According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports, titled, “Global Slurry Knife Gates Valves Market, By Type, By End Use Industry, and By Region: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2019-2030”, the market was valued at USD 750.7 Million in 2022 and is expected to expand at a growth rate of 4.6% by 2030.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst, “The global Slurry Knife Gates Valves market is anticipated to register significant growth during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Increasing demand from wastewater management plants is driving the market. High demand from mining and energy & power industries is supporting the market growth. The cost of the slurry knife gates valves depends on certain factors such as the weight, design, and size of the slurry knife gates valves. Moreover, a slurry knife gates valve has a lifespan of 2 to 3 years. The market was negatively affected during the pandemic. However, it is reviving at a significant pace from 2022.

Slurry knife gate valves are usually designed in a way that it isolates the slurry flow in most challenging processing conditions. Valves present in the slurry knife gate prevent the accumulation of slurry in the seat area, which otherwise deters the valve from closing. The bi-directional flow of the valve tolerates the backflow while the sleeves made of elastomer present on the both sides of the gate provide a strong shut-off mechanism.

These valves are easy to maintain, as the body of the valve is casted in a single piece. This eliminates the need for sealing between the halves of the valve body. Heavy-duty slurry knife gate valves are highly used in mining and mineral processing, power, pulp and paper, water treatment, and other industries.

These slurry knife gate valves deliver a bubble-tight isolation shut-off mechanism in critical slurry applications. Thus, these valves provide high performance and increased sensitivity to environment.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted economic disparities in the global demand in the crisis of global interdependence and governance challenges. Pandemics are isolated concerns for businesses and prospects for emerging patterns and vulnerabilities. Strict measures are required for monitoring the pandemic, which affected businesses and caused unanticipated short and long-term effects.

Consequently, pandemics are problems for individual market and an enhancement of existing dynamics and limitations. In the long-term, COVID-19 serves as an opportunity for manufacturers to reconsider their commitment to the supply chain in regions prone to outbreaks and to reconfigure themselves regionally.
In the present scenario, COVID-19 is hampering the production process of several manufacturing industries and businesses. Moreover, trade barriers are further reducing the demand-supply of various products and services. However, reduction in outdoor activities and social distancing has created lucrative opportunities for the market.

Key Takeaways from the Study

  • On the basis of Type, the flanged segment held a Major market share in 2022 and is projected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. Flanged slurry knife gate valves are commonly used in applications with relatively large pipe diameters, as they are easy to construct. Furthermore, they come in a variety of designs and broadening options for different types of applications.
  • On the basis of End-Use Industry, the mining segment is projected to expand at a significant rate during the forecast period. Mined materials are used to construct basic infrastructure such as the framework of buildings and to generate power. Thus, rapidly increasing industrialization along with growing population is expected to drive the mining industry in the coming years. Thus, development and rising mining activities are expected to impact the global slurry knife gate valves market during the forecast period.
  • On the basis of region, the Global Slurry Knife Gates Valves market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. The market in North America is rising at a rapid pace, owing to the rising focus in water treatment activities and increasing consumption of electricity in the region. These factors are helping the slurry knife gate valves market to expand in this region. North America has witnessed significant growth in the pulp & paper industry since last few years. This is also projected to drive the market in this region during the forecast period. The US government is focusing on water quality as well as has implemented various acts and laws. For instance, The Clean Water Act (CWA) established a nationwide approach in improving and maintaining the quality of rivers, streams, lakes, and other water bodies. Under this act, EPA and the states share responsibility for protecting water quality. These acts and laws increase the number of water treatment plants, which further leads to the increasing use of slurry knife gate valves in the region.
