FRP Pipe Market Size, Analysis and Trends 2020-2026
Also, other fibers such as paper, wood, or asbestos are also used but are usually not preferred due to relatively higher prices and lower strength. The polymer used in the production of FRP pipes is generally epoxy, vinyl-ester, or polyester thermosetting plastic. Fiber reinforced plastic pipes are used in several applications such as water and wastewater treatment, and construction and marine and others.
For several different applications, fiber-glass-
The key application driving market is rising water supply for construction and sewage treatment systems, increasing need for rehabilitation of the major water and wastewater infrastructure, and growing oil and gas exploration activities.
However, high initial costs and fluctuation in the price of raw material are some key factors anticipated to hamper the market growth soon. Furthermore, high investments in R&D activities to produce innovative and cost-effective FRP pipes are expected to provide opportunities for growth in the future.
Demand in Oil and gas industry will drive the global FRP pipes market during the forecast period
Growing oil and gas activities, particularly shale gas exploration, are expected to further drive growth of the FRP pipe market over the forecast timetable. FRP is a modern day pipe with many new emerging applications, taking advantage of its corrosion resistance, strength-to-
Demand for corrosion free pipes will drive demand of Epoxy FRP Pipe segment in the global FRP Pipes market
Several industries require non-corrosive pipe for long term use. The key factor for using fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) is due to their critical properties of corrosion resistance. Due to these factors FRP pipe is replacing the conventional steel pipe. Epoxy has the largest share of the FRP pipe industry and is expected to drive the market in the coming years due to environment friendly nature.
