FMI’s Study on Industrial Valves Market: Steel Continues to Gain Preference over Other Materials; Accounts for 85% Value Shares

Jul 19,2019 | Industrial Automation & Equipment

Up from the revenues worth US$ 61 Bn registered in 2018, the global market for industrial valves is projected to witness modest growth by the end of 2019. A new market research report by Future Market Insights (FMI) suggests that the increasing exploration activities for new water sources will predominantly favor the growth of market over the course of coming years.

The steady expansion of chemical industry and revival of oil & gas industry are also likely to play a crucial role in pushing sales of industrial valves at a global level. Furthermore, FMI’s report indicates that abundant opportunities exist in chemical, and water & wastewater industries.

With the onset of Industry 4.0 and the reciprocating shift of industries towards automation, the industrial valves landscape is compelled to move beyond its traditional, old-school valve engineering models. Although manually operated valves still account for almost 2/3rd of total sales, FMI foresees a rapidly progressing market scenario for automated valves in the next few years. 

By type, the gate type of industrial valves segment is expected to hold prominent value shares of the global industrial valves market. Furthermore, the globe valve segment is expected to be the prominent segment throughout the forecast period. Gate valves, closely trailed by globe and ball valves, are identified to remain the sought-after industrial valve types throughout the forecast period. A number of manufacturers are however focusing on investments in globe industrial valves. FMI’s research also highlights visibly growing market attractiveness of butterfly valves across industries.

The analysis of industrial valves market on the basis of materials reveals that cast steel, carbon steel, and stainless steel remain the preferred materials among manufacturers of industrial valves, which collectively account for ~85% shares in the revenues. Bronze is likely to emerge lucrative as a material of choice, over the years to come, as indicated by report findings.

Market in APEJ Projected for Remunerative Growth

The market in Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) is expected to exhibit lucrative growth potential in the global industrial valves market over the forecast period of 2019-2029. According to the report, this growth is propelled by the rapid growth in the oil & gas industry in countries of APEJ such as India and China, and ASEAN Countries, among others. The economic condition of these countries have been positively developing.

Furthermore, owing to the effects of macroeconomic factors such as growing population, urbanization, and rapid industrialization, the confidence of investors and investments in housing and other residential projects across APEJ has increased drastically. Consequently, the region’s chemical has considerable momentum over the past few years. This overall scenario is translating into modest growth in the demand for valves across the multiple industries, eventually pushing the market growth potential of APEJ.
