What Issues Do Engineering Pipe Hanger and Support Manufacturers Encounter?

There are a few drawbacks that affect engineering pipe hanger and support manufacturers: installation of pipe hangers and supports need space, but a few installers make the mistake of placing the supports and hangers too far apart from each other, which leads to variable distribution of the load to the support and bending of the pipes. Such issues ca directly lead to a disaster.

Each and every support and bearing is made to carry a specific amount of load, and if the load exceeds that limit, it could lead to rupturing the whole pipeline and creating a huge mess.

Category-wise Insights

Why are Variable Spring Hangers and Supports a Better Choice?

Variable spring hangers and supports hold over 27% of the total market share. This product type is used for better support under thermal expansion and other factors that may cause the pipe support to shift. They are costlier to install but are safer than other product types.

Variable supports are typically installed where thermal movement causes the system position and dimensions to change. Variable spring hangers and supports have a high load capacity, which may vary from 0.2kN to 250kN, and may also vary according to requirements.

Which End-use Vertical Holds Lucrative Growth Prospects for Engineering Pipe Hanger and Support Suppliers?

Power generation plants, which is the most lucrative end-use application, represented over 27% demand for engineering pipe hangers and supports in 2020.

Power generation plants hold major share due to the use of pipe hangers and supports majorly in the sector for transporting raw fluid, such as water, for the generation of electricity in nuclear power plants.

Apart from power generation plants, oil and gas refineries are a high-growth sector due to the use of pipe supports and hangers in different weather conditions. They are engineered for the roof top support of pipelines. These supports are very much used to bear the load of crude and refined oil and gas at refineries.

COVID-19 Crisis Impact

COVID-19 has affected the global economy and resulted in a significant decline in demand for products and raw materials that are produced by various major industries across regions.

In Asia Pacific, China is a major supplier and manufacturer of engineering pipe hangers and supports and their accessories. Due to government restrictions, major suppliers and manufacturers reduced their manufacturing capacities. Also due, to a slump in most end-use sectors, sales of engineering pipe hangers and supports were affected.

The major aorta of growth plummeting was witnessed during the initial 3 quarters of 2020, wherein, stalling in implementation of ongoing projects with resultant disruptions in production and supply of the product was observed. Rebound in market growth is however expected to occur in the 3-4 quarters of the coming fiscal owing to resumption of installation activities in ongoing projects as well as demand from new orders.

Competitive Landscape

Majority of companies discussed in the report have focused on product diversification with additional provision of customized solutions for respective clients. This measure has not only enabled stronghold in business footprint but also ushered as a value added proposition for players in offering premium prototypes.

Market participants have also employed organic and inorganic growth strategies including innovation, strategic collaborations and partnerships with regional enterprises, and acquisitions to consolidate and expand footprint in regional markets, as well as optimization of supply chain.
