Flowing steadily: Revenue growth will pick up, driven by more customization and construction demand

Since valves are essential components in a vast range of manufacturing and industrial processes, industry performance tends to follow in line with overall economic conditions, both domestic and global. In particular, valve sales are driven by demand from oil and gas extraction and distribution, heavy manufacturing and waterworks (water supply and wastewater treatment). For most of the five-year period, strong performance in these key markets boosted demand for industry products, but deteriorating demand from several key markets over the latter half of the five-year period has negatively affected industry performance. Accordingly, revenue is anticipated to grow at a subdued annualized rate over the five years to 2018. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to grow...read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Deteriorating demand from key markets during the latter half of the five-year period negatively affected industry performance
  • Rapidly growing investments in unconventional oil production have revitalized demand for domestically produced valves
  • Demand for industrial valves from petroleum and gas production will prop up industry revenue
  • Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

    Valve manufacturers have experienced considerable revenue volatility over the five years to 2018, driven by highly cyclical demand for industry products from a small number of key markets. Typically, demand for valves is linked to global industrial production activity as valves are an integral component in many manufacturing processes, particularly chemical, pharmaceutical and industrial gas manufacturing. More broadly, valves have applications in domestic and foreign markets ranging from petroleum refining and distribution to residential renovation and wastewater treatment. Accordingly, commodity prices and industrial activity are the two most salient barometers of industry performance next to currency valuations...purchase to read more.
