Market Overview

The onshore oil & gas pipeline market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period of 2019 - 2024. A wide network of thousands of miles of pipelines dramatically speeds up the process of oil transportation (making it cheaper, in the long run, to move products across the world) and provides a safe and efficient solution for the transportation of numerous hydrocarbon products.

  • As of 2017, there were approximately 83,802 miles of pipelines planned and under-construction, of which 38,390 miles are in the engineering and design phase, while 45,412 are in various stages of construction. Of the total, North America leads the total planned pipeline installation with 31,814 miles followed by Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East. 
  • According to IEA, by 2023, global oil demand is estimated to reach 104.7 millions of barrels per day, an increase of 6.9 millions of barrels per day from 2018. Although the global oil production and consumption is increasing, construction of new pipelines has become trickier, owing to rising environmental concern, security threat of assets and landowners refusing to allow their lands to be used for pipeline construction.

Scope of the Report

The scope of the study considers onshore pipeline manufacturers for the oil and gas industry. The market is segmented by pipeline type as oil pipeline and gas pipeline to transport crude oil and natural gas in either a liquid form or gas form to refineries or distribution centers. the onshore pipeline scope for the market vendors is majorly midstream sector of oil and gas industry and reflects the same in the study estimates.

Key Market Trends

Growing Focus on Natural Gas Pipeline Infrastructure is Driving the Market

  • The demand for natural gas is projected to increase at an average of 1.6% year on year for the next 5 years with emerging Asian markets as a major contributor for demand, according to International Energy Agency (IEA).
  • By 2030, owing to factors, such as environmental benefits and quest for energy security in regions, such as Asia-Pacific, the consumption of natural gas is expected to witness the fastest growth among all fuel types.
  • The lower cost in comparison to other fossil fuels type is expected to also supplement the demand for natural gas during the forecast period. The natural gas pipeline network is expected to grow in parallel to the increase in natural gas demand.
  • Focus on cleaner fuel, technology developments making it possible for coal-bed methane cost-efficient farming has been among the driving factor in demand for the pipeline infrastructure. Further, the region has a huge population base and farm need for fertilizers has remained higher, natural gas use as a raw material in fertilizers production is also expected to drive the growth in the market.

Asia-Pacific to Expect a Significant Growth in the Forecast Period

  • With China’s five-year plans for the period of 2016 - 2020, the government’s plans to increase the proportion of natural gas in the energy consumption mix to about 10% by 2020, from about 5.9% as estimated in the year 2015, through enhanced domestic exploration and production activities.
  • With the anticipated increase in oil & gas consumption to satisfy the primary energy needs, the installation of oil & gas pipeline is expected to increase in the country, for the transportation of hydrocarbons.
  • China is expected to strengthen its gas pipeline network, to boost the clean fuel’s share in the country’s energy mix, during the forecast period. As per the National Development and Reform Commission of China, the country's oil & gas pipeline network is expected to reach 240,000 km by 2025, with natural gas pipelines reaching 123,000 kilometers. India is currently investing in harnessing its natural gas resources trapped in coal-bed which is also expected to augment the market demand in the region.
  • China seeking to control the transmission fees that pipeline distributors charge, for transporting gas and providing subsidies for the laying of new gas pipelines, in a bid to promote the share of natural gas, in its primary energy mix. As a result, the installation of new gas pipelines in the region is expected to witness a significant increase, during the forecast period.
