Industrial Valves Market (By Material Type: Cast Iron, Steel, Alloy-Based, and Others; By Valve Type; By Application) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Regional Outlook and Forecast 2021 - 2028

Published Date : Jun 2021 | No. of Pages : 150+ Pages | Category : Construction and Manufacturing

The global industrial valves market size is predicted to be worth around $107.4 billion in 2028, from $86.3 billion in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2021 to 2028. Industrial valves are used in process industries for direction, regulation, and control of gases, slurries, liquids, vapors, and others. Industrial valves are mainly manufactured using carbon steel, cast iron, stainless steel, and other high functioning metal alloys to obtain efficient flow control in industries such as water &waste water, oil & power, food & beverages, chemicals, and others. Moreover, a valve mainly consists of a main body, a stem, and a seat that are generally manufactured using different materials including polymers, rubber, metals, and others to avoid wastage of liquid flowing through the valve. Valves are mainly differentiated by their operating mechanisms. The most widely used valves in industries are globe valves, butterfly valves, ball valves, gate vales, plug valves, pinch valves, diaphragm valves, and check valves. 

Automation in control valves has made major advancements, owing to growing emphasis on precise positioning and automation of industrial valves. Control valves include the use of a valve positioner, which converts electrical signals to pneumatics signals to control the actuator of the valve. Thus, the automation in the valve positioner offers more efficiency, reduced energy consumption, and more reliability, which in turn drives the growth of the industrial valves market globally. Furthermore, the oil & gas industry is the largest consumer of industrial valves globally, and includes the use of industrial valves in downstream, midstream, and upstream process applications. Rise in demand for industrial valves in North America boosts the need for importing industrial valves from other countries; thereby, driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the food & beverages processing industry is largely saturated in the developed countries, including the European Union countries, the U.S., and China. However, the rise in demand for food from developing nations such as Brazil, India, and others boosts the agriculture industry, which in turn fuels the growth of the food & beverage processing industry. This is further expected to drive the demand for industrial valves; thereby, fostering the growth of the industrial valves industry.

However, the U.S.  administration increased the tariffs on derivative aluminum and steel imports, effective from February 8, 2020. This hike includes 25% surge on steel and 10% surge on aluminum imports, which has negatively affected the U.S. manufacturing sector. Although the tariff is aimed at gaining more revenues from imports, the global trade for industrial valves has been affected negatively. Industrial valves manufacturing utilizes steel on a large scale, and the tariff on steel is anticipated to hinder the growth of the market. 

COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production and sales of various products in the industrial valves industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries including the U.S., Italy, the UK, and others. This has hampered the growth of industrial valves market significantly within the last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020.

On the contrary, the integration of artificial intelligence and internet of things (IoT) in manufacturing processes under the “Industry 4.0” up gradation is anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the market globally.


Oil & gas is one of the key industries that utilize a valve. The oil & gas sector has been seriously affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, with oil prices crashing like never before. Major oil companies run out of storage space for produced oil, and demand is on a downward trend.

The water & wastewater treatment and energy & power industries sectors are also facing a decline in demand for the industrial valve. There is a limitation on foreign trades to take precautionary measures for public health and safety due to the closure of international borders, non-operational distribution networks, and various government regulations. Nevertheless, due to the increase in people's desire for a healthier and safer lifestyle, there is expected to be a growing emphasis on hygiene and sanitation.

Report Highlights

The on-off / isolation valves hold the largest industrial valve market share in 2025, due to their ability to meet strict shut-off criteria across different industries.  The on-off / isolation valves are one of the most important and essential elements of modern society. The on-off / isolation valves are used in practically all manufacturing processes and every energy generation and supply network.

In 2019, industrial steel valves held the largest market share. The rising demand for high-quality industrial valves in food & beverages, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and metals & mining industries to mitigate the contamination threat currently drives demand for industrial steel valves.

Based on the region, North America is expected to hold the largest industrial valve market share. North America is a major industrial valve market, with some of the largest multinational companies in the world, including Emerson (US), Cameron-Schlumberger (US), Flowserve Corporation (US), Crane Co. (US). One of the key factors driving the North American market is the growing R&D activities in the area related to the use of actuators in the valves for automation and the rising demand for safety applications. Increasing demand for industrial valves in North America is increasing the need to import industrial valves from other countries, thereby driving the market growth.
