The global drill pipe market size was US$ 1.3 billion in 2021. The global drill pipe market size is estimated to reach US$ 2.0 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2030.
A drill pipe is a hollow piping and thick-walled used for the transmission of drilling fluid via the wellbore to the drill extent during rig drilling procedures. They are considered a component of the drill string assembly and are seamless steel pipes. It is made to handle the high external and internal pressures that drilling fluids exert. It is examined, simulated, and tested in compliance with the American Petroleum Institute's (API) standard.
Factors Affecting Market Growth
The growth in exploration and drilling of new oil and gas extraction locations and new advancements in drilling technology and procedures have increased the oil and gas exploration activity thus boosting the global market.
The emphasis on reducing carbon emissions during oil extraction creates the need for new drill pipes. Furthermore, to battle climate change and global warming crises, some oil-producing firms have set a plan of creating net zero carbon emissions throughout operations. This is anticipated to drive the global market.
Fluctuation in the raw material prices is the affecting element that is anticipated to hinder the global market.
Multiple product innovations such as the production of drill pipes that can operate in locations with high temperatures, pressure, permafrost, or with increased concentrations of toxic substances like hydrogen sulfide (H2S), are further boosting the growth of the global market.
Impact Analysis of COVID-19
COVID-19 has adversely impacted the global market as upstream activities were discontinued or temporarily closed due to the reduction in crude oil prices producing a headwind for many upstream players. Furthermore, various companies in the market have stopped manufacturing oil and gas equipment such as drill pipes which have affected the global market. Thus COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global market.
North America was the most extensive revenue-generating region in 2021. Growth in assets in the oil and gas industry in the region offers lucrative growth possibilities for global market players. However, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to register a substantial growth rate in the global market during the forecast period, owing to increasing government investment in oil and gas projects in different countries.
