New Product Development was the Key Strategy Adopted by Major Players to Enhance Growth Prospects in the Peristaltic Pumps Market Between 2014 and 2016

The peristaltic pumps market is projected to reach USD 467.5 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2016 to 2021. A peristaltic pump is a type of positive displacement pump with a tube or a hose, used for pumping a variety of fluids. Peristaltic pumps are manufactured using plastics, cast iron, and stainless steel. It is mainly used for pumping a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, corrosives or viscous liquids, aggressive fluids, clean/sterile fluids, and slurries. Peristaltic pumps work on the principle of compressing and pressing the tube or hose material that is positioned between a rotating device and a circular pump housing, where the increased pressure will move the fluid. There has been a growing demand for peristaltic pumps from varied end-use industries, such as water & wastewater treatment, mining, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, and pulp & paper.
