“The increased spending by oil & gas companies for infrastructure and network protection and upgradation of oil refineries, pipelines, and drilling sites are some of the factors expected to drive the pipeline market”
The pipeline safety market size is estimated to grow from USD 5.57 billion in 2016 to USD 8.67 billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9.3%. The growth is attributed to the increasing pipeline infrastructure all around the globe and increasing cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure. The growing number of pipeline projects in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) owing to the increasing energy needs are driving the growth of the market in the region; high technological spending in North America and Europe are also contributing to the growth of the pipeline safety market in these regions. However, lack of apprehension about security implementation by operators is restraining the pipeline safety growth.
“SCADA for pipelines and pipeline monitoring systems are expected to gain noticeable traction during the forecast period”
The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) for pipeline segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR among all the technologies and solutions during the forecast period. SCADA provides a real-time solution specific to the requirements of oil and gas industry. The flexible solution is gaining traction, as it provides open interface for customization depending upon pipeline requirements.
“North America is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period”
North America is expected to account for the largest market share in 2016. The drivers responsible for the growth of the pipeline safety market in North America are stable economy, quick technological adoption, and advanced infrastructure demands. With the increasing pipeline infrastructure projects and presence of advanced technology in the U.S., the pipeline safety market is set to grow at a rapid pace in the region.
