The Middle East spiral welded pipe market was valued at US$ 6,355 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 9,341 Million by 2027 expanding at a CAGR of 5.1 % during the forecast period, 2020-2027. Spiral Welded Pipe are manufactured using decoiling (first step) and cold bending (second step) processes. The three major types of spiral Welded Pipe include electric resistance welding (ERW) pipes, longitudinally submerged arc welded (LSAW) pipes, and spiral submerged arc welded (SSAW) pipes. ERW pipes are manufactured through a welding process where the metal parts are permanently joined by applying heat and melting the metal at the joints using electric current. LSAW pipes are longitudinal pipes made from steel and are manufactured using two methods, UOE and JOCE. SSAW pipes are manufactured using the spiral submerged arc welding process, where the steel trip is rolled toward the center of center of pipe, the pipes are then formed in spiral shape, and then welded into a spiral line. Spiral welded pipe are available in different diameters, lengths, and wall thicknesses.
Spiral welded pipe are used for various applications and selected based on the requirement and use. These pipes are used for applications such as crude oil transmission, natural gas transmission, water transmission, and refined products transmission. Spiral Welded Pipe used for transmission purposes are thick, tough, and ductile and are coated with various coating chemicals for protection against corrosion and rust. Spiral Welded Pipe find major applications in industries such as oil & gas, wastewater treatment plants, and chemicals. Spiral welded pipe are used at construction and manufacturing facilities to transfer raw materials and other products from one end to other. Steel is the most trusted material used for manufacturing pipes. Steel pipes of various grades, strength, thickness, and other specifications are available. Steel pipes are widely accepted for industrial applications and commercial and residential distribution of water.
The market is driven by factors such as increasing applications of spiral welded pipe in various residential and commercial purposes, mode of transportation for transferring fuels, petroleum, chemicals, natural gas, refined products, and several other substances from one place to another, rising adoption of pipeline as a major mode of transportation for fossil fuel, petroleum, water, and refined products are used in day to day life. The consumption of these products is high; therefore, the demand for these products is continuously increasing due to rising populations and consumers need. Growing number of desalination plants in the Middle East countries. Increasing number of desalination processes in the region is expected to boost the market growth in the future. Desalination plants in the Middle East are as follows. However, risk associated to leakage of pipelines, the risk of leakage increases if these pipelines are not installed properly, fitted, and maintained regularly. Maintenance of pipelines at regular interval of time, these pipelines are inter-linked to deliver and transfer the products at particular place. Majority of these pipelines are installed underground. Once the pipelines are installed they require maintenance, inspections, and testing.
Moreover, increasing number of wastewater treatment plants, as wastewater treatment plants require several pipelines through which they transfer the waste water to in-house units from several polluted sources and then these pipelines are also used for transferring the treated water back to the water cycle or rivers. Untapped opportunities in emerging countries, major players in the market are expanding their business by collaborating with other major players in the region. These factors are expected to create lucrative opportunities in the market.
On the basis of types, the ME spiral Welded Pipe market is divided into ERW pipes, LSAW pipes, and SSAW pipes. The ERW segment is expected to hold largest share of the market. These pipes are used in long distance transport pipeline systems including gathering pipelines, distribution pipelines, and transmission pipelines. ERWs are high frequency straight seam welding pipes, LSAWs are longitudinally submerged arc Welded Pipe, and SSAW are spiral submerged arc Welded Pipe. ERW diameter range from 1/8 inches to 6 inches with medium and heavy thickness, LSAW pipes have a diameter size varying from 16 inches to 60 inches, with 50.8 mm wall thickness, while SSAW pipes have a diameter size ranging between 18 inches and 100 inches, with 25.4 mm wall thickness. All the three pipes are available in different size lengths, and diameter. LSAW pipes are majorly used in the oil & gas industry for transporting fossil fuels (including petroleum, crude oil). ERW and SSAW small diameter and medium diameter pipes are widely used as water pipes. LSAW pipes are also used as transmission and distribution pipelines.
In terms of applications, the ME spiral welded pipe market is segmented by crude oil transmission, natural gas transmission, refined products transmission, and water transmission. The water transmission segment is expected to hold major share of the market. Crude oil, natural gas, and refined products are transferred from one place to other in high quantity, as the demand for these products is increasing continuously. Moreover, the demand for water is increasing by the day owing to the rise in population, which is resulting in the growth in the number of water transmission pipelines. The natural gas, oil and refined products pipelines are manufacture as per the specific requirement, and according to the material (liquid and gases) to be transferred from production site to consumers. These pipelines are strong, tough, ductile, and coated with different coating solutions to prevent them from corrosion and rust. Oil and gas transmission and water transmissions are the major applications expected to drive the growth of market, owing to increasing demand for oil & gas, and petroleum products and water transmission at commercial and residential places.
On the basis of end-use, the ME spiral welded pipe market is segmented into oil & gas industry, wastewater treatment industry, construction & infrastructure industry, and other industries. The oil and gas industry segment is expected to hold a significant share of the market; however, the wastewater treatment industry segment is projected at significant CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing initiatives by countries for treating the wastewater by government and non-government organizations to overcome the water crisis is expected to increase the demand for ERW and SSAW water pipes in waste water treatment plants. Oil and gas industry, and water transmission is expected grow in the future, owing to increasing demand of waste water recycling and reuse of water.
Based on countries, the ME spiral welded pipe market is fragmented into Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the UAE, and Rest of Middle East. Saudi Arabia is expected to hold major share of the market during the forecast period. The Middle East is a repository of the largest reserves of oil in the world. A large number of countries in the region produce large quantities of oil for export. The Saudi Arabian and Iraqi are the two major pipeline systems in the Middle East. In the countries Saudi Arabia and UAE are expected grow during the forecast period owing to increasing number of oil pipelines and export activities in the region.
