A new report has been published by Stratview Research, titled, “Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market” The experts authoring this report have made an effort at providing in-depth information on leading growth drivers, restrictions, challenges, current and upcoming trends, and opportunities to offer a comprehensive assessment of the global Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market. Users can use the analysis included in this report to plan effective growth strategies and prepare for future challenges beforehand.

Market segmentation

Market segmentation has been done correctly to help the users define and better understand their target audiences and ideal customers. Market segmentation in this report allows you to identify the right market for your products and then target your marketing more effectively.

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market Share by Pipe Diameter Type

Stratview 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. <1-foot diameter pipe is likely to remain the dominant segment by 2026. The large demand for CIPP in the <!-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.

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market Share by Type of Resins

Our analysis based on the market segment of the resin type 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 post-pandemic market developments. Polyester resins are predominantly used in sewer and stormwater pipe rehabilitation, owing to its high flexural modulus, low tensile elongation, and good chemical resistance. Further, its lower cost as compared to vinyl ester and epoxy resins elevate its demand. Epoxy resin does not have HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) or cause less 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.

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market Share by Fabric Type

Based on the fabric type, the market is classified as polyester, glass, and others. Polyester felt-based CIPP is likely to remain the most dominant fabric type, whereas glass fabric-based CIPP 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.

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market by Curing Type

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 required in case of hot water curing.

UV is expected to remain the fastest-growing curing method 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.

Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market by Coating Type

Based on the coating type, the market is classified as Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE), Polyurethane (PU), Non-Coated, and Other Coatings. 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, thicker than the conventional coatings, firm bonding with the felt, and resistant to hydrolysis and chemical attack.

Regional Insights

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 is in need of rehabilitation with CIPP is the most suitable method for pipe rehabilitation. Asia-Pacific is likely to be the fastest-growing region. The region currently has a low penetration of trenchless technology, but it is rapidly gaining momentum.
