Steam Boiler Rental Market: Future growth expected to be driven by construction and consumer spending

Press Release

SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 29, 2017 -- A new analysis by Verify Markets shows the North American Steam Boiler Rental Market was valued at $415.0 million in 2016 and is expected to experience moderate growth during the next seven years. During 2016, most of the boiler rental companies have experienced steady demand, mainly due to expansion of industrial facilities, increase in infrastructure spending, and as a back up during emergency situations.

As the economy grows, the demand of energy increases, subsequently driving the growth in the steam boiler rental industry. Due to the long lead times for new capital equipment as industrial facilities and businesses expand, they may choose to rent additional steam capacity and related solutions rather than lose productivity. Another stimulus for the market is the increase in infrastructure spending.  A steam boiler plays a key role in the process of creating building materials. Construction companies demand boiler rental units for paving and roofing application.

In addition to the continued growth that the market has experienced in the last few years, there are some challenges that boiler rental companies must overcome in the short and medium-term. Even though pollution requirements are encouraging the replacement (or retrofit) of installed steam boilers, challenges include boosting the demand for rental boilers during downtime, environmental requirements, and site permitting, which increases rental costs. In addition, regulations are not consistent among all states, making the permitting process difficult.

Secondly, boiler rental cost is an important factor to take into consideration when companies need to replace, maintain, or repair their existing boilers. During periods of low costumer demand, companies might consider it cost-effective to limit their production capacity during boiler shut down rather renting a boiler to supplement the steam capacity. Lastly, some market participants have stated that they are having increasingly difficulties to find skilled workers.
