The World Onshore Pipelines Market Forecast 2013-2017 from Douglas-Westwood,
considers the prospects for the onshore pipelines construction business and
values the future markets through to 2017 by key component, region, pipeline
type and diameter.
Over the past decade, continual increase in energy demand coupled with strong
development in the production of unconventionals and LNG has set solid grounds
for growth in the onshore pipeline sector. The next five years will see the
realisation of a considerable number of ambitious inter-regional projects.
Global expenditure is expected to reach $216 billion over the next five years,
increasing by 12% compared to the previous five year period with over 270
thousand kilometres of pipelines expected to be installed. Major investment will
be in pipe construction services (47%) and line pipe (27%).
Increasing gasification is shaping the long term demand profile for pipes. With
an anticipated 35% increase in global energy demand over the next twenty years,
the role of natural gas is expected to account for 26% of total energy
consumption by 2030. This growing demand is also driving an increase in larger
Investment in new infrastructure to support LNG and unconventional gas
developments will be a major factor shaping future demand for pipelines. Outside
the major oil province of the Middle East, gas-related lines accounted for 67%
of km installed over the past five years with this figure expected to increase
over the 2013-2017 period.
Increased investment in shale gas and oil will drive additional requirements for
midstream line pipes in the US and surging Asian energy demand is changing
traditional supply flows. Asia will overtake North America as the largest market
for onshore pipelines as the region looks to increase imports of oil and gas
from neighbouring regions. Rapid demand growth in Asia is also providing new
markets for Russian oil & gas and with traditional importers in the west
expected to curb their energy demand, major new inter-regional projects may be
realised during the forecast period, such as the pipeline planned to connect
Russia to South Korea.
