Pneumatic Positioner Market: Introduction

  • A pneumatic positioner is a force balance device used to adjust the position of valve actuators by using controlled pneumatic output pressure.
  •  The application of pneumatic positioners in industrial automation for controlling the motion in valve actuators improves the productivity of the equipment.

Pneumatic Positioner Market Dynamics

  • The increasing demand for customized pneumatic positioners is considered to be a key factor fueling the growth of the pneumatic positioner market. Manufacturers of valve positioners are engaged in providing a wide range of customizable products in terms of coating and body material of the positioners to differentiate themselves from other leading vendors present in the market and to sustain in this competitive environment.
  • Wide availability of customizable products aid different end-users to select appropriate customized products as per their application requirements. For instance, vendors in the chemical and petrochemical industry select anti-corrosion coating enabled valve positioners as these positioners are exposed to numerous chemically harsh liquids.
  • Increasing usage of digital or smart valve positioners is another key trend gaining traction in the market. These positioners can analyze the functioning of the valves by collecting data about the valves. Therefore, manufacturers are able to produce analytical models which help to improve the operational efficiency of the plant.
  • Smart positioners are increasingly being adopted by end-users as it offers more operational efficiency than the other conventional positioners.
  • However, the fluctuation in prices of raw material for manufacturing pneumatic positioners is expected to limit the growth of the market in the upcoming years. Any volatility in raw material prices prevents manufacturing companies from adopting pneumatic positioners, thereby restraining the growth of the market.
