Global Side Entry Agitator Market: Dynamics

Rising demand for heavy duty side entry agitators to drive the overall side entry agitator market

Heavy duty side entry agitators in recent years have gained significant traction, particularly in the petrochemical industry owing to its robust design that provides low energy losses, and low capital cost. Moreover, rising demand for more powerful and efficient machines is expected to drive the demand for heavy duty side entry agitators, subsequently contributing to the global side entry agitator market. SPX Flow, Mixer Direct, and JONGIA are some of the heavy duty side entry agitator manufacturers that have registered noteworthy demand growth in the past few years.  

Growth in food & beverages industry

Substantial growth in the food & beverages industry worldwide is projected to boost the demand for side entry agitators.
