The Indian pipe industry with presence across all the categories of pipes (steel, cement and plastic) has become a major exporting hub to the regions like Middle East, US and Europe due to its locational advantage and global accreditations. Also, the lower oil and gas pipeline penetration level in India provides huge opportunity for laying new pipeline infrastructure in the country, considering its vast geographical area.

The operating environment for the Indian pipe industry was challenging during FY2012. The steel pipe companies expanded their capacities domestically as well as globally during the last couple of years, which led to excess capacities. Hence, most of the domestic players had to resort to lower margin orders domestically to maintain their order books. The higher input and finance costs significantly eroded their profitability margins.

CARE Research expects the demand for Indian pipe industry to improve from FY2014 & remain healthy over the longer term, both on the global as well as domestic fronts, on the back of increasing demand arising from oil & gas and infrastructure projects. Enhanced global energy demand arising from increasing population and economic spending in the emerging markets will lead to need for higher exploration and production (E&P) activity, giving boost to the demand for steel pipe segment. Shale gas discovery is likely to increase demand for pipeline infrastructure globally. Pipe Industry

CARE Research's report on the ‘Indian Pipe Industry' seeks to answer questions such as: what is the estimated steel and plastic pipes demand over the next five years? what are the current levels of SAW, ERW, DI and seamless pipe capacities expected capacities? what is the estimated domestic and global demand for pipes from oil & gas segment? what is the estimated SAW pipe demand arising from replacement market? what are the key cost components incurred by the Indian pipe companies? what are the price realization trend for major pipe players?

CARE Research also provides outlook on the pipes industry demand including exports demand. We have estimated demand within each segment of steel pipes like SAW, Seamless, DI pipes etc. The report takes into account several initiatives undertaken by the Indian government to provide basic water supply and sanitation and also emphasizes on oil and gas sector expansion plans domestically and globally.
