Rising Investments in Earthquake-resistant Piping to Support U.S. Ductile Iron Pipes Market Growth, States Fact.MR

·8 min read

“West U.S. and South-West U.S. to remain hotspots for the demand for ductile iron pipes owing to far-reaching emphasis on reducing damages caused to underground fittings by environmental disasters,” says a Fact.MR analyst.

United States, Rockville MD, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The ductile iron pipes market in the United States is estimated at US$ 1.21 billion in 2022, and is expected to reach US$ 1.88 billion by the end of 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast years of 2022-2032. The market is likely to expand because of rising opportunities in earthquake-resistant piping systems, as per in-depth industry analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider.

Governments and market players are investing heavily on ERDIP or earthquake-resistant ductile iron piping solutions that have the ability to withstand tremors. Earthquake-resistant pipes have a flexible mechanism that provides a certain amount of clearance in the joint of the pipes, allowing them to extend, deflect, and contract; it does not pull out if the pipe moves beyond the joint’s range of motion.

In addition, these pipes are able to absorb large ground dislocation such as cracks or ground subsidence by joint contraction, deflection, and anti-pull out structure. In the event of an earthquake, if one joint fully extends, it can pull other pipes like a buried chain. As such, it is also called a chain structure pipeline.

Development of Market

Key ductile iron pipe manufacturers in the United States are focusing on acquisitions to overtake other competitors in the market. They are incorporating ductile iron pipes that are resistant to fire and other seismic movements, providing reliable drinking water supply and other services without the fear of chemical leakage from plastics.

Ductile iron is able to withstand the most severe operating conditions and environmental impact as it is formed by treating magnesium with molten low-sulphur base iron under closely controlled conditions. It can withstand extremely high and low temperatures without any effect on its brittleness as opposed to the alternative materials such as plastics that are heavily influenced by temperatures.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Development of underground infrastructure to support short term market growth.

  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Need to prevent the damaging impacts of disasters such as earthquakes, tornados, cyclones, etc., on the underground distribution of life necessities such as water and gas supply, to drive medium-term market growth.

  • Long Term (2028-2032): Product innovation in ductile iron pipes to fuel long-term demand.

Thus, all these factors are poised to provide the necessary uplift to the growth of ductile iron pipes market in the United States over the coming years.
