Clad pipes are special corrosion-resistant pipes made by bonding carbon steel pipes with corrosion resistant alloys (CRAs) to withstand highly corrosive environments. They are mostly used in the offshore oil & gas industry in high temperature and high pressure conditions as they exhibit high corrosion resistivity. Clad pipes are generally made by bonding a parent metal pipe, which is generally carbon steel, and a CRA metal pipe made of copper and nickel alloys.
Safeguarding pipelines from highly-corrosive marine environments and the relatively economic pricing of clad pipes as compared to other CRA pipes is the primary driver for the global clad pipe global market. The clad pipe market is expected to create an incremental $ opportunity worth nearly US$ 3454.4 Mn during the forecast period, expanding with a CAGR of 5.6%.
Factors Influencing Clad Pipe Market Growth
One of the main factors associated with the prosperity of the clad pipe market is corrosion. Corrosion is a major problem in pipelines in the oil & gas industry as oil & gas products carry along various chemicals and gases that causes corrosion. This has compelled major oil & gas companies to opt for the installation of clad pipes as they are economical and corrosion resistant. This, coupled with the increasing number of offshore oil & gas projects, is expected to drive the clad pipe market over the forecast period.
As per the World Corrosion Organization, an estimated US$ 2.5 Trillion is the annual cost of corrosion worldwide, which is almost 4% of the GDP of industrialized countries. Out of which, 45% is spent in oil & gas and petrochemical sectors, which accounts for almost US$ 1 Trillion. The increased corrosion costs, coupled with the leaks, maintenance, shutdowns and turnarounds associated with corrosion, are driving the industry towards the installation of more effective solutions. Corrosion can be tackled through the use of clad pipes as they not only offer strength and ductility but also exhibit high corrosion-resistant properties. Even though CRA pipes are also used to counter corrosion, they are much heavier and expensive to fabricate as compared to clad pipes. Hence, almost all major oil & gas companies now prefer installing clad pipes for their offshore and onshore projects.
The fabrication of clad pipes is difficult and requires specialized welding techniques. Clad pipes are also more expensive as compared to lined pipes, which may prove to be a challenge as it deters the adoption of clad pipes. However, given its advantages such as high corrosion resistivity, light weight and economic price point, the clad pipe market is expected to register robust growth over the forecast period.
