Mechanical tubing is a hollow cylindrical vessel usually of circular cross-section used to convey flowable substances such as liquids and gases, powders, slurries, and small solid masses. It is used in machined or formed parts of automobiles, farm machinery, playground and recreational equipment, canopies and shade structures, aviation, transportation, materials handling, and household equipment. Mechanical tubing is also available in square, rectangle, oval, D-shaped, and other cross sections. It is generally made of materials such as steel, iron, aluminum, copper, and plastics. Increase in construction of new pipelines for oil & gas, water and wastewater, irrigation; replacement of aging pipelines; and infrastructure development are major factors driving the global mechanical tubing market. Rise in oil & natural gas price index and increase in oil & gas exploration activities are expected to boost the demand for seamless and welded pipes in the oil & gas industry. Rise in price of steel has made purchase of steel and iron costlier for many manufacturers of mechanical tubes and pipes. Increase in prices of steel is anticipated to adversely affect the manufacture...
