Crude Heater Market: Introduction
A crude heater is considered to be a key element of the refinery industry. In order to ensure well maintained and efficient operations in an oil and gas industry, plant managers equip their facilities with advanced, reliable, and durable industrial heating equipment. Crude heaters are required to heat crude oil prior to the first stage of compression. Crude heaters are used to ensure better separation properties as well as improve the fluidity of the crude oil. Crude heaters also help in reducing the viscosity of some kinds of crude oils by preheating the material to generate easy flow. Owing to their several important features and benefits, the demand for efficient crude heaters is anticipated to witness significant growth in the near future. This rising demand for crude heaters is expected to significantly contribute in the growth of the global crude heater market over the forecast period.

Crude Heater Market: Dynamics
The growing demand for efficient and durable crude heaters in the oil and gas industry is considered to be the primary growth driver for the global crude heater market. Owing to the increasing demand for gasoline and fuel, the oil industry is anticipated to witness steady growth in the near future. The continuously increasing demand for refinery products across numerous end-use sectors is a sign for the future demand for high quality crude oil. In order to fulfill the demand for crude oil products, vendors have increased their refinery capacities. For example, in recent years, PDVSA and PETROBRAS have increased their refining capacities. This, in turn, is estimated to propel the demand for crude heaters over the period of forecast.
Manufacturers in the crude heater market have to face some challenges regarding the stringent regulations laid down by governments. In order to reduce VOC (Volatile Organic Carbon) emissions from industries, regulatory legislations laid out by the EU government – REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) – address the production and use of chemical substances such as process oil, and its potential impacts on humans and the environment. The parliaments of other regions such as European nations have banned oil with high content of hydrocarbons, which affects the production of oil in terms of volume, subsequently hindering the growth of the crude heater market.
The ongoing trend gaining momentum in the oil and gas industry is the introduction of the flameless combustion technique by Great Southern Flameless (GSF). This technology was introduced in the glass and steel industry many years before, as both these industries operate at very high temperatures and run at constant steady state conditions, which is considered to be an ideal condition for flameless combustion. The commercialization of flameless fired crude heaters demanded several design features to have a flameless heater operating in the refining environment.

Crude Heater Market: Regional Outlook
Globalization, population growth, and economic changes have not only contributed to the crude oil industry, but have also led to a rise in the standards of oil and gas services. The increasing number of refinery projects in Europe and the Middle East, particularly Russia, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, and many others, is estimated to propel the demand for crude heaters. These nations have huge oil reserves, which, in turn, surges the demand for crude heaters. Further, Asia Pacific is estimated to be a key opportunistic market, due to the setting up of new refineries to meet the growing demand for new units in developing countries. This may positively impact the global crude heater market during the forecast period.
