Valves Conference
HighLights
 

a)    Indian valve industry must gear up to meet the future demand expected from the substantial investment proposed in power generation, petrochemicals, gas and fertiliser plants in the 12th five year plan, said Mr P Mahajan, Director (Technical) at Engineers India Ltd.

He was delivering his special address at the Valves conference organised by Confederation of Indian Industry in Mumbai with the theme
“Leadership through Technological Advancement.

“If Indian (valve) industry has to compete globally, they must have a complete portfolio including high pressure and temperature application valves. Indian industry has to do some soul searching,” said Mr Mahajan. He added that there is no need to worry about Chinese competitors.

 

b)      Currently, 85% of the valve demand in India is met indigenously while the balance is imported.

 

c)      Speaking at the inaugural session NTPC Executive Director – Mr A K Gupta, (Engineering) stated that “there are some critical valves which are still imported into India as technology is unavailable locally. Hence Indian manufacturers must align with international standards and constantly innovate and upgrade facilities to make these valves available in time and at competitive costs.”

Valves being critical equipment, NTPC has allowed 4-5 international suppliers to set up manufacturing facilities in India in joint venture with domestic companies by awarding a tender for the requirement of its super critical boilers and turbines,
Mr Gupta said.

Stating the valve demand as an opportunity as well as challenge, Mr Gupta said, India is expanding its power generation capacity by adding 50,000MW in the past five years and 100,000MW in the next years and valve demand will keep pace with it. One power station needs 5,000 valves.

 

d)      Stating that the first valves were manufactured by Romans over 2,000 years ago,
Dr Maurizio Brancaleoni, President of Italian Association of Valves, said European valve industry contributes 20 billion euros ($26 billion) to the economy and employs 70,000 people.

 

e)     Mr Arvind Goel, Chairman, Valves and Actuators Division, CII said that India has reached an inflection point in valves manufacturing, having become a large exporter of valves.

 

f)        The Indian valve industry will continue to grow at 7-8 per cent per annum while exports may grow at 10-12 per cent per annum due to India becoming competitive compared to manufacturers in Japan, Europe and USA.

 

g)     Mr I S Malhotra, Vice Chairman, CII Valves and Actuators Division was confident that many Indian manufacturers will come forward to bridge the gap between supply and demand especially in terms of high end technical valves to cater to the growing domestic market.
