Flowing freely: Rising industrial activity will spur growth despite international competition

The Industrial and Fluid Power Valve Manufacturing industry has benefited from steadily rising demand for flow control devices from all sectors of the economy. However, increasingly difficult operating conditions and weakened demand from several key markets have hurt industry performance. Additionally, decelerating growth in the nondurable goods manufacturing sector has constrained demand for general-purpose valves and hydraulic equipment from these markets. Moviong forward, operating conditions are expected to improve, though volatility in the world price of oil and other commodities is likely to continue constraining demand from the energy and industrial markets...purchase to read more.
