Market Overview

The global flow control market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.56% over the forecast period (2022-2027). Flow control solutions govern liquid and gas flow and pressure. The market is growing due to rising product demand from end-use sectors such as oil & gas, electricity, and construction. Flow control solutions are applicable for vertical, deviated, and horizontal completions and are suitable for inflow optimization and production maximization.

  • The market for flow control solutions is also rising due to the growing trend of industrial automation across various industries. An increasing number of power-producing units, and rising power consumption in developing nations, are boosting market expansion.
  • IoT solutions lower the cost of equipment operations while also lowering the danger of fatalities. Maintenance and repair specialists, for instance, seldom forecast equipment failure before the introduction of small smart sensors and only realized there was an issue when seen, which resulted in a substantial amount of time wasted on procurement (waiting for spare parts to arrive), disruption of several business processes, and a major drop in production efficiency. Oil and gas industries may now foresee and avoid problems utilizing IoT capabilities.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic significantly impacted industrial sectors such as oil and gas, chemicals, power, metals, and mining. As a result, demand for the goods produced by these industries declined. The market, however, significantly increased in various industrial sectors serving the pharmaceutical, energy, and utility applications. Additionally, the pandemic dramatically accelerated industrial automation, leading to a surge in product innovations.
  • For instance, in February 2022, Circor International, Inc. launched the CIR 3100 control valve, a new valve body with a variety of internal options for a wide range of general, critical, and severe applications, including oil and gas, power generation, processing industries, maritime, and renewables.
  • Valve makers must follow several standards and rules. When it comes to valves, different locations have distinct certifications and policies. As valves are used in many industries, such as oil & gas, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, energy & power, water & wastewater treatment, building & construction, chemicals, and pulp & paper, demand is diverse. However, such variation impedes the valves market's growth because manufacturers must adopt the same product to regional policies, making it difficult for valve makers to obtain an ideal installation cost.

Key Market Trends

Oil and Gas Industry is Analyzed to Hold Major Share

  • In the oil and gas industry, the smallest leakages could cause a disaster; flow control plays a critical role in safeguarding plants from catastrophe and maximizing the production of the different products. Valves play a crucial role in the flow control of the processes. The oil and gas industry is expected to dominate the end-user market. Treatment, production, distribution, and processing of hydrocarbon fluids and gases are part of the oil and gas sector—the market benefits from the rising demand for petrol and diesel in developed economies. The market is also expanding due to the rising population and increased use of passenger automobiles and cooking gas. Flow controls are utilized in various oil and gas applications, including upstream production, pipeline detection, and gas processing.
  • Schlumberger announced in March 2022 that Saudi Aramco had awarded it a substantial contract for integrated drilling and well-building services in a gas drilling project. Drilling rigs, technologies, and services, such as drill bits, measurement while drilling (MWD) and logging while drilling (LWD), drilling fluids, cementing, and completing wells, are all included in the integrated project scope. Schlumberger will use digital solutions to improve integrated drilling performance, such as the DrillOps on-target well delivery solution, which employs data analysis, learning systems, and automation to execute a digital well plan, resulting in increased drilling efficiency, consistency, and performance.
  • In January 2022, Indian Oil Corp. Ltd. (IOCL) announced plans to invest INR 7,000 crore in its city gas distribution (CGD) business. Indian Oil Corp (IOC) announced an INR 1 lakh crore investment in August 2021 to nearly triple its refining capacity over the next 4-5 years.
  • In April 2022, the Japan Ministry of Oil and Gas stated that country plans to step up its investment role in upstream projects for liquefied natural gas (LNG) to spur new development and boost fuel offtake by its companies. 
  • Further, A different set of flow control requirements are needed for each kind of power generation application. That so, a power plant's particular pipeline system may contain a wide variety of valves. Industrial valves for power plants also need to play diverse roles depending on the operations occurring in a specific area of the pipe system. In nuclear power plants, control valves are frequently employed to control fluid flux, and the principal circuit of one nuclear power plant contains more than 1500 control valves.
Flow Control Market Share

Asia Pacific is Expected to Register the Fastest Growth Rate

  • In the market for flow control, Asia Pacific will emerge as a major region. Rapid industrialization is increasing market growth in rising economies such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The industry is being propelled forward by the region's growing manufacturing sector and the increasing use of oil and gas. China plans to extend its giant gas pipeline grids to 163,000 kilometers by 2025, necessitating a USD1.9 trillion investment.
  • IBEF states that India is anticipated to contribute to global non-OECD petroleum consumption growth significantly. Crude oil imports increased dramatically from USD 70.72 billion in FY17 to USD 94.3 billion in FY22 (April to January). India's oil refining capacity was 248.9 million metric tonnes per annum (MMTPA) on September 1, 2021, making it Asia's second-largest refiner. Private businesses controlled about 35% of the total refining capacity. With a capacity of 69.7 MMTPA, IOC is the largest domestic refiner.
  • In January 2022, Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL), a joint venture between the Adani Group and TotalEnergies, acquired permits to expand its City Gas Distribution (CGD) network to 14 new geographical areas with an investment of INR 20,000 crore.
  • In September 2021, SK E&S, the natural gas arm of South Korean refiner and energy conglomerate SK, set a target of producing 280,000 t/yr of mostly blue hydrogen, supplying 10 million t/yr of eco-friendly LNG, and operating 7GW of renewable energy by 2025, as part of a plan to increase the company's value fivefold to KRW 35 trillion.
  • Moreover, the significant demand from the power sector is also a driving factor for the market. For instance, in 2021, China generated 8.11 trillion kilowatt-hours (KWh), an increase of 8.1 percent from the previous year. (National Bureau of Statistics (NBS))
