The global actuators & valves market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2030. Actuators and valves are utilized in a variety of sectors to control and direct the flow of fluids during a variety of processes. By opening, closing, or partially obstructing numerous tubes, a valve regulates or controls the flow of a fluid (gases, liquids, or slurries). An actuator is a machine component responsible for adjusting or moving a valve. As the location of the plug or disc of the valve is altered by the force of actuators, the valve regulates the rate of fluid flow. Actuators and valves are utilized in numerous industries, including water and wastewater treatment, food and beverage, oil and gas, refining, paper and pulp, mining, chemical, healthcare, maritime, and energy. In addition, the usage of technologically improved processing methods is anticipated to transform the market outlook for actuators and valves. As a result of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to experience a rapid expansion in the near future. Changes in environmental standards and the number of new product launches also contribute to the expansion of the actuators & valves market. However, the absence of product differentiation hinders market expansion. Moreover, the rising utilization of robots offers significant business potential.
Pneumatic Actuators Dominate the Market by System
By system, the market for industrial actuators is divided into mechanical, electric, pneumatic, and hydraulic subsegments. The pneumatic actuators market is driven by its widespread use in mining and extraction, energy and power, chemical, and oil and gas industries. These are utilized in the food and beverage industry as well. Due to the extensive use of water and other conductive fluids on the manufacturing floor, many sectors avoid employing electric actuators.
O&G Remains the Dominant End User
Due to its substantial use in natural gas generation, crude oil extraction, and refining operations, the oil and gas industry accounted for the largest portion of market revenues in 2021. In addition, due to the rising stringency of safety standards, approximately 10% of installed valves are changed annually. The water and wastewater business encompasses application activities such as the provision of water for industrial purposes and the treatment of industrial effluent. This is anticipated to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.
Ball Valves to Dominate During the Forecast Period
The industrial valves segment is projected to be dominated by ball valves over the forecast period of 2022 to 2030. These are favored for steam and condensate applications and are therefore widely used in the energy and power industry. Their restricted maximum pressure rating and inability to function in extremely high-pressure environments is the only factor limiting their demand.
Linear Actuators to Dominate the Industrial Actuators Segment
The market for industrial actuators is anticipated to be dominated by linear actuators, with a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period. This is due to the increasing demand for combustion control, enhanced efficiency, and decreased production costs. In addition to stringent environmental rules and rising industrial automation in emerging nations, stringent environmental regulations are anticipated to stimulate demand for the same.
APAC Remains as the Global Leader
In 2021, Asia-Pacific held the highest market share for industrial valves and actuators. This is because major growing economies such as China and India are investing extensively in valve manufacture to meet the rising demand in industries such as water and wastewater, food and beverage, energy and electricity, and others. Over the projection period, the Middle East and Africa are anticipated to grow at the second-fastest rate, 4.5% annually. In North America, the U.S. dominated the market due to the wide range of applications in industries including chemical, oil and gas, energy and electricity, water and wastewater, and food and beverage.
Market Competition to Intensify during the Forecast Period
The market is highly fragmented due to the presence of numerous small and medium-sized firms. In order to maintain their market share in such a price-sensitive industry, businesses have consistently engaged in strategic efforts such as mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, product launches, and collaborations. This is intended to grow their worldwide and regional presence and offers an expanded product assortment to their customer base. Emerson Electric Co., Flowserve Corporation, IMI plc, Alfa Laval AB, AVK Holding A/S, Eaton, Honeywell International, Inc., Velan, Inc., ValvitaliaSpA and Others. are prominent industry participants. These players have made substantial investments in research and development to develop novel solutions and achieve a competitive advantage.
