VMA’s 2018 Market Outlook: Some Optimism, But Issues Remain

The attendees of VMA’s 2017 Market Outlook Workshop in Boston, Aug. 3-4, came away with a generally more positive outlook than they have for the last couple of years. Most end markets for the valve industry appear to be stable or improving and upstream oil and gas markets are recovering. Chemical demand also appears robust in 2017.

Yet, there are still inherent issues in the world economy that continue to affect the valve industry, including a high U.S. dollar and low energy prices. Also, while the U.S. is set to export large amounts of LNG, it is not the only country that wants to do so.
