Leaking away: Operators have struggled to prevent revenue from continued decline

Taps and valves are essential components of industrial production activity and therefore have a wide range of applications. The UK Tap and Valve Manufacturing industry is relatively small in comparison to other countries, and so imports account for the vast majority of domestic demand, whilst industry revenue is primarily derived from exports. Because of this, an expansion in the number of UK downstream industries has not arrested the industry's decline over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to contract at a compound annual rate of 4% over the five years through 2018-19 to reach £1.4 billion. Turbulent conditions in the global oil and gas market have been a key driver of the decline over the past five years...read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The industry has been unable to arrest ongoing decline, despite greater competitiveness
  • Manufacturers face strong competition based on the cost and quality advantages of many foreign firms
  • Government expenditure in the residential market is expected to support downstream demand

However, given the diverse spectrum of products that industry operators manufacture, concentration levels can vary considerably between disparate product segments or downstream markets. The market share of the largest companies has fallen over the past five years due to a weak oil and gas sector, which is the primary downstream market for the majority of the major players. ...purchase to read more.
