Follow us on LinkedIn - Industrial valves are mainly utilized in capital-intensive industries, primarily for controlling flow of gases, liquids, and solid slurries. Industrial valves market dynamics are thus dependent on new investments and upgrade projects for existing facilities. Industrial valves play a vital role in infrastructure development activities, worldwide. Buoyed by technology innovation in valve systems, the market is expected to witness significant demand in key end-use sectors like clean water, energy, food, and power. 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.
As stated by the new market research report on Industrial Valves, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide supported by increased focus on plant automation. Future growth is expected to be the strongest in emerging markets of Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East, due to fast-paced economic development and increasing maturity of developed markets. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 7.6% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by strong investments in heavy industries and infrastructure development projects. A significant proportion of the incremental demand in the region is expected from China, supported by the formulation of national developmental policies for industrial development.
Globe and Check Valves represent the largest product segment in the industrial valves market. Globe valves are ideal for use in high-pressure systems and are usually unaffected by the presence of sludge or impurities in the fluid. Nuclear valves represents the fastest growing product 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. The need to upgrade and repair existing nuclear power plants, in order to ensure their compliance with new safety standards in the aftermath of Fukushima nuclear disaster, is expected to stimulate sales of nuclear valves.
Chemical industry represents the largest and fastest growing end-use sector in the global industrial valves market. Another key end-use sector driving growth in the industrial valves market is the oil and gas industry, owing to the escalating global energy needs. With the continued emphasis on oil and gas exploration activity amidst escalating demand for fuel, investments in establishing refineries and pipeline network for transmission continue to increase, which in turn bode well for the industrial valves market. Valves used in petroleum refining market are finding increased demand led by the introduction of new capacities, extensive refining capacity expansions by refiners, and growing demand for motor vehicle fuel.
