This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Intelligent Pigging Market is accounted for $627.05 million in 2020 and is expected to reach $1,055.04 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period. An increase in the network of the pipeline for oil and gas transportation and increasing government regulations for pipeline inspection are major factors driving the market growth. However, unpiggable pipelines’ rendering intelligent pigging cumbersome is hampering the growth of the market.

Intelligent pigging is a technique for inspecting pipelines using digital technology for keenly understanding the internal condition of pipelines. It is mostly used for gathering important data, like the presence and location of corrosion, bends or irregularities on the inner walls of the pipe. Intelligent pigging helps to clean pipelines by scrapping the sides of the pipe and removing dirt and debris by travelling through pipes. Intelligent pigging service for pipelines is currently in demand due to the complexities led by the mandatory pipeline inspection. With intelligent pigging pipeline operators access the data to mitigate risk and ensure safety effectively by evaluating signs of metal loss, corrosion detection, and other physical defects.

Based on the technology, the magnetic flux leakage (MFL) pigs segment is going to have lucrative growth during the forecast period as the magnetic flux leakage (MFL) based intelligent pigging is used for inspecting and measuring the metal loss in terms of corrosion or gouges. MFL technology is a more preferred technology as it does not require any liquid couplant and magnetic flux leakage pigs can run in both liquid and gas pipelines unlike ultrasonic technology-based intelligent pigs. The MFL technology-based intelligent pigs are mostly implemented as it can measure metal loss or corrosion even for thin-walled pipelines, and achieve accurate measurements for thin-walled pipelines hence the demand for MFL pigs’ increases driving the market growth.

By geography, North America is going to have high growth during the forecast period owing to the presence of the largest pipeline infrastructure across the United States and stringent regulations governing the operations and integrity of pipelines and North America is one of the prominent regions for oil & gas pipeline networks. With the under construction and proposed pipeline networks in North America, the region is known to dominate the intelligent pigging network. With unlocking the hydrocarbon resources in low permeability shale formations, the United States becomes one of the leading producers of oil and gas across the world and is expected to remain the same during the forecast period. Expansion of oil & gas processing frameworks across the United States drives the growth of the North America intelligent pigging market.
