    The Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) Market: Highlights

    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 rehabilitation of sewer pipe, industrial gas pipe, potable water pipe, 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 under 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 the CIPP technology is limited in the 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 aged 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 three-fourths of the trenchless pipe rehabilitation market. The global CIPP market grew at a healthy rate over the past five years; however, it is anticipated that the market to record a slowdown in its growth trajectory amid the pandemic. Based on the analysis of previous downturns, such as The Great Recession (2008) and other crisis/pandemics, as well as detailed discussions with industry players and experts, Stratview Research estimates that the trenchless technology market including CIPP business will record a minimal impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The CIPP market is estimated to rebound at a great pace from 2021 onwards, filling all the voids (market loss) generated due to the pandemic, ultimately driving the market to land to the value of US$ 3.0 billion in 2026.

    The shrinking economy may imprint a short-term impact on the spending of municipalities and governments for infrastructure projects, leading to some delays in the market demand. However, the long-term prospect seems promising with huge growth opportunities. Aging potable and sewage water structure, increasing spending by municipalities and utilities on rehabilitation, increasing awareness about the benefits of trenchless methods, and high-performance of CIPP over competing technologies are major growth drivers of the global CIPP market.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, tube manufacturers, CIPP liner manufacturers, installation contractors, municipalities, and utility owners. The key players in the CIPP market are Per Aarsleff A/S, Ashimori Industry Co. Ltd., iMPREG GmbH, Insituform Technologies, Inc. (Part of Aegion Corporation), IPR (Inland Pipe Rehabilitation), Layne Inliner, LLC, Perma-Liner Industries, LLC, RELINEEUROPE AG, SAERTEX multiCom® GmbH, SAK Construction, LLC, and Sekisui SPR Americas, LLC. Developing thinner, stronger, and eco-friendly liners, execution of 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.
