    Market Insights

    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 liner 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 incessant growth in its penetration across the world. There is already high penetration of 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 a mammoth share of the trenchless pipe rehabilitation market. The global CIPP market grew at a healthy rate over the past five years. The market 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 fueling 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 5.0% during the forecast period, to reach a value of US$ 3.8 Billion in 2028.

    Segments' Analysis

    Segmentations

    List of Sub-Segments

    Dominant and Fastest-Growing Segments

    Pipe Diameter-Type

    <1-Foot Diameter, 1-2.5-Feet Diameter, 2.5-5-Feet Diameter, and >5-Feet Diameter

    <1-foot diameter pipe is likely to remain the dominant segment during the forecast period.

    Resin-Type

    Polyester Resin, Vinyl Ester Resin, and Epoxy Resin

    Polyester resin-based CIPP is expected to remain the dominant resin type, whereas, epoxy resin-based CIPP is expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the foreseen future.

    Fabric-Type

    Polyester Fabric, Glass Fabric, and Other

    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.

    Curing-Type

    Water Curing, Steam Curing, and UV Curing

    Steam curing continues to rule the market, owing to its less curing time and stronger finished products.

    Coating-Type

    Polypropylene (PP)-Coated CIPP, Polyethylene (PE) -Coated CIPP, Polyurethane (PU) -Coated CIPP, Non-Coated CIPP, and Other Coatings CIPP.

    PP-coated CIPP is likely to remain the most dominant coating type of the market.

    Region

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW.

    North America is projected to remain the largest market, whereas, Asia-Pacific is likely to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period.

     

    Stratview Research has firstly segmented the CIPP market based on the pipe 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. An 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 felt 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 liners 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-Market-Dominant-Segments

    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 be 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, attractive price-to-performance ratio, and 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 constructed 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.
