In the face of such the large future market for, how many order could Chinese manufacturing enterprises for ceramic lined valve really benefit from?, is how much the gap does Chinese capital in comparison with the foreign capital? I’m afraid Chinese valve manufacturers would care more about these problems.
The gap is related to the structure of industry. The size of valve production enterprises in China is too small and the industrial concentration was too low. According to the data of FUVALVE, which company is specialized in manufacturing the ceramic lined valve, at present, domestic ceramic valve manufacturing enterprises are about more than 3000 homes which are the first rank around the world. But they are mostly low-level, small-scale, cottage industry enterprises. The bellow sealed valve companies which annual sales revenue could reach 5 million RMB are less than 500.
The companies whose annual sales income is over one hundred million RMB are just more than a dozen companies. The market share of the enterprises, which is the top 10 enterprises, is only 8% ~ 9%. Due to the low industrial concentration, there are many other adverse factors such the backward technology, low price competition and lack of influential brands. These disadvantages make such a huge China valve market up to now have no true brand. It is not like the other famous company such as the FUVALVE who is good at the producing for ceramic lined valve. Bellow sealed valve, FEP lined valve, PFA lined valve, FEPT lined valve and other special valves. The products quality of FUVALVE is very stable.

The difference of the whole industry chain is also the crucial point. As one kind of ceramic lined valve mechanical equipment, the whole industry chain of the ceramic valve production of in the downstream, including steel, sealing materials, and mechanical processing industries which the development level will have important influence on technical parameters of the ceramic lined valve. Directly influences of the strength, ductility and corrosion resistance of steel valves would reflected on high pressure resistance and corrosion resistance;
The production level of Sealing material determines the valve applicable media and can withstand the pressure; Machining accuracy is another important factor which would affected the interface sealing, ceramic valve head and valve seat sealing levels. But in China, the technology of these aspects has a certain gap compared with the same productions of foreign countries. These factors will cause the frustration when domestic ceramic valve manufacturing enterprises produce the high-grade products of ceramic lined valve.
