Control Valve Market is Expected to Reach US$ 13.93 Billion by 2027

The increasing demand from process industry such as oil & gas, chemical, pharmaceuticals and others will proliferated the growth of the control valve market over the forecast period.

The global control valve market was valued at US $5.5 Bn in 2020 and expected to reach US $13.93 Bn by 2027 and is expanding at a CAGR of 14.20% during the forecast period

With the increasing spread of COVID-19, the healthcare and pharmaceuticals industries are at the forefront of combating the pandemic. This has resulted in abrupt demand for medical supplies and equipment which are used to treat COVID-19 affected population. Control valves play a vital role in the manufacturing of various types of medical devices, and several market players have grabbed the opportunity to contribute to the fight against the pandemic.

Control valve manufacturers are focused towards offering a required set of components across the pharmaceutical industry value chain and spending on the R&D activities. Similarly, pharmaceutical companies are looking to develop sophisticated fluid handling systems, such as automatic sanitizer dispensers and liquid soap dispensers, which, in turn, are creating the need for valves. Thus, the growing production of healthcare devices and increasing R&D investments in the pharmaceuticals sector will positively influence the market growth.

Moreover, growing number of oil & gas exploration activities in regions such as the Middle East & Africa, China, and North America are expected to boost the demand for control valve in coming years. For instance, the second largest offshore oil field in the world is operated by the Zakum Development Company (ZADCO) - a joint venture of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), ExxonMobil, and the Japan Oil Development Company (Jodco). The field is located off the coast of Abu Dhabi, and is estimated to hold around 50 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

Additionally, stringent regulations by the government bodies to protect the environment from the process industry is an influencing factor for the growth of the control valve market. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated the use of traditional spring diaphragm actuators, which are used to actuate valves at the wellhead, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The regulatory body suggested replacing it with electric actuators with pneumatic devices, which can help to reduce methane and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions.

Water & wastewater treatment is a fastest growing segment owing to its demand for industrial as well as residential areas. Water & wastewater industry includes application processes, such as supply of water for manufacturing processes and simultaneously treatment of wastewater generated by industry. As per our research in 2019, around 90,000 municipal wastewater plants accounted to invest USD 4.50 Bn on valves, which is further expected to propel the growth of this segment.
