Welded Pipes Market Trends

  • Growing use in oil and gas is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for welded pipes is being driven by the rising use in oil and gas industry. Increased oil and gas production due to transportation industry demand is one of the primary growth drivers for the welded pipes market. The oil and gas industry primarily uses welded pipes and tubes. Welded pipes are utilized to transfer gas and liquid in this business. They are typically constructed of low alloy or carbon steel. When selecting pipes for certain purposes, inside diameter, elasticity, yield strength, and pressure rating are all key elements to consider. The United States oil and gas industry is a major welded pipe and tube end-user. The product is utilized in crude oil's upstream, midstream, and downstream processing.

The welded pipes market is likely to increase steadily during the forecast period due to advances in the oil and gas industry in the United States. With the recent finding of unconventional oil and gas assets, the country's oil reserves have climbed to greater than 68 billion barrels, with natural gas reserves to 432 trillion cubic feet in 2019. In 2019, the country contributed 17.5% of oil output and 23.2% of gas production. In the coming years, these numbers are likely to climb.The United States crude oil output climbed to 17,3045 thousand barrels daily in 2019, over 11,801 thousand barrels per day in 2018. The country's forthcoming forecast, which includes the USD 43 billion Alaska LNG liquefaction facility and the USD 33 billion Cameron LNG Liquefaction facility, is likely to raise demand for oil and gas equipment, including steel pipes and tubes. All of these factors contribute to the growth of the welded pipes market and are projected to continue in the forecast period. The demand for the pipe is projected to rise. The  need for more affordable transit will rise. Each mode of transport reduces the cost of moving fluids per unit weight per unit distance by an order of magnitude: air, surface, ship, and pipe.Thus, driving the Welded Pipes market revenue.

Welded Pipes Market Segment Insights

Welded Pipes Material Insights

Based on material, the  Welded Pipes market segmentation includes carbon steel, stainless steel and alloy steel. The stainless steel segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue. Stainless steel materials for welded pipes are composed of many iron-based alloys.

Welded Pipes Type Insights

Based on type, the  Welded Pipes market segmentation includes process pipes, mechanical tubes, heat exchanger tubes, structural tubes, and hydraulic instrumentation tubes. The heat exchanger tubes segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue. The two most prevalent heat exchangers are plate, shell, and tube heat exchangers. Shell and tube heat exchangers contain steel tubes within a carbon steel shell. They are ideal for applications demanding extreme temperatures, high flow rates, and pressure loads, which drive the welded pipe industry. These are used to freeze, heat, or re-heat fluids or gases in various industries, such as chemical processing, food processing, pharmaceutical, oil refining, nuclear power generation, refrigeration, and aerospace. These tubes are ideal for applications requiring high temperatures and pressures.

Welded Pipes Application Insights

The  Welded Pipes market segmentation, based on Application, includes oil & gas, power generation, infrastructure & construction, automotive, mechanical & engineering. The oil & gas category generated the most income. The discovery of new locations for crude oil and natural gas has raised the demand for high-strength materials that may be used for pipelines and their connections. Welded pipes must withstand both internal fluid pressure and adverse environmental conditions. Welding high-strength pipeline materials is another issue for engineers working on pipe, oil, and gas transportation lines. Effective welding procedures for these materials are necessary to improve dependability and profitability in this industry.
