Intelligent Pigging Market Analysis

The Intelligent Pigging Market size is expected to grow from USD 294.27 million in 2023 to USD 395.10 million by 2028, registering a CAGR of 6.07% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

  • Over the medium term, the upcoming pipeline projects and increasing awareness of pipeline safety are expected to drive the market during the forecasted period.
  • On the other hand, the high upfront cost is expected to hinder the market's growth during the forecasted period.
  • Nevertheless, the increasing exploration and production activities for unconventional energy sources such as gas hydrates and shale are expected to create huge opportunities for the intelligent pigging market.
  • North America is expected to be a dominant region for the intelligent pigging market due to the large pipeline infrastructure in the region.

Intelligent Pigging Market Trends

Caliper Pigging Segment to Witness Significant Growth

  • Caliper pigs are designed to measure the internal diameter of pipelines accurately. They provide detailed information about the pipeline's geometry, including variations in diameter, ovality, and dents or deformations. This comprehensive inspection capability is essential for assessing pipelines' integrity and flow capacity.
  • Caliper pigging plays a crucial role in pipeline integrity management. Detecting anomalies such as corrosion, scale buildup, or physical damage helps operators identify areas of concern that require further inspection or maintenance. The ability of caliper pigs to accurately measure wall thickness is particularly valuable for assessing the level of corrosion or erosion in pipelines.
  • Caliper pigs can be used in various types of pipelines, including oil, gas, water, and refined product pipelines. Their versatility and ability to adapt to different pipeline sizes and configurations make them a preferred choice for pipeline inspection across different industries.
  • With the increasing pipeline length globally, the requirement for Caliper Pigging is expected to increase significantly. For instance, as of May 2023, around 21,900 Km of pipelines are under the proposed stage, while more than 9000 KM are under the construction stage.
  • For instance, in September 2022, EUROPIPE, located in Germany, was awarded North American TC Energy (TCE) a contract to supply pipe for the Southeast Gateway Pipeline project in the Gulf of Mexico. TCE is constructing the USD 4.5 billion offshore gas pipeline with the Mexican state-owned power utility Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE).
  • Therefore, as per the above points, Caliper Pigging is expected to play a significant role during the forecasted period.

North America to Dominate the Market

  • The North American region has witnessed significant growth in oil and gas production in recent years, which, in turn, has led to increasing investments in pipeline infrastructure to transfer the produced fossil fuels.
  • Moreover, North America has stringent regulations to ensure the integrity and safety of pipeline infrastructure. Regulatory bodies, such as the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) in the United States and the National Energy Board (NEB) in Canada, mandate regular inspections and maintenance of pipelines. Compliance with these regulations drives the adoption of intelligent pigging technologies.
  • Many pipelines in North America have been in operation for several decades and require regular inspection and maintenance due to aging. Intelligent pigging provides an effective method to assess the condition of these pipelines, identify potential issues, and prioritize maintenance activities.
  • For instance, in February 2023, Kinder Morgan announced that repair work had been completed on a pipeline, and it resumed operations after a leak was detected a few days prior. The pipeline in question is a California gasoline pipeline that supplies unleaded and diesel fuel to storage facilities in southern Nevada.
  • Additionally, North America is at the forefront of technological advancements in intelligent pigging. The region has been a hub for innovation, with companies investing in research and development to enhance the capabilities of intelligent pigging technologies. These advancements attract customers globally and contribute to North America's dominance in the market.
  • Therefore, per the above points, the North American region is expected to dominate the Intelligent Pigging Market during the forecasted period.

Intelligent Pigging Market News

  • January 2023: CDI introduced the Qube, a groundbreaking device transforming the pipeline pig tracking approach. The Qube is an innovative, compact, and robust above-ground monitoring (AGM) solution specifically designed for the oil and gas industry. Its primary function is to detect the presence of pipeline pigs as they traverse the pipelines. Equipped with GPS and magnetic data sensors, the Qube offers remarkable capabilities, allowing it to identify up to eight frequencies of magnetic transmitters attached to the pipeline pigs. Additionally, it can detect MFL magnetizers. With its industrial-grade construction, the Qube ensures reliable performance in demanding environments. This revolutionary device is set to redefine and enhance the efficiency of pipeline pig tracking operations.
  • January 2022: KPTL secured a contract from JSW Utkal Steel Ltd. to install an iron ore slurry pipeline (Spread I) in Odisha Mines. The scope of work includes the laying, testing, pre-commissioning, and commissioning of a 32" x 131 km slurry pipeline. The project also involves the construction of five Pressure Monitoring Stations and two Intermediate Pigging Stations along the pipeline route.
