A fluid dispensing equipment dispenses and monitors liquids or gaseous fluids. These equipment are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and complexities ranging from simple manual systems to sophisticated, automated robotic systems. Fluids are dispensed for several applications including bonding, filling, lubricating, and sealing. Fluids dispensed can range from fluids with Newtonian viscosity to fluids with high viscosity. Dispensing can be done in a single deposit, in batches, or in some cases, through continuous operations. Some of the key end-user industries of fluid dispensing equipment are medical, automotive, electronics, and food & beverages. Increasing number of regulations and stringent standards have made the need for precision and accuracy of fuel dispensing equipment highly crucial. In response to this, manufacturers of fluid dispensing equipment are adapting their products to meet the new standards. Manufacturers are paying greater attention to production with low carbon emissions, low energy consumption, decreased use of volatile solvents, and low production of waste.
Generally, fluids can be dispensed in two ways: contact dispensing, wherein a dispensing tip is used for dispensing fluids, and noncontact dispensing, wherein fluids are usually jetted. Fluids need to be dispensed in an accurate, measured, repeatable, and steady manner at all times, which directly indicates the quality of a fluid dispensing system. The fluid dispensing equipment is selected depending on the specific application. Some of the commonly used fluid dispensing equipment are manual syringe systems, spool valves, time/pressure dispensing (TPD), pinch tube valves, diaphragm valves, needle valves, time/pressure syringe systems, and rotary auger valves. While selecting a fluid dispensing system, nature of the dispensing material, flow properties, chemical reactivity, distance from the substrate, and angle of dispensing need to be considered.
Utilization of more automated fluid dispensing systems is expected be on upswing all over the world in the last few years, due to strict regulations about manufacturing and increasing awareness regarding material wastage. The speedily expanding medical industry in the U.S. is anticipated to drive the fluid dispensing equipment market in North America. The fluid dispensing equipment market in Asia Pacific is likely to expand at a rapid pace, owing to speedy economic growth and rapid industrialization in several countries in this region. China and India are anticipated to be prime markets for fluid dispensing equipment in Asia Pacific, with the adoption rate of automated fluid dispensing systems rising rapidly. Rise in per capita income in these countries is likely to boost the market for fluid dispensing equipment used in the food & beverage industry. The fluid dispensing equipment market in Europe is likely to expand at a sluggish pace, due to high manufacturing and labor costs in the region. In Latin America, Brazil and Mexico are anticipated to be major producers of fluid dispensing equipment in line with the trend of increase in manufacturing activities in this region. In Middle East & Africa, demand for fluid dispensing equipment is likely to be high in South Africa and Saudi Arabia. Semi-automated and automated robotic systems with high repeatability rate, high precision, and low probability of contamination are likely to be increasingly used in fluid dispensing equipment.
Key players operating in the fluid dispensing equipment market are Nordson Asymtek, Electron Fusion Devices Inc., Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, Graco Inc., GPD Global, Fisnar Inc., OK International Inc., Precision Valve & Automation, and Techcon Systems.
