The Pipeline Construction industry builds transport infrastructure that supports the activities of the Oil and Gas Extraction industry, Pipeline Transport industry and Gas Supply industry, as well as providing services to the Manufacturing division. Demand for pipeline construction services is derived from investment trends in these industries, which has meant stable to moderate growth over past decades. Pipelines are expensive to build and maintain. Investment in major construction is lumpy and undertaken to support new projects, while expansion work to meet domestic demand is a more consistent source of industry revenue.
Businesses in this industry are primarily engaged in building pipelines for the transport of oil and gas, urban supply mains for gas, pipelines for refined petroleum products and non-hydrocarbon products such as chemicals and foodstuffs. The construction of pipeline networks is excluded from the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
