The Development Prospect of High Pressure Valve Industry
In China’s current valve market, in addition to low-pressure valve to the international market to accept the level, the high-pressure valve still need to rely on imports. In the macroeconomic continued to be optimistic about the situation, the valve industry, most of the production and sales indicators have maintained a rapid growth, but by the price war, the industry sales revenue and profits fell sharply over the same period last year. With the world economy pick up, China’s import and export of valve products has also increased, but because of high-end technology still have a large gap with foreign manufacturers, compared to the next period of time, product technology will become a control of China’s valve product development bottleneck.
From the product situation, China’s valve industry has been able to produce a dozen categories of products, such as gate valve, globe valve, sanitary ball valve, butterfly valve, safety valve, sanitary check valve, throttle valve, plug valve, Traps, emergency shut-off valve, the maximum temperature is 570 ℃, the lowest is -196 ℃, the maximum pressure is 600MPa, the maximum diameter is 5350 mm. In addition, according to the relevant departments statistics, China’s annual valve market turnover is up to 50 billion yuan, of which more than 100 billion market is occupied by foreign valve enterprises. The sanitary valves are indispensable fluid control equipment for various sectors of the national economy such as oil, chemical industry, power station, long-distance pipeline, shipbuilding, nuclear industry, various low-temperature engineering, aerospace and marine oil production. After years of development, the number of valves in China ranks first in the world, the size of the valve business is about 6,000, of which the annual output value is more than 500 million.
At present, there are still some problems in China’s valve industry, such as China’s valve enterprises mainly are low-level, small-scale, family-based enterprises. In the product, due to repeated investment, the introduction of technology is not enough, China’s leading enterprises in the valve products is still low-quality mass products. At present, various valves are generally exposed, leakage, the appearance of the quality is not high, short life, the operation is not flexible and the valve electric devices and pneumatic devices are not reliable and other shortcomings, some products are equal to the international level, some high temperature and pressure and key devices on the need for valves still rely on imports.
The industrial structure, the valve industry, industrial chain, as well as the degree of specialization of the industry and foreign enterprises there is a large gap between the domestic valve product quality is low because the rapid expansion of the market, the original state-owned enterprises have Shut down and turn, although a number of township enterprises to develop rapidly, but because of the low starting point of township enterprises, technical strength is very weak, poor equipment, most of the products are imitated production, especially for the low pressure valve for drainage problems Does not affect the future prospects of China’s valve industry. This is mainly due to the support of national policy and the strong demand of the valve products market, especially in several century project “West-East”, “West to East”, “South-North Water Diversion” and other projects need a large number of valve products.
In addition, China is facing the arrival of the industrial era, the petrochemical industry, power industry, metallurgical industry, chemical industry and urban construction, such as the use of large valves will enhance the demand for valve products. For example, the power industry, “Eleventh Five-Year” period in the coal-fired units large and medium-sized projects required to predict the total valve: the total demand for valves 153,000 tons, the average annual demand is 30,600 tons; total demand of valve is 3.96 billion yuan. The average annual demand is $ 792 million. In addition, China is gradually becoming the world’s largest processing plant, the valve products processing production is facing greater development space, as long as companies can seize the opportunity to strengthen research and development capabilities, and continuously improve product technology content and product quality.
