This study analyzes the US drain, waste, and vent pipe industry. Historical data (2009, 2014, and 2019) and forecasts for the years 2024 and 2029 are provided for three competitive pipe materials:

  • plastic
  • ductile iron
  • copper

How will the COVID-19 coronavirus impact the global economy? The Freedonia Group is tracking recent developments and analyzing their impact in an easy to follow Economic Impact Tracker.

Data are also provided for two types of plastic pipe:

  • polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
  • acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS)

All demand data reflect apparent consumption (production plus imports minus exports) and are given in dollars, pounds, and linear feet.

Although distinctions are sometimes made between pipes and tubes, for the purposes of this study the terms “pipe”, “tube”, and “tubular products” are used interchangeably. Fittings are excluded from the scope of the study.
