Valves Market: Snapshot
Valves are used to control the flow of fluids and gases in number of industries. Rising industrialization globally has given rise to the demand of industrial valves. Often, valves are used to contain flammable, hazardous fluids and gases. Valves control the pressure of such fluids and gases such that they do not escape or leak from the pipes or the pipeline systems. Valves can be manually and automatically operated. The strong need for efficient workplace safety has increased as many industrial processes produce flammable gases and fluids. The need for efficient work place safety is expected to fuel the demand for valves globally. The Global Valves market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.0 % during the forecast period 2018 to 2026. The Global Valves market was valued at US$ 60,906.1 Mn in 2016. The Valves market is also fueled by strict government regulations, policies and acts imposed by governments across different countries globally.
Valves market is mainly driven by increasing demand for pipeline infrastructure. This is majorly attributed to the growing natural gas production from the shale formations that has spurred growth in pipeline constructions, thus propelling the growth of the valves market. Further increasing number of merger & acquisition involving advanced valve manufacturing technologies has been identified as one of the major trends in regions such as North America & Europe. This is attributed to the strategic investments of the companies in technology sector. The intent of M&A is to generate the new source of revenue from new customers and markets by improvising product and service innovation. Furthermore, one of the major reason in the growth of valves market is due to the rise in investments in oil & gas markets. For example: The U.S exports of the refined products, Liquefied Natural Gas and crude oil saw a significant surge as the crude oil export ban was lifted in January 2016. The region is experiencing heavy investments by the oil & gas companies in exploration activities.
The rise in the U.S. upstream spending is primarily driven by the factors such as rising oil field services costs and increased drilling activity. Moreover, based on various oil and gas CAPEX announcements, Oil & Gas Journal (OGJ), stated that upstream spending will surge by 37.8% upto US$ 120 Bn.
Moreover, the trend of companies focusing on automation of their manufacturing plants is majorly seen globally. Complicated processes involved in industries such as oil & gas and pulp & paper are controlled automatically with the usage of robots and other advanced technologies. These processes are generally termed as plant automation or process automation. Introduction of technology in industries globally has made industrial activities highly flexible and effective. The aim of industries to enhance productivity, reduce cost of production, and improve work place safety are some reasons that are projected to foster the increase of plant automation. Valves have been an integral part of process automation system in industries, as they determine the efficiency of the plant. Valves in industries such as manufacturing, oil & gas, water and wastewater treatment, pulp & paper, chemicals, automobile, and food & beverage have witnessed rapid increase in adoption with introduction of process automation. Crucial performance areas for valves on automated plants include complex piping systems, fluctuating temperature pipes, and process pressure control.
The global valves market comprises of large as well as mid-sized valve manufacturers and suppliers. Companies such as Honeywell International, Inc., Emerson Electric Co. and Bürkert Fluid Control Systems have been able to establish strong presence in various countries across the world. The vendors present in Valves market are currently focusing on introducing efficient valves with increased pressure control capacities. Moreover, the vendors are adopting partnership and acquisition strategies to proficiently compete in the regional market.
