Spoolable Pipes Market by Matrix Type (Thermoplastic and Thermoset), Reinforcement Type (Fiber Reinforced, Steel Reinforced, and Hybrid), Diameter (Small and Large), Application (Onshore (Production Gathering Lines, Water Injection Lines, and Others), Offshore (Injection Strings, Velocity Strings, and Others), Downhole, Mining, and Water Distribution), and Sales Channel (Direct Sales and Distribution) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023
The global spoolable pipes market is expected to garner $2,107 million by 2023, from $1,345 million in 2016, registering a CAGR of 6.7% from 2017 to 2023. A spoolable pipe is a flexible pipe composed of three layers, namely, the liner, cover, and reinforcement layer.
The liner, which is the inner layer and cover, and the outer layer are composed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), cross-linked polyethylene (PEX), polyamide (PA), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), and other thermoplastic resins. The reinforcement or the structural layer is made up of glass fibers, carbon fibers, aramids, para-aramids, steel, aluminum, wires, cords, and high-performance fibers such as M5, spectra, vectran, zylon, among others. Internal and external corrosion leads to quick aging and premature failure of steel pipelines. Majority of the steel pipes are decommissioned after prolonged years of repair and services. Spoolable pipe offers high design flexibility along with high resistance to corrosion, pressure, and impact. Moreover, these pipes are lightweight and flexible in nature, as compared to their steel counterpart; thus requiring less manpower, equipment, and energy to transport and install. This makes spoolable pipes a cost-effective alternative to steel pipes.
Superior properties of spoolable pipes as compared to conventional counterparts have increased their adoption in the market. Properties, such as corrosion resistant and high impact resistant, make these pipes suitable for oil & gas field. Increase in production of oil & gas on account of rise in energy consumption is expected to boost the demand for spoolable pipes for transportation purposes. Moreover, the discovery of new offshore oil & gas fields is expected to present new opportunities for the manufacturers of spoolable pipes. However, high entry barriers due to stringent regulations on the design, construction, and operation of spoolable pipes by Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), American Petroleum Institute, ASTM International, and Canadian Standard Association could hamper the market growth.
The global spoolable pipes market is segmented based on matrix type, reinforcement type, application, sales channel, and geography.
