The global ball valves market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2015-2020. A ball valve is a quarter-turn spherical closure device used to control the pressure and flow of suspended solids, slurries, liquids or gases in pipelines. The valve is usually manufactured using materials, such as cast iron, stainless steel, brass, bronze, titanium and plastics. It consists of a handle, a perforated, hollow and pivoting ball and is commonly available in full port, reduced port, cavity filler and multiport variants. It is used for bubble-tight applications, low-point drains, high-point vents and cooling water and feedwater systems. As a result, the ball valve finds extensive applications across various industries, including food & beverages, mining, oil and gas, agriculture, water & wastewater treatment, and building & construction.
The global ball valve market is primarily being driven by the increasing product demand from the medical and pharmaceutical industries. The valves are widely used to manufacture medical devices, manage pressure relief in the equipment and sterilize materials. Ball valves are also used in oxygen therapy devices and blood analyzers in hospitals and other healthcare centers, which is also driving their demand. Furthermore, widespread product adoption for water and wastewater treatment is also driving the market growth. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the development of smart valves, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. In line with this, product manufacturers are utilizing 3D printing technologies for producing cost-effective and durable ball valves. Other factors, including the upgradation of existing systems, along with the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in industrial plants, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global ball valves market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
