The article reports on the varying degrees of optimism of North American producers and distributors of steel pipe and tube display for 2006. Companies selling oil country tubular goods expect strong demand to continue into 2007. On the other hand, companies selling standard pipe products are bracing for more competition from imports. Also, the outlook for structural tubing is much brighter caused by the improved commercial and office construction activity.
