The global steel pipe market is projected to reach a value of US$1 51 905 million by 2032, with the market growing at a steady CAGR of 5.4% from 2022 to 2032. In 2022, the target market is expected to reach US$90 122 million. The surge in oil and gas production to cater to the demands of the transportation industry will aid the growth of the steel pipe market during the forecast period.

The oil and gas sector is one of the major growth drivers of the target market as steel pipes and tubes find their major usage in this industry. Steel pipes are utilised to transport gas and liquid in the oil and gas sector, which supplements the growth of the target market. Most commonly, alloy steel and carbon steel are used in the production of steel pipes. Owing to this, many manufacturers are considerate of the raw material prices and have reserved suppliers who offer cost benefits to their target consumer base.

The properties of steel pipes such as resistance to corrosion and high levels of reliability play a crucial role in its rising global demand. These inherent characteristics of steel pipes make it a preferred choice for a variety of construction projects, such as the building of homes and companies. Furthermore, steel pipes are gaining increasing usage in industrial settings, which boosts their market prospects. In addition, these steel pipes cost less than traditional pipes and tubing, which amplifies the demand for steel pipes in the global market. All of these factors work together to create an environment of growth for the steel pipes market during the forecast period.

"Rising industrial applications coupled with high demand from oil and gas, and construction industries will likely propel the global growth of the steel pipe market over the forecast period," says an FMI analyst.
