Pipe

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

  • steel
  • plastic
  • copper
  • concrete
  • ductile iron
  • aluminum
  • clay
  • other nonferrous metals (e.g., titanium, nickel)

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 types of plastic pipe:

  • PVC
  • HDPE
  • PEX
  • fiberglass
  • CPVC
  • ABS
  • other resins, including polypropylene, polyamide, and LDPE

Also included are breakouts for eight markets:

  • oil and natural gas
    • oil and gas drilling
    • oil and gas transmission
    • natural gas distribution
  • potable water
    • water transmission
    • water distribution
    • service and rural water
  • storm and sanitary sewer
  • conduit
  • industrial processing
  • drain, waste, and vent
  • irrigation
  • structural and mechanical
    • refrigeration equipment and appliances
    • motor vehicles
    • other structural and mechanical (e.g., aerospace equipment, solar panels)

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.
