Demand for plastic potable water pipe is projected to expand 2.6% per year to 13.1 billion meters in 2024. Gains will be fueled by increasing spending on water transmission and service infrastructure, particularly in low-income countries. While demand will decline in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, growth is expected to rebound considerably the following year and continue through 2024.

Transmission Pipe Sales to Benefit from Infrastructure Spending

Despite a slowdown in construction spending across the globe through 2024, the transmission of clean drinking water will remain a priority for national and local governments alike:

  • In higher income countries, this will mostly comprise the replacement of older iron or steel lines with plastic pipes. In addition, the larger diameters of these plastic pipes will support gains in value and weight terms.
  • In lower- and middle-income countries, transmission networks will continue to expand due to growing and urbanizing populations, some of which do not currently have access to potable water.

Material Substitution & Higher Incomes Support Growth in Distribution Pipe

A variety of factors will drive demand growth for plastic potable water distribution pipe through 2024, including:

  • plastic gaining share over competitive pipe materials such as copper
  • higher personal incomes, particularly in developing countries, leading many to access indoor plumbing for the first time
  • greater use of amenities such as radiant flooring in new homes

Polyethylene Pipe to Remain Most Used

Polyethylene pipe will remain the most widely used type for potable water applications through 2024. This is highly influenced by the use of PEX and PE-RT in water distribution, as these pipes are utilized for long lengths in small diameters. In addition, these more advanced variants of polyethylene have such performance properties as:

  • higher temperature resistance, making them ideally suited for hot water, both at taps and in radiant flooring
  • flexibility, making them easier to install than other plastics such as PVC
  • resistance to scaling and damage from biocides in water

In transmission and service and rural lines, PVC will remain the dominant material due to its impact resistance and durability.
