World Industrial Valves

Growth in valve demand will be driven by continuing robust gains in the Asia/Pacific region, as well as strong recovery in the US and West European markets from a weak 2010 base.

World demand to rise 5.4% annually through 2015

Global demand for industrial valves is forecast to increase 5.4 percent per year through 2015 to $93.5 billion. Gains will be driven by continuing robust gains in the Asia/Pacific region, as well as strong recovery in the US and West European markets from a weak 2010 base. In the developing world, especially in China and India, valve suppliers will benefit from rising urbanization. Large-scale migration from villages to cities will, in many cases, necessitate major upgrades to existing water supply and power generation infrastructures, bolstering valve sales in the process. Valve demand growth in the US will outpace the global average through 2015 due to recovery in the domestic economy after the 2007-2009 recession. Valve demand in Japan and Western Europe will also recover from recent declines, but advances will continue to considerably lag the world average through 2015.

The largest and most advanced industrial valve industries are typically located in developed nations. China, however, is the one key exception to this rule, with the country being the world’s largest valve producing nation in 2010 and accounting for 20 percent of global shipments. Germany, the US, Japan and Italy together accounted for an additional 44 percent of global valve shipments in 2010 on a value basis. Other important producers include France, the United Kingdom, Russia and Taiwan.

Oil, gas industry to see strong gains in demand

The oil and gas industry will see strong growth in valve demand, with increasing offshore, shale and tar sand related exploration activities helping boost sales of higher-end products. Among the countries that will record robust increases in the unconventional oil and gas sector are Brazil, Canada, Nigeria and the US. The nuclear power market for valves will see weak gains in the developed world in the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan. Weakness in the nuclear power generation sector will be offset by increasing valve sales to coal-fired and combined cycle natural gas power plants.

Automatic valves to outpace conventional types

The global market for automatic valves will outpace that for conventional valves, due to the continuing efforts of process manufacturers to improve operational efficiencies. The strongest gains will be registered in sales of separately sold automatic actuators, which are used together with standard valves to allow for automated valve functions, and are less expensive than automatic control and regulator valves with actuators preinstalled. Nevertheless, conventional valves will dominate world valve demand in 2015, with suppliers benefiting from the lower cost of these products relative to highly engineered automatic valves.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $71.8 billion world industrial valve industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by valve type (e.g., standard multiturn, quarter turn, automatic control, automatic regulator, automatic actuator), world region and for 34 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structures, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry competitors, including Cameron International, Tyco International and Emerson Electric.
