Valve Controller Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2020–2030

Status : May, 2021 | Semiconductor & Electronics

Report Digest

Valves are commonly used in a wide range of applications that are a part of processes such as wastewater treatment, chemical treatment, water cooling, feed water, and turbine control processes. Industry 4.0 is a trend that has intensified the importance of automation and efficient monitoring of processes, and this is triggering the use of valve controllers in nearly all the areas where valves are used.

The valve controller market is expected to witness healthy growth mainly due to its vast application range and high demand in various end-use industries such as chemical, oil & gas, food & beverage, water & wastewater treatment, and pharmaceutical. Manufacturers today, are investing heavily in technology to deliver state-of-the-art control mechanisms in valve controllers in order to cater to the end users’ demand for technologically advanced products.

Heightened Importance of Smart Process Control will Spur Sales

Most industries today are witnessing a complex network of interdependent and interlinked processes followed throughout the production cycles. Most of these applications involve the use of valves to carry out those processes, which must be monitored and synchronized with the utmost efficiency. Thereby, valve controllers are becoming an integral part of the processes that ensure high efficiency and accuracy.

Furthermore, most industrial areas are moving towards the adoption of process automation mechanisms, and this is triggering the demand for smart valve controllers that are integrated with high-tech features. Manufacturers in the valve controller market are introducing smart process control mechanisms that can measure and monitor various parameters such as temperature, fluid flow, and pressure through valve controllers. This trend is expected to grow enormously in the coming years, triggering the growth of the valve controller market.

Manufacturing Challenges Triggered by the Absence of Standards and Quality Norms

The valve controller market is a space with unorganized structure of governmental policies and regulations for quality and standards. Manufacturers need to keep abreast of different laws and norms in different geographical areas to cater to those particular market needs. This does not only diversify the end-user demand in terms of the features of valve controllers in different markets, but it also adds to their cost of manufacturing.

Diversity in regional policies about quality standards also enforces manufacturers to amend some product specifications, and this may also hinder players from achieving low installation costs. Due to the absence of clear, omnipresent regulations and standards, manufacturers are forced to invest more heavily in additional resources in order to set up manufacturing capabilities around the world for ensuring better compliance to regional norms.

Digital Valve Controllers High in Demand; Open New Opportunities for Innovation

With the rising trend of Industry 4.0, a mounting number of industries undergoing digital transformation and the demand for technologically advanced and high performance process components has spiralled dramatically. This is one of the leading factors that are contributing to the transition from conventional, analogue valve controllers to their digital, high-tech counterparts in most application areas.

Apart from being high-tech and next-generation in their features, digital valve controllers also bring to the table some unique advantages such as high reliability, accuracy, efficiency, and convenience over traditional valve controllers. Manufacturers are introducing smart valve controllers that can be connected to various other monitoring devices and makes the integration simpler while synchronizing all processes more efficiently.

APAC Proves Lucrative; Manufacturers Target Fast-growing End-use Industries

Asia Pacific is home to a wide range of industries including chemical, oil & gas, power & energy, water & wastewater treatment, and food & beverage. Presence of a huge number of manufacturers and suppliers in the area makes it an attractive market for valve controllers, and this is attributed for its positive growth prospects in the global markets. Growing pace of industrial operations in the Asia Pacific region is one of the prominent factors that contribute to the positive growth of the valve controller market in the region.
