U.S. industrial valves market share by product, 2012 - 2022 (USD Million)

U.S. industrial valves market

Increased adoption of diagnostics and smart technology in industrial valves for monitoring process variables which include upstream & downstream pressure stem position, temperature, and the flow rate is expected to fuel demand over the next seven years.

Advancement of smart valves with integrated embedded processor and network capability for subsea oil & gas has increased the reliability and responsiveness of the systems, which is expected to be a high impact rendering driver.

Growing production and exploration spending in the oil & gas industry has spurred the demand owing to technological innovations, enabling access to resources in deep waters or unusual reservoirs such as high temperature, high-pressure, under-pressured, and unconventional or depleted reservoirs.

Increased pipeline installations and growth in unconventional oil & gas applications across downstream segment is expected to induce substantial growth prospects for the industrial valves market. Growing prominence of automation in the process industry has led to the increment in the demand for automated control valves.

Some factors which may hinder growth included emoting of coal usage and shutdowns of conventional coal-fired plants. Fluctuations in the raw material prices may reduce the usage and adoption of the technology. Additionally, compliance with stringent government regulations for conventional power plants may hamper industry growth.

Product Insights

The industry can be categorized by product into ball, butterfly, gate, globe, and check valves. Ball valves accounted for over 19% of the revenue share in 2014. These valves are primarily used for flow control and situations where tight shut-off is required. The technology assists in circulating systems on ships, chlorine manufacturers, and fire safe protection services.

The demand for butterfly valves has witnessed a considerable rise in the recent years owing to its evolving usage in the oil & gas industry. The increase in exploration & up-gradation activities due to substantial investments in pipelines and refineries in the oil & gas industry is estimated to fuel demand.

Check valves’ demand is anticipated to witness steady growth, with a CAGR of over 7% over the next seven years. These valves are unidirectional and avoid the process flow from returning to the system, thereby preventing it from damaging the equipment and disrupting the process. Increasing automation and requirements for controlling fluid flow in refineries have positively impacted the demand across industries.

Application Insights

Application sectors analyzed in the study include oil & gas, power, pharmaceutical, municipal wastewater, chemical, and food & beverage. Oil &gas segment accounted for over 21% of the overall revenue share in 2014. Increasing demand for deeper wells, longer pipelines and lower production costs along with the technological enhancement of processing, production, and transportation have contributed to the industrial valves market growth. Moreover, increasing pipeline installations and the need for monitoring & controlling from centralized location has propelled the smart valves production and demand in the industry.

Water & wastewater application is expected to witness significant growth, growing at a CAGR of close to 6%over the forecast period. Growing population and urbanization are expected to drive the adoption. Increasing need for isolating the pumps & equipment and for controlling the flow of wastewater and municipal water treatment is also expected to play a major role in increasing industry penetration.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific market was over USD 20 billion in 2014. The escalating construction activities and booming consumption of chemicals are anticipated to positively impact production across the region. Furthermore, growing construction of new nuclear power stations and capacity expansions in petroleum refining plants are also expected to drive the demand. For instance, China is projected to invest in the construction of new coal-fired and scrubbers power plants.

North America market is expected to offer a huge platform for potential growth. Growing production of oil sands and shale gas offers great potential for growth across this region. The replacement of old and inefficient valves with more efficient valves for gas transportation in midstream infrastructure is anticipated to boost the overall valves demand.

The U.S. market is undergoing a revolution in the production of oil & gas from shale gas, and the developments have led the high investments in exploration and production in North America. The increasing trend for electricity generation from renewable sources of energy is expected to strengthen market potential.

Europe market demand was over USD 12 billion in 2014 and is anticipated to witness slower growth as compared to other regions. However, with the development of offshore sites and growing demand originating from Russia in the midstream segment of oil & gas, the demand for valves is expected to witness an increase across the region over the forecast period.
