East North Central Region Spearheads Overall Market
In terms of regions, the East North Central region witnessed a surge in the number of industrial boiler installations in 2014. In the same year, the region accounted for 30% of the total market. In the coming few years, this regional market is expected to experience tremendous rise in manufacturing activities and industrial growth. Citing these reasons, the East North Central region will see the highest demand of industrial boilers in the forecast period. The strong presence of metal, chemical, and food companies in Michigan and Illinois will also present ample of growth opportunities to the industrial boilers market in the U.S.
Petroleum Industries in West South Central Region Keep Up the Demand for Industrial Boilers
The next big geographical segment in the U.S. industrial boilers market is the West South Central. As of 2014, this region held 18% share in the total market. Researchers predict that the rise of this regional segment will be due to the growth of fabricated metal and petroleum industries in Oklahoma. Studies also point out that the maximum installed industrial boilers are of 300 BHP capacity due to the presence of primary metals, food processing, and petroleum industries.
South Atlantic Emerges as Third Key Contributor to the Market
The South Atlantic region of the U.S. industrial boiler market was registered as the third largest key contributor to the revenues of the overall market. As of 2014, this region held a share of 15% in the overall market. The burgeoning chemical and paper industries of South Atlantic are expected to drive this market in the coming years.
The industrial boilers market in the U.S. will also be driven by the rising fuel costs that account for about 85% of the total cost of operations of boilers. In wake of exorbitantly rising fuel costs, the preference of end-user industries is likely to shift towards energy and fuel-efficient boilers. The modern boilers are known to bring down emissions of harmful gases such as CO, CO2, VOC, and NOX. The economic recovery of the U.S. and the rising capital investments are also expected to propel this market.
Players take Product Differentiation Seriously to Gain Competitive Advantage
