A static mixer is an industrial equipment used for mixing liquids of various viscosities, gases, slurries, and powders in a homogeneous manner, without any movement of parts inside the equipment. Static mixers are also known as motionless mixers. In a static mixer, two mixing liquids i.e. a major component and an additive are connected to the mixer. These liquids enter the static mixer and get mixed in a homogeneous manner.
Rise in petroleum extraction all over the world is augmenting the market size of the global oil & gas industry. This, in turn, is fueling the demand for static mixers all over the world. Concerns about environmental pollution including water pollution are rising across the world. Governments across the world have formulated strict regulations regarding the treatment of wastewater discharged from industries. Rise in the demand for treatment of wastewater released from industrial plants across the globe is fueling the demand for static mixers. Also, increase in plastic or polymer production across the world is augmenting the demand for static mixers across the globe. As per the World Economic Forum (WEF), over 320 million tons of polymers, excluding fibers, were produced in the world in 2015.
Rise in the production of chemicals, food, and beverages, and paper as well as mining output across the world is raising the demand for static mixers. Static mixers incur low investment costs, low maintenance costs, and low energy consumption. They are eco-friendly and easy to install, as no tank or agitator is required. All these factors are propelling the demand for static mixers in various end-use industries.
Based on product type, the global static mixer market can be segmented into channel mixers, pipe mixers, and gas dispersion systems. Based on material type, the static mixer market can be divided into PVC (polyvinyl chloride) static mixers, stainless steel static mixers, carbon steel static mixers, PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) static mixers, alloy static mixers, and others. In terms of application, the global static mixer market can be classified into oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical, mining, food & beverages, pulp, paper & board, and others.
Channel static mixers are used for mixing fluids of different flow rates. Pipe static mixers are made from carbon steel, stainless steel, or PVC. They are either removable or fixed in nature. Their diameter ranges from 10 centimeters to 300 centimeters. They are suitable for almost all end-use applications. Gas dispersion system type of static mixers are employed for mixing of gas bubbles.
In terms of region, the global static mixer market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America is expected to be a prominent market for static mixers across the world during the forecast period. The U.S. is expected account for a dominant share of the market in North America from 2018 to 2026, followed by Canada. Europe constitutes for a significant share of the global static mixer market. Germany, the U.K., France, Italy, and Spain are major countries of the market in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to be a significant market for static mixers across the world in the near future. China is expected to be the largest static mixer market in Asia Pacific in the next few years. Japan, South Korea, and India are other major markets for static mixers in the region. In Middle East and Africa static mixer market, GCC is projected to account for a major share of the market in the region, followed by South Africa, in the near future. Brazil is likely dominate the static mixer market in South America during the forecast period.
