Key Findings

•The total Southeast Asian (SEA) industrial valves and actuators market is in a growth stage. In 2013, the market generated $ x million and had a growth rate of x %. It is expected to experience a CAGR of x % from 2013 to 2018.
•The market is highly dependent on investments being made in oil and gas. Sectors expected to drive growth are power generation, which will spur demand for valves installation, and water and wastewater treatment, which will drive demand for retrofits.
•Within the industrial valves segment, quarter-turn valves, which are in greater demand, had a market share of x %, while control valves held about x % and multi-turn valves about x % in 2013. Ball and butterfly are the most extensively used quarter-turn valves due to their size and reliability.
•The market being extremely fragmented will offer valve and actuator manufacturers high penetration opportunities. Moreover, end users’ focus on greater level of energy efficiency, increased automation, and modernization of plants will also drive demand.
•With the advent of Internet of Things, focus will increase on valve automation, which can facilitate wireless monitoring of valves in remote pipelines and subsea exploration units.
•Indonesia will continue to be the largest market, followed by Malaysia and Thailand, with a wide range of opportunities in the energy and utilities sectors.

CEO’s Perspective

Setting up manufacturing plants locally closer to end users will enable vendors offer greater support thereby penetrating the market further.
Supporting channel partners through training regarding product portfolio and service offering will enhance brand name as indirect sales is the predominant distribution channel.
Suppliers need to focus on delivery time and aftermarket service support to end users to sustain growth.
Wireless monitoring benefit in valves and actuators for end users is expected to drive greater adoption.
Retrofit opportunity is set to grow in select regions where end-user spending is cautious due to political and economic volatility.


A valve is a mechanical device that regulates the flow of either a medium (liquid or gas) or pressure within a system.
•A control valve responds to signals from controllers that compare a set point to a value provided by change-monitoring sensors and adjusts conditions such as flow, pressure, temperature, or liquid level by fully or partially opening or closing.
•A multi-turn valve requires multiple turns of the stem to open or close it. Its types include gate, globe, pinch, diaphragm, and needle valves.
•A quarter-turn valve requires a 90-degree turn of the stem to open or close it. Its types include ball, butterfly, and plug valves. An actuator controls a valve with a motor, piston, or other device.
•A hydraulic actuator uses pressurized liquid—usually water or oil—to automatically or semi-automatically position the valve.
•A pneumatic actuator uses air pressure to operate the valve.
•An electric actuator remotely controls a valve with a reversible motor connected to it through a gear.
