Global Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) Market Analysis

Oil Country Tubular Goods (OCTG) refers to family of steel tubes and casings which are primarily used for exploration and production of oil and gas. OCTG includes drill pipe, casing and tubing subjected to loading conditions according to their specific application. OCTG are produced as seamless or welded tube and pipe. The key difference between the two is that seamless OCTG can achieve higher grades and heavier wall thickness whereas welded OCTG cannot be used under challenging oil and gas exploration environments.

Increasing appetency for energy has led to growth in oil production and exploration activities and rise in global crude oil prices has been supporting the increased investment in oil and gas exploration, which in turn, has catalyzed the demand for OCTG products and thereby growth of OCTG market. However, there are factors that are holding back the market including environmental and regulatory issues, barriers to entry and depletion of limited oil and gas resources. The major trends observed in the OCTG market globally include growth in global rig count, rise in E&P activities, and seamless pipe capacity development.
