Continued Growth Momentum in Oil and Gas and Petrochemical Industries

The successful economic development of Latin American regions is continuing to fuel demand for positive displacement pumps, especially as increasing investment in industrial activity expands product application opportunities. Regional attention to the exploitation of oil and gas resources, as well as the general need for basic chemicals, provides positive displacement pump manufacturers with an attractive market outlook. This research covers 7 industries including oil and gas, chemical, food and beverage, and water and wastewater. The regional breakdown comprises Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. Research was conducted using primary and secondary sources that were validated in order to provide the most accurate data.

Executive Summary
-In 2013, the total positive displacement pumps market in Latin America generated revenue of $ million.
-From 2013 until the end of the forecast period, the market is expected to experience a growth rate of %.
-Increased focus on oil and gas resources across the region is expected to be a main area of private and public investment, especially in Mexico, where large investments are expected.
-The food and beverage and water and wastewater segments will continue increase as demands from growing population put a strain on the current supply.
-Air-operated double-diaphragm, single screw, and peristaltic pump will experience higher demand due to their applications in the oil and gas industries.
-External and internal factors cause overall economic growth to slow down for the region.
-Price pressure and the replacement of aging equipment are likely to help the pump manufactures upgrade their equipment and enhance their processes.

Market Overview—Definitions
Product Definitions: Positive Displacement Pump: This is a device that moves fluid by trapping a fixed amount of the fluid and then displaces that trapped volume into a discharge pipe. For the purpose of revenue calculation, the first point of sale is included, which is revenue generated by the manufacturer. Motors, pump parts, and after-sales services are not variables in revenue calculation. The different types of positive displacement pumps covered in this study are as follows:
-Rotary Pump: This positive displacement pump uses 2 meshed, rotating parts or 1 stator and 1 rotor to force fluid into a smaller space. The rotary pump segment is comprised of:
oGear pumps
oLobe pumps
oProgressive cavity and screw pumps
oVane pumps
-Reciprocating Pump: A reciprocating pump uses a piston driven by a crankshaft or a diaphragm to deliver fluids using high pressure. Reciprocating pumps include piston pumps and diaphragm pumps.
-Peristaltic Pump: The fluid is contained within a flexible tube fitted inside a pump casing. As the pump’s rotor turns, part of its tube is compressed, forcing the fluid to be pumped out of the tube.
Industry Definitions:
Oil and Gas: The oil and gas industry encompasses all companies involved in the exploration, production, and transportation of oil and gas. Upstream, midstream, and downstream processes are included.

Food and Beverages: The food industry consists of all manufacturing plants that transform livestock and agricultural products into products for immediate or final consumption. The industry groups are distinguished by raw materials processed into food products and are generally of animal or vegetable origin. Establishments are included where bakery and candy products are made on the premises for consumption. The beverage industry consists of 3 types of establishments: manufacturers of nonalcoholic beverages, manufacturers of alcoholic beverages through the process of fermentation, and manufacturers that produce distilled alcoholic beverages.
Water and Wastewater: The water and wastewater industry includes all applications involved in the treatment of water and wastewater.

Chemicals: The chemical industry includes companies that manufacture basic chemicals (acids and salts), manufacturing chemicals (pigments and colors), chemical end products (soaps and cosmetics), and specialty end products. Power Generation: The power generation industry includes all forms of power-generating plants, including fossil fuels, wind, hydro, nuclear, and geothermal power plants. Establishments in this industry are likely to operate:

-Generation facilities that produce electric energy
-Transmission systems that convey electricity from generation facilities to distribution systems
-Distribution systems that convey electricity to the final consumer

Pharmaceuticals: The pharmaceuticals industry includes establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing internally and externally used medical devices used mostly for diagnosis or treatment purposes. The industry also includes the manufacturing of medicinal and pharmaceutical products intended for internal and external consumption in forms such as ampoules, tablets, capsules, vials, ointments, powders, solutions, and suspensions.

Mining: The industry is composed of metals, non-metals, and structured metals that are explored.

Other Industry Definitions Include:
-Agriculture: Companies involved in farming make up the agriculture industry.
-Automotive: The automotive industry includes companies that manufacture passenger and commercial vehicles.
