  • List of Tables

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $51.9 billion US pipe industry. It presents historical demand data (2011, 2016, and 2021) and forecasts (2026 and 2031) by product (steel, plastic, copper, concrete, ductile iron, aluminum, clay, other nonferrous metals) and market (structural and mechanical, potable water, oil and natural gas, storm and sanitary sewer, conduit, industrial processing, drain, waste, and vent, and irrigation). The study evaluates company market share and competitive analysis on industry competitors including JM Eagle, Zekelman Industries, Tenaris, Mueller Industries, US Steel, and Atkore International Group.

Study Highlights include:

  • a rebound in oil and gas drilling activity will boost gains
  • increasing water and sewer construction will fuel growth
  • healthy growth in transportation equipment manufacturing to bolster advances
  • rising production of air conditioners and refrigerators, particularly larger and higher end models that require more tubing will increase market growth
