Seamless Stainless Steel Product
- Seamless stainless steel products are products without seams. These products are generally manufactured by adopting the hot forming process through either extrusion or drawing. Seamless steel products are primarily factory-made using hot working steel.
- Seamless stainless steel products provide multiple advantages, which have contributed to the rising demand for these products. Improved ability to sustain high pressures is one of the distinct advantages of seamless stainless steel products. In case of welded products, the welded joint is the weakest point for sustaining pressure. This reduces the pressure resistance capability of products. It is much simpler to calculate pressure ratings without the need for considering the quality of the weld in case of seamless stainless steel products.
- Seamless stainless steel products are comparatively thinner and lighter than welded products. This results in reduced cost. Thus, seamless stainless steel products are cost effective.
- Seamless stainless steel products possess a perfectly round cross-section, which makes installation and addition of fittings much simpler as they are manufactured through the uninterrupted extrusion process
Key Drivers of Global Seamless Stainless Steel Products Market
- Demand for seamless stainless steel products has been increasing owing to the rise in urbanization and industrialization across the globe. Advantages of seamless stainless steel products over welded products are also likely to boost the seamless stainless steel products market in the next few years.
- Growth in oil & gas exploration activities and food & beverage sector is anticipated to increase the demand for seamless stainless steel products during the forecast period. However, high cost of seamless stainless steel products is estimated to hamper the market in the near future.
