Water & Wastewater Pipe

US water and wastewater pipe demand will rebound from the declines of the 2008-2013 period, in which pipe markets were negatively impacted by decreases in construction spending.

US demand to rise 7.7% annually through 2018

Water and wastewater pipe demand in the US will grow 7.7 percent per year to $18.1 billion in 2018. Gains will rebound from declines experienced during the 2008-2013 period, in which pipe markets were negatively impacted by decreases in construction spending. Strong increases in construction activity will fuel gains in the building construction market, whereas the continued need to upgrade and repair the country’s aging sewer and water pipe network will spur gains in the municipal market.

Increasing water, sewer fees to better fund repair and replacement projects

In the municipal market, the majority of pipe demand is attributable to the repair and replacement of a large existing infrastructure. Although there is a pressing need for spending on water infrastructure, repairs and replacement are often deferred until a defect manifests itself in the form of a burst pipe requiring immediate action. It is anticipated that water utilities will successfully increase end user water and sewer fees over the forecast period, enabling them to more easily fund repair and replacement projects. Nevertheless, despite this heightened investment, the nation’s water infrastructure is expected to remain in disrepair due to the advanced age of many current pipelines.

Housing recovery to drive building construction uses

In the building construction market, demand for water distribution and service pipe was severely constrained as new housing construction declined precipitously from 2006 through 2009, and nonresidential building activity contracted at double-digit rates in 2009 and 2010. A strong recovery will occur in the housing market, with the number of housing starts expected to post double-digit gains through 2018, spurring demand for water pipe, particularly distribution and service pipe. An increase in the number of bathrooms per new housing unit will also provide a boost to demand.

Metal pipe to lose market share to plastic materials

Among pipe materials, metal will lose market share to plastic, continuing a long term systemic trend. Demand for each type of metal pipe -- ductile iron, copper, and steel -- is forecast to be less in 2018 than it was in 2008, reflecting increased use of plastic pipe in both small and large diameter applications. High density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe will continue to gain ground on copper and other competing pipe materials. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) will remain the leading resin used in plastic pipe production due to its dominant position in large diameter applications such as water transmission and drain, waste, and vent.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the $12.5 billion US water and wastewater pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by market (e.g., municipal, building construction), application (e.g., sewer and drain pipe, potable water, irrigation pipe) and product (e.g., plastic pipe, ductile iron, concrete pipe, copper, steel pipe).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 47 industry players, including JM Eagle, Advanced Drainage Systems and American Cast Iron Pipe.
