Global Gear Pumps Market: Development History, Current Analysis and Estimated Forecast to 2025

A gear pump uses the meshing of gears to pump fluid by displacement. They are one of the most common types of pumps for hydraulic fluid power applications. The earthmoving, mining, and material handling segment led the market and will continue to dominate the market in the coming years. This sector includes machinery that is used extensively in capital-intensive sectors such as mining, infrastructure development, and construction activities. In terms of geography, the Americas was the leading revenue contributing region in the global gear pump market dutring 2017 and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the next couple of years. Since the US is the major exporter of machinery and equipment, mostly all other nations are dependent on the US for equipment for almost all the sectors. The US caters to several industries including construction, farm, oil and gas, mining, material handling, engines, industrial equipment, refrigerating and heating systems, pumps, and pumping equipment for machinery manufacturing. This generates an augmented demand for spare parts including gear pumps in the region. Access Report Details at:
