  • Table of Contents

Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) is one of the trenchless (or no-dig) rehabilitation processes used to repair pipelines. It is a non-invasive, jointless, seamless, pipe-within-a-pipe, which is used for the rehabilitation of sewer pipes, industrial gas pipes, potable water pipes, and gravity pipes. It can be performed inside a pipe with a diameter range of 6" to 120". This trenchless pipe rehabilitation method causes minimal disruption to traffic, work productivity, and people at home. It is installed by municipalities or utilities by accessing piping systems from city manholes. CIPP liners manufacturing has to be compliant with various standards, regulated by ASTM and has to follow the emission norms of different regulatory bodies such as OSHA regulation.

The CIPP technology was invented by Insituform Technologies, Inc. in 1971 with the first project in London, the UK. Since then, the market has been witnessing an incessant growth in its penetration across the world. There is already high penetration of the CIPP technology in developed economies, especially the USA, Germany, and Japan. Currently, the penetration of CIPP technology is limited in developing economies, such as China and India; however, this study reveals that the adoption rate is briskly increasing in these markets in the wake of aging pipelines coupled with increased spending on infrastructure rehabilitation.

There are various trenchless technologies used for pipe rehabilitation such as CIPP, SIPP, pipe bursting, and slip lining. Among all, CIPP is the most widely used technology and alone accounts for more than 40% of the trenchless pipe rehabilitation market. The global CIPP market grew at a healthy rate over the past five years, and it also witnessed a marginal drop in its growth trajectory amid the pandemic in 2020. The resulting market loss is estimated to be aptly compensated by a swift growth in the sale of CIPP during 2020-2021 and beyond, filling all the voids generated due to the pandemic.

The major factors that are continuously fuelling the growth of the CIPP market are as follows:

  • Aging potable and sewage water structure
  • Increasing spending by municipalities on utilities and pipeline-rehabilitation
  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of trenchless methods
  • High performance of CIPP over competing technologies

Consequently, the overall cured-in-place pipe market is estimated to grow at a decent CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period, to reach a value of US$ 3.1 Billion in 2027.

Segments' Analysis

Stratview Research has firstly segmented the CIPP market based on the diameter type as <1 Foot, 1-2.5 Feet, 2.5-5.0 Feet, and >5.0 Feet. Among these, the <1-foot diameter pipe is likely to remain the dominant segment during the forecast period. The large demand for CIPP in the <1-foot diameter pipe is mainly attributed to the large installed base for sewer and potable water applications across regions. 8" diameter pipe is a standard size and has been one of the largest used pipelines across the world.

Based on the resin type, the market is classified as polyester resin, vinyl ester resin, and epoxy resin. Our analysis suggests that polyester resin-based CIPP is expected to remain the dominant resin segment, whereas epoxy resin-based CIPP is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the foreseen future. Polyester resins are predominantly used in sewer and stormwater pipe rehabilitation, owing to their high flexural modulus, low tensile elongation, and good chemical resistance. Further, lower costs as compared to vinyl ester and epoxy resins elevate its demand. Epoxy resin does not have HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) or cause fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds) emissions and is one of the eco-friendliest choices for CIPP. Epoxy resin-based CIPP is mostly used for the rehabilitation of potable water pipelines as it's the only resin that meets the NSF/ANSI 61 potable water requirements.

Based on the fabric type, the market is segmented into polyester fabric, glass fabric, and other fabrics. Polyester is likely to remain the most dominant fabric type, whereas glass fabric is expected to be the fastest-growing fabric type in the market during the forecast period. Polyester fabric exceeds the desired tensile strength and meets the ASTM D461 standard at a very competitive price compared to other fabrics. It is considered a superior fabric for optimum resin carriage coupled with high surface tension. Glass fabric is the preferred choice for CIPP where curing is done through UV. The main reason for using glass fabric liner with UV curing, instead of water or steam-cured felt liners, is that felt curing generates by-products that negatively affect the environment.

Based on the curing type, the market is segmented into hot water curing, steam curing, and UV curing. Out of these three types, steam curing continues to rule the market, owing to its less curing time and stronger finished products. The overall curing time of the steam process is lower than that of the hot water curing time as the transfer of heat in the steam process is faster as compared to hot water. Set up of a steam cure system is also quicker than a hot water cure system, and it does not require large-scale water on the job site as in the case of hot water curing. UV curing is expected to remain the fastest-growing market segment during the forecast period. UV liners do not need refrigeration; hence, they can be delivered directly to the job site in advance. They are 3 to 5 times stronger than conventional felt CIPP liners, contribute towards reducing emissions and are not temperature sensitive.

Based on the coating type, the market is classified as polypropylene (PP)-coated CIPP, polyethylene (PE) -coated CIPP, polyurethane (PU) -coated CIPP, non-coated CIPP, and other coatings CIPP. Among these coating types, PP-coated CIPP is likely to remain the most dominant segment of the market, owing to its excellent elasticity, ease of handling, an attractive price-to-performance ratio, thickness as compared to the conventional coatings, firm bonding with the felt, and resistance to hydrolysis and chemical attack.

In terms of region, North America is projected to remain the largest market for CIPP during the forecast period. The USA is the largest market for CIPP in North America as well as in the world. Most of the pipeline construction in the region was done post-world war and requires rehabilitation with CIPP, the most suitable method for pipe rehabilitation. Similarly, the Asia-Pacific region, which has a low penetration of trenchless technology presently, is likely to witness the fastest growth in the coming years, as the market is rapidly gaining momentum in the region.

Key Players

The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, tube manufacturers, CIPP liner manufacturers, installation contractors, municipalities, and utility owners. Developing thinner, stronger, and eco-friendly liners, executing mergers & acquisitions, and formation of contracts with installers and utilities are the key strategies adopted by the key players to gain a competitive edge in the market. Also, there have been some major mergers and acquisitions in the industry in recent years, which has had a substantial impact on the entire competitive landscape. For example:

  • In March 2022, Inland Pipe Rehabilitation (IPR) completed the acquisition of the pipe rehabilitation solution provider, Inliner, from Granite Construction Inc.
  • In May 2021, New Mountain Capital, a New York-based private equity investment firm, completely acquired the shares of Aegion Corporation.
  • In April 2019, Waterline Renewal Technologies (parent company of Perma-Liner Industries, LLC) was acquired by Behrman Capital, a private equity investment firm based in the United States.

The overall market dynamics have been influenced as a result of these mergers and acquisitions. Some of the major players in the CIPP market are as follows:

  • Aegion Corporation
  • Granite Construction Inc.
  • Per Aarsleff A/S
