Despite strong domestic demand, the average price for fluid regulators has been rising slowly over the past three years.

Fluid regulators have a buyer power score of 3.5. According to IBISWorld analyst Sean Windle, this score indicates an advantage for buyers when negotiating supply agreements.

Low market share concentration is a major factor bolstering buyer power. As such, the marketplace consists mostly of small- and mid-size suppliers such as ABB Ltd., Emerson Electric Company and Parker Hannifin. This factor fosters price competition and gives buyers many choices when sourcing fluid regulators.

High import competition has also supported price competition. Suppliers in China, Mexico and other low-cost producing countries can manufacture comparable products at a fraction of the cost of US suppliers, and subsequently pass cost savings down to buyers in the form of lower prices, says Windle. The combination of low market share concentration, high import competition and falling input costs has been keeping price growth and price volatility in check the past three years despite strong domestic demand.

The main disadvantage for buyers is the lack of viable substitutes. Fluid regulators are necessary in order to regulate and monitor the pressure, flow and temperature of water and other liquids used in industrial, commercial and residential applications. Nonetheless, the impact of the lack of substitutes is minimal, since there are many different types of fluid regulators and the market is highly fragmented.
