Tube China: Downstream Demand Increases Steadily

Tube China, Asia's leading pipe and tube industry fair, will bring together the industry's pioneers.

Tube China: Downstream Demand Increases Steadily

After 20 years, Tube China has become not only Asia's leading pipe and tube industry exhibition but also a pioneer in the industry. Organizers Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and MC-CCPIT will leverage their respective advantages to promote technological innovation, green and smart transformation, focus on the trending topics of the industry, and provide a brand new upgraded trading platform to deliver the latest products, technologies and solutions.

In the January-June 2023 period, China's steel pipe production increased by 12.2% on an annual basis, reaching 48.67 million tons. This figure includes 31.32 million tonnes of welded steel pipes, up 11.4% year on year, and 17.35 million tons of seamless steel pipes, up 13.8% year on year.

While there has been various growth in recent years in major sub-sectors such as natural gas, crude oil, crude oil processing, pipeline construction, shale gas, electricity, real estate, coal, coal bed methane gas and machinery manufacturing, automobile production was the only exception that experienced a slight decline. This growth will bring positive developments to the steel pipe industry and will ensure the stable operation of the steel pipe industry after 2023.

Smart Production

In 2022, the output value of China's smart manufacturing exceeded RMB 3 trillion. The market size of China's smart manufacturing will exceed 5.5 trillion RMB by 2025.

The number of refineries with a capacity of 10 million tons increased to 33 in China. The total refining capacity of Sinopec, PetroChina and CNOOC reached approximately 586 million tons per year.

Pipeline Network Construction

In 2022, the total length of China's oil and gas pipelines reached 155,000 kilometers. The strength of China's oil pipeline construction is approaching the highest in the world.


In 2022, the market size of China's prefabricated construction industry reached 1.3985 trillion RMB. The industry is expected to reach RMB 1.6 trillion by 2025.

Coal Industry

In the first half of 2023, China's raw coal production reached 2.3 billion tons, an increase of 4.4% compared to the previous year. Coal will remain indispensable for China's development.

Automotive Industry

Automotive precision steel tubes have extremely specific technical requirements. Automotive precision steel tubes account for approximately 3% of the production and sales of the entire steel tube industry.


Tube China 2024 is expected to gather 46,000 professional buyers (including concurrent event Wire China).
