The drop weight tear tester is an equipment used for material characterization test designed to prevent brittle rupture and to prevent cracks in pipelines and helps determine whether the pipeline is suitable for high risk, high pressure circumstances. Similarly, drop weight tear tester quantify both crack initiation & crack propagation quality of metallic materials at operating temperature. By evaluating materials under a range of predicted heat conditions, the drop weight tear tester helps regulate how working conditions will affect the strength, life and durability of a material.
The drop weight tear tester are primarily used to test ferrite steels in order to detect the fracture surface of the sample after effect within the temperature. Steel pipelines are used extensively to convey energy in the form of liquid oil and natural gas. Therefore, the steel used in the production of these pipelines should have strong strength and toughness, and high resistance to fracture.
The main features of the drop weight tear tester consist of extremely robust design, high quality, simpler to control software provided for consistency, easy interchangeable parts, and easy maintenance, etc.
Drop Weight Tear Tester Market: Dynamics
Drop weight tear tester plays a crucial role in material qualification in oil and gas and industrial application. The increasing number of oil & gas production and the requirement of pipelines to convey oil & gas from sea to the shore and other services is boosting the drop weight tear tester market globally.
The increasing need to determine the suitability of the pipeline for high pressure conditions at regular intervals to maintain oil and gas flow is expanding the global drop weight tear tester market. Moreover, the increasing investments in brownfield pipeline projects are anticipated to propel the drop weight tear tester market.
The global inclination towards renewable resources for electricity generation is expected to hamper the demand for oil and gas, which can be restraining factor for the growth of drop weight tear tester market. Another challenging factor for the demand growth of drop weight tear tester are the regulations laid down by the European Union on reducing oil & gas exploration and production for protecting the environment.
Manufacturers are focused on developing new machines & solutions to monitor the strength, life and durability of the pipeline. Subsequently resulting in the growth in demand for drop weight tear tester. Increased investment for new oil and gas pipelines in emerging economies from Latin America, South East Asia and Africa will create new growth avenues for the drop weight tear tester market during the forecast period.
COVID-19 crisis impact:
The on-going coronavirus pandemic has taken a toll on all industries. The global market for drop weight tear tester has been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak. As a result of the pandemic, there has been a decline in economic growth worldwide, which has impacted consumer spending patterns. Owing to the containment implemented in all countries, domestic and international transportation had been affected, which has had a significant impact on the supply chain of various industries around the world. This had led to a widening gap between supply and demand.
Thus, inadequacy in raw material supply coupled with manufacturing plants shutdown is anticipated to hamper the production rate of the drop weight tear tester. Resulting in negative impacted on the growth of drop weight tear tester market. However, this situation should improve as the government has begun to relax norms around the world for resuming business activities and the drop weight tear tester market growth is expected to recover as the economic activities resume post the containment of pandemic.
Drop Weight Tear Tester Market: Regional Outlook
North America is anticipated to be the largest market for drop weight tear tester over the forecast period as a result of increased investment in oil and gas infrastructure. For example, the United States has the largest natural gas transportation system, followed by Canada. Moreover the prevalence of large number of manufacturers in the region also provides impetus to the market growth in region.
Furthermore, in Asia-Pacific, the market for drop weight tear tester is anticipated to increase significantly over the forecast period, as a result of increased energy demand, increased investment in oil & gas exploration and production activities and future pipeline projects in this region, particularly in emerging countries such as India and China.
Middle east & Africa also estimated to hold substantial market share in the drop weight tear tester market throughout the forecast period attributing to the prevalence of major oil & gas hub in the GCC countries.
Which trend / segment to impact more:
According to the end use industry, the oil & gas segment is anticipated to lead the drop weight tear tester market during the forecast period. The oil and gas industry has created tremendous potential for drop weight tear tester manufacturers to grow. In addition, the construction of a number of pipelines in various regions could result in the growth of drop weight tear tester for crude and redefine oil across the globe.
“The global drop weight tear tester is likely to grow at a substantial growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the rising demand for crude oil and redefined petroleum in emerging countries. Prominent market players are converging on new innovative technology which will allow the end-user to achieve the accurate standard and approve the use of pipelines for the transportation of oil and gas.”
