Control Valves Market Size 2020 to 2027

Control Valves Market Overview 

With investment towards infrastructural expansion, including wastewater treatment plants and other sectors, reaching all-time high, the demand for control valves is set to increase at 9.71% CAGR between 2021 and 2027. Thanks to recent technological advancements that work in tandem with control valves, application will continue surging across pharmaceutical, mining, chemicals and other sectors. 

Process plants usually comprise a multitude of loops designed to mechanically control process variables such as temperature, pressure, and flow. Control valves are relied upon to manipulate the flow of liquid, ascertaining efficiency in operation across process plants by reducing their downtime. 

Smarter Control Valves Making Deeper Inroads

Amidst surging demand for power generation and focus on oil & gas exploration, control valve technology has emerged as an ideal solution for helping industries overcome common operational challenges that create cost burden.. Innovations such as integration of sensors and digitization have made control valves smarter. 

Some of these protocols have played pivotal role in the technology evolution of control valves and Precedence Research sees this as a splendid opportunity for market players to capitalize on. Despite linear investment opportunities, digital innovations are sought-after as industries focus on achieving real-time improvements. 

To set these developments on track, several organizations are integrating smarter external software to support intelligent control valve positioners.

Opportunities for Automation 

Modern industries face a myriad of economical, environmental, and competitive challenges. To counter these, several leading organizations have been investing in state-of-the-art equipment. This trend is not only making its presence felt in the control valve market, but is expected to set path for expansion over the assessment period. 

While conventional physical control valves have altered little over the years. Technology integrated in these valves have become significantly advanced. Especially for application in subsea oil and gas, intelligent control systems, in-built with embedded processors and networking capabilities have become imperative. 

Demand for these developments has encouraged some of the leading market players to step up their game. For instance, in 2019, Siemens launched an intelligent and self-optimizing valve, which is connected to the cloud. Several other launches followed, giving tailwinds to overall growth registered by the market.
