Intelligent Pigging Market Size, Competitive Landscape, and Key Country Analysis to 2029

Posted by Nikhil Sharma on July 21st, 2022

The Intelligent Pigging Market Was Valued At USD 694.30 Million In 2021 And Is Expected To Reach USD 1111.63 Million By 2029, Registering A CAGR Of 4.50% During The Forecast Period Of 2022-2029.

The Intelligent Pigging Market and Size

Over the forecast period, there should be opportunities for the intelligent pigging market to expand due to the expansion of pipeline infrastructure. The accumulation of deposits in pipes is one of the most important issues with flow assurance that oil and gas pipeline operators must deal with. The expense spent by the operators to maintain desired flow rates is severely impacted by any disruption to the interior pipe surface, such as paraffin wax or a buildup of scale, hydrate, asphaltenes, or other corrosive elements. The oil and gas industry is using intelligent pigging as part of its Programme for pipeline inspection and maintenance since it is a smart option.

Intelligent Pigging Market Dynamics


  • Continually Improving Inspection Technologies

The original equipment manufacturers and vendors are continuously upgrading their pipeline inspections and maintenance by spending in research and development due to the expanding integration of automation technology. Modern sophisticated pigging methods allow for effective diagnosis of pipeline flow. Providers of intelligent pigging services are continuously searching for dents and deformations that pipeline operators employ.


  • Increased Investments in Pipeline Projects

The growing investments in pipeline projects especially in oil and gas sector are estimated to generate lucrative opportunities for the market, which will further expand the intelligent pigging market's growth rate in the future.

  • Advancements in Inspection Technologies

The market expansion of intelligent pigging is anticipated to be favored by leading companies' advancements in inspection technologies. For instance, Indian Oil introduced a new intelligent pigging analysis programme in September 2019 that is powered by artificial intelligence. Alethe Consulting's MASS platform serves as the foundation for the new intelligent pigging analysis programme. Therefore, the introduction of sophisticated inspection technologies will also offer numerous growth opportunities within the market.


  • High Costs

Intelligent pigging technologies such as UT, MFL, and EMAT typically cost a lot of money and demand significant capital inputs, which makes it difficult for developing nations such as India and the ASEAN countries to adopt them. Numerous pipeline operators choose cost-effective alternatives instead of smart or intelligent pigging services due to the high cost of these services, thusthe market for intelligent pigging will be hampered due to this factor.

  • Low Awareness

A few kilometers of the inspection through intelligent pigging can be completed in a matter of days, but a thorough analysis of the data may require more than 90 days. Any anomalies that develop inside the pipeline during this time are ignored, and another inspection cycle may begin much later. Software modules created by some businesses shorten the time needed to examine vast amounts of acquired data. Intelligent pigging market participants still find data processing jobs to take longer than data collecting duties, which poses as a major challenge for the market growth.
