COVID-19 Pandemic Disrupting Automated On-off Valves Market

New ARC Advisory Group research on the global market for industrial on-off valve, actuators, and switchboxes reveals that, with the COVID-19 pandemic causing most global economies to fall into recession, we’re seeing a steep decline in valves and actuators revenues across most major world regions.  ARC expects a gradual market recovery in 2021 with a return to stable growth rates unlikely before 2022 or 2023.  On the positive side, COVID-19-related social distancing mandates are also prompting users to automate more on-off valves to minimize the need for human intervention in plants.  Users are also evaluating implementing newer digital techniques to be able to control and monitor critical valve assets remotely.  Future market performance will depend on how quickly capital investment, government spending, and consumer spending return to more normal rates. 

“On-off valves and actuators growth depends heavily on demand from the process industries, which in turn depend heavily on consumer demand.  The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced demand for many products, especially fuels for transportation and power.  Depressed commodity prices (especially for crude oil and refined products) inhibit further investment in these areas until the normalization of market demand to pre-COVID-19 stage,” according to Sandeep Mukunda, Senior Research Analyst at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s On-off Valves, Actuators, and Switchboxes Global Market Research report.
