Introduction: -

Ductile iron pipes are enhanced versions of cast iron pipes that are widely used for physically transporting and discharging water and wastewater for drinking, irrigation, and various other purposes. These pipes are strong, durable, efficient, and reliable and offer enhanced fracture, extreme temperature, and damage resistance during installation, handling, and shipping. These pipes have an average life span of more than 100 years and find applications in various end-use industries for several purposes. Most commonly, they are utilized for sewage and wastewater, potable water distribution, irrigation, mining, etc. The global ductile iron pipe market includes players engaged in developing and launching various ductile iron pipe and related products. The ductile iron pipe market is expected to register growth at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2021-2030.

Growth Drivers:

Due to the rising global population, the demand for clean drinking water is upsurging at an unprecedented rate around the world. Moreover, major countries across the globe are witnessing a massive water crisis in their areas, adversely affecting communities and individual households. Also, a colossal number of water infrastructure systems across the globe require immediate replacement for their proper and efficient functioning. In view of this, governments of different regions are undertaking major steps to address the various global challenges related to water. They are investing huge funds in water infrastructure, wastewater treatment, and water sanitation. For instance, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced the availability of more than USD 95.0 Million of funds to assist the State of Michigan with its water problems. Ductile iron pipes are mainly used for the discharge of wastewater and water supply management. Thus, the rising global water stress and the increasing dependence of nations on underground pipes for water supply are expected to augment the growth of the global ductile iron pipe market during the forecast period.

Moreover, leading market players operating in the global ductile iron pipe market are looking to adopt several growth strategies to enhance their positions and increase their global footprints. Mergers & acquisitions, the establishment of new & advanced facilities, and creating awareness regarding the advantages of adopting ductile iron pipes are some of the most recent strategies adopted by these market players. This is expected to significantly add to the growth of the global ductile iron pipe market during the forecast period.

Also, the number of smart city projects is increasing at a rapid pace across the globe. The main aim of these projects is to enhance the overall surrounding of a city. Due to the rapidly growing urbanization worldwide, the need for smart living is growing. The enhancement of clean and safe drinking water access and reduction of exhaustive pollution levels are significant steps involved in the process. Thus, the rising number of smart infrastructure and smart city development projects by governments all across the globe to offer basic urban life requirements such as health & sustainable environment, affordable housing, adequate water and sanitation, and efficient wastewater management to people is expected to create ample growth opportunities for the global ductile iron pipe market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the rising penetration of ductile iron pipes, the fast-paced expansion of the end-use industries, the growing awareness about safe and clean drinking water among people, the enhancing usage of ductile iron pipes in water distribution & irrigation, the growing industrialization across the globe, the surging emphasis on the innovation of green construction materials, and the burgeoning investments in earthquake-resistant piping across major regions worldwide are among other primary factors boosting the growth of the global ductile iron pipe market.

However, the dearth of investment and proper regulations to enhance water supply services in under-developed countries and the demand-supply gap in raw materials required for ductile iron pipe manufacturing are anticipated to hinder the growth of the global ductile iron pipe market during the forecast period of 2021-2030.
