Growth Opportunities in North American FRP Pipe Market 2010 - 2015: Trends, Forecast and Opportunity Analysis, January 2010
Growth of FRP pipe use in last ten years has been steep because of its advantages over pipes made of traditional materials like materials like iron, concrete and plastics. Its superior mechanical and anti-corrosion properties, low conductivity, longer life cycle makes FRP pipes a natural choice both for general purpose as well as in specialty applications. With increasing cost of iron and steel, FRP pipe has also emerged competitive in large diameter pipe market, in high-pressure areas and in elaborate pipe networks extending over several thousand kilometers.

North America, one of the largest industry bases in the world, has extensive application of FRP pipes in areas like chemical, oil & gas, offshore, sewage and retail fuel. Several billion dollars of investment are made every year in transmission of natural gas, crude oil and hazardous chemical. The market typically is dominated by few players with several small sized players. It also has an interesting mix of epoxy based, polyester resin based and vinyl ester based FRP pipes and is distinctively different from another big market in Asia. This report provides present scenario of NA FRP Pipe market in terms of market size, application breakdown and market leaders in FRP pipe in North America. It also analyses the FRP pipe in NA in terms of market competition, opportunities, growth areas and challenges and drivers. While the overall growth in this market has been impressive in the past one decade, showed signs of slowing down in 2008. According to this report in the next 5 years that is by 2015, the total FRP pipe consumption in NA is expected to continue a strong growth momentum of 5.9% CAGR. The FRP pipe market in North America is expected to reach $ 563.1M by 2015

The economic crisis starting 3Q 2008 that affected almost all the industries world over also affected the FRP pipe market.
