“Duplex stainless steel market is projected to reach USD 3.40 billion by 2021”
The duplex stainless steel market was valued at USD 2.70 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 3.40 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.7% between 2016 and 2021. Factors such as cost efficiency, higher corrosion resistance properties, and growing demand from the oil & gas industry are driving the duplex stainless steel market. Rising demand for duplex stainless steel from Europe and Asia-Pacific regions is also expected to drive the market growth. The major restraint for the duplex stainless steel market is the rising cost of raw materials used to manufacture duplex stainless steel.

“The super duplex segment is expected to witness the highest growth from 2016 to 2021”
Based on grade, the super duplex segment is expected to witness the highest growth in the duplex stainless steel market, amongst other grades such as lean duplex and standard duplex. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the fact that super duplex stainless steel is a highly alloyed stainless steel designed for use in aggressive environments. It is designed to handle extreme environments, such as highly corrosive conditions and pressures encountered at great depths in new oil and gas fields. The growing oil and gas exploration around the world is one of the main reasons for the growth of the super duplex stainless steel market.

“The oil & gas segment estimated to be the largest segment of the duplex stainless steel market”
Based on end-use industry, the duplex stainless steel market has been segmented into oil & gas, chemical, desalination, pulp & paper, and construction, among others. The oil & gas segment is estimated to be the largest segment from 2016-2021, due to increasing of duplex stainless steel based products in oil & gas exploration and production activities. The growing oil & gas exploration around the world is significantly boosting the demand for duplex stainless steel in the oil & gas industry.

“The market in Asia-Pacific projected to grow witness highest growth during the forecast period”
