Europe Sales Analysis of Ductile Iron Pipes (2017-2021) Vs Market Outlook (2022-2032)

Ductile iron pipes are made of ductile cast iron and are mainly used for potable water transmission and distribution. Owing to their strength, durability, and reliability for transporting sewage, slurry, potable water, etc., they are ideal for application in high-pressure conditions. Good corrosion resistance and mechanical properties of ductile iron pipes allow them to withstand severe operating conditions.

These pipes are damage-resistant during handling and shipping, and once they are installed, they can withstand the most demanding operating conditions, such as frozen ground, water hammers, rocky trenches, areas with high water tables, etc.

With up to 90% recycled content and these pipes being 100% recyclable, they are a smart and sustainable solution to deliver clean drinkable water.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Developing underground infrastructure in Europe to deliver necessities to the population to fuel short-term market growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Rising awareness of the supply of clean and safe drinking water setting a new trend. Improvements in wastewater management solutions in Europe to drive medium-term demand.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Product innovation along with a customized offering of ductile iron pipes by manufacturers to fuel market growth in the long term.

The European market for ductile iron pipes witnessed 2.1% CAGR during the 2017-2021 period. As per in-depth analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.4% over the forecast years 2022-2032.

Market share analysis based on diameter and country is provided in a nutshell. Under the diameter segment, DN350-DN1000 ductile iron pipes dominated the market with 27.6% share in 2021.

What Market Factors Do Ductile Iron Pipe Manufacturers in Europe Need to Keep in Mind?

“Rising Need for Customized Production of Ductile Iron Pipes”

Enhanced application of ductile iron pipes is being witnessed in several end-use industries in tandem with the development of infrastructure. Manufacturers are offering customized ductile iron pipes as per the requirements of their customers. This customization in the manufacturing process is anticipated to attract more customers, allowing the sales of ductile iron pipes to rise in the near future.

Manufacturers are also introducing ductile spools and coatings, fitting modifications, customized stainless spools, value chamber accessories, etc., for water work applications and tapping fittings for custom machinery.

Customized production by market players is expected to support ductile iron pipes market growth in Europe over the coming years.

“Increasing Underground Infrastructural Development across Europe”

Rising infrastructural development projects in Europe on the back of the growing number of smart cities are leading to augmented ductile iron pipe demand. Moreover, rising pressure to advance sanitation in urban areas and economic progress are inducing governments to undertake water and wastewater management projects on a larger scale.

In addition to the above factors, high awareness about the supply of clean and safe drinking water is a trend that will offer growth opportunities to market players. Rising technological advancements, improving solutions for wastewater management, and stringent regulations for agricultural irrigation & wastewater management are expected to offer lucrative market openings for the manufacturing of ductile iron pipes.

Governments across Europe are spending on water treatment to strengthen the procurement of ductile iron pipe fittings, which will provide lucrative revenue streams for ductile iron pipe suppliers.
