Report Description

Storage Tank Market
Storage Tank Market

The storage tank market is expected to grow at a strong CAGR of around XX% during the forecast period owing to the growing oil and gas industry globally. The oil and gas industry has been the backbone of the industrialized world for more than a century. The oil and gas industry is expanding at an unprecedented rate, with the demand for crude oil, natural gas, and different petroleum products on the rise globally. The increase in demand is being driven by population growth and industrialization in rising economies, mainly in Asia-Pacific. As such, the oil and gasoline industry is continually exploring new sources of oil and gas, which are regularly in remote locations, and the extracted oil and gas needs to be transported to various parts of the world. The oil and gas industry’s bulk transportation necessities have led to a growth in the use of storage tanks as a way of storing these products temporarily before being transported. For instance, in May 2023, according to the report published by India Brand Equity Foundation, the demand for crude oil consumption is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.14% to 500 million tons by FY40 from 202.7 million tons in FY22. In terms of barrels, India’s oil consumption is forecast to rise from 4.05 MBPD in FY22 to 7.2 MBPD in 2030 and 9.2 MBPD in 2050. Natural Gas consumption is forecast to increase at a CAGR of 12.2% to 550 MCMPD by 2030 from 174 MCMPD in 2021. The storage tanks serve as the intermediate point for the crude oil and natural gas production channels. Therefore, the growing oil and gas industry propels the demand for the storage tank market in the coming years.

Some of the major players operating in the market include McDermott; CST Industries; PermianLide; Fox Tank Company; Superior Tank Co. Inc.; Ishii Iron Works Co. Ltd.; Highland Tank & Manufacturing Company Inc.; Emiliana Serbatoi S.r.l.; Sintex Industries Limited; and GMM Pfaudler. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, the aboveground storage tank segment held a dominating share of the market in 2021”

Based on type, the market is bifurcated into aboveground storage tanks and underground storage tanks. The aboveground storage tank category has dominated the market in the historic year and is expected to see the same trend in the forecast period. Aboveground storage tanks are tanks that can be erected above the floor surface and can be cylindrical or square in shape. these kinds of tanks are extensively used within the oil and gas industry, especially for storing crude oil, gasoline, diesel, and other petrochemical products. Moreover, the installation of aboveground storage tanks is less complex in comparison to underground garage tanks. it’s far fairly smooth to construct an AST, and it does not require any excavation work, in contrast to USTs. ASTs are greater accessible for inspection, preservation, and repair. since the tank is positioned above the floor, it is simple to stumble on any leaks, corrosion, or damages that require repair. Additionally, aboveground storage tanks have an extended lifespan as compared to USTs. ASTs are primarily fabricated from metal and covered with materials that prevent corrosion. This coating prolongs the existence of the tank, and it is able to last for decades with regular maintenance and inspection.

“Amongst materials, the steel held the leading segment of the market in 2021”

Based on material, the market is segmented into steel, concrete, polyethylene, and others. Steel is currently the leading segment and is expected to dominate the segment in the forecast period. One of the factors that make steel popular in the storage tank market is its cost-effectiveness, wherein the price of metal storage tanks is quite affordable whilst as compared to different materials. similarly, metal is easy to maintain and repair, making it a super material for long-term use and low preservation charges. For instance, a metal storage tank is Kinder Morgan’s expanded tank storage facility in Houston Texas. The project protected the development of metal storage tanks that have the capability to hold up to 10 million barrels of crude oil. This storage tank project was completed at an envisioned cost of USD 2.5 billion, and the facility is anticipated to function as a crucial distribution hub for refining and petrochemical companies

“Asia Pacific dominated the storage tank market in 2021”

The Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period due to rapid industrialization, increasing population, and urbanization. One of the predominant reasons behind the boom in the storage tank industry within the Asia Pacific region is the increasing demand for oil and gas products. With economies in the region experiencing robust growth, there has been a corresponding increase in demand for energy. This has led to a rapid boom in the exploration and manufacturing of oil and gasoline in the region. As an end result, there has been a corresponding increase in the demand for storage tanks to keep the extracted oil and gasoline. Moreover, the region has also emerged as a supreme producer of chemical substances and petrochemicals. With the boom of industries along with plastics, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics, the demand for storage tanks to store chemicals and petrochemicals has additionally expanded. As an example, China is the world’s largest consumer of chemicals and accounts for more than 40% of worldwide demand. As an end result, the country has seen a vast boom in the storage tank industry. The Asia Pacific region has also seen extensive growth in the manufacturing area. With countries such as China and India becoming major production hubs, there has been a growth in the need for storage tanks to store raw materials, finished products, and commercial waste. for example, chemical producers in the region require huge storage tanks to store raw substances such as methanol and polyethylene.
