Why this is important to Wisconsin businesses: Opportunities for Wisconsin companies that make industrial furnaces, heat exchangers, and heating and cooling units and components
In recent years, many new companies have been established in Mexico. The automobile and aerospace industries have been growing especially rapidly, creating demand for industrial furnaces for heat treatment.
As a result, a number of international manufacturers have built new factories in Mexico, which has become an exporting base for the North, Central and South American markets. Further growth of heat treatment demand is expected in association with expanding automobile production. In addition, many companies have been developing manufacturing and maintenance businesses for industrial furnaces.
Mexico is becoming a more important market for companies in various sectors due to the manufacturing of cheap components for high-tech production. Due in part, to Mexico's consistent performance and production, a variety of well-known brands are engaging in a great deal of research, development and production of highly complex components in the country.
According to industrial directories in Mexico, the country has more than 150 companies dedicated to industrial ovens and more than 93 dedicated to heat treatment. The majority of the companies involved in heat treatment and the manufacture of industrial ovens are located in Nuevo Leon and Mexico City.
Demand for heat exchangers is likely to increase significantly due to the rapidly developing chemicals and hydrocarbon sectors as well as upcoming power projects. Maximizing thermal efficiency is the primary driver of the increasing demand for heat exchangers.
Presently, the market for heat exchangers includes reputed companies such as Alfa Laval Corporate AB, Hisaka Works Ltd. and SAACKE GmbH, to mention a few. Most of these companies operate through dealers and distributors, many of which are exclusive to a single company. Products range from portable to heavy-duty heat exchangers.
Heavy-duty or customized heat exchangers are usually utilized by large industrial customers. On the other hand, portable heat exchangers cater mostly to residential or small commercial establishments. A rapidly developing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) industry, coupled with brisk capacity additions in both the power and hydrocarbons sectors, is expected to boost demand for heat exchangers. Currently, significant investment in Mexico is being made to develop infrastructure to enable matching the growth rate of other mature industries.
According to industrial directories in Mexico, the country has more than 400 companies dedicated to the sector of heat exchangers. The majority of the companies are located in Guadalajara, Nuevo Leon and Mexico City.
Mexico is home to a diverse manufacturing industry where a wide range of products are assembled in the country and exported to countries around the globe. The automotive and aerospace industries have experienced significant growth over the years, and both are currently thriving. However, there is another Mexican production industry growing as well: heating and cooling.
Guanajuato and Queretaro are essentially the HVAC states of the country. Mexico’s HVAC sector is poised to experience annual growth of as much as 25 percent. This figure includes not only the production and sale of complete HVAC units, but also critical components and parts necessary for their operation, such as compressors, heat and vacuum pumps and various valves.
As the global economy continues to improve, Mexico’s HVAC industry will also expand and become more robust. According to industrial directories in Mexico, the country has more than 600 companies dedicated to the HVAC sector.
