Water & Wastewater Pipe

As Quoted In WaterWorld

Growth in water and wastewater pipe demand will benefit from an improved housing outlook and the continued need to upgrade and repair the aging US sewer and water pipe network.

US demand to approach $18 billion in 2016

US demand for water and wastewater pipe is expected to rise 8.2 percent per year to $17.8 billion in 2016. Gains will rebound strongly from declines experienced during the 2006-2011 period, during which pipe markets were negatively impacted by the 2007-2009 recession. Going forward, rising demand will be fueled by a more favorable environment for public infrastructure spending, as state and municipal governments faced severe budgetary constraints in 2011, which caused many major projects to be delayed. Other factors benefiting pipe demand through 2016 will include healthy increases in building construction spending and the continued need to upgrade and repair the country’s aging sewer and water pipe network.

Recovery expected in municipal, housing markets

near term, recovery is expected in the housing market by 2016. This will fuel construction spending, benefiting pipe demand as a matter of course. Also boosting water pipe demand will be a rebound in the size and number of bathrooms per new housing unit to levels common in the middle of the last decade. During the 2007-2011 downturn in housing construction, many builders installed fewer and smaller bathrooms in the new houses that were completed, further restraining pipe demand.

Demand for pipe in the municipal market will rebound due to improved government spending on infrastructure projects. As the economy recovers, water utility suppliers will have additional revenue to invest in pipe replacement. Despite this improvement, the nation’s water infrastructure is expected to remain in disrepair. Legislators and pipe industry participants hope to increase private investment in public water infrastructure via legislation that would lift limits on taxexempt funding for water projects.

Plastic to grow fastest among pipe materials

Plastic will be the fastest-growing pipe material through 2016, continuing to take market share from competing materials in a range of markets. Rising demand for plastic pipe will be driven by resin improvements that enhance pipe performance in more demanding environments, while processing improvements will allow plastic pipe to be more cost-effective compared to other materials.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) will remain the top resin used in plastic pipe through 2016, due to its dominant position in small-diameter applications such as potable water distribution, sanitary sewer and agricultural markets. While PVC pipe demand declined during the 2006-2011 period, the expected recovery in building construction activity will fuel gains through 2016. High density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, however, has the best long-term growth prospects among major plastic pipe resins. HDPE will continue to gain ground on concrete, steel, PVC and other competing pipe materials.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $11.9 billion US water and wastewater pipe industry, with forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by market (e.g., municipal, building construction), application (e.g., sewer and drain, potable water, irrigation) and product (e.g., plastic, concrete, ductile iron, steel, copper).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 45 industry players, including JM Eagle, Advanced Drainage Systems and Hanson Pipe & Precast.
