Actuators and Valves Market Overview:
Actuators and Valves Market is anticipated to register a CAGR of 6.3% to attain a market size of around $125 billion by 2022. Actuators & valves are used to control and direct the flow of fluids through pipelines used in wastewater treatment plants, power plants, refineries, mining & nuclear processes, and food factories.
They are one of the most essential mechanisms in manufacturing and processing industries, which not only control the flow but also the rate, volume, pressure, or the direction of fluids. In addition, they play a major role in applications such as oil & gas, paper & pulp, energy & power, automotive, chemical, iron & steel, and construction.
Fast growing manufacturing and processing industry sector, safety assurance, and less requirement of manual handling have further supported the growth of global valves & actuators market.
These are highly effective and safe as compared to other controlling techniques due to their compact size and ability to regulate fluids without continuous human observation. However, high maintenance cost and laborious installation in certain conditions are expected to limit the market growth. Technological advancements in the actuators & valves technology and decline in prices are anticipated to provide potential growth opportunities for the market.
The global actuators & valves market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and geography.
Global Actuators & Valves Segmentation
By actuator type, electric actuators dominate the overall market due to high-precision control positioning. Moreover, by valves type, quarter-turn valves contribute maximum share in revenue generation. Among various applications, oil & gas segment dominated the global market due to need of remotely or automatically opening or closing of valves for emergency shutdown of oil & gas flow, protecting equipment, and personnel from over-pressurization.
Growth in water and wastewater treatment industry
Water is undeniably critical for human health and the economic strength of countries through agriculture and industry. Water consumption and pollution have increased owing to rise in population, environmental deprivation, and economic development. The water and wastewater treatment industry primarily water treatment, effluent treatment plant (ETP), sewage treatment plant (STP), and water recycling. In addition, companies implement zero liquid discharge (ZLD) system-an advanced technology to refine and recycle the wastewater produced. Valves & actuators are widely used in these industries to control and guide the flow of water.
Lack of product differentiation
The basic design and structure of various valves & actuators have not been changed in the past few years. In addition, there are several players in the market, which provide same products as that of established products at low prices, forcing established players to differentiate their product offerings from those manufactured by local players. Therefore, lack of product differentiation limits the growth of the market.
Asia-Pacific is Expected to be the Most Lucrative Market
Asia-Pacific actuators & valves market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR owing to rise in exploration and production of oil & gas. Large-scale adoption of the actuators & valves in the latest range of applications such as water & wastewater treatment and food & beverages has fueled the market growth. Furthermore, the presence of various key companies has catalyzed the growth of the market.
