"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"

Intelligent Pigging Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Pipeline Type (Liquid, Gas), By Technology (Magnetic Flux Leakage, Ultrasonic, Caliper), By Application (Metal Loss/Corrosion Detection, Geometry Measurement & Bend Detection, Crack & Leak Detection) and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101192 | Status : Ongoing



Pipelines are considered as the most important and broadly utilized medium for the transportation of oil and petroleum gas. This makes the customary reviews of oil and gas pipelines necessary to keep up high operational standards and to avert holes and ecological harm. In a few nations, required guidelines are directed by government experts to consistently check pipelines to maintain a strategic distance from mishaps, perils, and groundwater contamination.

This expands the requirement for intelligent pigging as it examines and gathers information about the area of corrosion and different abnormalities inside oil and gas pipelines. The investigation of oil and gas pipelines by the help of traditional intelligent pigging technology frequently neglects to recognize a little amount of metal erosion prompting oil and gas spills later on.

This has prompted innovative progressions in intelligent pigging. Advancement in technology, like SCADA, SaaS, and automaton vehicles, permit the simple examination of pipelines and empower administrators to act before the appearance of a huge defective occasion.

On the basis of the pipeline type, the global intelligent pigging market can be segmented into liquid and gas. Both the segment is expected to dominate the market. Owing to the massive demand for oil & gas along with increasing population and increase in purchasing power of the peoples. The increasing international relationship among the countries to supply crude oil to meet future demand. This leads to an increase in infrastructure for the transportation of oil & gas.

On the basis of technology, the global intelligent pigging market is segmented into magnetic flux leakage, ultrasonic, and caliper. The magnetic flux leakage is expected to dominate the market in the above segmentation. Magnetic flux leakage technology can be used by both liquids as well as the gas pipelines. For low metal wall thickness pipeline magnetic flux is widely used. But for thick metal wall pipeline, ultrasonic technology is used. The magnetic flux technology is cheapest so, it is widely used across the world.

On the basis of application, the global intelligent pigging market is segmented into Metal Loss/Corrosion Detection, Geometry Measurement & Bend Detection, Crack & Leak Detection. Intelligent pigging is mostly used for all the above segmentation. Intelligent pigging is a smart device that includes electronic devices and sensors. These devices collect various types of information during the inspection of the pipe. They can detect metal corrosion and repair the pipeline before any leakage or environmental damage occurs.

The factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global intelligent pigging market is the increasing demand for oil and gas across the world. The market of intelligent pigging is expected to grow owing to the increase in the delivery of oil & gas from one country to another. Also, increasing in a number of oil exploration projects across the world that requires good infrastructure with proper safety devices. The rapid urbanization leads to increase in the number of fuel station and expansion of the oil & gas industry.

The factor that is expected to restrain the growth of the global intelligent pigging market is the cost associated with maintenance of intelligent pigging devices is high. Also, intelligent pigging not applicable in un-piggable pipelines.

Regional Analysis

The global intelligent pigging market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. In the Middle East & Africa, most of the countries like the UAE, Iraq, Israel, and Egypt are rich in oil & gas resources. Owing to an increase in investment for production and exploration for oil & gas. Also, more investment in pipeline projects to transport oil & gas to other countries. This leads to the growth of the intelligent pigging market. In North America, owing to an increase in investment for building infrastructure for oil & gas transportation. Also, the presence of shale oil, which has an extensive pipeline network and the aging pipeline infrastructure which requires continuous maintenance. In Asia Pacific increase in investment for the discovery of new oil reserves. The new contracts between the countries for the supply of oil such as India and Bangladesh agreement for diesel supply helps to amplify the intelligent pigging to grow. In Europe, owing to the high adoption ability for technology and the continuous adoption of intelligent technology in oil fields.

Key Industry Developments

  • In May 2019, Baker Hughes has secured a contract to employ subsea connect system for Otway Basin in Victoria. Otway basin currently involve natural gas production from multiple fields, which is then piped and processed at the Otway Gas Plant. This project will help to enhance the production and demand for intelligent pigging for inspection purpose.

  • In Jan 2019, Dacon Inspection Services has secured a contract from American Oil & Gas Company for completing UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) inspections for their offshore oil rigs in Thailand and Singapore.

  • In Dec 2018, Mistras has announced the acquisition of Onstream Pipeline Inspection for $143 million. This acquisition will help company to expand its operation in North America.
