Growth in Oil and Gas Exploration Activities Increases Demand for Oil Country Tubular Goods

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global OCTG Market: Trends & Opportunities (2012-2017)" report to their offering.

Globally, the increasing need for energy has led to growth in oil and gas exploration and production activities and it has resulted in the growing demand for Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) products. OCTG can be produced as seamless or welded tube and pipe. Seamless OCTG tubes/pipes are mostly used for oil and gas exploration and production as the seamless process can achieve higher grades and heavier wall thicknesses than welding can. Growth of the market is backed by growth in crude oil prices, rising global demand for oil and natural gas and increase in number of drill rigs. Factors that are holding back market growth are environmental and regulatory issues in addition to depletion of limited oil and gas reserves.

The major trends observed in the OCTG market globally include growth in global rig count, rise in horizontal drilling, seamless pipe capacity development and worldwide rig count development. The most important markets for oil and tubular goods markets globally are the U.S., China and Russia, accounting for majority of OCTG consumption every year. Major companies operating in OCTG-seamless, welded, drill pipes and coating materials production are National Oil Company, Tenaris S.A., Vallourec S.A. and TMK Group. These companies dominate the in global OCTG market and are expanding their reach in various geographies to get a share of the growing markets.
