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%.

Segment Review

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.

Analyst Review

Spoolable pipe is an engineered solution usually composed of several layers, including high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, reinforcement layer, and outer cover layer of HDPE for the piping system operating in the corrosive oil field. The pipe offers unique advantages as compared to conventional steel pipes in terms of flexibility, re-usability, corrosion resistance, and installation speed. Spoolable pipes are widely utilized to transport crude oil, gas, hydrocarbons, and water. They consist of a matrix, which is generally made of thermoplastic or thermoset polymers.

Superior properties of spoolable pipes as compared to conventional ones drive the market growth. The flexibility and lightweight characteristics of spoolable pipes requires less manpower, equipment, and energy to transport and install make it easy to install in subsidence and seismic movements of sea bed as compared to its steel counterpart. Increased drilling activities for oil & gas extraction have enforced oil & gas companies to increase their capital expenditure, thereby boosting the demand for spoolable pipes.

Moreover, discovery of new oil & gas fields is expected to open new opportunities for spoolable pipes manufacturers.
