Heat exchangers are stacked brazed plates that are often corrugated to increase surface area and heat transfer. The efficient counterflow design of brazed plate heat exchangers allows 90% of the material for heat transmission. The heat exchangers can be up to 80% to 90% smaller than traditional shell-and-tube designs. Therefore, the market is thriving due to the advantages of brazed plate heat exchangers, such as their small footprint, low maintenance cost, and cost-efficiency.

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers Market Dynamics and Trends

High efficiency with lower life-cycle costs drives the market of brazed plate heat exchangers over conventional plate heat exchangers. However, the demountable nature of brazed plate heat exchangers will likely restrain the market.

High efficiency with lower life-cycle costs drive the market of brazed plate heat exchangers over conventional plate heat exchangers

One of the most typical issues with conventional plate heat exchangers is an erratic supply of all parallel channels. The fluid spreads more in the initial channels than the last to balance the pressure drop. Furthermore, as the number of plates increases, even distribution decreases, resulting in a drop in the exchanger's total performance.

On the other hand, brazed plate heat exchangers are one of the most efficient heat transmission methods. They are intended to give an unrivaled performance at the lowest possible life-cycle cost. Furthermore, because the plates are furnace brazed at 1100°C, these heat exchangers lack headers, tie bars, and sealing gaskets. As a result, the brazed plate heat exchangers are more compact, lighter, and less bulky than ones with gaskets.

Therefore, brazed plate heat exchangers are now widely utilized due to their advantages, such as their small footprint, low maintenance cost, and cost-efficiency over many industries, including HVAC, heavy industries, and power generation.

The demountable nature of brazed plate heat exchangers is likely to restraint the market

The fundamental disadvantage of brazed plate heat exchangers is that they are not removable or demountable, making maintenance and cleaning impossible or difficult. There is no flexibility because the number of plates cannot be changed. Furthermore, pressure loss is another problem while utilizing the brazed plate heat exchangers. To accomplish the desired tiny pressure drop, one must simultaneously use numerous brazed plate heat exchangers, which raises the volume and, consequently, the overall expense.

COVID-19 Impact on Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers Market Growth

HVAC is one of the significant industries that uses brazed plate heat exchangers. The pandemic wreaked havoc on practically every industry, including HVAC. According to data from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), the beginning of the year saw the most difficulties for nonresidential development. The pandemic caused a 4.8% drop in the GDP of the U.S. in the first quarter of 2020 alone.

However, the HVAC industry's future appears bright as demand continues to soar and the economy emerges from the depths of the recession. The increased ubiquity of the vaccine and decreased uncertainty surrounding HVAC projects will help businesses prosper after a particularly difficult year.

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers Market Segment and Shares Analysis

Based on material, the global brazed plate heat exchangers market is segmented into copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and others.

Copper is the most thermally conductive common metal. The metal boasts a thermal conductivity of pure copper 386.00 W/(mK) at 20°C, which, combined with its relatively low specific heat of roughly 0.385 J/g°C, accounts for its prominence in heat exchangers. As a result, copper-brazed plate heat exchangers offer efficient heat transfer while maintaining a modest footprint. The brazed plate heat exchangers require no maintenance, have a long service life, and resist high temperatures and exceptionally high design pressures. In addition, heat exchangers are utilized for various cooling, heating, evaporation, and condensing tasks.

However, copper has less flexibility than aluminum, making it more difficult to mold into certain shapes. As a result, designers working on a plate-fin exchanger, a form of heat exchanger that combines plates and finned chambers to transfer heat between fluids, may discover that aluminum is a superior fit for the fins.

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers Market Geographical Analysis

Based on geography, the global brazed plate heat exchangers market is segmented into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

Europe is projected to have a significant market share due to rising HVAC and industrial sectors that use heat exchangers in water treatment, power generation, and other applications. Germany, Italy, and France are expected to impact the global brazed plate heat exchangers market.
