Pressure Relief Valves Market Research: 2031

The Global Pressure Relief Valves Market Size was valued at $4.4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2022 to 2031.Pressure relief valve (PRV) is also called as a relief valve. Pressure vessels and other equipment are protected by pressure relief valve from being subjected to pressures that exceed their design limits. The valve is used to control or limit the pressure built inside the equipment which may cause equipment or instrument failure, or fire. The pressure is relieved by allowing the pressurized fluid to flow from an auxiliary passage out of the system.

Market Dynamics

Pressure relief valve are used in the oil & gas industry for drilling and workover operations, which, in turn, increase demand for pressure relief valve, and is anticipated to boost growth of the pressure relief valve market. According to a report on North America Midstream Infrastructure through 2035 published in June 2018 by ICF International Inc., total investments in oil & gas infrastructure are projected to range between $685 billion and $895 billion from 2018 to 2035.

In addition, pharmaceuticals and food & beverages industries are largely saturated in developing countries including European Union, such as the U.S. and China. Pressure relief valve have an important role in manufacturing of different types of medical devices and support key players to give opportunity during this pandemic situation. For instance, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the food & beverage processing industry has emerged as a high-profit and high-growth sector, owing to its immense growth potential.

Moreover, rise in number of industrial infrastructure projects in developing countries is driving the demand of pressure relief valves market. For instance, the government of China spent $10 billion on a new oil & gas refinery project, Guangdong refinery, which is expected to be completed by March 2022. Such instances are expected to drive the growth of the market. There are many domestic manufacturers present in places, which is expected to hamper growth of the pressure relief valve market. Domestic manufacturers provide pressure relief valve ranging from $100 to $200.

However, key players offer pressure relief valve ranging from $100 to $2500. Hence, customer focuses more on adopting pressure relief valve from domestic manufacturers, which, in turn, hinders the pressure relief valves industry growth.

The demand for pressure relief valve decreased in the year 2020, owing to low demand from different regions due to lockdown imposed by the government of many countries. The COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down production of pressure relief valve for the end-user, mainly owing to prolonged lockdowns in major global countries.

This has hampered the growth of the pressure relief valve market significantly during the pandemic. The major demand for pressure relief valve was previously noticed from giant manufacturing countries including China, U.S., Germany, Italy, and the UK which was badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting demand for pressure relief valve. This is expected to lead to re-initiation of manufacturing industry at their full-scale capacities, which is likely to help the pressure relief valve market to recover by end of 2022.

Pressure Relief valves Market by ValveType

Emerging economies such as the India, China, and Egypt, are investing more in hydrocarbon projects, to produce more oil & gas exploration, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for growth of the pressure relief valve market. Rise in demand for oil & other energy and renewable resources is anticipated to drive growth of the pressure relief valve market. The government of Egypt invested around $2.5 billion in construction of a new oil refinery project to process hydrocarbons. All such instances are anticipated to provides lucrative opportunities for the pressure relief valves market growth.
