As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the market is expected to be driven by the rapid industrialization and the increasing demand for reliable components for material transportation across diverse industries.


Industrial hoses are pivotal tools used across various industries, serving essential functions such as fluid and material transport. In construction, they facilitate concrete pumping, water transfer, and dewatering. The oil and gas industry uses hoses for fluid transmission during drilling and oil transfer operations. In the food and beverage sector, hoses ensure the safe transfer of liquids, semi-solid, and powders. Other sectors like mining, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, automotive, manufacturing, and water and wastewater treatment also rely on hoses for material handling, chemical transfer, ventilation, suction and discharge, and cleaning processes.


The flourishing end-use industries like food and beverage, construction, chemical, personal care, and cosmetics are aiding the demand for industrial hose globally. These end-use industries are primarily driven by rapid urbanization and infrastructure development globally. The food and beverage industry is expected to increase by 5% Y-O-Y in 2024 from the previous year in the Asia Pacific. South America follows it at 1.7%, the Eurozone and UK at 1.3%, and North America at 1.1%.


Food and Beverages Output per Region, Year-on-Year Percentage Change


Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) hoses are popular since they are flexible, durable, and resistant to corrosion, chemicals, and UV radiation, making them suitable for diverse industries. Development of advanced materials like rubber-resin polymer alloys, which are flexible, heat-resistant, and lightweight, is also supporting the market expansion. The growing pharmaceutical sector is also increasing the demand for silicone hoses, ideal for hygienic transport and high-temperature, chemical-resistant applications.


Further, increasing mergers and acquisitions and new manufacturing setup by industry players are shaping the market dynamics. In February 2024, Singer Industrial acquired Hose Tech USA, enhancing its on-site hose repair presence and expanding its North American footprint to over 100 locations.


In January 2024, Continental invested USD 90 million to build a new hydraulic hose production plant in Aguascalientes, Mexico. The facility is expected to enhance Continental’s manufacturing capacities and is part of their strategy to become a leading supplier of hydraulic hoses in the Americas. The plant, which will be Continental's largest in Mexico, will feature advanced infrastructure like solar panels and SmartFactory tools, and is expected to start operations in the second half of 2025.
