COVID Accelerates Adoption of Control Valve Remote Monitoring Services

According to ARC's new control valve market research, the pandemic has heightened the awareness of the need for, and willingness to invest in, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions that allow workers to perform their jobs and collaborate remotely. Although many manufacturing companies were already looking into adopting Industrial IoT solutions, the COVID-19 pandemic pushed many companies who remained “on the fence” to begin actively implementing these solutions. Manufacturers are coming to the realization that secure data storage platforms that enable remote connectivity and enterprise-wide data access are becoming fundamental to optimizing manufacturing operations. As more manufacturing companies invest in these new data storage platforms and connected valves, many of them are also taking a closer look at control valve remote monitoring services offered by many of the major international control valve suppliers.

"End users don’t need more raw data, they need actionable information that allows them to keep operations up and running. End users don’t need another alert that a control valve is operating out of spec, they need to know what they need to do and when they need to do it, to prevent unplanned downtime due to a critical valve failure. Recognizing this, many international valve suppliers have developed remote monitoring services that help remove the burden of valve maintenance from the end users enabling them to focus on their core competencies. ARC anticipates growing adoption of service models such as “Expertise-as-a- Service” (EaaS) in which remote valve monitoring and diagnostics services are bundled to provide options for end users lacking in-house valve experts," according to David Clayton, Senior Research Analyst and key author of ARC's Control Valves Market Research Report.
