Market outlook of the global butterfly valve market
Technavios market research analysts expect the global butterfly valves market to grow significantly, posting a CAGR of over 6% in the forecast period, which is driven by the booming oil and gas industry in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. The increasing demand from the oil and gas industry will drive the demand for butterfly valve due to an increase in exploration and upgradation activity.
New oil and gas discoveries in the African region is expected to increase its contribution to the global oil supply. Moreover, the growing population, urbanization, and expanding middle class are also boosting the oil and gas industry in Africa. For instance, six out of 10 major discoveries in the global oil and gas industry in 2013 were made in Africa. Therefore, the rising demand for oil and gas has led to widespread exploration activities in Africa, triggering the demand for industrial valves in the region, and thus propelling the growth of the overall butterfly valve market.
