Quote from article
United States demand for large diameter pipe is projected to rise 6.2 percent annually through 2016 to 197 million feet. Growth will benefit from the repair and replacement of wastewater infrastructure, as many pipe projects, which were put on hold during the 2006-2011 period due to state and municipal budget concerns, move forward. Additionally, the need to expand oil and gas transmission lines, especially near shale plays and other unconventional wells, will spur growth. Furthermore, improvement in manufacturing activity will boost pipe demand in processing applications. These and other trends are presented in Large Diameter Pipe, a new study from The Freedonia Group Inc., a Cleveland-based industry market research firm.

Quote from article
Increased infrastructure spending will boost demand in the U.S. for large-diameter pipe for water and wastewater through 2016, according to the latest reports from The Freedonia Group. U.S. demand for water and wastewater pipe is expected to rise 9.2% per year to $17.8 billion in 2016, with plastic being the fastest-growing pipe material as it continues to take market share from competing materials.

Quote from article
he first report predicts that water and wastewater pipe demand will go up at an annual rate of about 9.2 percent, to reach a total of $17.8 billion in 2016. Plastics are expected to register the fastest growth in terms of material, whereas other materials are likely to lose some market share, The Freedonia Group found. Sewers will still be the leading market for large-diameter pipe over the next few years, accounting for half of the total U.S. demand.

Article Title: U.S. Large-Diameter Pipe Market to Reach $8.2 Bil. in 2015

Freedonia Study: Large Diameter Pipe (2974)

Quote from article
U.S. demand for large diameter pipe -- defined as pipe with a diameter of 15 inches or more -- will rise 6.2 percent per year to $8.2 billion in 2015, according to a report by the Freedonia Group. Gains are expected to rebound strongly from the declining demand experienced during the 2005-2010 period, during which large-diameter pipe markets were negatively impacted by the 2007-2009 recession. Going forward, rising demand will be fueled by a more favorable environment for public infrastructure spending, as state and municipal governments faced severe budgetary constraints in 2010 that caused many major projects to be delayed.

Article Title: U.S. demand for pipe to exceed $50 Billion in 2016
By:
Publication: Public Works, 10/31/2012
Freedonia Study: Large Diameter Pipe (2974)

Quote from article
U.S. demand for pipe is expected to grow 6.2 percent per year to $50.1 billion in 2016, driven primarily by a rebound in building construction. An expansion of oil and gas exploration and transmission activity, especially the development of shale plays, will also boost gains. In addition, the continued need to replace and repair the country’s aging water pipe networks will also contribute to growth. In length terms, pipe demand is forecast to expand at an 8.3 percent annual rate through 2016 to nearly 11 billion feet, totaling almost 83 billion pounds. Gains will result primarily from a turnaround in building construction. These and other trends are presented in Plastic & Competitive Pipe, a new study from The Freedonia Group, Inc., a Cleveland-based industry market research firm.
