Global natural gas pipeline market outlook

As per Technavio's natural gas pipeline market analysis, the market ir predicted to grow moderately during the next four years and will reach a natural gas pipe length of more than 2651 miles by the end of the forecast period. This market research analysis identifies the decline in steel prices as one of the factors driving natural gas pipeline market growth. Steel is one of the major raw materials used in manufacturing natural gas pipelines and studies have shown that the cost of steel amounts to almost 16% of the total cost for manufacturing one mile of gas pipeline. As a result, the current trend of decreasing steel prices will signifiacntly drive the growth of the natural gas pipeline market in the next few years. Though the rise in energy prices increases the manufacturing costs, the reduction in prices of Iron ore and steel scrap, which are used as raw material to make steel, will fuel the growth of the natural gas pipleine market over the forecast period.

The need to rationalize the flow of data, make real-time choices, improving asset performance, and product quality, will soon result in the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) by the oil pipeline industry. Through regular monitoring, tracking, controlling, and asset management, IoT will provide a detailed diagnostics and will also allow real-time data sharing. Moreover, IoT can also be used to report preventive maintenance directly at the source, which will allow immediate corrective responses that aids in minimizing leakages.
