The report is useful for OCTG products manufacturers, suppliers and wholesalers of seamless and welded pipes and tubes, and new players venturing in the market.
The demand for oil, gas and energy has been increasing at much faster pace than expected over the past many years, mainly owing to the thriving middle-class population and globalization. Additionally, technological innovations and rapid economic expansion in the developing countries including India and China are some of the other important factors that have been guiding the demand for energy. This increased appetency for energy has led to growth in oil exploration, production and drilling activities and rise in crude oil and natural gas prices. Additionally, improved investments in oil and gas exploration have further fuelled the oil and gas industry. These factors together have catalyzed the growth and development of Oil Country and Tubular Goods.
The global market for OCTG products has grown at a noticeable rate over the past few years, mainly due to the surging demand for oil and natural gas coupled with increasing investments in the exploration and production activities led by rise in crude oil prices. The global OCTG market marked a CAGR of 5.1% over the period of 2008-2013 and reached a figure worth USD ~ million in 2013 in terms of sales revenue. The global OCTG market was led by China with a stupendous share of ~% in terms of revenue. Asia OCTG market contributed a share of ~% in the total global revenue of OCTG market in 2013. Additionally, this region accounted for consumption volume of ~ million tons of OCTG products in 2013, which has grown from ~ million tons in 2008. The consumption of seamless and welded OCTG products has been majorly driven by the stupendous drilling activities in the Middle-East. The top three OCTG consuming countries Saudi Arabia, Iran and Kuwait accounted for ~% of the total OCTG consumption in Middle East in the year 2013.
