Market Overview

The market for solenoid valves is expected to register a CAGR of 4% over the forecast period (2019-2024). North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific witnessed a considerable increase in sustainable energy projects and water treatment initiatives. This lead to an increase in the use of solenoid valve in these regions.

  • In the case of water treatment, desalination activities are increasingly gaining popularity amongst municipalities and industrial sectors, which is creating considerable demand for automation in the sector.
  • The rapidly recovering oil and gas industry is yet another driving factor to the solenoid valves market, globally. Previously withheld projects are increasingly coming into operation, increasing the demand for solenoid valves from the upstream oil and gas sector. For example, out of the seventeen deep-water projects that have been approved over the past eighteen months (as of December 2018), globally, as many as sixteen were previously in queue for construction.
  • However, they were put on hold during the industry down-cycle, as project margins were wrecked by low oil prices and high production costs. Consider the case of BP’s Mad Dog 2. When the cost estimate hit USD 20 billion on BP’s initial Mad Dog 2 spar development, the project was held back. However, when the final investment decision (FID) was eventually reached at in 2017, the plan had been scaled back to a semi sub production unit with over fourteen wells, now costing the producers only a USD 9 billion.

Scope of the Report

Solenoid valves play a key role in the industrial automation sector. Wide product offerings, a large variety of applications, and high penetration of solenoid valves in the market place keep a constant demand for these products, both in terms of replacement components and new installations. Some of the major end-user industries that keep a constant demand for solenoid valves include oil and gas, automotive, food and beverages, and the utility sector.

Key Market Trends

Water Treatment Sector to Gain the Market Share

  • Recent reports from the International Desalination Association (IDA) and Global Water Intelligence (GWI) indicate that the industrial desalination market grew by 21% in contracted capacity, between 2016 to 2017. 
  • This has resulted in an increased emphasis on water automation, owing to which several companies, such as Rockwell Automation Inc., GE Power Conversion have been investing in automation for water treatment. This factor stimulates the use of solenoid valves in the water treatment process.
  • Besides, there has been growing support for water treatment and infrastructure by regulating bodies across the world. Therefore, water treatment application is expected to proliferate the market growth.

Competitive Landscape

The market for solenoid valves is less concentrated. In the current market scenario, there is a considerable consolidation amongst top players in the market. Acquisitions, such as ABB of General Electric Industrial Solutions and Emerson Electric Co of Aventics, have strengthened several vendors to strengthen their market position as suppliers of several industrial automation solutions, including solenoid valves.

  • Apr 2019 - Eaton launched a compact, simplified solenoid valve to increase the accuracy of off-highway vehicles’ fluid control. The new five-way, three-position proportional ESVL9 screw-in cartridge valve (SiCV) features an integrated load-sense check control and provides a 21% manifold reduction in size compared with other five-ported directional control valves in the market
  • Feb 2019 - IMI Buschjost presented dust collector valve portfolio at Powtech 2019, which offers numerous advantages to its users: The high-quality valves stand out due to their long service life and maintenance intervals. They withstand high operating pressures and are efficient due to their extremely quick opening and closing times.
