Availability of Cheaper Alternatives to Steel May Impede the Steel Tubes Market Growth
Despite the increased use of steel tubes in residential as well as industrial sectors, end-users are constantly looking for cheaper and more efficient alternatives for steel tubes. Growing availability of iron and plastic is leading to the emergence of iron and plastic tubes in the end-user industries, which are much cheaper than steel tubes. Furthermore, modern designs and characteristics of plastic tubes provide more efficiency in several end-use applications. This may lead to replacing steel tubes with plastic or iron tubes, thereby impeding growth of the steel tubes market in the upcoming years.
Steel tubes and steel pipes are among the most commonly used components in a wide range of industrial sectors, such as construction, mining, oil & gas, and manufacturing industries. Steel tubes are used in various industrial processes, such as carrying high temperature fluids and gases, which is triggering its demand. Steel tube manufacturers are adopting advanced processes to improve performance characteristics of steel tubes and preventing them from oxidation and rusting.
