Executive Summary

The GCC Stainless Steel Pipes and Tubes market was valued at USD 1671.32 Million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.38% during the forecast period of 2023-2028. The market for stainless steel pipes and tubes is driven by its properties, rising infrastructural spending backed by increasing GDP, and a high number of oil reserves in the region.

As per OPEC analysis, GCC countries account for 25% of crude oil production. GCC countries have combined proven reserves of 497 billion barrels of crude oil, representing approximately 34% of the world’s estimated proven crude oil reserves. The increasing demand and production of oil and gas in the region in recent years gave rise to several seamless pipeline projects and reducing carbon footprint by up to 40%. Seamless stainless steel pipes are finished to dimensional and wall thickness specifications in sizes from 1/8 inch to 26 inch OD, suitable for high pressure applications in the oil and gas sector, hydrocarbon industries and refineries.

There are currently more than USD 2.3 trillion of known planned and un-awarded projects in the pipeline in the GCC. With the construction sector in the GCC markets booming due to the ever-increasing investments into mega projects in Saudi and UAE, the demand for stainless steel pipes and tubes is expected to grow consistently, post Covid pandemic period.

Among GCC countries, Saudi Arabia is the leader in steel production. In the Kingdom, Neom (the Kingdom’s flagship project), the Red Sea Project, and Qiddiya (the capital of entertainment) are some of the key mega projects shaping the infrastructure and construction roadmap. For instance, Saudi Vision 2030 is a government plan to reduce the country’s dependence on oil and diversify its economy via large investments providing steel companies such as Al-Jazera, Rezayat Group, with high demand for stainless steel pipes and tubes.

Moreover, Qatar, Kuwait, and Bahrain have a large pipeline of projects that include expansions to oil and gas sector production capacity, new residential and commercial real estate, upgrades to transport, power, and water systems and major industrial developments. For instance, MAN Industries (India) Limited has been awarded an order worth USD 209 million from Kuwait that will supply 170,000 Tons of HSAW and LSAW pipes to the Gulf state. As a result, manufacturers can meet a wide range of distinct demands by using various alloy mix proportions and offering a variety of shapes for various purposes.
