Factors Governing Control Valves Market

Traditionally, the control valves were mechanically used, without any processor or chip being embedded in them. However, the compounding demand for energy has put pressure on the power sector to improve their operations, which is why companies are now adopting processor-embedded valves. This new technology allows the valves to deliver real-time data on flow rates and operating conditions and helps in predictive maintenance and mitigating unplanned shutdowns, which is why it is trending in the control valves market.

The increasing energy demand, due to the booming population, leads to the growth of the energy sector, which helps supply the raised energy amount. As the demand surges, consistent performance is becoming even more important, as are the advancements in the equipment required for the production, transportation, and processing of energy. To meet this demand, valves are required in power plants, which is expected to drive the growth of the control valves market during the forecast period.

The discovery of new fossil fuel reserves in the APAC region is expected to create immense opportunities for the players operating in the control valves market. Due to the advancements in the exploration technology, new reserves of oil and gas have been found in different countries in the APAC region, such China and Thailand. These discoveries will lead to the increasing exploration and production activities, which, in turn, will result in the heavy usage of control valves.

Segmentation Analysis of Control Valve Market

The pneumatic control valve category, by actuation technology, accounted for almost 40.0% market share, by volume in 2017. This is attributed to the ability of this technology to provide precise linear motion in a wide range of temperatures. Furthermore, the high success rate of pneumatic control valves in the oil and gas industry also boosts their control valves market share.

The butterfly valve category, by type, accounted for the largest share, in terms of volume, during the historical period (2013–2017), on account of small size of such variants and their ability to open and close quickly when actuated. Additionally, butterfly valves are precise in controlling the flow of the liquids, which makes them advantageous in industrial applications.

The demand for control valves from the pharmaceutical industry is expected to witness the fastest growth, in the global control valves market, during the forecast period, on account of the importance of maintaining the hygiene and proper flow of the raw materials required for the production of medicines.
