The global pipeline and process services market size was valued at USD 3.49 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.63 billion in 2023 to USD 5.53 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.21% during the forecast period.  

Several activities are included in pipeline and process services throughout an oil and gas pipeline's life cycle. Pre-commissioning is one of these activities, where the laid pipeline goes through several steps to see if it can do everything. Additionally, several safety checks are carried out to guarantee that the pipelines will not cause any harm to living things or the surrounding environment. During its 20- to 25-year lifespan, pipeline service providers keep the channel in the top condition.


COVID-19 has Moderately Impacted Global Pipeline and Process Services Market Growth

COVID-19 has affected the entire industry negatively. According to the International Energy Association (IEA) COVID-19 crisis has significantly impacted the oil & gas industry. The levels of exploration and development in the offshore oil and gas industry have fluctuated significantly over time, making it a historically cyclical sector. Oil & gas prices and market expectations of possible price changes significantly impact the pipeline and process services. Due to the influence of COVID-19, which included the resulting significant reduction in global demand for oil and natural gas and the sharp decline in oil prices following the announcement of price reductions and production increases in March 2020 by associates of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and other foreign, oil-exporting countries, many oil and gas companies made significant reductions in their capital and operating expenditures.

Exceptional Growth of the Renewable Energy Sector to Create Lucrative Opportunities

Over the forecast period, the U.S. pipeline market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR. The pipeline repair and maintenance sector is expected to hold a substantial market share. The root cause of pipeline damage worldwide is corrosion. The U.S. has considerable growth opportunities for exploring conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon reserves and drilling new mining projects to boost the deployment of Pipeline transmission. Additionally, increasing oil and shale gas production and introducing new contracts to boost the output will likely propel the national outlook. The growing energy demand due to increased industrialization has increased oil and gas imports to the country. For instance, in February 2021, EIA estimated that net imports of crude oil would rise from its average in 2020 of 2.7 million barrels per day (b/d) to 3.7 million b/d by the end of 2021 and 4.4 million b/d in 2022.


Increasing Worldwide Demand for Oil & Natural Gas Contributes to the Market Growth

The pipeline industry is a dynamic part of the oil and gas industry as it facilitates the transfer of these products from production areas to facilities for refining and marketing. Pipeline transportation is the most resourceful way to move large volumes of oil and gas over long distances, and it is also a secure method of transportation. New oil discoveries have significantly increased oil and gas reserves in important energy markets, such as the U.S. and Asia Pacific, over the past few years. The discovery of millions of tons of oil reserves has increased the demand for various pipeline and process services. Since these energy markets require commissioning maintenance and decommissioning projects to be completed quickly, this market is witnessing significantly lucrative opportunities for providers. Advanced and developing nations are looking forward to increasing the use of natural gas across various end-use industries by replacing coal and oil with natural gas in all possible scenarios. This has led to the construction of new natural gas pipelines across countries and opened opportunities for market players. As a result, pipelines for oil and gas transmission and production have increased due to rising energy demand in recent years.

Strict Regulations over the Operation of Pipelines to Aid Market Growth

Gas and oil, two combustible fuels, are transported through pipelines, and any leak would significantly harm life and the environment. Additionally, these pipelines traverse seas that are home to numerous aquatic animals. Although technological advancements in pipeline material and monitoring systems have enhanced pipeline safety and efficiency, offshore pipelines pose a greater environmental impact and leakage risk than onshore pipelines. These pipelines must adhere to stringent regulations to ensure safe transmission and distribution and safeguard the regions they pass through. Developments in technology assessment maintenance practices, methodology, and processes over the past few years have considerably condensed the risk of pipeline failure and necessitated updating the standards. Regulations foster a safe and competitive market, improving the oil and gas source chain and driving global demand for cutting-edge pipeline and process services. Onshore Pipeline Regulations (OPR) and the National Energy Board Act (NEB Act), for instance, stipulate that all pipelines in the U.S. must adhere to timely supervision and pressure testing.


Shift to Renewables in the Overall Energy Mix Poses Threat to Market Growth

The widespread acceptance of renewable energy sources for power generation is one of the main threats to the market. As their use has grown at an exponential rate over the past 10 years, solar and wind power pose the greatest threat. The growth rate of oil production is hampered by this shift toward renewable energy, causing well-drilling to proceed slower than anticipated. This swelling adoption of renewables to curb carbon emissions directly omits the necessity for oil and gas exploration happenings and obstructs the global pipeline and process services industry.

Every nation has set goals for renewable energy that must be encountered in the coming years. By 2025, the government of the U.K. intends to generate fifty percent of its electricity from renewable sources. By 2030, Germany intends to generate at least 65% of its energy from environment-friendly sources. By 2030, China intends to meet 16% of its energy needs with renewable sources. By 2023, Brazil intends to use renewable energy sources to generate 42.5% of its energy needs. Thus, the growth of pipeline and process services is likely to be impacted. The market will suffer as a result of the adoption of renewable energy by Europe, which has always been a major buyer. This will have a contrary impact on the market.

Maintenance Segment is Dominating as it is an Unavoidable & Essential Need of Companies

On the basis of operation, the market is divided into pre-commissioning, maintenance, and decommissioning, where maintenance is dominating the market due to the fact that no matter which pipeline construction has been done, its maintenance is of critical importance. If not maintained, all sorts of disastrous consequences, including service disruptions, environmental damage, and even explosions can happen. Pipeline commissioning and pre-commissioning procedures are crucial to their future operation. During construction, grease, oil, grit, and other contaminants are bound to contaminate the materials used in a new piping system. This contamination is removed during commissioning, and a pipeline system that is primed and ready for use is created. Expert inspection, checking, cleaning, flushing, verification, leak tests, performance evaluation, and the functional tests required to operate a new facility are all part of the commissioning process. It is carried out jointly by a facility's operator and contractor. Pipeline maintenance ensures all its components remain functional and intact. It is not a once-in-a-lifetime activity as regular and thorough maintenance will prolong the lifespan of the pipes.
