Metal Pipe & Tube Manufacturing in Canada
Demand for the Metal Pipe and Tube Manufacturing industry in Canada grew in 2014, only to fall markedly over the next few years. The 2015 collapse in crude oil prices, followed by a massive slump in demand from the energy sector, which is the industry's largest market, has hurt industry performance. Furthermore, volatile steel prices made it difficult for industry operators to pass costs on to customers, thereby constraining average industry profit. Industry operators are expected to continue experiencing challenging demand conditions over the next five years. For example, oil prices are expected to rebound yet remain volatile in the near future, which may discourage petroleum companies, both domestic and foreign, from investing in new drilling machinery and equipment. Overall, industry revenue is forecast to continue its descent, with most of this decline attributed to a forecast fall in steel prices and import competition.
This industry includes standalone manufacturers of welded, riveted or seamless pipes or tubes made from iron or steel. Steel is purchased as an input material for the manufacturing process, generally in coil or billet form.
