U.S. Mining And Oil & Gas Fasteners Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Fasteners are an important component of the mining and oil & gas sector and come in a variety of forms and sizes. They are also utilized in the construction of storage facilities and for flange and valve fastening in oil & gas pipelines. The growing oil & gas industry is likely to create upswings for market growth over the forecast period.

Metal fasteners are preferred over other materials in the oil & gas industry since oil rig operations feature some of the most stringent operational specifications of any industry. The remote, difficult-to-reach reserves situated beneath the seabed necessitate rapid and deep drilling. The key joints are subjected to ever-increasing shock, vibration, and temperature that metal fasteners can withstand, creating upswings for the metal fasteners for mining and oil & gas industry growth over the assessment period.

The U.S. is a key market for mining and oil & gas fasteners in North America owing to the presence of large mining and oil & gas fields.  Moreover, U.S. is one of the major consumers of oil & gas across the globe. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration, approximately 98.8 million barrels per day of petroleum and liquids were consumed in July 2021 which was 6 million barrels per day more than the consumption of July 2020.

The mining industry plays a crucial role in the economic growth of the country. The U.S. is the largest producer of rare earth metal concentrates in the world, followed by China. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the estimated value of minerals produced by the mines in the country accounted for USD 83.2 billion in 2020. Furthermore, there was a 36% increase in the production of rare earth minerals in 2020 in the country than the minerals produced in 2019.

Thus, the development in the U.S. mining industry is expected to drive the demand for fasteners for equipment such as cranes, masts, mud pumps, and engines. Fasteners are also used for flange and valve bolting in oil & gas pipelines. Growing petroleum-based E&P generation in the U.S. has been a major factor contributing to the increasing demand for oil & gas equipment used across various plants and their maintenance in the country.

The growing demand for minerals is expected to boost the demand for fastening products in the mining industry. Mining support fasteners are used in the construction and maintenance of tunnels, entrances, and exits to the mines. Furthermore, mining and excavation fasteners are used in plant and equipment and repair & maintenance. They are also used in crushing machines, quarry and opencast, conveyor equipment, drilling, and screeners among others.

Product Insights

Based on product, the externally threaded segment commanded the largest share of 47.3% in the mining and oil & gas industry. This is owing to ease of installation, high clamping force, and availability in a wide range of sizes and materials. The externally threaded fasteners are majorly preferred because they can be easily installed and removed using simple tools, which makes them a popular choice for a wide range of products. Also, it provides a high clamping force when tightened, which is important in products where a secure, tight join is necessary.

Externally threaded fasteners include bolts, screws, studs, tie rods, and pins. The types of fasteners used in the mining industry include bolts such as eye, anchor, and structural. Types of rods include rock, elevator, sag, and tie. Materials used in the manufacturing of externally threaded fasteners for mining and oil & gas include carbon steel, titanium, stainless steel alloy steels, and construction steel.

Inserts and nuts are the most common internally threaded fasteners. Nuts dominate the segment of internally threaded fasteners. The oil & gas and mining industries play a vital role in global and regional economic growth. Geoscience and innovation remain important focuses for the mineral exploration and mining industry. Increasing investments from multinational players and favorable government policies for mine explorations and development is expected to drive the growth of mining, bolstering growth for the fasteners market.

Material Insights

The metal segment accounted for the highest revenue share of 98.0% in the material segment of the mining and oil & gas industry. Metal fasteners are known for their strength and durability, which makes them ideal for use in mining sites and oil & gas fields. They can withstand heavy loads and are resistant to wear and tear. Moreover, metal fasteners are largely available and can be purchased from a variety of suppliers. This makes it easy to obtain the right fasteners for a specific mining or oil & gas project.

Metal fasteners made from stainless steel, carbon steel, copper, aluminum, alloy steel, nickel, and titanium are used in the mining industry. These fasteners come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and diameters. Stainless steel has around 10% chromium which enables the formation of a thin coating of chromium oxide on the material's outer surface. This successfully prevents any corrosion that occurs due to oxidation or other chemical processes. Stainless steel is also resistant to internal and external hydrogen embrittlement, making it the most popular material for fastener manufacturing.

Global Mining And Oil & Gas Fasteners Market share and size, 2022

However, the growth of plastic fasteners is higher than metal fasteners. Plastic fasteners are much lighter than their metal counterparts, which can be beneficial in mining and oil & gas applications where weight is a concern. In addition, plastic fasteners are highly resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for use in harsh environments where metal fasteners may corrode and fail. Thus, the demand for plastic fasteners is rising.

Plastic is a nonconductor and therefore, ideal for heat-sensitive, electronic, or electrical applications. Fasteners are used in crushing machines, quarry and opencast equipment, conveyor equipment, and drilling equipment, and screeners. Resistance to vibrations and corrosion is a critical requirement for fasteners in mining and excavation industries, which is demonstrated exceptionally well in plastic fasteners.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the mining and oil & gas fasteners market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.7% in 2022. Rapid industrialization in developing economies of Asia Pacific coupled with rising investments in oil & gas and mining projects is expected to contribute to the overall growth of the mining and oil & gas fasteners market in the region.

According to the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers, the region's upstream oil & gas industry is battling to recover from its downturn and is currently rebounding. From a demand standpoint, energy demand in the Asia Pacific is expected to remain constant and is expected to see new investments as a result of economic expansion in emerging nations in the region and OECD countries.

Furthermore, exploration companies are currently keeping track of oil & gas price patterns and exploration expenditures. In addition, Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia governments are framing supportive policies to promote investments in the extraction of natural resources, including crude oil and natural gas. Thus, driving the demand of market of fasteners

The energy scenario in North America is changing significantly owing to the increasing number of oil & gas exploration activities in the U.S. and Canada that have led to the establishment of new oil & gas plants in the region. The increase in the usage of tight oil and unconventional natural gas resources presents the potential to boost global economic growth and increase its competitiveness.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The global mining and oil & gas fasteners market is a highly competitive market owing to the presence of a considerable number of manufacturers. Although fasteners comprise a very small percentage of the overall cost incurred in the mining and oil & gas industry, their prices play a major role in estimating the replacement cost and replacement period as they are consumed in bulk quantities.
