    Market Dynamics

    FRP pipes are used in a multitude of applications including flow lines/injection lines, transfer lines, fire water lines, high-pressure CO2 and saltwater injection lines, light chemical lines, tank battery pipes, downhole tubing, and casing liners.
    Listed below, are some of the key factors driving the growth of FRP pipes in the oil & gas industry:

    • World energy demand continues to rise in the long run with increased exploration and production activities both, onshore and offshore.
    • The non-corrosive characteristic of FRP piping systems positions them as the materials of choice for efficient fluid transportation in a wide range of applications in all pressures, temperatures, and mediums.
    • Light weight of FRP pipes, durability, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, high level of stiffness, freedom of design, and low maintenance & installation cost.

    Additionally, FRP pipes provide a longer lifespan and minimize the need for buoyancy in both onshore and offshore applications. FRP pipes are also preferred in natural gas distribution as they are easy to install and allow long pipe network installation.

    Impact of COVID-19

    The pandemic has taken all the major end-use industries in its clutch with the oil & gas industry proving to be its biggest prey. A significant decline in oil prices aggravated the oil price war between two major countries. Later, all the major oil-producing countries had no option except to curtail the production of crude oil and natural gas. Also, such trends are severely affecting future expenditure on oil & gas extraction and production projects.

    The impact of such trends is also being noticed in the demand for FRP pipes in the oil & gas industry. It is estimated that the demand for FRP pipes in the industry will plunge by a double-digit rate in the year 2020 in the wake of the pandemic, taking the market well below its 2015-market value. The recovery will take place from 2021 onwards, helping the market stakeholders to quickly heal the loss endured because of the pandemic. 

    Key Players

    The key players in the market are-

    Key strategic alliance in the market:

    • In 2019, Nation Oilwell Varco (NOV) acquired Denali Incorporated. With this acquisition, the company also acquired the Denali Incorporated brands including Belco, Ershigs, Fabricated Plastics, Fibra, and Plasti-Fab.
    • In 2017, Two market-leading companies: Amiantit Europe & its Flowtite Technology, and Hobas Europe, part of WIG Wietersdorfer Holding, form a 50:50 joint venture Amiblu in Klagenfurt, Austria. Amiblu’s goal is to develop and deliver world-class GRP pipes and fittings to sustainably solve the world’s water and sewer challenges.

    Segment Analysis

    Flow Line is the Most Dominant Application Type

    The market is segmented as flow lines, downhole tubing and well casing, transmission lines, and others. Flowline is likely to remain the most dominant application in the market during the forecast period.

    The oil industry stakeholders are increasingly relying on water injection to maintain production levels. As flow rates and injection pressures increase so do the corrosion and erosion challenges. GRE pipe is non-corrosive making it ideal for use in these applications.

    Epoxy Remains the Apple of Choice in the Market

    The market is classified as epoxy resin and other resins. The epoxy (GRE pipe) segment is further bifurcated based on the curing agent type as aliphatic Amine, aromatic Amine, and anhydride. 

    Epoxy is estimated to remain the dominant resin system in the market in the coming five years. GRE pipes have high chemical and corrosion resistance as well as excellent mechanical, physical, and thermal properties. GRE pipes are capable to handle high pressure & temperature and resist corrosion caused by CO2, H2S, and saltwater, making them a preferred choice in oil & gas applications.

    Filament Winding is the Most Dominant Manufacturing Process Type

    The market is classified as filament winding, centrifugal casting, and others. The filament winding process is estimated to remain the most dominant manufacturing process in the market during the forecast period.

    The filament winding process allows continuous fiber reinforcement in the circumferential direction of the pressure pipe where the principal stress applies, resulting in high-performing product development at a lower cost. All the major FRP pipe manufacturers are increasingly relying on the filament winding technology to fabricate FRP pipes.

    North America will maintain its leading position.

    North America is projected to remain the largest market during the forecast period with the presence of several FRP pipe manufacturers in the region. The COVID-19 outbreak has significantly curtailed the oil demand, which in turn may affect the expenditure of exploration and production in the coming years.

    To get more information about the market trend,

    The USA will maintain its leading position in North America in the coming years. As of February 2020, there were 50,000 miles of oil & gas pipelines under construction globally, out of which 19,709 miles were in Asia-Pacific and 17,716 miles in the USA. So, the USA and Asia-Pacific accounted for over 75% (37,000 miles) of activity.

    Asia-Pacific is likely to heal up at the fastest pace in the post-pandemic market developments. China is estimated to maintain its leading position in Asia-Pacific in the years to come. Currently, the demand for GRE pipes in the Indian oil & gas industry is negligible but is estimated to grow with leaps and bounds in the coming years.
