U.S. Storm & Sanitary Sewer Pipe Market 2022-2026: Increasing Water and Sewer Construction, Boosted by Recent Federal Infrastructure Legislation, Drives Growth – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Added Storm & Sanitary Sewer Pipe Market 2022-2026 report ResearchAndMarkets.com Offer.

Through 2026, US demand for storm and sanitary sewer pipe is expected to grow 3.1% per year to $8.2 billion, or 707 million linear feet. While value growth is expected to decelerate slightly as average plastic and metal pipe prices ease from severely inflated levels in 2021, volume gains are expected to accelerate, driven by:

  • increasing hydraulic and sewer construction, promoted by recent federal infrastructure laws such as the Infrastructure Investment and Employment Act

  • increased expenses for the construction and repair of highways, which usually coincide with the installation or replacement of sewers and pipes

  • Building improvement and repair activities that will support drainage pipe profits, particularly in the commercial segment where drainage pipe is needed to prevent water accumulation in parking lots

  • A number of trends in building construction – such as increasing the number of bathrooms per building – will put pressure on existing sewer infrastructure and encourage replacement

Sharp increase in PVC and steel prices in 2021 leads to a record year in terms of value

In 2021, average prices for PVC and steel sewer pipes increased by 40% and 47%, respectively. The significant price increase was due to a number of factors, including:

  • sharp increases in commodity prices as US inflation hit its highest level in decades

  • significant problems and bottlenecks in the supply chain

These price increases resulted in a massive increase in value demand in 2021, fueled by increased housing construction, which further increased pipe demand in excess of available supply. However, demand for sewer pipe in linear foot units fell this year due to a pandemic-related decline in state and local government spending on infrastructure construction.

Plastic pipes are gaining market share in large diameter wastewater applications

Plastic pipes are dominated in storm and sewerage applications due to their light weight, ease of handling and corrosion resistance. In many cases, civil engineers and sewer professionals choose plastic pipe over traditional concrete or steel materials for repair and replacement projects because plastic products:

  • are less expensive in terms of material price and installation

  • are more suitable for trenchless installation and rehabilitation methods

While plastic has traditionally not been competitive at large diameters, improvements in resin formulation and processing will open up new markets at these sizes.
