Industrial valves are of various types such as Gate Valves, Globe Valves, Ball Valves, Butterfly Valves, Check Valves, Pressure Valves, and Diaphragm Valves etc. These valves perform various functions working on a different working principle.
An industrial valve is a mechanism designed to close or control the flow in an installation. Depending on the function, the valves can be divided into: shut-off valves (close the pipeline tight), control valves, distribution valves, check valves (protect against backflow), safety valves (protect installations against excessive pressure).
The global industrial valve market is expected to reach a size of USD 68,324.43 million in 2018, and USD 88,585.74 million by 2023, at an estimated CAGR of 5.33%, during the forecast period (2018-2023). The market is majorly driven by factors such as growing demand from the power industry, increase in demand for desalination activity, and increase in demand from the chemicals industry.
India industrial valves market is projected to grow from $ 1.4 billion in 2017 to nearly $ 2.2 billion by 2023, on the back of rising energy demand and rapid expansion in oil & gas pipelines across the country. Growing mergers & acquisitions, rising potential of replacement industrial valves market, and increasing number of water & wastewater management plants coupled with growing natural gas consumption are some of the other factors that would aid the market growth during forecast period.
