$7 Billion Market for Corrosion Resistant Materials in the Flow and Treatment Markets

In 2014, suppliers of corrosion resistant materials including FRP, resin lined steel and stainless steel will generate revenues of just under $7 billion for applications in flow control and treatment. That is the conclusion reached in the McIlvaine online report, Treatment and Control World Markets (formerly Air/Gas/Water/Fluid Treatment and Control: World Markets).

The biggest segment will be valves. Stainless and FRP valves are widely used in the chemical industry. Oil and gas applications where H2S is present also require corrosion resistant materials. New super critical coal-fired boilers require expensive alloy stainless valves for the steam loop.

Power plant FGD is another big application. There is widespread use of FRP, resin lined steel and various alloys including the expensive C-276.
