Valve Positioners Market Dynamics and Trends

The global Valve Positioners are primarily driven by the rising importance of monitoring and controlling the process. The rise in demand for value positioners is due to their accurate and rapid control. Digital valve positioners are gaining large popularity in all industries due to the following advantages such as high reliability and performance, more precise calibration for more accurate control, Advanced diagnostics for predictive maintenance, and Easy setup for reduced commissioning costs. Flow Control states, “A poorly performing $3,000 control valve can cause significant losses because of shutdowns, lost production, reduced efficiency, and unsafe events.” Digital valve positioners help protect against all of these consequences by improving control valve reliability and performance.     

The growing power generation industry all around the globe is the other reason for the valve positioners market to have a positive impact with an increase in the demand for energy across the globe which is creating requirements for more power plants. The power plants carry steam in the pipeline for energy generation to have high efficiency in the process and require valve positioners, and hence the market will grow for Valve Positioners in the forecast period. The rising investments for the construction of new power plants have a promising boost for the valve positioners market.

For instance, Tyr Energy, the U.S. subsidiary of the Japanese energy giant Itochu, began construction on its $863 million Hickory Run Energy Station about five miles west of New Castle. The 1,000-megawatt plant is expected to be operating by April 2020.

However, the lack of standardized norms will be hampering the growth of Valve Positioners in the forecast period.

Valve Positioners Segmentation and Shares Analysis

By Type, the global Valve Positioners market is segmented into electro-Pneumatic, Pneumatic, Digital, and Electric. Pneumatic valve positioners have the dominant position in the Valve Positioners market and are expected to retain their dominance in the forecasted period as they can withstand higher vibrations produced due to high pressure in the pipeline. However, the growth of digital positioners is attributed to the growing adoption of smart solutions in plant operations as they use a microprocessor for positioning the actuator and for keeping track of data; hence, they have excellent diagnostic capabilities. It is expected that PneumaticValve Positioners (RAC)market will grow at a CAGR of ~YY% during the forecast period.

By End-User Industry, the global Valve Positioners market is segmented into Oil & Gas, Water & Wastewater, Power, Food & Beverages, Chemicals, and Others. Oil & gas has the dominant position in the Valve Positioners market due to the rising production and ever-increasing demand for crude oil all around the world. The pipeline pressure for oil wells is monitored and controlled with the help of various valve positioners it is the most crucial part of the exploration of Oil & gas from the wells. Although with the rise in the food & beverages industry, it is expected to grow at a higher CAGR in the forecast period.

Valve Positioners Market Geographical Analysis

By geography, the global Valve Positioners market is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and the Middle East and Africa (MEA).

North America holds the largest market share for Valve Positioners due to the rise in oil & gas exploration in the region. All the major companies such as BP, Shell, EYYon Mobil, Chevron, and Total operate in North America for exploration and production. The usage of digital valve positioners in the oil & gas pipes for monitoring and controlling the pressure. Also, the data produced by the digital valve positioners are used further for predictive maintenance. Increasing demand for Oil & gas all around the world is asking for more production, and hence the production in the region is increasing, and also exploring new sites for exploration will rise the market for valve positioners in the region for the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region for the valve positioner market due to the rising economies coupled with the increase in industries all around Asia-Pacific will be the major drivers of the valve positioner market in the region. With the growing urban population in China, there is a growing discharge of wastewater and hence there is a rise in sewage treatment plants in China asking for rising in the demand for valve positioners. In 2018, according China Statistical Yearbooks has shown that there has been an increase in sewage treatment rates, particularly in larger cities. With 3350 wastewater treatment facilities ranging from super large facilities that can cater to a population of 1 million, to small facilities that cater to smaller populations of less than 100 000. The overall water quality remained low due to the unavailability of wastewater pipelines to connect to the WWTP, asking for a greater number of sewage treatment plants.

Valve Positioners Companies and Competitive Analysis

Key players are adopting strategies such as investing in R&D, new product launches, and expansion in Technology to stand out as strong competitors in the market.

In April 2019, Baelz North America launches IP87 Digital Electro-Pneumatic Valve Positioner. It acts as a digital positioner that works with a pneumatic actuator to correctly set valve positions according to the control signal. This minimizes the effects of friction and other factors that could impact a valve’s performance. It uses a 4–20-mA input and output for both the control and the feedback signal.

In August 2018, SpiraxSarco US has introduced shipping within 4 business days for its Spira-trol™ modular control valves. Actual delivery times since the service’s launch are proving to be much shorter, with over 80% of valves shipping within 48-72 hours of ordering. Both electrically and pneumatically actuated Spira-trol™ valves from ½” – 4”, up to flanged ANSI 150 versions are available for shipping within 4 business days.
