Asia-Pacific (APAC) has the largest control valves market
The APAC control valves market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% and 7.5% in terms of volume and value, respectively, during 2018–2023. The high demand for such valves is driven by its growing penetration in the different industries. Partnerships and client wins are some of the major developments which will further boost the market. For instance, in 2017, Metso Corporation announced that it received four major valve orders from the oil and gas industry. The orders include approximately 2,500 Neles ball, segment, and butterfly valves which are used in different processes such as coal gasification and ethylene cracking.
Discovery of new reserves in the APAC region is expected to create immense opportunities
Due to the advancement in exploration technology, new reserves of oil and gas have been found in different countries in APAC region, such as China and Thailand. These discoveries will lead to the increased exploration and production activities, which in turn, will lead to the increased usage of controlling valves. This is attributed to the fact that the new oil and gas facilities will be setup to extract the crude oil. Also, the producers are increasing the production capacities of oil and gas facilities in the region. Hence, these factors are expected to create ample opportunities for the growth of the control valves market.
