Valves are components that regulate manage and direct the flow of liquids, gases, vapors or solid materials by opening, closing or partially obstructing passageways in pipes, valves find wide ranging applications across industries such as oil & gas, energy & power, water and wastewater treatment, pharmaceuticals, and many others. They are extensively used for controlling the flow and pressure of liquids and gases in various industrial processes. Valves help in starting, stopping or regulating fluid flow and help prevent backflow and control the direction of flow. They are installed in machinery, pipes or containers to direct or restrict the flow of liquid, gas or other material that they are designed for. Technological advancements such as development of intelligent valves for efficient flow control in various industrial processes are boosting adoption.
The global Valves Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 83 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.5% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends gaining traction in the valves market is the adoption of intelligent valves. Intelligent valves come with advanced technologies like remote monitoring capabilities, predictive maintenance, and diagnostics which help improve the overall process efficiency. These valves send real-time data about their performance and operations to a central control system. This enables predictive maintenance and reduces downtime. For instance, Emerson’s smart valve positioner Rosemount 3405 continuously monitors valve performance and detects potential issues before failure occurs. Similarly, many players are focusing on development of valves equipped with IoT capabilities to enable remote monitoring and control. Continuous technological advancements in valve design aimed at improving reliability, reducing energy consumption,easy maintenance and commissioning are some other key trends expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.
