The pressure vessel market is expected to reach USD 184.87 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.38% from 2016 to 2021. Pressure vessel is a container used to contain fluids and gases at pressure levels greater than that of atmospheric pressure. It is one of the key equipment majorly used in power generation and the chemicals industry. Factors such as rapid growth in the Middle East chemical industry, changing trends in the energy sector, and growing power generation capacity have led to increasing deployment of pressure vessels. Modernization of existing power infrastructure and rapid urbanization in developing economies has increased the usage of pressure vessels. These are the major reasons behind the growth of the pressure vessel market.

Power generation capacity addition and change in energy trends are the reasons behind the boost in its demand. In addition, end-user industries are deploying pressure vessels for power generation and processing raw materials to produce the final product, primarily in the chemicals & petrochemicals industry.
