A Material Shift in the U.S. Pipe Market: Changing Product & Vendor Landscape for Water Infrastructure

11 March 2020
Market Insight

The 2.2 million miles of drinking water pipe and 1.8 million miles of wastewater pipe installed across the U.S. vary in material type depending largely on when and where the pipe was installed. As new materials replace older ones in popularity due to factors like durability and cost, the material makeup of underground infrastructure slowly shifts.

Installations of pipe are the result of new construction (mainly suburban and exurban), pipe repair, or pipe replacement. With current annual replacement rates of less than 1%, the makeup of installed water and wastewater underground infrastructure does not readily reflect the shift in material preferences that is evident when examining the types of pipes being installed year-over-year
