Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd., Sunpower Inc., And Air Liquide – Prominent Market Participants In Cryocoolers Market
The cryocoolers market is highly competitive in nature with considerable number of players, having a high level of dominance over the overall revenue share. Most of the companies operating in the cryocoolers market are present globally and have wide distribution and sales network through partnerships or authorized dealers.
The most prominent market players in cryocoolers market Advanced Research Systems, Inc., Brooks Automation Inc., Chart Industries Inc., Cryomech Inc., Northrop Grumman Corporation, RICOR – Cryogenic & Vacuum Systems, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd., Sunpower Inc. (Ametek Inc.), Superconductor Technologies Inc., and Thales Group among others for a considerable share of the market owing to their product offerings to the market.
Market leaders are involved in extensive research for the development of new products with advanced technology. For instance, in 2018 Sunpower launched Active Vibration Cancellation for CryoTel MT, CT, and GT cryocoolers. The AVC system’s active balancer uses a feedback signal from an accelerometer to cancel the first 10 harmonics of the 60 Hz operation of the cryocooler, minimizing vibration at the cold tip as well as exported vibration to its mounting structure. Subsequently, introduction of such advanced innovation are expected to provide this market with lucrative growth opportunities.
Many well-known as well as small local companies are present in the cryocoolers market to provide diversified product to its customers. The larger firms are adopting the strategy of partnership, contractual alliances for the deployment of new technological solutions to enhance its product portfolio and expand its footprint in different geographies.
