Demand for Ductile Iron Pipes to Soar on Back of Affirmative Government Posture towards Water and Waste Water Management

Governments across the globe are taking measures to meet the growing demand for water. Rapid urbanization in emerging economies has significantly fueled the demand for infrastructure services such as roads, transportation, electric and power supply, water supply, and sanitation. Further, due to a rise in migration rate of the population towards urban centers, the demand for ductile iron pipes for waste water treatment has also increased. Unsafe sanitation is one of the major concerns for governments across the globe and it is becoming more serious as the global population is increasing. Almost 4.5 billion people, i.e. more than half of the global population, still practice open defecation or use unsafe sanitary facilities and services. Governments across the world are undertaking measure for water sanitation. On the back of easy installation with added advantage of recyclability, ductile iron pipes market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period (2020-2030).

DN 700 – DN 1000 Ductile Iron Pipes to Remain Highly Preferred

DN 700 – DN 1000 pipes are extensively used for sewerage pipes. These pipes have high alumina cement mortar lining that allows them to withstand operating conditions ranging from highly alkaline to highly acidic. These pipes are also used to distribute drinking water from dams to urban areas. Inner coatings are essential for these pipes, as they are highly susceptible to corrosion. These pipes are also used in mining applications. With increasing usage of DI pipes for portable water distribution, this segment is expected to account for more than one-fourth of global market share by 2030.

Furthermore, Earthquake Resistance Ductile Iron Pipe (ERDIP) pipes are known to absorb ground displacement with its high strength and resistivity against earthquakes. Key players are focusing on capacity expansion to meet increasing demand in earthquake prone areas. For instance, Kubota Corp. has increased their production capacity after areas in Japan have experienced landslides. These pipes help in protecting water supplying service even under critical conditions with low operating cost. U.S. Pipe, one of the main makers from United States offers wide assortment of seismic items, which incorporate seismic fittings, seismic gathering and earthquake safe ductile iron pipes.

Portable Water Distribution Segment to Experience Higher Growth Rate in terms of Application

Drinking water distribution is the major application of ductile iron pipes market. Portable water losses occur due to supply system failures. Ductile iron pipes are reliable, durable, and cost-effective pipes that help in transporting portable water and industrial and household Wastewater. These pipes are preferred over other materials as they have a lower failure rate.  Usage of portable water distribution segment is expected to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 2.6 Bn over the forecast period.

Asian to Remain in Vanguard in Global Ductile Iron Pipes Market

 East Asia alongside South Asia and Oceania represent about half of the ductile iron pipes market as far as volume is concerned. Presence of majority of key players, high agricultural output, government initiatives towards water & waste water management are some of the prominent factors providing a boost to the Asian ductile Iron pipes market. Furthermore, ever increasing population estimates in Asian countries, increasing grey iron & cast iron production, rapid urbanization & industrialization coupled with focus towards changing the aging water infrastructure are the factors waving towards higher adoption of ductile iron pipes in the region till 2030.

The Global Ductile Iron Pipe Market is Fragmented with the presence numerous manufacturers across the globe. Chinese Players account for around 65% share in the overall ductile iron pipe market. In order to meet this exceeding demand, key players are focusing on capacity expansion along and increasing their product portfolio to gain a competitive advantage. For example, in February 2018, U.S. Pipe launched HDSS®, a new range of restrained-joint ductile iron pipes which provides higher deflection than restrained-joint pipes launched previously.

 Covid-19 is impacting demand for DI pipes, as result of halted water sewage construction and ceased production activity. Key market regions for DI pipes such as East Asia, North America and South Asia are under nation-wide lockdown to prevent spread of this virus. With a number of government projects for water treatment and water supply management being put on hold, demand for DI pipes is plummeting across the globe.  As an aftereffect of this outbreaks, DI pipes market is expected to lose market share in global pipes market.
