Industrial Valves: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 06, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn - Industrial valves are mainly utilized in capital-intensive industries and are designed to regulate and control flow and pressure of liquids, gases, steam and slurries. Valves are also used as flow controllers for pipelines, through which gases, liquids and semi-solids are transported. Valves primarily serve end-use markets such as oil & gas, chemical, petroleum and power, among others. A key driving factor for growth in the market is the growing global energy needs and the ensuing increase in oil & gas exploration, energy generation and petroleum refining activities. Pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food processing sectors are also expected to spur demand for valves. Use of valves in applications such as etching chemicals, ultrapure water systems, and chip washing is poised to benefit from the healthy outlook for the semiconductor and electronics industries.
Growth in the market is largely reliant on investments in manufacturing facilities. Buoyed by technology innovation in valve systems, the market is expected to witness strong growth in the coming years. Several factors, including pollution control regulations, rising demand for water and power and rapid growth of process industries, work in tandem to drive growth in the industrial valves market. The construction of new nuclear power stations in the coming years is expected to spur demand for industrial valves used in nuclear power plants.
