Major growth in these industries has substantially increased the demand for pumps, valves, pipes, and other essential hardware. And according to the latest forecast in World Markets published by McIlvaine Co., sales of Industrial Valves and Actuators will soon exceed $55 billion.

In addition, energy applications will account for nearly 40% of total revenues and municipal water and wastewater will account for 18 percent. The chemical industry is expected to generate sales of over $6 billion and there will also be a strong market for pumps and valves in chemical applications throughout Asia.
