Global demand for industrial valves will grow 5.5 percent per year through 2007. Gains will be supported by positive economic and fixed investment growth in developing regions and stronger demand for more expensive automated valves and actuators in advanced nations.
This study analyzes the US$46.5 billion world valves industry. It presents historical demand data (1992, 1997 and 2002) and forecasts to 2007 and 2012 by valve type (e.g., standard multiturn, quarterturn, other conventional, automatic control, regulator, automatic actuators); by world region and for 34 countries.
The study also examines the market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 40 leading competitors including Tyco, Flowserve, Emerson, Dresser, Kitz, ABB, Circor, Metso, KSB, and SPX.
