GLOBAL FRP PIPE MARKET FORECAST 2019-2027

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) material consists of thermosetting resins and fiberglass. The combination of resin and glass fibers makes the main component of FRP products. The resin brings the environmental and chemical resistance to the product and is the binder for the glass fiber in the structural laminate. Based on the chemical and environmental circumstances (given by the customer or user), the type of resin is selected. The global FRP pipe market is estimated to grow with 4.48% of CAGR during the year 2019-2027.

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) material consists of thermosetting resins and fiberglass. The combination of resin and glass fibers makes the main component of FRP products. The resin brings the environmental and chemical resistance to the product and is the binder for the glass fiber in the structural laminate. Based on the chemical and environmental circumstances (given by the customer or user), the type of resin is selected. The global FRP pipe market is estimated to grow with 4.48% of CAGR during the year 2019-2027. The base year considered for the study is 2018 and the estimated period is between 2019 and 2027. The growth of this market is driven by the following factors:

  • Increasing demand for strong, lightweight pipes
  • Cost-effectiveness of the technology
  • Demand from oil & gas industry

The major driver developing the market growth is the increasing demand for strong, lightweight pipes. The augmenting need for lightweight products in various end-use industries is driving the market for CFRP products. CFRP products are used in hoods, wheels, front gearings, engine and others. The use of CFRP products is rising in the automotive industry due to superior strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance. CFRP materials are increasingly substituting metal in various automotive applications, primarily to reduced fuel consumption. CFRP products offer higher weight saving and thus a better fuel economy than the traditional materials such as steel and aluminum.

Vehicle manufacturers are obliged to reduce the average energy consumption of vehicles, and this goal can be met using lightweight products. Ultra-expensive vehicle manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, and Lamborghini plan to increase the use of CFRP products in their super vehicles. The rise of electric vehicles and stringent regulatory norms for maintaining fuel economy standards are major factors that are expected to increase the demand for CFRP products in the automotive industry. This, in turn, is anticipated to augment the growth of global FRP pipe market during the forecast period.

The largest segment by application is the oil and gas industries. Fiberglass pipes market is influenced by the oil & gas end-use industries in the emerging countries like the Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. This is attributed to the energy & infrastructure reforms initiated to upgrade their aging infrastructure and meet their energy needs, owing to rapid growth development in these regions. Fiberglass pipes are expected to witness significant growth as a potential replacement for conventional steel and concrete pipes in several upcoming projects in emerging economies such as the Asia Pacific and South & Central America. On the other hand, chemical industry applications for FRP pipes is growing with the fastest growing CAGR. Chemical Industries is one of the established and rapidly growing markets in Europe and North America. With the rapid upgradation in the infrastructure of companies is providing attractive opportunities for fiberglass pipe suppliers.

Fiberglass pipes market growth in North America and Europe countries is augmented by the falling prices of natural gas. Natural gas is used as feedstock in many chemical processing industries. With the dwindling natural gas prices, production and construction of chemical process industries are expected to witness a spike. Whereas in the Asia Pacific region, manufacturers of chemicals are seeking to offset the volatility in natural gas prices by optimizing operation expenditures. In this scenario, fiberglass pipes, which reduces the friction losses during operation and takes lesser time to install, is expected to provide significant advantages to the companies.

The restraints and challenges of FRP pipes market are raw material prices are volatile, lack of product awareness, regulatory challenges, fiber glass pipe used in transporting hydrocarbons has various restrictions. The most important challenge is regulatory challenges. Unsaturated polyester resin is widely used to produce composite materials, primarily glass fiber-reinforced plastics. However, the use of polyester resin is subject to some regulations owing to its hazardous effects on humans. The inhalation of polyester resin can cause respiratory problems, such as nausea and suffocation with prolonged exposure. Polyester resin can also cause skin rashes. It can prove to be extremely irritant in accidental cases especially when the resin comes in contact with the eye. In addition, the recycling potential for unsaturated polyester is poor. Open molding operations in the composites manufacturing industry cause great exposure to styrene. The average exposure to styrene, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in open-mold processes is two to three times greater than ordinary press-mold processes causing hazardous effects.

Geographically, the global FRP pipe market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which includes:

Asia Pacific is the largest as well as the fastest growing market in the FRP pipe market. The Asia Pacific market is further sub-segmented into countries such as India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and Rest of Asia Pacific. In emerging economies such as China, India and Japan, where energy demand is rapidly growing, preference for natural gas as a replacement for coal is a growing concept. Importing natural gas has a high price attached to it, but transportation through the pipeline is preferred as an economical option when compared to transportation of gas through large LNG vessels. This necessitates huge amount of investment in developing pipeline infrastructure. In this context, fiberglass pipes are expected to witness significant growth as a potential replacement for conventional steel and concrete pipes. The concept of trans Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) gas pipeline network, covering the southeast Asian nations is expected to provide attractive opportunities for fiberglass pipe manufacturers in ASEAN region.
