Thermoplastic pipes have unique properties such as flexibility, excellent chemical resistance, low installation cost, high mechanical strength, greater flow and rust resistant features. Owing to above unique properties, these pipes are preferred over metal pipes and considered as the best option for oil and gas offshore drilling practices.
Increasing applications of thermoplastic pipe across sectors such as oil & gas, chemical, mining & dredging and municipal along with application in deep water and ultra-deep-water is a key factor driving the growth of the market. Greater acceptance of thermoplastic materials in engineering processes and large diameter pipe applications are other important factors expected to drive the demand of the market along the forecast period. In addition, increasing number of horizontal wells during oil and gas activities is expected to be a major growth opportunity for the thermoplastic pipe market. However, higher production cost of thermoplastic pipes across oil and gas sector coupled with rising safety concerns are the key factors hampering the growth of the market.
