Vacuum Insulated Pipe Market Goes Mainstream: A Deep Dive into Large Bore Applications

Vacuum insulated pipes (VIPs) are quickly becoming the preferred solution for transporting cryogenic fluids in the LNG and industrial gas sectors. VIPs are thermally efficient and can transport liquefied natural gas (LNG) and other cryogenic fluids at extremely low temperatures with minimal heat loss. As a result, VIPs are becoming increasingly popular in these industries due to their ability to reduce energy consumption, minimize environmental impact, and improve safety.

VIPs are used to transport cryogenic fluids such as LNG, liquid nitrogen, and liquid oxygen. They consist of a cylindrical inner pipe, a vacuum layer, and an outer casing. The vacuum layer provides excellent insulation, minimizing heat transfer between the inner and outer pipes. The result is a pipe that can transport cryogenic fluids over long distances with minimal heat loss and energy consumption.

Large bore VIPs are particularly useful in the LNG and industrial gas sectors. They can transport large volumes of cryogenic fluids over long distances, reducing the need for additional infrastructure such as storage tanks and vaporizers. Large bore VIPs are also more efficient than traditional insulated pipes, reducing energy consumption and minimizing greenhouse gas emissions.

The market for large bore VIPs is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. A recent report by Market Research Future estimates that the global market for large bore VIPs will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% between 2020 and 2027. The report cites the increasing demand for LNG and industrial gases, as well as the growing focus on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, as the primary drivers of this growth.

The report also notes that the Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the largest market for large bore VIPs, due to the increasing demand for LNG in countries such as China, India, and Japan. North America and Europe are also expected to be significant markets for large bore VIPs, driven by the growth of the shale gas industry and the increasing demand for renewable energy sources.

In conclusion, the use of large bore vacuum insulated pipes is becoming increasingly mainstream in the LNG and industrial gas sectors due to their energy efficiency, environmental sustainability, and safety benefits. As the demand for cryogenic fluids continues to grow, the market for large bore VIPs is expected to expand significantly, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.
