North America to be a Significant Regional Market for Intelligent Pigging

North America is anticipated to be one of the dominant markets for intelligent pigging services, owing to greater magnetic flux leakage technology adoption and increasing demand for flexible products. The market is driven by stringent regulations about the operations and integrity of pipelines. Natural gas and petroleum are the two energy sources in the United States. North America is investing heavily in oil and gas pipeline projects to fulfil the growing demand for energy resources. Vast consumers of natural gas in the region and large oil and gas industries, and the adoption of regulations on the safety of robust pipeline networks are creating a high demand for intelligent pigging in this region. Developments in technologies like Acoustic Resonance Technology (ART) and inertial measurements add an advantage to the intelligent pigging industry's growth in this region. The occurrence of the world's most significant pipeline infrastructure will further augment the growth of the intelligent pigging system industry in the region during the forecast period. Also, the growing demand for pipelines as a more economical mode of transporting liquids and petroleum products than other alternative options is further anticipated to propel the growth of the intelligent pigging system industry in the region in the coming years.

 

Magnetic Flux Leakage Pigs Holds the Largest Market Share

Magnetic flux leakage pigs technology is likely to hold the largest share of the intelligent pigging industry in the next few years. The magnetic flux leakage (MFL) based intelligent pigging is used to inspect and measure the metal loss in corrosion or gouges. Magnetic flux leakage pig’s technology is widely preferred as MFL pigs can run in liquid and gas pipelines. Unlike ultrasonic technology-based intelligent pigs, it does not require any liquid couplant. The MFL technology-based intelligent pigs can measure metal loss or corrosion even for thin-walled pipelines. In contrast, ultrasonic technology-based intelligent pigs fail to achieve accurate measurements for thin-walled pipelines.

 

Market Segmentation

Intelligent pigging is a method of cleaning and inspecting pipelines using non-destructive methods, such as ultrasonic testing and magnetic flux techniques. Initially, the pig was intended to clear dirt and debris from pipes, but as technology progressed, intelligent pigs became more accessible. These are now utilised in the pipeline to detect stress corrosion cracking, pitting corrosion, gouges, dents, and longitudinal fractures.

Stringent Government and Industry Regulations Augmenting the Market Growth

The intelligent pigging sector is predicted to be driven by government and industry restrictions and the increasing use of petroleum products and natural gas. The intelligent pigging sector is expected to grow soon as pipeline operators become more aware of pipeline maintenance and frequent inspection benefits. The oil and gas industry has witnessed significant pipeline damage incidents, resulting in significant product loss and accidents. A Texas gas explosion, for example, killed two people and injured two more in June 2021[PM1]. As a result, oil and gas businesses must ensure that pipeline infrastructure is in good working order. The intelligent pigging industry is expected to be driven by concerns about pipeline safety. Other significant factors that are expected to boost the growth of the intelligent pigging system market include the rise in the network of pipelines for oil and gas transportation across the globe. The increased demand for inspection is further anticipated to propel the growth of the intelligent pigging system market. Moreover, the dependability and efficiency of smart pigs to help detect flaws that could impact the operational efficiency of the pipeline are further estimated to cushion the growth of the intelligent pigging system market.
