Trends, opportunities, and forecast in composites in the global oil and gas market to 2026 by end use application (pipes, tanks, pultruded products, frac plugs and frac balls, and others), resin type (epoxy composites, polyester composites, phenolic composites, and polyethylene composites), and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World)

The future of the composites in the oil and gas industry looks promising with opportunities in pipes, tanks, pultruded products, frac plugs and frac balls, and others. The composites in the global oil and gas industry declined in 2020 due to the global economic recession led by COVID-19. However, the market will witness recovery in the year 2021, and it is expected to reach an estimated $1.4 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2026. The major drivers of growth for this market are increasing oil and gas drilling and exploration activities in future.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, are the emergence of introduction of carbon fiber for oil and gas applications and on-site construction of FRP pipes to any length and diameter which exclude transportation and installation cost. Owens corning, Jushi, CPIC, Nippon Electric Glass Co. Ltd., Huntsman, Hexion, and Olin Corporation are among the leading players of composites material in global oil and gas industry.

The study includes trends and forecast for the composites in the global oil and gas industry by end use industry, by product, and region as follows:

By End Use Application [Volume (M lbs) and $M shipment analysis from 2015 to 2026]:
• Pipes
• Tanks
• Pultruded Products
• Frac Plugs and Frac Balls
• Others

By Resin Type [Volume (M lbs) and $M shipment analysis from 2015 to 2026]:
• Epoxy Composites
• Polyester Composites
• Phenolic Composites
• Polyethylene Composites

By Region [Volume (M lbs) and $M shipment analysis from 2015 to 2026]:
• North America
• Europe
• Asia Pacific
• Rest of the world
In this market, polyester, epoxy, phenolic, and polyethylene composites are the materials used to manufacture various composite parts for oil and gas industry. The analyst predicts that the demand for epoxy composites is expected to experience the highest growth in the forecast period, supported by its high performance characteristics such as low shrinkage, excellent adhesion, effective electrical insulation, high chemical, and solvent resistance properties.

Within the composites in the oil and gas industry, pipe application is expected to remain as the largest market by value and volume consumption and it is also expected to experience the highest growth in the forecast period. Increases in oil and gas production and exploration activity on both onshore and offshore production sites have increased the demand for pipes are the major driving forces that spur the growth for this segment over the forecast period.

North America is expected to remain the largest market due to growth in natural gas infrastructure projects, and awareness on the advantages of composite materials for oil and gas over traditional material.
