its productivity depends upon the mixing of fuel and air, which directly has an impact on the stability of flame. The industrial burner plays a crucial role in a number of functions including combustion control, distribution of fuel and air, and preparation of fuel. It is used in various end-use industry verticals such as sectors including automotive, food processing, glass and ceramics, petrochemicals, mining & metal, and chemical.
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.
Advent of burner management system to offer augmented safety for traditional burners is expected to boost growth of the global industrial burner market during the forecast period.
Burner management systems (BMS) provide enhanced safety by ensuring an orderly and safe start-up and shutdown of traditional burners. BMS deployment has consequently reduced the operational errors associated with traditional burners by following a sequential and safe operating procedure. Moreover, burner management system is being used in conventional burners to overcome safety and other downsides associated with them. Thus, these factors are expected to propel the global industrial burner market growth over the forecast period.
Emergence of smart burners with wireless technologies is expected to present lucrative growth opportunities
Smart industrial burners can monitory key burning operating conditions that ideally requires the presence of an operator. Smart burners in the manufacturing sector possess the characteristics to maintain and optimize burner performance, enhance overall performance, and improve the protection of their process in industrial operation. For instance, in October 2016, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. launched the ‘Cleanfire HRe’ burner, a smart burner that would largely witness installation in the glass industry. The burner utilizes sensors that persistently monitor key burner operating conditions.
Major difficulties in retrofitting procedure of industrial burners are expected to hinder the global industrial burner market growth over the forecast period
Industrial burner installation is a complex procedure, which requires skilled workers, in order to ensure the adequate functioning of the equipment. Proper retrofitting of burners is necessary, which demands qualified contractors to verify the equipment status post-retrofitting procedure. Moreover, it also requires validation of all safety equipment in all possible failure modes and the authentication of the correct calibration and set-points of all mechanism and safety devices, whether they were initially a part of the project or not. This retrofitting procedure further needs to comply with National Fire Protection Association, FM, and GAP (IRI) code compliance to ensure safe industrial burner operating conditions. Therefore, these factors expected to hinder the global industrial burner market growth in the near future.
In South America, industrial burners are expected to witness strong demand, owing to growing energy sector in Brazil. This is majorly supported by the huge offshore oil & gas discoveries in the region, which are currently responsible for placing Brazil among the world’s top oil & gas provinces.
In the Asia Pacific region, the demand for industrial burners is driven by several commercial and industrial end-user segments, especially in China and Southeast Asia. However, the market is often inhibited by the lack of technology due to the strong presence of local manufacturers.
In the industrial burners market, the MEA region presently holds huge potential because of the increasing demand for huge industrialization and power in various developed countries, such as Saudi Arabia.
