Boiler Control Solutions Market: Overview
A boiler or a steam generator is a closed vessel in which fluid, usually water, is heated. A boiler is utilized to heat and produce hot water or steam through the combustion of a fuel or through the action of electrodes or electric resistance elements. Many commercial and industrial facilities use boilers to produce steam or hot water for space heating or for process heating. Boilers require large amounts of energy, and any operation staff involved in a facility’s energy management needs to know how a boiler works for its maintenance or improving minimize breakdown. Furthermore, it is important to know what key parameters of a boiler system are important. Combustion efficiency is a major parameter of interest for fossil fuel-fired boilers. Combustion efficiency is often controlled by providing the optimum amount of combustion air that is mixed with the fuel. Thus, understanding boiler control systems is pivotal. Steam and hot water boilers are available in standard sizes from very small boilers for apartments and residences to large boilers for commercial and industrial use.
Integrating a boiler control system in traditional operational boilers is utilized to maximize boiler’s overall efficiency. Boiler controls eliminate costly on-off cycles and improve turndown ratios, saving operational expenditure and increasing the life of the boiler. Growing need for operational optimization and usage of efficient control solutions is expected to drive the boiler controls solutions market in the next few years. Higher investment costs as compared to that of a traditional boiler setup is a major restraint of the boiler control solutions market.
Boiler Control Solutions Market: Key Segmentation
The global boiler control solutions market can be segmented based on type, application, control solution, component, and region. In terms of type, the boiler control solutions market can be bifurcated into fire-tube boilers and water-tube boilers. Based on application, the boiler control solutions market can be divided into industrial and commercial. In terms of control solution, the market can be segregated into (on/off) cycling controls, high/low fire controls, and modulating controls. Cycling control maintains the temperature of the boiler. It is placed between the thermostat and the gas valve unit. The oil or gas burner cycles on and off to maintain steam pressure or water temperature. High-fire/low-fire burners provide fewer off-cycle losses, as the burner shuts off only when loads are below the low-fire rate of fuel input. Modulating control is used in large boilers as it has the ability to adjust the output to match the load whenever the load is greater than the low-fire limit, which is usually not less than 15% of the full load capacity. In terms of component, the boiler control solutions market can be categorized into hardware, software, and services. Combination of hardware and software is referred as services. Several companies involved in boiler controls offer these optimized services to the end-user industries i.e. a mix of software and hardware solutions.
Boiler Control Solutions Market: Regional Outlook
Based on region, the global boiler control solutions market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Europe and North America dominate the global boiler control solutions market. China holds a major share of the boiler control solution market on Asia Pacific. North America is a mature region of the boiler control solutions market. Therefore, the boiler control solutions market in the region is likely to expand at a low to moderate pace during the forecast period. Growing demand for renewable-based power generation is expected to boost the demand for boiler controls solutions in in Europe, especially in Russia & CIS, Germany, the U.K., and Italy.
