Pipeline Monitoring Systems Market By Technology (Perimeter Intrusion Detection, Ultrasonic, Pig Tracking, Smart Ball, Magnetic Flux Leakage, Others), By Vertical (Oil & Gas, Water & Wastewater (Utilities), Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Mishaps in the Oil and Gas Industry Will Drive Demand for Pipeline Monitoring Systems Around the World

The global pipeline monitoring systems market is expected to reach $8.62 billion by 2026, expanding at a 6.9% CAGR from 2018 to 2026. Expanding the pipeline network for the transportation of petroleum products is identified as the major factor driving demand for pipeline monitoring systems worldwide. In addition, stringent regulatory policies that mandate the safe handling of petroleum products during transportation are further stimulating demand for monitoring solutions. Accidental mishaps like the explosion in a gas pipeline in Minnesota have convinced oil-producing companies to adopt automated solutions for end-to-end monitoring of pipeline infrastructure and pipeline operations. On the other hand, limited funds for upgrading aging pipeline infrastructure and the high installation cost of these systems are the major challenges faced by the global pipeline monitoring systems market.

Market Synopsis

Regulated Demand from the Oil and Gas Industry to Drive Growth Prospects

Oil and gas represent the largest end-use segment in the global market for pipeline monitoring systems. It is expected to register the fastest growth during the forecast period, witnessing a growth of 7.2% CAGR during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The growth in this segment will be driven by the perpetually growing demand for natural gas and the increasing production of shale gas worldwide. Today, the global natural gas pipeline network spans approximately 2.8 million kilometers. With several forthcoming gas pipeline projects, the pipeline network is expected to expand across the globe in the coming years. The capacity expansion of pipeline projects will fuel demand for pipeline monitoring solutions. Increasing transportation of finished products such as LPG, gasoline, high-speed diesel, and aviation turbine fuel offers strong growth prospects for monitoring solutions in this segment over the forecast period.

North America to Dominate; Asia Pacific to Witness Strong Growth

In terms of value contribution, North America was the largest pipeline monitoring systems market worldwide in 2017. The pipeline network of over 2.3 million km transports over 70% of the natural gas, crude oil, and other petroleum products in North America. With several upcoming pipeline projects, the network is estimated to expand. Pipeline network expansion, coupled with perpetual growth in oil and gas production, is expected to spur demand for pipeline monitoring solutions in the region. In addition, stringent regulations that mandate the use of monitoring solutions for applications, including leak detection, ground movement monitoring, and external interference monitoring, bode well for the market's growth in the region.

For instance, in October 2015, the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration passed a regulation that mandates the use of monitoring solutions for pipelines carrying hazardous products. The pipeline monitoring systems market in North America will also benefit from the replacement of obsolete systems with state-of-the-art equivalents. Due to growing environmental concerns and pipeline network expansion in these regions, Asia Pacific and MEA are expected to grow faster during the forecast period. The upcoming deal between India and Iran for an undersea gas pipeline worth US$ 4.5 billion, for example, will increase demand for new pipeline monitoring solution installations.

Small-ball technology is slated to yield favorable gains.

Ultrasonics is the most preferred technology used for pipeline monitoring. Thus, the value contribution of the ultrasonic technology segment was the highest in the global pipeline monitoring systems market in 2017. The dominance of ultrasonic technology is largely credited to its widespread usage in the oil and gas industry, especially for leakage detection applications. Smart ball technology, on the other hand, is poised for rapid adoption due to superior features such as easy deployment (easy distribution of balls through pipelines) and long inspection capability in a single use. In addition, the technology is also gaining prominence among oil and gas producers for detecting leakages.
