    Flexible Pipes Market Insights

    The market for flexible pipes is likely to be prosperous in the coming years with significant growth opportunities in the entire market value chain. It is estimated that the global flexible pipes market is likely to recover in the coming years and will register a healthy CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. Recovery of oil & gas activities across regions coupled with an increasing acceptance of flexible pipes in various applications is the factor proliferating the growth of the market, owing to their cost effectiveness and superior performance than steel pipes. Additionally, the introduction of stringent government regulations is further propelling the demand for flexible pipes.  As per Baker Hughes estimates, the worldwide rig count grew by 27.3% from the last year to reach an average of 2,029 rig counts in 2017.

    A flexible pipe is a hollow structure designed to transfer fluids or liquids from one location to another. It is widely used in offshore and onshore oil and gas exploration as well as in production process. Technological advancements are serving the evolution of flexible pipes. Corrosion is one of the major downsides allied with metal piping systems. It ensures both inside and outside the pipe; thus, significantly impeding the hydraulic efficiency. HDPE pipes do not corrode or rust and are unaffected by any biological growth, thus, offering extended service life and continuing cost savings. Flexible pipes are widely used for conveying liquids and fluids, such as crude oil. They can operate even under high pressure and temperature conditions.
