Drill Pipe Market Research, 2031

The global drill pipe market size was valued at $1.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2031.

Drill pipe is a thick-walled and hollow piping used for transmission of drilling fluid through wellbore to the drill bit during rig drilling operation. Drill pipes are seamless steel pipes and are considered as a component of drill string assembly. Drill pipes are also built to handle high external and internal pressures that drilling fluids exert. It is manufactured, inspected, and tested in compliance with the American Petroleum Institute's standard criteria (API). Drill pipes are classified as E grade, X-95, G-105, and S-135 on their API grade.

The drill pipe market growth is fueled by increase in exploration and drilling of new oil & gas extraction locations. New improvements in drilling technology and procedures have resulted in a rise in the oil & gas exploration activity. Furthermore, development of new extraction and exploration locations increases demand for drill pipes driving the market growth. Moreover, growth in popularity of horizontal directional drilling with drill pipes is expected to enhance its demand.

The focus on reducing carbon emissions during oil extraction creates demand for new drill pipes. Moreover, to combat climate change and global warming concerns, some oil producing businesses have set a goal of creating net zero carbon emissions throughout operations. This is expected to generate possibilities for development of the drill pipe market during the forecast period.

Drill Pipe Market by Type

By type, the standard drill pipe segment has attracted attention of drill pipe solution providers. Standard drill pipes are most widely used for drilling operations, owing to their simple design and low cost of manufacturing. In addition, these pipes have a major volumetric share in the drill string assembly.

Drill Pipe Market by Region

On the basis of region, North America was the largest revenue generating region in 2021. Increase in investments in the oil & gas industry in North America offers lucrative growth opportunities for the market players. For instance, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasted a 41% growth in production of oil sands from 2019 to 2035. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register a significant growth rate in the drill pipe market forecast period. This is due to rising government investment in oil and gas projects in various countries. 

Drill Pipe Market by Application

On the basis of application, the onshore segment has accounted for largest revenue in 2021. Large amount of oil & gas is extracted through onshore wells. These are comparatively easy to drill and are available in large quantities, which makes extraction process easier as compared to offshore wells.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) rapidly spread across various countries and regions in 2019, causing an enormous impact on lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted production of many products in the drill pipe market, owing to lockdowns. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases is expected to reduce in the future with the introduction of the vaccine for COVID-19 in the market. This has led to the reopening of drill pipe companies at their full-scale capacities. This is expected to help the market recover by the mid of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases begin to decline, equipment & machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

The drill pipe market is segmented into Type, Grade, and Application. Depending on type, the market is classified into standard drill pipe and heavy weight drill pipe (HWDP). According to grade, it is categorized into API grade and premium grade. On the basis of application, it is classified into offshore and onshore. Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Russia, UK, Norway, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, India, Indonesia, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Brazil, Colombia, and rest of LAMEA). North America is expected to hold the largest market share. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate throughout the forecast period.

Analyst Review

North America has accounted highest revenue in 2021, and Asia-Pacific is expected to register significant growth rate during the forecast period. In North America, the U.S. is the largest shareholder of drill pipe industry. This is attributed to high investments in oil & gas infrastructure and projects. China is also the world's top supplier of oil country tubular goods (OCTG), particularly API grade items. Moreover, the market is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to increase in focus on reduction of carbon emissions during oil & gas production. Companies are expected to adopt new drilling components to increase efficiency of rigs and  to reduce overall carbon emissions to curb rise in global warming and climate change problems. 

Many competitors in the drill pipe market have adopted product launch as their key developmental strategy to strengthen their foothold and upgrade their product technologies. For instance, in December 2020, NOV has introduced H2Shield grade drill pipes for oil & gas industry. The H2Shield pipes offer high resistance to sour service failures caused by sulfide present in the soil.
