Analyst’s Review on Cryogenic Control Valve Market
The cryogenic control valve market is observed to experience an increase in demand during 2023 – 2030 due to increasing adoption in various industries wherein storage and supply of low-temperature gases are essential.
Cryogenic valves are specialized valves designed to operate in extremely low-temperature environments, making them particularly suitable for use in companies that handle Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Cryogenic valves are manufactured according to exacting construction specifications to meet stringent industry standards.
These valves are commonly used in the oil & gas industry, where they are frequently exposed to cryogenic temperature ranges that can be as low as -150°C (-238°F). The primary goal of these valves is to ensure that such gases are safely contained during storage and transport, and they are recognized for their capability to operate at very low temperatures as low as -196°C (-320°F), and high-pressure settings of up to 750 psi. The control valve utilized in cryogenic systems is an important component of cryogenic systems designed to sustain and regulate the temperature and pressure conditions of the entire system.
The rising demand for industrial gases can be attributed to their use in critical applications such as healthcare, oil & gas, and aerospace industries, among others. Industrial gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide are used for various operations viz., cooling, cleaning, freezing, and cutting. The expanding scope of applications of industrial gases in various industries, such as food processing, electronics, and semiconductors, is further impelling market growth. Exponential growth in the demand for LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), has propelled the demand for cryogenic control valves owing to their capability of operating under the lowest temperatures. The demand for these gases can also be attributed to the increasing adoption of cleaner gases that emit less amounts of carbon into the atmosphere.
However, one of the factors hindering the growth of the cryogenic control valve market is stringent regulations & safety concerns due to the handling of extremely low-temperature gases. Cryogenic valves are typically used for transporting and storing gases that are liquefied at very low temperatures, safety risks can arise if the valves are not designed or installed as per the required standards. The handling and storage of these gases require trained professionals who are aware of the safety protocols and regulations to prevent accidents. Additionally, the regulatory frameworks that govern the installation and use of cryogenic valves are complex, and non-compliance can lead to significant financial penalties and legal sanctions. These regulatory and safety concerns impact the growth of the cryogenic control valve market as they result in higher barriers to entry and compliance costs.
