Industrial Valves

As Quoted In Investorideas

Valve manufacturers will benefit from renewed strength in key industries that utilize valves, including process manufacturing, public utilities, resource industries, and construction.

US demand to rise 4.9% annually through 2018

Demand for industrial valves in the US is forecast to increase 4.9 percent per year to $19.8 billion in 2018, a considerable improvement from the performance registered during the 2008-2013 period. Valves are relatively mature products, and although design innovation and material developments provide some impetus for growth, sales levels in any given year are primarily determined by the performance of the industries that utilize these valves. During the 2008-2013 timeframe, end-use markets for valves were negatively impacted by the recession, posting below average growth or declines. Through 2018, valve manufacturers will benefit from renewed strength in the industries that utilize these products.

Construction market to grow the fastest

The construction market will post the strongest increases in valve demand, as both residential and nonresidential construction spending increase at double-digit growth rates, rebounding from the declines recorded during the 2008-2013 period. Utilities construction will also recover, bolstering the large associated valve market. In addition, US oil and gas production will continue to increase, driving sales of the often high-value valves utilized in these applications (custom engineered valves for use in large-diameter oil pipelines can cost upwards of $100,000). However, process manufacturing will remain the largest end-use market for valves. Gains in this market will be supported by growth in manufacturing output, particularly in the valve-intensive chemical industry.

Automatic valves to outpace standard types

Demand for automatic valves is forecast to outpace increases in standard valve sales, as a result of efforts by consumers to improve operational efficiencies. Furthermore, the positive outlook for most valve-using industries will lead companies to opt for automatic products in applications where they may have purchased standard valves in weaker economies. Automatic regulator valves will post the strongest gains of any product, as a result of their widespread use in chemical, oil and gas, and utility applications.

Valve imports to accelerate

Shipments of industrial valves from US manufacturers are forecast to slightly outpace domestic demand through 2018. As US valve demand grows, import gains will accelerate from the 2008-2013 period and the US trade deficit will expand. Moreover, in order to remain competitive with foreign companies, a number of US valve producers have established offshore manufacturing facilities in countries with lower labor costs, which will limit export opportunities.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $15.6 billion US industrial valve industry. It presents historical demand data (2003, 2008 and 2013) and forecasts (2018 and 2023) by material (e.g., steel and steel alloys, copper-based, iron, plastic), product (e.g., multiturn, quarterturn, application-specific, safety and relief, control, regulator, automatic actuators), and market (e.g., process manufacturing, utilities, resource extraction, construction). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 34 industry players, including Emerson Electric, Cameron International, and General Electric.
