The global stainless steel bellows market is expected to reach USD 2.2 billion by 2028. Stainless steel bellows are used in various industries such as automotive, HVAC, aerospace, architecture, and water treatment applications owing to their corrosion-resistant properties and dimensional stability. The demand for the product has increased due to rising awareness among end-users of the benefits offered by these products and the increasing need for high-quality materials in construction work.
Stainless steel bellows are tubes that provide a flexible and airtight seal to withstand high pressure. They are typically made from stainless steel, but can also be manufactured with other materials such as brass, aluminum, or plastic. Bellows come in various shapes and sizes depending on the application required including flat-sided square bellows for automotive applications or telescopic cylindrical types for HVAC systems. The size of the inside diameter is determined by the maximum difference between two points while maintaining an adequate clearance space so that when compressed it does not contact any part of its outside surface. Bellow designs may include flanges on both ends; welded joints; screw connections (for flared tube); tongue and groove type connections; and other types of connections.
On the basis of type, the global stainless steel bellows market is segmented into flange connection, welding, screw connection, and others.
A flange connection is a type of bellows where two mutually parallel surfaces, one spherical and the other cylindrical surface are joined by an edge or ridge. This type of bellows can be used to reduce pressure fluctuations due to changes in gas flow rate and volume that might otherwise cause noise problems for machinery.
Welding types of stainless steel bellows are used in applications where the flanges cannot be welded or where welding is not a desirable option. These connections require an adapter to allow for connection to the two pipes, and they can either be bolted or clamped together with Allen screws. This type of connector has been widely adopted due to its low cost when compared to other options.
A screw connection is a type of bellows that are connected with screws. This kind of connection is commonly used in automotive and HVAC applications. screw-connection-type Stainless steel bellows are manufactured using screwed connections. They are often utilized in the automotive or heating, ventilation, air conditioning marketplaces as well as for commercial purposes such as architecture projects and water treatment facilities. The most common use for this product is to provide flexible seals between two pipes while preventing pressure from leaking through them when they're exposed to different atmospheric pressures over time.
On the basis of application, the global stainless steel bellows market is segmented into automotive, HVAC (heating ventilation air conditioning), aerospace, architecture, water treatment, and other applications.
Stainless steel bellows are utilized in automobiles to provide flexible seals between two pipes while preventing pressure from leaking through them when they're exposed to different atmospheric pressures over time. Bellows are often used in automotive applications. This is because they can seal against a variety of different fluids, including gas and water. This makes them useful for sealing engine compartments from the various liquids that might leak out from time to time. When these things happen it's important to have something there on hand that will be able to withstand whatever liquid comes its way without any issues at all and this is where bellows come into play.
Stainless steel bellows are used in HVAC mainly to seal the joints between pieces of metal. The use of stainless steel is advantageous because it doesn’t corrode, rust, or react with water vapor as other metals might do. Bellows can range from a standard length of 11 inches (279mm) up to 72 inches (1829mm) and can be used in a variety of applications, including outdoor air compressors. The application in HVAC is used as a buffer between two air handling units to prevent uncomfortable fluctuations of the temperature and pressure. Stainless steel bellows are also used to seal the joints between pieces of metal when they come into contact with water vapor or other substances that might corrode the metals.
Aerospace is an industry that relies on bellows for a number of purposes. For example, aerospace engineers often need to quickly remove and replace valves in order to repair or service the aircraft’s systems without having to wait until they land. Stainless steel bellows can be used as part of this process because they are durable, flexible, and can withstand high pressures.
In addition, the aerospace industry often needs to store live compressed air onboard aircraft for use in start-up engines or other occasions when an engine begins to malfunction during flight. Bellows are used as part of this process because they create a strong seal without requiring long-term installation while still allowing for quick access by the aircraft’s engineers.
Stainless steel bellows are used in architectural applications where the material is needed to withstand corrosion or be in contact with water. Stainless steel can often also provide a level of insulation though it may not be as efficient as PTFE for this purpose. In addition, stainless steel will typically hold tighter tolerances and has greater durability than other metals such as galvanized metal. Due to these properties, stainless steel is most commonly found within building envelopes that require ventilation systems (for example, air vents) due to its ability to resist degradation from moisture over time.
In water treatment systems, bellows are often used to regulate pressure in the system and protect against the backflow of contaminated water or other substances from one area into another part of a plant that is not designed for that type of liquid. The seals created by stainless steel bellows do not require regular inspection like other types of seals and can be designed to last for a long time before requiring replacement.
On the basis of region, the global stainless steel bellows market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. In 2017 North America was the largest region holding about 45% of total volume share and accounted for substantial revenue shares owing to increasing demand from industrial sectors such as automotive production; moreover, it also benefitted from growing infrastructure investments especially related to oil and gas exploration.
Latin American countries like Brazil increased their rates which enhanced investment opportunities for the region. In Europe, Italy and the UK accounted for significant revenue shares in 2017.
The Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth rate as it surpassed North America in 2018 with a volume share of 19% owing to high demand from automotive production; moreover growing infrastructure investments especially related to oil and gas exploration are also boosting steel bellows market size.
The Middle East & African countries like Saudi Arabia will be a major contributor towards regional revenue due to the rise in disposable incomes coupled with increasing industrialization activities such as construction projects which have been supporting the global stainless steel bellows market since the early 2000s.
The dynamic stainless steel bellows market is primarily led by drivers such as increased demand from the automotive sector for lightweight, energy-efficient materials. In addition, favorable government initiatives to promote cleaner and greener automobiles are attracting a lot of attention towards these products. Furthermore, increasing investments in infrastructure projects across regions also provide strong growth prospects for this industry over the coming years. Stringent regulations and increased demand from the energy, oil & gas sector for corrosion-resistant products are expected to be major factors fueling growth in this market.
