Mechanical steam trap segment to hold the largest size of the steam trap market during the forecast period.

The mechanical steam trap segment is expected to account for the largest size of the steam trap industry throughout the forecast period. Mechanical steam traps detect the contrast in weight between water and steam. Their continuous discharge of significant amounts of water makes them highly suitable for various tasks. They are particularly valuable for applications where releasing water at the steam's temperature is needed, such as in heat exchangers, coils, and situations requiring a constant steam supply. Furthermore, mechanical steam traps are renowned for their robust and reliable design, which leads to lower maintenance requirements and extended operational lifetimes. This durability appeals to industries seeking long-term solutions that reduce downtime and overall costs.

Steam trap market for tracing applications is expected to grow faster during the forecast period.

The steam trap market for tracing applications is expected to grow faster during the forecast period. Tracing applications involve maintaining a consistent temperature along pipelines, which is essential in oil and gas, chemicals, and food production. Steam traps play a crucial role in these applications by effectively controlling the steam flow to maintain the desired temperature, preventing overheating or underheating of the traced lines. Moreover, expanding industries such as food and beverage, where temperature-sensitive processes are crucial for maintaining product quality, contribute to the growth of steam traps in tracing applications. Steam traps enable precise control of temperatures during cooking, pasteurization, and sterilization, ensuring consistent product quality and safety.
