The rising urbanization rate, surging consumer expenditure, and depleting groundwater levels are expected to drive the European water pump market at a CAGR of 1.8% during 2020–2030. The market revenue is projected to grow from $707.2 million in 2020 to $848.3 million by 2030. The groundwater level of Europe is declining rapidly, due to the rising temperature, on account of global warming. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) states that the 2019–2020 winter in the region was warmest hitherto, owing to which there was little snow and spring was drier and warmer than normal.
The water pump demand in Europe is primarily driven by the accelerating urbanization rate in the region. According to the World Bank, the urban population of the European Union (EU) nations surged from 334,222,735 in 2019 to 335,651,231 in 2020. As per the organization, nearly 0.427% of the EU population resided in urban areas in 2020. With the booming urban population, governments of EU countries are focusing on improving the existing utility water and drinking water infrastructure.

According to P&S Intelligence, Germany accounted for the largest share in the European water pump market in 2020. This was due to the presence of stringent wastewater treatment laws, which need to be adhered to, even by the domestic treatment facilities in the country. Moreover, the increasing need to lower the energy consumption of pumps in water and wastewater treatment plants is expected to drive the demand for energy-efficient water pumps in the country.
Therefore, the accelerating urbanization rate and lowering groundwater levels will augment the demand for water pumps in Europe.
