Under the pump: Weak downstream demand has increased pressure on industry revenue

The Pump and Compressor Manufacturing industry is expected to decline over the five years through 2017-18 due to unfavourable demand conditions in some downstream markets. Industry revenue depends on conditions in a variety of markets, including water treatment and supply, mining, agriculture and construction. Falling commodity prices over the majority of the past five-year period have reduced demand from some mining firms as investment in new projects has slowed. However, dry conditions in some years and a growing awareness of global warming have placed a greater focus on water management issues. These factors have caused state governments to invest in water supply and treatment infrastructure, which has limited the decline in demand for industry products...read more.

  • Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

    Firms in the Pump and Compressor Manufacturing industry mainly design and manufacture pumps and pumping systems. Generally, a pump is a device used to move liquids, gases and slurries using a physical or mechanical action. Pumps move fluid either by positive displacement, where a fixed amount of fluid is trapped and then discharged into a pipe, or rotodynamics, where the flow velocity of the liquid is increased by adding kinetic energy that is converted to pressure. Pumps come in many shapes and sizes and are used for a variety of applications. Pumps are commonly rated by horsepower, flow rate, outlet pressure and inlet suction.Centrifugal pumpsCentrifugal pumps are the most common type of pump produced by the industry.
