Global FRP Pipe Market Forecast and Trends

The global FRP pipe market witness market size of USD 2.31 Billion in 2019 and projected to reach USD 3.05 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 4.7% during forecast period of 2020-2026. Growing demand for durable, high strength, and lightweight pipelines for water, wastewater, and industrial chemical supply estimated to drive the industry growth over the forecast period.

The FRP pipe market is lucrative with opportunities in chemical & industrial and sewage end-use applications. At present, very few major manufacturers dominate the glass fiber reinforced plastic (GRP) pipes industry with strong manufacturing facilities and widespread geographic distribution. High initial investments and operational costs linked with the manufacturing of GRP pipes are likely to be the major entry barriers for new market players. Manufacturers tend to offer standard product materials as the costs associated with fabrication and the engineering involved in custom product manufacturing are very high. Yet, they also provide custom GRP pipes for specific application industries, which are usually manufactured based on the requirements presented by end-users.

Advancement and technological growth have a positive impact on the dynamics of the FRP pipe industry, include the introduction of onsite FRP pipe manufacturing services and development of the grooved coupling method to join FRP pipe.

 

Global FRP Pipe Market: Overview

FRP pipe is the multi-purpose pipe which consists of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) material, which includes thermosetting resins and fiberglass. The blend of glass fibers and resin is used to produce FRP products. The resin provides physical and chemical resistance to the product. FRP is a composite material that is made up of the polymer matrix, and it is reinforced with fibers. The polymer includes vinyl ester, epoxy, or polyester thermosetting plastic. FRPs are mostly used in the various industrial sector such as construction, aerospace, marine, and automotive.

Growth Drivers

Demand in Oil and Gas Industry

The main driver for the FRP pipe market is the rising demand from the oil and gas industry. This industry has strict performance requirements, and the products should have high-performance by all the regulations and norms. The materials possess mechanical properties like impact strength, reliability, high tensile strength, and fire resistance, thus making it the most favored product for the oil and gas industry. Also, the oil and gas industry requires high diameter pipes that can manage high pressure. The pipes can also be produced with flame-retardant additives for use in critical operations.

Demand for non-corrosive pipe

Several industries require non-corrosive pipe so that it can be used for the long term. The main reason for using fiber-glass-reinforced plastics (FRP) is their essential corrosion resistance property. The corrosion resistance of FRP is a function of both the resin content and the specific resin used in the laminate, the higher the resin content, the morewill be the  corrosion resistant the laminate property.

Restraint

High raw material price

The fluctuating raw material prices hamper the growth of the FRP pipe market. There is a massive demand for carbon fiber materials in the production of FRP products. The leading raw material suppliers companies prefer supplying carbon fibers to only selected industries such as sports and aerospace that are comparatively stable with long term scheduled projects. Also, the pipes cost around ten times their steel counterpart, which is barring their adoption by industry players.

Global FRP Pipe Market: Type

On the basis of its type, the market is segmented into Polyester, Polyurethane, Epoxy and Others. Amidst these segments epoxy has the largest share in the FRP pipe market, and is expected to drive the market in years to come due its environment-friendly property.

Global FRP Pipe Market: Application

On the basis of its application, the market is segmented into Water and Wastewater, Chemical & Industrial, Oil & Gas, Power Generation and Others. The Oil & Gas segment offers most market potential in the global FRP pipe market due to high purchasing capacity in oil & gas companies and increases in demand for non-corrosion piping solutions. Also, the shift in consumer preferences and rapid downfall in the prices of FRP pipes are some other significant aspects fueling the demand for FRP pipes in the oil & gas industry across the globe. Furthermore, owing to technological advances in oil extraction methods and excellent physical, chemical, and mechanical characteristics of FRP pipes, they are well recognized for their use in oil & gas industry and also play a significant role in key ends user industries such as water & wastewater treatment and other chemical applications.




Global FRP Pipe Market: Regional Insights

On the basis of regional analysis, the global FRP pipe market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region. The Asia Pacific region expected to dominate the industry and is expected to be the leading market for FRP pipes over the estimated period. China and India are expected to be the fastest-growing market for FRP pipes in the Asia Pacific region. Favorable government regulations, availability of skilled labor, and growing demand from product users are likely to force companies to set up their production facilities in this region.

China is the largest purchaser of the pipes in the Asia Pacific owing to huge populations and due to the presence of various chemical manufacturing companies in the country. High population density and the government’s focus on decreasing dependence on imports are driving the market in the country.
