The pump industry in India is fragmented as margins are thinner, controlled by the unorganised sector which consists of 5,000-6,000 small scale Indian manufacturers(SSI) of pumps with a handful players from the organised sector. As per estimates pumps, present in India with Indian Standards Institution (ISI) mark are often sticked on without requisite certification affects product quality. Booming agriculture sector, growing economy and rapid industrialisation have changed the pump industry. Population explosion and depleting per capita water availability in India has termed India as a “Water Stressed Nation”. Water crisis in India is driving demand for water pumps as erratic rain patterns and dependence on groundwater for irrigation increases as India fundamentally lacks water storage capacity. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s project of “smart cities“ will drive demand for water and industrial pumps as infrastructural development projects kick-off. According to industry experts, demand for water pumps, other pumps used in various industries is expected to grow around compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% between 2015-2020.
