Dublin, Sept. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Large Diameter Steel Tubes – Global Market Trajectory and Analysis” report has been added to the ResearchAndMarkets.com’s special offer.

Global market for large-diameter steel pipes to reach $13.7 billion by 2026
Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for large diameter steel pipes estimated at USD 12.3 billion in the year 2022 is projected to reach a revised size of USD 13.7 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 2, 7% over analysis.

The discovery of the ability of hollow tubes to transport liquids significantly changed the way humanity uses available water and energy resources. Pipes are the structural foundation of economies worldwide, transporting essential liquids to various regions. Pipes, commonly used in potable water distribution, storm sewers and surface water drainage are essential to a nation’s infrastructure.

Boosted by population expansion and subsequent rise in demand for drinking water and drainage systems, the pipe and fittings market is set to grow during the analysis period. Demand is expected to increase further due to the increasing distance between consumers and drinking water sources leading to the need for additional pipeline infrastructure for transportation and distribution. The trend is expected to be further supported by increasing population migration to newer areas, which implies the need for new infrastructure.

The scenario is expected to drive demand for pipes, which are used in public infrastructure applications, including sewage and storm drainage projects. However, demand for pipes varies greatly from changing standards in government spending in each country. Originally, piping systems were made of wood and clay. Later developments in technology have resulted in the use of various materials such as plastic, ductile iron, fiberglass and steel to make pipes.

The energy sector is still the largest market for large diameter steel pipes. More than 50% of all steel pipes and tubes produced are used to transport gas or oil. Large diameter pipelines (LDPs) are the structural foundation of economies worldwide, providing an important mode of transportation for natural gas, oil and other liquids from isolated production and refining areas to consumption centers across national and international borders.

Pipelines constructed with large diameter steel pipes (LDSP) offer unparalleled benefits in the transportation of liquids and gases as well as solid materials. Superior flexibility in deployment and maintenance, support for high volume transportation, 24×7 operation, best-in-class safety and efficiency, negligible impact of weather, low operating cost, are some of the highly recognized benefits of pipeline transportation. Providing best-in-class support, large diameter pipes can transport huge volumes of oil, gas and refined petroleum products over long distances with ease.

As the pipelines are connected with less mechanical damage, the operational performance of the pipelines remains strong and consistent for longer periods of time. At the same time, LDSPs enable end-to-end automation of labor-intensive material loading/unloading processes to bring a new level of efficiency to transportation applications.
