The vacuum pump market was valued at US$5.25 billion in 2021.

A vacuum pump is a mechanical device used to extract gas from a chamber or sealed container to create a vacuum or low-pressure environment. Gas molecules travel from higher pressure to f lower pressure area as a result of the partial vacuum created inside the chamber. By using this procedure, the pump may empty the chamber, bringing the pressure down to the required level. Vacuum pumps are employed in manufacturing chemicals, semiconductors, food packaging, and pharmaceuticals. Vacuum pumps aid in clearing the process chambers of unwelcome gases, moisture, and pollutants to ensure effective and hygienic operations.


  • The growing semiconductor Industry is expected to propel the vacuum pump market growth

The global sales of semiconductors increased by 26.2% in 2021, according to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics. Governments all over the world recognize the strategic importance of the semiconductor sector as a result of the recent growth in IC demand. Hence significant expenditures are being made to ensure a reliable and robust semiconductor infrastructure. Therefore, vacuum pump manufacturing companies are capitalizing on thisand an expansion in the vacuum pump market size is anticipated.

For instance,  In November 2022, Edwards, a part of Atlas Copco announced to construction of its new dry vacuum pump manufacturing facility in New York, USA. The 22,000 sqm facility will become operational by the end of 2024 and will be powered by renewable energy. The new establishment will expand Edward’s dry vacuum pump production capacity in the USA.   

  • Rising scientific and academic research

In scientific experiments, sample preparation, and analytical equipment, these pumps are utilized in vacuum systems. Vacuum pump manufacturers are always looking for ways to improve the functionality and effectiveness of their products. They work to boost pumping rates while lowering power usage, enhancing dependability, and lowering noise levels. These developments make it possible for researchers to conduct faster and more effective evacuations, increasing experimental throughput and productivity. Hence, with rising scientific and academic research, the demand for vacuum pumps is expected to rapidly increase.

Market Challenges

One of the main constraints of vacuum pumps market growth is the requirement for constant maintenance as such pumps are vulnerable to damage from liquid slugs. To guarantee optimal efficiency and longevity, vacuum pumps need routine maintenance such as oil changes, seal replacements, and cleaning. Depending on the pump type and manufacturer, the cost of maintenance and the availability of consumables such as lubricants, filters, and seals can change. These elements pose a threat to the vacuum pump market expansion.

Company Insights

Pfeiffer Vacuum, a leading German manufacturer of vacuum pumps, reported a surge in sales by 17.2% to EUR 253.1 million in the first quarter of 2023, marking the first time in the company's history that a quarter of sales exceeds EUR 250 million. Strong performances across all market segments were the primary factor in the sales gain. The Company further anticipates that the second quarter of 2023 will be robust due to the existing large backlog, with demand falling in the latter part of 2023 due to conditions in the semiconductor market.

Cost Analysis:

Vacuum pump prices can vary significantly based on the brand, size, performance requirements, and type of pump. Pumps with faster pumping rates, better ultimate vacuum levels, and more sophisticated features are typically more expensive. Additionally, more expensive pumps made specifically for a given application may be available.

Product Offerings by key market players:

  • Edwards Vacuum provides a selection of premium pumps ideal for a variety of applications. Their products, which are renowned for their dependability and effectiveness, include the Edwards RV series featuring oil-sealed rotary vane pumps, the Edwards XDS series featuring dry scroll pumps, and the Edwards nXDS series featuring oil-free scroll pumps.
  • Busch Vacuum vacuum pumps are used  in both industrial and research settings. The Busch R5 series, Busch Mink series, and Busch COBRA series which are renowned for their effectiveness, dependability, and little maintenance needs, are among the company's product offerings.

Growth anticipated in oil & gas Applications

Vacuum pumps are used in the oil industry for processes, including the production of oil and gas, refinement, and pipeline operations.  Further, in automotive applications, vacuum pumps are used, particularly in diesel-powered automobiles. They help to power a variety of systems, including exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valves, vacuum-operated actuators, and brake boosters. Apart from these applications, they are also employed in HVAC, chemicals, food and beverage, and dental and medical industries among others. 

Geographic Insight

North America is projected to dominate thevacuum pumps market owing to the rising investments in end-user like oil and gas, chemical, and power generation where vacuum pumps find major applicability in removing surface contaminants. According to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, Canada’s upstream oil & gas investments are expected to reach $40 billion in 2023

Recent Developments

  • In March 2023, Busch Vacuum Solution Launched its dry vacuum pump series “COBRA DX 0650/0950 A” which provides higher particle tolerance and is suitable for medium vacuum applications such as lithium battery production, vacuum furnaces, coating, and food packaging
  •  November 2022- Atlas Copco announced the acquisition of assets of Shandong Jinggong Pump Co., Ltd, a Chinese firm that designs and produces liquid ring vacuum pumps and systems for chemical and other general sectors.

Trends in the vacuum technology market:

Vacuum technology needs to persuade consumers in their daily activities with attributes including performance, sustainability, and ergonomics. Hence, companies are taking initiatives to launch more sustainable products for example, the new DVS vacuum pump series from Atlas Copco launched in May 2023 was created with this demand profile in mind. Such initiatives will change the landscape of the vacuum pump market.
