Spoolable Pipes Market Overview:
Spoolable Pipes Market is expected to reach $2,107 million by 2023, from $1,345 million in 2016, registering a CAGR of 6.7% from 2017 to 2023. Spoolable pipes provide excellent resistance against corrosion, temperature, pressure, chemicals, and impact.
These properties have increased the applicability spoolable pipes across various end-user industries such as offshore, onshore oil & gas, waste water treatment, mining among others. Growth in production of crude oil and natural gas, owing to the rise in energy consumption globally, boosts the consumption of spoolable pipes. The cost-effectiveness of these pipes as compared to conventional piping systems, in terms of manpower required, and energy consumed for installation purpose drive the market demand.
High corrosion and fatigue resistance make it co-terminus with the production cycles of oil fields, proving it to be a better alternative to steel pipes. Moreover, increase in application areas of spoolable pipes, such as in waste water treatment, water distribution, and mining may have a positive impact on the market growth.
The report on global spoolable pipes market focuses on matrix type, reinforcement type, application, sales channel, and geography. The matrix segment includes thermoplastics and thermosets. Based on reinforcement, the market is divided into fiber reinforcement, steel reinforcement, and others. The application segment consists of onshore, offshore, downhole, and others. On the basis of sales channel, the market is bifurcated into direct and indirect. The report analyzes the market trends in different geographies, which include North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
In 2016, LAMEA was the highest revenue contributor to the global market, accounting for approximately two-fifths share, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. New oil & gas transportation infrastructure development, particularly in Turkey, Egypt, and Colombia, is anticipated to drive the spoolable pipes market in LAMEA region.

Top Investment Pockets
Onshore application is the most lucrative segment for spoolable pipes market, which is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 7.1% from 2017 to 2023. The share of global oil & gas production from onshore production facilities is higher than offshore production. However, offshore application segment is the second most attractive segment, growing at a significant CAGR of 6.9%.
In 2016, the thermoplastics matrix segment accounted for the highest revenue and is expected to be register highest CAGR of 6.8%. Thermoplastic resins can be reprocessed & recycled, as no crosslinking occurs and they can be reshaped, reheated, and frozen, repeatedly. Characteristics of thermoplastics, such as high strength, UV resistance, hardness, self-lubrication, durability, waterproofing, and toughness, make it ideal for industrial use.
