Pipe: Products & Markets

In what applications will improved processing techniques and resin formulations boost plastic pipe’s competitiveness?

This study analyzes the US pipe market. Historical data (2007, 2012, and 2017) and forecasts for 2022 and 2027 are provided for eight competitive pipe materials:

  • steel
  • plastic
  • copper
  • concrete
  • ductile iron
  • aluminum
  • clay
  • other nonferrous metals

Data are also provided for six types of plastic pipe:

  • PVC
  • HDPE
  • PEX
  • fiberglass
  • CPVC
  • ABS

Also included are breakouts for eight markets:

  • oil and natural gas
  • potable water
  • storm and sanitary sewer
  • conduit
  • industrial processing
  • drain, waste, and vent
  • irrigation
  • structural and mechanical

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.
