Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Operators in the Metal Pipe and Tube Manufacturing industry are standalone producers of metal pipes and other tubular products made from purchased iron or steel. The industry performed well during the first half of the five-year period to 2016, driven by strong exports and rising demand from the domestic energy, nonresidential construction and water infrastructure markets. However, these trends reversed course during the past three years, as domestic demand for steel products in China, India and other burgeoning economies slowed down, causing steel pipe manufacturers in those countries to dump excess inventory into the global market... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

This industry's products are generally categorized according to manufacturing process or type of metal used to form the pipe. In this report, IBISWorld segments industry products according to type of metal, though industry products can also be segmented according to production method.

Segmentation by manufacturing process

There are two main types of metal pipe, welded and seamless, which are made via different manufacturing processes. Welded pipe is manufactured by rolling a flat steel strip into a loop, then welding the meeting edges to form a gapless cylindrical tube. In contrast, seamless pipe is generally formed by forcing a heated steel rod or billet through a system of piercers and dies until a hollowed tube is formed... purchase to read more
