The global aerogel-based cryogenic pipe supports market was valued at USD 2,040.0 Thousand in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 3,001.2 Thousand by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period. Aerogel-based cryogenic pipe supports use aerogel as an insulating material and especially designed and produced to conduct cryogenic substances. Aerogel insulation can be very thin owing to thermal efficiency of the aerogel. This reduces the weight of the pipe system. Reduced size, thickness, and weight results in low installation cost of the entire pipe system. Furthermore, these pipe supports are hydrophobic, which prevents the moisture from getting into the insulation around the pipe.
The market is driven by factors such as rising Industrial activities in emerging economies and growing production of oil has resulted in a surge in the demand for Aerogel-based Cryogenic Pipe Support. Conversely, growing availability of alternative product and fluctuation in the prices of raw material areas are key restraints of this market. Growing oil industry in Middle East in emerging markets an opportunity for manufacturer.
On the basis of type, the global Aerogel-based Cryogenic Pipe Supports Market is segmented as resting, guided, hanger, anchor, others. The guided segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period as guided Pipe supports are widely used in the industries where pipes undergo frequent fluctuations in temperature, pressure and weight. These supports keep pipes from moving, thus maintaining the integrity of the whole structure. The hanger segment is estimated to hold 50.4% share of the market in 2020 as the adoption of hanging support for pipes is increasing in small sized industries as pipes are hanged from the ceiling using hanger support, the space on ground is freed for other activities. The anchor segment is estimated to hold 8.4% share of the market in 2021.
Based on application, the market is segmented into energy & power industry, petrochemical industry, oil & gas industry, and others. The oil & gas segment is projected to hold a major share of the market during the forecast period as due to increasing production of this industry. Petrochemical industry segment is anticipated to hold major share of the market. As production of oil and gas industry has increased, the processing of crude oil and gas in petrochemical industry is also on the rise, which is fueling the demand for pipe supports. The others segment is also expected to grow at a substantial pace during the forecast period owing to growing demand from chemical, food processing industries.
Resting: Resting pipe supports or shoes are used to support the weight of heavy pipes. These pipes do not allow much movement of the pipes; therefore, they are widely used where very little or no pipe movement is expected. These supports prevent the downward sagging of the pipe due to weight, as the sagging can damage the pipes. A curved platform known as a saddle is attached to the structure and is ideally used or insulated pipes. A shoe provides a large surface area for the pipe to rest on. Choice of the shoe depends on size and weight of the pipe.
Guided: Guided pipe support or pipe support guide allows axial movement of pipe; however, it restrains the pipe from moving sideways. Guided supports can be attached to the base after the pipe is installed or can be fabricated with the base of the pipe. These supports are designed to restrict the pipes’ movement in one or two, directions depending on the requirement. For the pipes that are routed in a vertical direction, these pipe supports come in a shape of a box. These box-shaped guided supports wrap around the pipe and the shoe to prevent it from moving. These supports are used where they need to keep the pipe in a specific position. Pipes may move from their places after multiple cycles for contraction and expansion. Guided supports hinder the movement of the pipes and keep the pipes in their place.
Hanger: Hanger pipe supports are used to support hanging or suspended pipes or pipes that are not lying on an underlying support. These supports restrict the vertical movement of the pipes. Many hangers allow lateral movement of the pipes. Hangers can be rigid, constant support hangers and variable spring support hangers. Overhead hanging piping is done only if there is an absolute need for them, as factors such as thermal expansion, vibration abrasions, energy loss, weight of the pipe, and pipe ruptures cause pipes to move these movements can cause hangers to break, which can cause fatalities.
Anchor: An anchor support restricts the pipe from moving in all three dimensions, while supports bare the weight, and thrust the load of the pipes. These supports are designed in a way which restricts the movement and displacement of the pipes that are caused due to their thermal expansion, which can lead to energy loss, vibration abrasions, and pipe ruptures. Anchor supports themselves and have a little flexibility to maintain the integrity of structures, including pipes, insulations, and supports.
Other: The others segment includes clamps, axial restraint etc. which are usually used in horizontal pipes to restrict the centerline movement of the pipe. Lateral restraints, restraints aroused to prevent the movement of pipe perpendicular to its axis. Sway brace or supports are light in weight at the center of the spring, which restricts the movement of hanging pipe in either direction from the centerline of the spring. Other supports include hydraulic snubber, mechanical snubber, and limit stop.
In terms of regions, the market is fragmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. The Latin America is a promising region for the market. The region constituted 22.0% share of the market in 2020. The Latin America and Middle East & Africa market in the region is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period as there is increase in increasing focus of players on research and development, rise in government initiatives are some of the factors expected to boost the market growth on the region.
