The offshore oil and gas pipes, fittings, and flanges market size was valued at US$ 7,385.0 million in 2022 and is projected to reach US$ 12,033.8 million by 2030; it is expected to register a CAGR of 6.3% during 2022–2030.


Analyst Perspective:

The global offshore oil and gas pipes, fittings, and flanges market has been segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), the Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). North America is among the major crude oil and natural gas producers worldwide. The US is the largest oil producer globally, with a crude oil production share of more than 20%. The country's oil & gas sector is growing year-on-year owing to the discovery of new oil & gas rigs. In addition, natural gas production in the US has grown significantly in recent years as improvements in drilling technologies have made it commercially viable to recover oil trapped in mature oil wells. In April 2023, BP commenced oil production at its Argos platform located in the Gulf of Mexico. The Argos platform is a deepwater facility spread with less than 200 mile south of New Orleans, Louisiana. The platform is designed with LoSal Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and Dynamic Digital Twin technologies to extract oil from the Mad Dog 2 field, a large, high-quality oil reservoir located in the southern Green Canyon area. The growing technological adoption for enhancing oil recovery is expected to drive the offshore oil & gas pipes fittings and flanges market in North America. Moreover, the discovery of new offshore oil & gas rig locations in the Gulf of Mexico is also expected to provide new opportunities for market vendors during the forecast period.

Large population, high per capita income, and rapid industrialization drive the offshore oil and gas pipes, fittings, and flanges market in APAC. The region is the largest consumer of crude oil & gas. Further, highly industrialized countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea are reporting increasing overall energy consumption. To fulfill the growing oil demand, these countries are increasing their focus on boosting domestic oil production through various enhanced oil recovery techniques, which is supporting the market growth in APAC.

Market Overview:

Pipes, fittings, and flanges are the mechanical structures used across the oil & gas industry for transferring fluid or gases across the oil or gas rigs. Different types of materials, such as steel, steel alloys, copper alloys, and nickel alloys, are used to manufacture pipes, fittings, and flanges products that provide several other benefits, such as long-term strength, corrosion resistance, and efficient operations. Moreover, the integration of pipes, fittings, and flanges in the oil & gas industry is one of the most dominant applications among other products in terms of volume. However, compared to the onshore oil & gas sector, the offshore sector accounts for a lesser share as there is a very limited number of offshore oil & gas rigs across different regions.

Moreover, other offshore oil & gas pipes, fittings, and flanges market drivers include increasing offshore oil & gas production, rising production of new oil rigs, reconstruction of existing and old offshore oil & gas rigs, a growing number of enhanced oil recovery operations, and rising developments in the oil & gas industry.

Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa are prime regions showing rapid growth in the offshore oil & gas pipes fittings and flanges market. The rise in developments across the offshore oil & gas industry is driving the pipes, fittings, and flanges market across the offshore oil & gas industry. For instance, in October 2023, KCA Deutag—a leading drilling, engineering, and technology partner—announced its first locally made rig in Oman during a ceremony of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO). Similarly, in November 2023, Shell Egypt announced that it had successfully completed the drilling of the first well in its three-well exploration campaign, Mina West, located in the North-East El-Amriya block in the Mediterranean Sea. Such developments have been pushing the demand for the installation of new pipes, flanges, and fittings in offshore oil & gas rigs.

Market Driver:

High Crude Oil Prices Generating Demand for Efficient Offshore Rig Operations

The demand for oil & gas is rising worldwide owing to the increasing demand for energy. Per a report published by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in May 2023, global oil demand is projected to increase by 2.2 million barrels per day (mb/d) year-on-year in 2023 to an average of 102 mb/d, 200 kb/d more than oil demand published in April 2023. China's demand for crude oil witnessed continuous growth, setting an all-time record in March 2023 at 16 mb/d. Furthermore, the Russian Federation's aggression in Ukraine has threatened the energy supply, and it tends to drive oil & gas prices up. In May 2022, the European Council announced a partial ban on Russian oil imports.

According to the IEA, European countries imported 23% of their oil from Russia in 2021. Sourcing oil from more far-flung locations is expected to keep prices high. Such high crude oil prices enable market players to extract oil profitably with high-cost extraction techniques. EOR methods often involve additional costs compared to conventional oil extraction techniques. When oil prices are high, the increased revenue from selling oil can make EOR projects economically viable. Higher oil prices provide a stronger financial incentive for operators to invest in EOR technologies and maximize their production rates. Thus, the growing demand for crude oil and the rising costs enable key oil producers to focus on enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects.

In April 2022, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), an Indian central public sector company in petroleum and natural gas production, announced the first EOR project in Indian offshore with an investment of US$ 724.2 million to boost oil & gas output. Hence, such implementation of EOR projects drives the offshore oil & gas pipes, fittings, and flanges market growth.
