Electric heat tracing, heat tape or surface heating, is an energy proficient heat tracing system used to maintain, raise or enhance the temperature levels of pipes, floors, vessels and other infrastructural surfaces using heat tracing cables. The heating cables are attached to the product pipe or the equipment surface in order to trace the heat.
Trace heating may be used to protect pipes from freezing, to maintain a constant flow temperature in hot water systems, or to maintain process temperatures for piping that is to transport substances that can solidify at ambient temperatures. Electric trace heating cables are an alternative to steam trace heating where steam is unavailable or unwanted and can be deployed on sewer lines, water, and at precise locations which can suffer from freezing and in areas where the temperatures can drop significantly and can result in freezing of pipes, vessels and other components in an industry.
The global electric heat tracing market is expected to witness growth at a steady CAGR in the years to follow.
The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors including; the growing demand for energy-efficient electric heat tracing systems with low maintenance cost, the increasing adoption of electric heat tracing systems over conventional steam tracing systems, expanding compliance requirements in concerned industries, increasing demand for energy proficient self-regulating cables, substitution of steam heat tracing with electric heat tracing systems, rising demand for electric heat tracing systems from numerous industries and the expanding number of industrial and commercial piping systems globally etc.
Moreover, the increasing investments in developing oil/gas pipeline infrastructure coupled with rising environmental, health, and safety concerns for the oil pipeline infrastructure, the growing interest by organizations across various industries on operational improvements to enhance efficiency and continuous adoption of automated monitoring and control solutions worldwide are further expected to propel the growth of global Electric Heat Tracing market.
However, high costs required for installation of these systems due to their complicated designing, concerns relating to the devastating effects of the overlapping of heating cables, the requirement of continuous auditing to identify non-functioning/problematic heat trace and complexities in insulation are some of the factors that hinder this market from growing.
More importantly, this market is expected to decline in 2020 mainly due to the impact of COVID-19.As the oil & gas industry was severely impacted, players in this industry are focusing on reducing CAPEX, which would affect the electric heat tracing market on the negative side.
