“The U.S. Industrial Gas Regulator Market, By Application (Oil & Gas, Chemical , Steel & Metal Processing, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, and Others) by Gas Type (Inert, Toxic and Corrosive), by Regulator Type (Single Stage and Dual Stage) - Global Forecast to 2027”, is expected to be valued at US$ 3307.4 Million by 2027, witnessing a CAGR of 3.0 % during the forecast period (2019-2027), as highlighted in a report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Gas regulator is the apparatus used for regulating and controlling inlet pressure to constant outlet pressure. Generally, gas regulators are comprised of a separate pressure sensor with the controller and flow valve. However, it can also be comprised of an integrated device with an output pressure setting, a restrictor, and a sensor. These gas regulators are used in various industries including oil & natural gas, chemicals, gas pipelines, power generation, etc.
The U.S. industrial gas regulator market is estimated to account for US$ 2,613.7 Mn in terms of value in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.0 % over the forecasted period 2019-27. Market Driver
High growth of food and beverage industry is expected to boost the U.S. industrial gas regulator market growth during the forecast period
Food and beverage sector in the U.S. has witnessed significant growth in the recent past, owing to growing population, increasing urbanization, and high demand for food products. According to the Committee for Economic Development (CED), the annual food sector sales are around US$ 1.4 trillion, of which food and beverage industry generate around US$ 164 billion. Constant introduction of novel food and beverage products in the market is increasing the demand for improved gas regulators. Industrial gas regulators play a key role in food and beverage industry in controlling natural gas for boilers, controlling CO2 for beverages, etc. Thus, high growth of the food and beverage industry in the U.S. is expected to support growth of the U.S. industrial gas regulator market during the forecast period.
Constant growth of industrial infrastructure can present major growth opportunities
Industrial infrastructures such as gas pipelines, bridges, highways, oil & rig refineries, roads, roads, and public works’ offices are growing constantly across the nation. Industrial gas regulators find major applications in various industrial infrastructures including natural gas pipelines, oil & rig refiners, etc. This, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for gas regulators across the nation. Key companies in the market are can capitalize on untapped potential by providing innovative products and enhanced aftersales services.
Stringent regulatory scenario related to industrial gas regulators is expected to restrain growth of the U.S. industrial gas regulator market during the forecast period
Since industrial gas regulators have various applications since it has been used in different industries such as oil & gas, automotive, and aerospace, food processing industries. These gas regulators are offered with changing levels of pressure handling capacities associated with the nature of the substances they hold. Hence, manufacturing of gas regulators requires a particular set of standards across industry verticals such as Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) standards for industrial gas regulators. Furthermore, in the U.S., the American Gas Association (AGA) monitors gas regulators norms under the Accredited Standards Committee (ASC).
High growth of the oil & gas sector has significantly influenced energy-dependent industries such as chemicals and power generation. As a result of this, it has increased the demand for pressure control equipment in North America. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the country’s crude oil and lease condensate reserves increased to 39.9 billion barrels in 2014, an increase of 3.4 billion barrels (9.3 %) from 2013. Moreover, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) Annual Energy Outlook 2015, natural gas consumption of the industrial sector will grow at an annual rate of 0.5% through 2020. Moreover, methanol and fertilizers industries are expected to be the primary growth drivers in the regional market.
Various industries across the U.S. are preferring industrial gas regulators fabricated brass. As compared to other materials such as steel, brass-based regulators have smoother internal finishes and smaller internal volumes, which allows maintaining noncorrosive gases with higher purity levels.
Key players operating in the U.S. industrial gas regulators market are GCE Group, Emerson Electric Co., Itron, Inc., The Linde Group, Rotarex S.A., Air Liquide S.A., Honeywell Process Solutions, Praxair Technology, Inc., Cavagna Group S.p.A, and Air Products and Chemicals Inc.
