Valve Positioners’ Market Worth

Read Time: 2 mins

According to the new market research report, Valve Positioners Market by Type (Electro-Pneumatic, Pneumatic, Digital), Actuation (Single-Acting, Double-Acting), Industry (Oil & Gas, Power, Water & Wastewater, Chemicals, Food & Beverages), and Geography – Global Forecast to 2024, published by MarketsandMarkets™, the valve positioners market is expected to grow from $1.7 billion in 2019 to $2.2 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3 percent during the forecast period.

The growing importance of control and monitoring in process industries and the increasing demand for valve automation solutions are driving the growth of the industry.

The digital valve positioners possess internal logic based on microprocessors. They use a microprocessor for positioning the actuator and for keeping track of data.

These types of positioners came into valve market around two decades ago; however, they started being used widely due to the current era of automation solutions adopted in the process industry and plants.

The characteristics of digital positioners such as their diagnostics and predictive maintenance capability and economic capital costs support them to show lucrative growth opportunities in the future.

The single action of the control valve can be described as the action in which positioners deliver and exhaust air from single side of the single-acting actuator.

This actuator uses spring force for on and off operation of the actuator. Hence these positioners have simple working operations which make them the more preferably installed type as compared to double-acting positioners.

APAC is estimated to account for the largest share of the market in 2019. The region consists of fast-growing economies such as China and India that have fueled the robust manufacturing industries in respective countries.

Owing to the increase in the urban population in the region, there is a high demand for new and improved wastewater treatment systems. These systems can be improved with the control valve assemblies that have positioners to enhance their working operations.
