1.1 Definition and scope of study

Valves are mechanical devices designed to control the flow of a fluid in either the liquid or gaseous phase. There are several types of valves:

  • Shut-off valves,
  • Regulating valves,
  • Special valves.

The global industrial valves market size is expected to reach $107,356.7 million in 2027, from $86,202.7 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2020 to 2027.

The Italian valve industry maintains a leadership position in the European market, which is worth nearly a decade of billions of euros. One in three of the valves produced in the EU is "made in Italy", placing the country in first place in the European ranking, followed by Germany (27%) and the United Kingdom (8%).

The market experienced a period of difficulty between 2014 and 2017. In fact, overall EBITDA (as a percentage of total sales) in 2017 decreased by 8 percentage points compared to 2014. In 2018, however, the picture improved, with a 6% expansion of the global market. The Italian supply chain was able to recover mainly thanks to exports, which account for 65% of its sales.

Covid had heavy consequences for the sector, which, however, being mainly based on long-term projects maintains positive forecasts for the future.

Key players in the market include AVK Holding A/S, Avcon Controls Private Limited, Schlumberger Limited, Crane Co, Emerson Electric Co, Flowserve Corporation, Forbes Marshall, IMI plc, Metso Corporation and The Weir Group plc.
