Large Diameter Pipe

As Quoted In Public Works

Growth will benefit from the repair and replacement of wastewater infrastructure, as many state and municipal pipe projects that were put on hold during the 2006-2011 period move forward.

US demand to rise 6.2% annually through 2016

US 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 that 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.

Concrete, HDPE pipe to be fastest growing types

Steel and high density polyethylene (HDPE) were the two leading large diameter pipe materials in 2011, each accounting for 31 percent of total demand. Opportunities in the oil and gas industry will spur growth for steel through 2016, as it is the preferred material in both line pipe and oil country tubular goods (OCTG) applications. HDPE will post above average gains as it continues to replace other materials in many applications. For example, corrugated HDPE will continue to replace concrete pipe in many drainage applications, benefiting from its ease of installation and light weight.

Concrete will post the most rapid growth through 2016, as the material continues to benefit from its established position in most water markets and its unmatched performance advantages in the largest diameter uses.

Sewers to stay top market, drainage to grow fastest

Sewers, which include both storm and sanitary sewers, will continue to be the leading market for large diameter pipe through 2016, accounting for one half of total demand. Gains in large diameter storm sewer pipe will come in large part from the US population migrating toward the South and West regions of the country. Additionally, EPA mandates will provide opportunities for growth, as regulations regarding combined sewer overflows have become more stringent. As a result, many locales will be required to replace combined storm/sanitary sewer systems. The drainage market will experience the most robust growth in large diameter pipe demand through the forecast period, benefiting significantly from a rebound in building construction.

By 2016, oil and gas will be the only major market for large diameter pipe that will have a significantly higher level of demand than 2006 levels. Advances will arise primarily from line pipe applications for shale plays and other unconventional wells. Because the infrastructure surrounding shale wells has not been fully developed, many plays utilize trucks to transport material. Pipelines, which provide a continuous flow of product, are a significantly cheaper option.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 146 million foot US large diameter pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, with forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market (e.g., sewer, drainage, oil and gas, water transmission, industrial processing, irrigation) and material (e.g., steel pipe, high density polyethylene, concrete pipe, polyvinyl chloride, ductile iron, fiberglass).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including Advanced Drainage Systems, Rinker Materials, and US Steel.
