Steel Pipes Market Overview
Steel pipes are used for transportation of fluid such as water, oil and gas. The application of steel pipes varies with their capacity or internal diameter. Steel pipes are also used in construction of buildings in order to carry water and gas. Further, steel pipes offer a number of advantages over other materials including ability to carry flammable gas, high durability and show better results in fire sprinkler system. Moreover, steel pipes are highly resistant to water corrosion which makes it more acceptable in pipe fittings.

Growth Drivers & Challenges
Global steel pipes market is primarily driven by factors such as growing construction activities and development of oil & gas industries across the world. Steel pipes have high strength and high thermal resistant. Such features of steel pipes make them more suitable to use in areas like water pipes, oil & gas pipes and sewage pipes. Further, growing adoption rate of steel pipes in different areas is likely to drive the growth of global market.
Moreover, steel pipes are used in fire sprinkler system due to their ability to operate in high temperature zone. This rise in demand for steel pipes in fire sprinkler system installation is expected to drive the market in near future. Additionally, use of structural steels in pole, fencing, handrails exhaust pipes and for oil & gas are also driving the demand for steel pipes globally.
Furthermore, rapid urbanization and development of new industries is also a major factor anticipated to foster the growth of global steel pipes market. The oil & gas industries are projected to capture maximum market share during the forecast period. Moreover, growing oil & gas industries are likely to drive the growth of global steel pipes market in near future.
However, growth of steel pipes market is predicted to decelerate during the forecast period. Adoption rate of steel pipes is decreasing due to their high cost and rising prevalence of alternative products such as plastic pipes due to their low cost and light weight. Moreover, low penetration rate of steel pipes in areas except oil & gas industries is expected to hamper the growth of global steel pipes market in near future.
