Miniature Solenoid Valves Market Drivers
Growing Concerns Regarding the Safety of Plants
In the past there have been many catastrophic disasters in critical industries such as mining, oil & gas, nuclear power industry and so on. For example Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan and Deep-water Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Soma mine disaster in Turkey and Pike River Mine disaster in New Zealand are some of the industrial accidents recorded in recent times. Such accidents occurring in various industries have raised the question on the reliability and safety of a plant. Solenoid valves can be used as a safety measure so as to mitigate the effect of a potential disaster due to their strong electric current and magnetic field.
For example in a manufacturing plant, a sensor along with a solenoid-actuated valve can be installed so that in case of an emergency the activation of the solenoid can send a mass notification to the employees to vacate the plant or a mine, solenoid valves can be used to monitor temperature and atmospheric conditions so that in case of an emergency, such as a explosion within a mine, automatic supply of water to put of fire can be controlled with the help of solenoid valve.
In case of chemical and nuclear power industry, solenoid valves can be used to monitor leakage of harmful chemicals and radioactive materials and can shut off the process to prevent further leakage of these materials. As preventive measure, the companies all over the world are deploying solenoid valves to prevent catastrophic disasters. The aforementioned factors are expected to result in the growth of the market in the near future.
Rising Number of Power Plants and growing adoption of Solenoid Valves
In today’s technologically advanced environment where the need for automation is essential in every field, power is a very essential and critical requirement to operate the equipment and machinery required in automation of a particular process. In the past few decades the number of industries and players in each industry has increased substantially demanding huge requirement of power. Coping with scarcity of power, the governments of various countries like the U.K, South Africa, Japan, America and others are taking initiatives to increase the capacity of existing power plants and have sanctioned projects to construct new power plants.
The Egyptian government plans to double their power generation capacity. In order to achieve this target Egypt is building new plant facilities which includes construction of a nuclear power plant with the aid of Russian technology and expertise. A new solar power plant is being built in Siwa which would generate 10 MW of power, wherein the Egyptian Electricity Holding Company has signed a contract with ACWA power to build 2 GW renewable energy projects.

Miniature Solenoid Valves Market Challenges
Uncertainty in Oil and Gas Industry
The U.S, Canada, South America were once the major customers of Oil & Gas produced by the Middle East. Increase in the production of Oil & gas in these countries in turn is hampering the exports of Oil & Gas in the Middle East. The production of O&G in Middle East has not reduced with decrease in demand. The drop in Oil & Gas price has forced the production companies to reduce the investment in the sector. Many Oil & Gas drilling projects have been canceled. Total number of operating rigs has reduced drastically in the U.S. This is a major constraint faced by the solenoid valve manufacturers as Oil & Gas industry is one of the key customers of solenoid valves. Solenoid valves are used in equipment to drill an Oil Well, extracting and transmission of Oil & Gas to the refining plant; control the flow of Oil & Gas and so on. Hence the prolonged uncertainty in the crude oil prices might result in the reduction or cancellation of new projects thereby reducing the demand for solenoid valves used in this particular industry.
Miniature Solenoid Valves Market Landscape
