According to Custom Market Insights (CMI), The Global Fibre Reinforced Plastic Pipes Market Size was valued at USD 2.2 Billion in 2021 and is estimated to reach USD 3.9 Billion by the end of 2030 at a CAGR of approximately 6.7% during the forecast period 2022-2030.

The FRP, or reinforced plastic, is a sophisticated material of a complex polymer matrix reinforced with various fiber types, such as glass, carbon, basalt, etc. The polymer becomes a reinforced polymer after being combined with fiber. Numerous industries use these fibers, including aerospace, building, and automobiles.

The wrapping of glass using fiber filaments to create the FRP pipes results in non-metallic materials. Epoxy resin and a heat-curing agent are blended to create these fibers. The FRP pipes are used in piping systems, tankers, ship compartments, etc. The pipe’s diameter and bending angle change depending on the need.

The increase in technological advancements drives market growth

Global demand for FRP pipes has increased as a result of technological advances made in response to the needs of a large customer base.

The increased investments in R&D activities propel the market growth

The industry is poised to grow both in the foreseeable term and during the forecast period due to rising investments in research and development activities and the rise of significant players in this industry.

The increased demand and popularity of reliable and lightweight FRP pipes fuel the market growth.

The market growth for FRP polymers is driven by a significant demand for dependable, lightweight pipes that are also produced at a low cost. In addition, FRP pipes are reliable for use across many industries, including oil and gas, thanks to their necessary qualities.

Restraints 

The increase in environmental concerns regarding the recycling process can hamper the market growth for FRP polymers. The recycling of FRP composites is a severe concern for the environment. Moreover, the fluctuating price of the raw materials for manufacturing reinforced pipes can restrain the market growth for FRP polymers. Apart from that, processing the fiber-reinforced polymer can be detrimental to human health in various ways, and such factors hinder the market growth for FRP polymers.

Opportunities

The FRP-based industries hold ample opportunities for several other companies to flourish, including the end-user industries. Moreover, as per the increase in popularity for the wide usage of FRP polymers, various FRP-based industries tend to upgrade their level in the market, which can be helpful for market growth. 

Challenges 

The processing of reinforced fiber polymers is a crucial but complex process that can create numerous challenges in the growth of the FRP pipes market. Before the preparation, the estimation of the accurate measurements along with the degree of hardness should be done for the proper production; otherwise, it can lead to severe difficulties. Furthermore, improper accounting can also lead to functional damage, which can be challenging for the market.

Market Highlights

According to fiber type, the glass fiber segment has dominated the market with a market share of 66% in 2021 and is anticipated to increase in value over the forecast period. Several factors make glass fiber the best composite material for polymers. Glass fiber also has a chemical inertness quality, which prevents FRP structures from corrosion.

According to end-user analysis, the sewage segment accounted for 40% of the revenue share. The market is anticipated to grow during the forecast period at a considerable CAGR. This is attributed to the vast variety of sewage pollutants present in varying concentrations. In addition, the sturdy and rigid sewage pipes that transport the wastewater can hold a range of densities, particle sizes, and stiffness.

Regional Snapshots

The Asia-Pacific took the lead in the RFP market in the region in 2021 and is expected to maintain this lead during the projected period. The rapid development of oil and gas operations in Asia-Pacific and the rapid increase of construction activities are responsible for the market growth in those areas.

Additionally, the high R&D activity investments and technological breakthroughs in these areas play a significant role in the market expansion. China accounts for the most critical market share in APAC, accounting for 39% of total market revenue. Numerous construction sectors in China use FRP composites.
