OCTG Heat Treatment, Threading, Coupling and Premium Connection Sectors: A Strategic Market Outlook out to 2022

2015 and early 2016 have proved to be the most tumultuous period for the OCTG markets since we have been tracking these markets. Demand plummeted rapidly in leading markets like North America as oil prices collapsed from well over $100/barrel to $30/barrel in early 2016. Nonetheless, other OCTG markets in the world such as the Middle East and Russia are seeing much greater stability.

How do you best position yourself to benefit from the industry when the upturn comes?
