The oil & gas industry is heavily dependent on industrial hoses for offshore and onshore operations. Hoses play a critical role in activities like drilling, transportation of slurries, hydrocarbon transfer etc. Recovery in global crude oil prices since 2020 has boosted capital expenditure in the oil & gas sector. Major players are ramping up investments in oil & gas exploration and production. This is positively impacting the industrial hose market as higher Capex translates to more demand. Additionally, shifting focus towards renewable sources of energy is also augmenting the need for industrial hoses in oilfield services.

Key Developments:

In October 2021, StyroChem Canada, Ltd., one of the leading producers of expandable polystyrene (EPS) was acquired by Epsilyte Holdings LLC. This acquisition is likely to strengthen Epsilyte’s ability to enhance its portfolio through StyroChem’s operational technology and expected to create one of the largest manufacturers of EPS in the North America.

In October 2021, Epsilyte LLC, has increased the prices of its expanded polystyrene grades by USD 110 per ton. The decision has been taken as an effort to stay up with the high supply chain expenses and operational difficulties arising from country’s limited availability of feedstocks.
