The Boiler and Heat Exchanger Manufacturing industry is anticipated to grow modestly over the five years to 2014, as mixed performance in downstream markets has led to lackluster demand for industry products. In addition, globally determined price levels of key inputs, such as steel, influence the selling price of boilers and heat exchangers, thereby impacting industry revenue. In the coming years, the industry is expected to benefit from stronger domestic demand, as US industries shrug off the effects of the recession and increase manufacturing and extraction commercial operations. The industry is also projected to benefit from slowly rising metal prices, including steel prices, which it will pass downstream via higher selling prices.
This industry primarily manufactures boilers and heat exchangers. Boilers are closed vessels where fluid is heated, while heat exchangers allow thermal energy to be transferred between fluids while keeping them separate. Industry products are used in a variety of industrial, energy and commercial markets.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
