Valve Actuator Market Analysis

Market players are engaged in innovating valve actuators. For example, in February 2021, Siemens announced its latest range of actuators for valves, which provide low-noise operation for automation use. The SSA range of actuators by Siemens was designed for small valve systems (such as central heating controls and water flow). The actuators include IP54 protection for more flexible installation. The actuators have an integrated LED display for status indication, and they utilize feedback signals to the controlling device to create a closed-loop design.

According to Bennett University's blog in May 2022, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) will use actuators to combine mechanical and electrical components in micrometer or millimeter-sized integrated devices or systems. These devices or systems can sense physical stimulus, control a process or system and actuate or drive micro or mega-scale devices. In addition, with the integration of IoT, many sensors and actuators are required for constant monitoring of these devices. Hence, there will be a large requirement for small, low-powered, wireless sensors and smart actuators in the upcoming years, which will drive the Valve Actuator Market during the forecast period.

Valve Actuator Market Overview

An actuator is a component of a device or system that converts energy (generally electrical, air, or hydraulic) into mechanical force. A valve actuator is a component that actuates or moves a valve open or closed. Valve actuators are used in various process plants for the automation of flow control processes. In process control applications, valves regulate fluid flow by opening, shutting, or partially obstructing the fluid flow while managing the pressure. Chemical, mining, oil & gas, power generation, wastewater, and LNG are among the major end users of valve actuators, wherein they are used to control and automate processes. The Valve Actuator Market growth is attributed to factors such as the automation of manufacturing processes, government investments in renewable energy, and flourishment of the oil & gas industry. In addition, the launch of water and wastewater plant construction projects would further drive the market in the coming years.
