Flanges Market By Type (Welding Neck, Long Welding Neck, Slip-On, Socket Weld, Lap Joint), By Material (Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Polymer), By End Use Industry, By Region - Global Mraket Forecast 2020-2027
Demand for Flanges to Double as Petrochemical Industry Gathers Momentum
The global flanges market is estimated to grow at a modest CAGR of over 5.5% during the forecast period (2019-2027) and reach a valuation of over US$ 7 Bn. The demand for flanges is expected to gain traction in the near future and is estimated to generate massive revenue sales over the forecast period.
In addition, the growth of the automotive industry is expected to generate robust demand for automotive flanges over the forecast period, primarily due to the rising production of new passenger cars.
Key manufacturers are implementing new manufacturing techniques and using novel materials to manufacture lightweight flanges in the quest to decrease the overall vehicle mass. One of the other main utilizers of refinery and pipeline flanges is the petrochemical industry. Increasing oil consumption in both Asian and North American countries is an important contributor to the growth of the flanges market.
The petrochemical industry will account for a significant share of more than 35% by mid-term forecast in the production of flanges as attachment components in pipes, valves, and pumps.
The petrochemical sector is expected to grow at a rapid pace as the use of flanges in this sector can offer various benefits to valve metering devices and also to separate segments of piping.
