FRP pipe consists of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) material which includes fiberglass and thermosetting resins. The blend of glass fibers and resin is used to produce FRP products. The resin provides chemical and environment resistance to the product and it is binder for the glass fiber in the structural laminate. FRP is a composite material which is made up of polymer matrix and it is reinforced with fibers. The polymer includes epoxy, vinyl ester, or polyester thermosetting plastic. FRPs are mostly used in various industrial sector such as construction, aerospace, marine, and automotive.
Rising demand for FRP pipe from various construction activities and industrial sector is one of the major factor expected to drive industry growth over the forecast period. Moreover, rising construction of sewage treatment facilities, water supply systems, and increasing oil and gas activities particularly shale gas exploration are expected to further drive FRP pipe market growth over the forecast timeline.
FRP pipe consists of superior mechanical properties such as anti-corrosion, longer lifespans, and low conductivity, thus it is mostly preferred in chemical, oil & gas, pulp & paper, retail fuel, marine, water & wastewater sewage and offshore industries. Currently, FRP pipes are used in several sectors and it is continuously replacing conventional metal and PVC pipes. Furthermore, introduction of onsite FRP pipe manufacturing facilities and development of corrugated coupling method in order to join FRP pipe are some of the emerging trends observed in the industry. Such factors are expected to provide potential growth opportunities for FRP pipe market in the coming years.
Asia-Pacific accounted for significant market share in 2018 in global FRP pipe market. The growth is attributed to rising investment from various manufacturers for the development for FRP pipes in the region. North America accounted for substantial revenue share in 2018. Rising construction activities is the major factor which is expected to positively impact FRP pipe market growth in the region.
