The global industrial valve market is estimated to witness a moderate growth rate of over 4% during the forecast period of 2022-2028 and was valued at around US$ 70 billion in 2021. Valves are essential components in piping systems primarily used for controlling the flow, pressure, and direction of the fluid. Growing industrialization in developing economies such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, etc. is one of the primary factors fueling the industrial valve growth.
Moreover, the increasing global focus on the creation of smart cities, the growing demand for linked connections to maintain and monitor industrial equipment, and the rising need to build new nuclear power plants, and renovation of existing ones are some of the factors that drive the growth of the global industrial valve market. Moreover, growing oil and gas industries, and an increase in demand from the energy and power sector are further expected to drive the demand. However, a lack of standardized norms and government policies is the majoar restraint of the global industrial valve market.
Growing demand from the Oil & Gas industry helps the industrial valve market to grow significantly
The oil & gas industry is estimated to hold a prominent share of the global industrial valve market due to the rising energy demand, and expanding drilling activities, especially in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations. As the demand for fuel increases, various growing countries are launching new oil & gas exploration projects that boost the demand for advanced valve technology.
After COVID-19, the growing need for maintenance work in the oil industry would present profitable prospects for businesses. The need for maintenance operations would also increase prospects for maintenance service providers in the oil & gas industries, resulting in the increasing demand for valves. Moreover, in the oil and gas industry, valve performance can be negotiated by combinations of process conditions such as high-temperature, high-pressure, high-solids, or high cycles.
Asia Pacific is dominating the global market on account of rapid industrialization
Asia Pacific is dominating the global industrial valve market owing to the rapidly growing industrial sector. China is leading the regional market with a dominant market share in 2021 on the back of increasing industrial investment by the industry players and the presence of foremost market players in the country. For instance, GE started commercial operation for around 660 MW Junliangcheng power plant in China in 2021. Moreover, growing industrial activities and a large presence of local players in countries such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, etc. are further expected to push the regional market growth.
Europe is expected to hold a substantial market share in 2021 on account of ongoing government and municipal projects for water and water waste treatment, and increasing investment in oil & gas exploration activities across the European countries. In the Middle East & Africa, the market is expected to witness a strong growth rate owing to the implementation of mega projects in the region, and the KSA government’s ambitious development plan to diversify the economy by prioritizing the industrial and manufacturing sector. Moreover, increasing oil & gas exploration activities across the economies of the region are further fueling the industrial valve market growth.
