According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the global FRP pipe market is positive with opportunities in oil and gas, water & wastewater, chemical & industrial, retail fuel, pulp & paper, and sewage end use applications. The global FRP pipe market is expected to reach an estimated $4.2 billion by 2023 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2018 to 2023. The major growth drivers for this market are increase in construction of water supply and sewage treatment systems, increasing need for rehabilitation of the major water and wastewater infrastructure, and growing oil and gas exploration activities.
In this market, epoxy, polyester, and vinyl ester are the major resin types used for the manufacture of FRP pipes. Lucintel forecasts that the epoxy resin based FRP pipe is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume and polyester resin based FRP pipe will experience the highest growth over the forecast period.
Within this market, chemical and industrial will remain the largest application by value and volume due to increase in demand for high temperatures and corrosion resistant FRP pipe. Lucintel predicts that the demand for sewage application is likely to experience the highest growth in the forecast period due to increasing residential and commercial construction.
By diameter type, FRP pipe is available in small (60”) diameters. Small diameter FRP pipe is expected to remain the largest market by value and volume.
By pressure rating, FRP pipe is segmented into less than 150 psi (pounds per square inch.), 150 to 300 psi, and more than 300 psi. FRP pipes with pressure rating of less than 150 psi is expected to remain the largest segment by value and volume.
Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market due to growth in construction and infrastructure development. North America is is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to growing investment for the replacment of old and dilapidated pipelines.
Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the introduction of onsite FRP pipe manufacturing facilities and development of the grooved coupling method to join FRP pipe. Future Pipe Industries, National Oilwell Varco, Amaintit, Amiblu, and Hengrun are among the major suppliers of the FRP pipe market.
