Crude oil segment accounted for largest market share in 2022

The crude oil segment accounted for a significant global market share in 2022 and will likely retain its market position throughout the anticipated period. The growth of the segment market can be mainly attributed to the increasing use of crude oil in various applications, including the automobile industry, due to its wide range of advantageous characteristics coupled with the rising prevalence of the product among downstream and midstream sectors.

The gasoline segment is expected to grow at a significant growth rate during the projected period, which is highly attributed to its continuously rising usage as automobile fuel, as it provides high combustion energy compared to others and is being widely used in various other sectors, including construction, landscaping, farming equipment, and forestry among others.

Carbon steel segment held the significant market revenue share in 2022

The carbon steel segment held the largest market revenue share in 2022 because of the high demand and need for carbon steel in manufacturing oil storage tanks due to its high affordability than stainless steel. Tanks, which are constructed with carbon steel, can be easily painted or lined to enhance their water and chemical resistance that, which allows them to hold most types of fluids or even gases more conveniently, which has fueled their popularity among a large number of manufacturers and expected to drive the segment growth at a significant pace.

The fiberglass-reinforced plastic segment is anticipated to expand at a considerable growth rate over the coming years, which is mainly driven by its numerous beneficial features, including inherent corrosion resistance, high strength to the weight ratio, radio frequency interface, and ability to be created in any shape or size very easily. Additionally, as these types of tanks are manufactured with resin, it has smooth walls and is 100% watertight, which prevents contamination and results in excessive water pumping and chemical treatment, which in turn, is boosting the segment market.  

Oil Storage Seg

Floating roof tank segment is expected to witness highest growth during forecast period

The floating roof tank segment is expected to grow at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period. The market's growth can be attributed to the efficient design of the floating roof that helps reduce evaporative losses and corrosion, along with the rapid increase in the demand for storage of medium and low flash point hydrocarbons. Moreover, the advancements in technology and new innovative product launches introduced by major market players will further propel the growth of the segment market.

The fixed roof tank segment led the market in 2022 with a healthy market share due to the high degree of containment of fixed roof oil storage, which reduces the risk of fire incidents and the declining installation costs associated with the fixed-roof design.

Middle East & Africa region dominated the global market in 2022

The Middle East & Africa region dominated the global market in 2022 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the anticipated period due to the robust presence of huge fossil fuel resources in the region and the high dependence of GDP on crude oil production and various refineries. Moreover, the extensive rise in the demand for petroleum products, including kerosene, petrol, and diesel, in emerging economies has encouraged the government and private organizations to invest heavily in installing new storage facilities across the region.

Asia Pacific region is anticipated to register the highest growth in the global market over the study period, with China and India accounting for the highest market share in the area. The increasing demand for oil and gas from the major economies, as a result of extensive rise in the population and rapid boom in the automotive and transportation industry coupled with the rising investments in various offshore and onshore activities, are further likely to fuel the demand and growth of the regional market.
