Global Valve Positioners Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A valve positioner is a device used to control the position of a valve. It senses the position of the valve and sends an appropriate signal to actuator, which moves the valve to the desired position. This allows for precise control over the flow of fluid through a system. Valve positioners are important because they allow for accurate control over fluid flow, which can be critical in some systems.


Pneumatic components are used in valve positioners to provide the desired force and power. The pneumatic system is made up of valves, diaphragms, pistons, and other parts that create a pressure-driven mechanism for moving parts at high speed.


Valve positioners are used to control the flow of fluid in valve-based devices. They can be used in various applications such as air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines and water pumps among others. Electronic valves are gaining popularity owing to their ability to provide precise control over a wide range of operating conditions along with improved durability and reliability. This is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Application Insights:

The oil and gas application segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017. The global demand for valve positioners in this industry is growing significantly on account of its rapid growth over the past few years. Increasing exploration activities, drilling activities, and production of oil & gas are expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period.

The pharmaceutical manufacturing sector is anticipated to emerge as a prominent segment with a CAGR exceeding 8% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing R&D investments pertaining to new drug development and introduction of technologically advanced products coupled with high quality standards followed by this industry demands specific instrumentation for testing various process parameters throughout all stages of drug development lifecycle such as formulation validation, process control at multiple scales during processing & packaging operations along with providing data that can be used later during analysis phase. These factors are projected to increase market penetration across this sector in near future which will further fuel product demand globally.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for valve positioners from various end-use industries, such as oil and gas, chemical, and pharmaceuticals. In addition, rising investments by major companies in R&D activities are also anticipated to drive the regional market over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific is expected to emerge as a lucrative region for global Valve Positioners Market in near future on account of rapid industrialization and developing economies such as China and India that have been experiencing strong economic growth since past few years. Furthermore, favorable government initiatives aimed at promoting foreign direct investments are also contributing towards increased demand in this region which has led it being called  the factory of the world’s future’ by some prominent speakers including Bill Gates & Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for automation in various industries
  • Rising requirement for precision control of fluid flow in various processes
  • Growing popularity of steam turbines and compressors in various industries
  • Proliferation of smart factories and IIoT across the globe
  • Technological advancements in valve positioners market
