According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "FRP Pipe Market by Type, Application and Process: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023," the FRP pipe market was valued at $2,080 million in 2016, and is projected to reach $3,557 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2017 to 2023. The chemical and industrial segment accounted for more than two-fifths of the global market in 2016.

Access Full Summary at :

The term FRP pipe refers to piping systems constructed of polymers reinforced with fibers. FRP pipes are widely employed across several end-use applications, such as construction, water and wastewater treatment, and oil & gas. Moreover, FRP pipes possess natural damping capabilities owing to excellent damping properties of polyester, polyurethane, and epoxy resins. Also, the strength to weight ratio and fatigue endurance of FRP pipes are some of the major attributes related to the replacement costs as well as capability to design high performance and lightweight piping systems. FRP pipes can be easily fabricated over a broad range of complex shapes and sizes, which cannot be easily achieved in steel and cement pipes. Furthermore, low cost maintenance is another key advantage associated with FRP pipes since composites do not undergo the corrosive attacks.

Increase in demand for lightweight piping solutions coupled with growth in awareness among consumers regarding beneficial advantages of FRP pipes fuel the growth of the global FRP pipe market. Moreover, rapid increase in the demand for high performance and corrosion free pipes especially in oil & gas industry and rise in investment by governments of developed and developing economies to improve the overall wastewater treatment facilities are expected to boost the market growth. Also being a versatile material, composites are used in various rapidly growing markets such as construction, industrial, chemical, and power generation, which also drives the growth of the market. Increase in demand for temperature resistant piping solutions as well as rise in per capita disposable incomes are projected to accelerate the overall market growth. However, volatile raw material prices as well as high cost of carbon fiber hamper the market growth.

The chemical and industrial segment accounted for nearly two-fifths of the global market, in terms of volume, in 2016. The demand for FRP pipes has increased owing to rise in demand for cost-effective and corrosion and temperature resistant pipes in chemical industry. Thus, increase in requirement of temperature and corrosion resistant pipes and rise in demand for lightweight pipes for construction activities is anticipated to boost the market growth.
