According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports titled, “ME Spiral Welded Pipes Market by Type, Application, End-use and Country: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2027”, the market was valued at US$ 6,355 Million in 2019 and is expected to grow at a healthy growth rate of 5.1% by the year 2027. The ME spiral welded pipes market is anticipated to grow owing to growing applications of spiral welded pipe, increasing adoption of transmission pipeline as a mode of transportation, rising number of desalination plants in the Middle East countries.

The ME spiral welded pipes market is fragmented on the basis of type, application, end-use and country. In terms of type, the market is divided into ERW pipes, LSAW pipes, and SSAW pipes. Based on application, the market is segmented by crude oil transmission, natural gas transmission, refined products transmission, and water transmission. In terms of end-use, the market is segmented into oil & gas industry, wastewater treatment industry, construction & infrastructure industry, and other industries. Based on countries, the market is fragmented as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE, and Rest of Middle East.

In year 2020, the ME spiral welded pipes market is witnessing downtrend owing to the negative impact of COVID 19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a rapid and serious impact on the global supply of spiral pipes and its manufacturing. Leading manufacturer and exporter of raw materials in the market are facing several issues such as decrease in supply of raw materials, export of goods due to the lack of transportation. Slowdown in the production of spiral welded pipes and its raw materials has given rise to the supply chain disruption in the spiral welded pipes/steel pipes industry. Many countries have closed their national borders and have enforced lock downs since January 2020, which in turn, is hindering the market growth which in turn, is hindering the market growth. The pandemic has hampered the manufacturing sector and economies globally. There is no clarity on the deeper effects has been assessed to date.
