Circular Economy Initiatives Spark a Wave of Investments in Digital Positioners

ARC Advisory Group’s research on the Control Valves market shows that end users are demanding more in-depth information about installed control valve performance and health. They also want this information to be easier and more intuitive to access. This trend is leading to increasing investments in digital positioners, which provide end users a window into the health of the valve and the process itself. Control valve suppliers are now embedding artificial intelligence capabilities in their digital valve positioners to provide more advanced warning of impending valve failure.

"The ongoing pandemic and increasing emphasis on digitalization have made many end users aware of the cost benefits of condition monitoring and predictive analysis to avoid downtime and minimize human intervention in and during the process. The increased focus on leveraging pervasive communications networks, cloud storage, and computing capabilities to enable asset management initiatives is increasing the demand for digital positioners amongst end users seeking higher productivity and efficiency," according to David Clayton, Research Director and key author of ARC's Control Valves Market Research Report.
