The competitive landscape of the U.S. industrial gas regulators market is highly fragmented due to the presence of several players. However, the top three players held a dominant share of 58.6% in the overall market in 2015. The Linde Group, Honeywell Process Solutions, and Emerson Electric Co. are expected to remain in the leading position as these companies offer turnkey solutions with their backward and forward integration activities.
According to the research report, the U.S. industrial gas regulators market was valued at US$2.3 bn in 2015 and is expected to be worth US$3.0 bn by the end of 2024. During the forecast years of 2016 and 2024, the overall market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 3%.
Oil and Gas Segment Expected to Emerge as Leading Application Segment
The various gasses studied in this report are inert, toxic, and corrosive. Out of these, the demand for inert gasses is expected to remain high throughout the forecast years. This segment is expected to be worth US$1.8 bn by the end of 2024. This growth will be attributable to the booming uptake of natural gas across several industrial sectors and the growing usage of inert gas to prevent the unwanted chemical reactions that could occur during manufacturing processes.
These gasses are used in industries such as oil and gas, steel and metal processing, food and beverages, and chemicals. Analysts anticipate that the oil and gas application will emerge as the leading application segment in the coming years due to growing adoption of gas regulators for attaining accurate pressure control. In terms of revenue, the oil and gas application segment in the U.S. industrial gas regulators market is estimated to rise at a CAGR of 3.1% between 2016 and 2024.
Product Innovation Steers U.S. Industrial Gas Regulators Market in Positive Direction
The U.S. industrial gas regulators market is expected to thrive against the backdrop of remarkable improvements in gas regulator technologies. The increasing demand for innovative products that promise improved reliability and performance is expected to play a crucial role in defining the trajectory of the overall market. Furthermore, demand is also expected to rise as newer products are expected to reduce the redundancy of work and improve safety of users.
The report states that the usage of natural gas a key fuel will also have a positive impact on the soaring demand of industrial gas regulators. For instance, the growing number of industrial boilers and furnaces have also fueled the sales of industrial gas regulators across the U.S. in recent years. Several industries such as chemicals, paper, food, manufacturing, and refining use these furnaces and boilers. As the related activities gain momentum, the demand for industrial gas regulators will also shoot up as they help to monitor, maintain, and control gas flow and pressure.
Varying Standards Make Fabrication Process Difficult
Stringent regulatory norms pertaining to the manufacturing of gas regulators is likely to hamper the growth of the overall market. As these gas regulators are used in a wide range of industrial verticals such as oil and gas, aerospace, food processing, and automotive, they have to be made with absolute accuracy. Also, fabrication of gas regulators is based on set of standards that vary with each industry verticals.
