Global Pipeline Transportation Market is valued approximately USD 11.8 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 10% over the forecast period 2019-2026. Pipeline transportation is the mode of long-distance transport of gas (natural gas) or liquid (crude oil, water, gasoline) through a system of pipes. Pipelines can be used to carry natural gas to homes, jet fuel to airports and crude oil to refineries. Due to the volatile flammable nature of oil and natural gas, transportation has to be carried out as safely as possible. In this regard, pipelines transportation greatly minimizes the risk of explosion during transportation. Apart from this, pipelines can transport large amount of oil and gas more efficiently as compared to conventional shipments such as truck, rail or ships. Thus, surging demand for oil worldwide is one of the key driving forces of the market growth. According to the International Energy Agency, the global oil demand in the third quarter of 2019 grew by 1.1 million barrels a day representing more than double the 435,000 barrels a day in 2018. Moreover, as per the United States Energy Information Administration, the global demand for petroleum and other liquids is expected to grow from 98.11 million barrels per day in 2017 to 102.58 million barrels per day by 2020. This growth in the petroleum and oil demand worldwide is anticipated to increase the adoption of pipeline transportation. Further, increasing need for secure and reliable connectivity for transportation of liquid or gaseous products over long distance is further contributing towards market growth. Apart from this, increasing demand for oilfield communication is expected to create significant growth opportunity in the market over the forecast period. However, stringent regulatory norms impede the growth of the market over the forecast period of 2019-2026.
