Valve is a control component in the pipeline transportation system, which can be used to control the flow of various types of fluids such as air, water, steam, various corrosive media, mud, oil, liquid metal and radioactive media. In the pharmaceutical industry, valves also play a big role.
According to statistics, there are currently more than 3000 valve manufacturers in China, which can produce gate valves, throttle valves, ball valves, globe valves, butterfly valves, diaphragm valves, control methods, etc., to meet the requirements and needs of various fields. In the context of the rapid development of pharmaceutical and other industries, the valve market is bound to usher in a good space for development.
In terms of market share, in recent years, with the rise of the brand power of domestic valve companies and the maturity of valve technology, the share of imported valves in the domestic market has gradually declined, and domestic valves have achieved effective substitution.
According to statistics, from January to December 2018, the number of valve imports in China was 1039.97 million sets, down 2.1 percent from the same period last year; from January to December 2018, the amount of valve imports in China was 7328128 thousand US dollars, an increase of 20 percent over the same period last year.
Take control valves as an example. At present, domestic control valve manufacturers are mainly concentrated in Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shanghai. According to relevant information, in 2017, the geographical distribution of the top 50 control valve manufacturers in China, there are 6 in Zhejiang, 4 in Jiangsu and 6 in Shanghai. It can be seen that 1/3 have been localized and the proportion is still rising.
The improvement of domestic valve market share can not be separated from the improvement of valve quality. On January 3, 2019, the Anhui Provincial Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision announced the results of the provincial supervision and inspection of valve products in 2018. It is reported that 10 production enterprises in Hefei, Wuhu, Chizhou and Tongling were randomly selected, 10 groups of samples were randomly selected, 9 groups of samples were qualified, and the sampling qualified rate was 90%.
It is reported that the provincial supervision and spot check is a more comprehensive survey of the product quality of valve manufacturers in Anhui Province, which can basically reflect the current situation of valve product quality in Anhui Province. Visible, domestic valves in terms of quality can basically guarantee, help enterprises to stabilize production.
In terms of valve technology, many valve companies are currently through intelligent control processes, modern precision management, to achieve the depth of integration of information and industrialization of the valve industry, to promote China's valve to better achieve localization.
For example, there are valve companies that invest about 80 million yuan in scientific and technological innovation every year, of which more than 5000 million yuan is invested in research and development alone. During the period, the company also presided over the completion of a number of national scientific research projects, and through technological innovation to make its valve products have the competitiveness of the international market, and promote the progress of the overall technical level of China's control valve industry.
However, in terms of the overall technical level, industry experts believe that because the valve manufacturers are mostly medium and small-scale, most valve companies still need to break the barriers to competition through technological innovation, thereby enhancing the profitability of enterprises. At the same time, enterprises should increase investment in brand channel construction to expand brand penetration.
In the long run, with the increase in industry concentration, the future competition in the valve market is inevitable. For valve companies, only by participating in competition can they have long-term development, and pressure can be continuously broken through. Therefore, valve companies want to achieve better results, but also strong themselves, improve competitiveness, with the product to speak.
