Seamless stainless steel pipes: Where to buy them in the future?
Our modern industries, but also the coming technologies of the future, need seamless stainless steel pipes and tubes. Energy production from natural gas and oil, but also the production and transport of (green) hydrogen (H2) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) need the high-quality and pressure-resistant pipes to withstand the extreme temperatures.
Where else can seamless stainless steel pipes be used?
Seamless stainless steel tubes can withstand high temperatures and maintain the purity of materials that come into direct contact with stainless steel. Stainless steel tubes and pipes are used in chemical plants, aviation, marine equipment, cryogenic transport, medicine and architecture.

- Aviation fields
- Marine equipment
- Cryogenic transportation
- Medical & architectural industries
- Energy, oil, gas, LNG, hydrogen
Demand for seamless stainless steel tubes expected to increase sharply
In view of the rapidly advancing shift towards renewable energies in the course of the green transformation, geopolitical uncertainties and a complete reorientation of European and North American energy policy, the demand for seamless stainless steel tubes and pipes is growing immensely.
Hydrogen infrastructure not yet in place and under construction
According to calculations by the European Commission (EC), the EU steel industry alone will probably need 12.5 million tonnes of green hydrogen per year in the coming years in order to meet the requirements for CO2-neutral production.
Billions of euros of investment in LNG terminals
A reorientation in global energy policy due to geopolitical uncertainties has led large countries that currently do not have an LNG infrastructure to start building them in a very short time.
If you just look in the direction of Germany, for example, two large LNG terminals are already being planned. And that will only be the beginning there, after a break with the previous natural gas supplier, Russia, has occurred in the foreseeable future.
Western countries must reduce dependence on China
The United States and the European Union have already declared their aim to become less dependent on China for certain products. Recent years have shown that supply chains must be diversified in order to be able to react flexibly in times of crisis and to guarantee security of supply.
Anti-dumping, Safeguard, Section 232
Not only the declared political will of the European Union and the United States to reduce their dependence on China, but also more and more market protection measures against imports of seamless stainless steel pipes and tubes from China have shown in recent years that alternatives must be found for these large economic areas.
Because Section 232 tariffs and EU Safeguard measures will continue to be market companions. In addition, there are very high anti-dumping duties of more than 70% against imports of seamless stainless steel tubes from China.
