    What is Sprayed in Place Pipe?

    Sprayed-in-place pipe (SIPP) is a trenchless method of constructing or rehabilitating pipes, using a mixture of cementitious material and water sprayed onto an existing pipe's interior surface or a temporary support structure in the shape of a pipe. The mixture hardens to form a new pipe that is strong and durable, with a smooth interior surface that provides good hydraulic performance. SIPP can be used for various applications, including sewer and stormwater pipes, potable water pipes, and industrial pipelines. It is often used in situations where traditional pipe replacement methods are difficult, expensive, or disruptive to the environment or existing infrastructure.

    Market Dynamics

    Sprayed-in-place pipe (SIPP) is a rapidly emerging trenchless pipe rehabilitation method that offers a cost-effective means of rehabilitating corroded, leaking, or damaged pipelines. It is a seamless method and can rehabilitate pipes ranging from 4” to 110” in diameter. The lining material used for SIPP has to be compliant with the certification and standards of NSF/ANSI 61, which has various norms to prevent the contamination of potable drinking water. SIPP is the third-most preferred trenchless technology by the municipal authorities of the USA for rehabilitating deteriorated pipelines.

    There are various trenchless methods available for the rehabilitation of damaged pipelines, such as SIPP, CIPP, and Slip lining. CIPP is the most preferred method for small-diameter pipes, whereas SIPP is more preferred for pipe diameter ranges between 18 to 36 inches. SIPP accounts for a double-digit share in the total trenchless pipe rehabilitation market in 2022. CIPP is the most dominant trenchless rehabilitation method, followed by SIPP. Both methods are well established in mature markets and are briskly gaining market traction in developing markets.

    Over the past five years, the SIPP market has tremendously grown with the rise in government expenditure on rehabilitating pipeline infrastructures coupled with the aging pipeline infrastructures of several major economies of the world. Furthermore, aging pipelines, continuous increase in government spending and awareness of the trenchless methods with a continuous shift from conventional dig-and-replace methods to trenchless rehabilitation methods, and incessant efforts by the major players towards the development of high-performance and cost-effective trenchless methods are likely to propel the market at a healthy pace over the next five years.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The market was estimated to continue to grow in the year 2020 as well. However, the rapid spread of the pandemic has slightly interrupted its growth trajectory with the decline in the global economy, which has forced government utilities to temporarily curtail their investments in new projects. As a result, the SIPP market growth contracted significantly in the year 2020. However, quick recovery in the market led by an increase in government spending on pipeline infrastructure coupled with increasing usage of trenchless technologies in developing economies, which fulfilled voids generated due to the pandemic.

    North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and RoW

    North America is to remain the dominant region and Asia-Pacific is to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period.


    By Application Type

    The market is segmented into water main pipes, wastewater pipes, and storm pipes. Water main pipe is likely to remain the most dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment in the market during the forecast period. Large infrastructure pipelines of the water mains coupled with the increasing propensity of government waterbodies to rehabilitate deteriorated water main pipelines to conserve the loss of clean drinking water are likely to be the major demand generator of the market over the next five years. The rehabilitation of wastewater pipes and storm pipes is comparatively less regulated, thus, there is the presence of a large number of players in wastewater and stormwater pipe rehabilitation.

    By Material Type

    The market is segmented into cement mortar, epoxy coating, polyurea coating, polyurethane coating, and geopolymer mortar. Cement mortar is projected to remain the most dominant material type in the SIPP market during the forecast period, whereas, geopolymer mortar is likely to be the fastest-growing material type during the same period. Cement mortar is the oldest material among the SIPP family, which is being used since the 1920s for the rehabilitation of pipelines. Longer service life, low cost, excellent corrosion resistance, ease of installation, and excellent structural strength are the key benefits offered by cement mortar compared to other materials.

    By Pipe Diameter Type

    The 18-36-inch pipe category is estimated to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period, propelled by a large variety of pipes falling under this pipe diameter range, whereas the <18-inch pipe category is likely to be the fastest-growing segment during the same period. Many factors are depending on the diameter of the pipe, such as the selection of equipment and quantity of material to be used. SIPP is among the most preferred trenchless method for the rehabilitation of 18-36-inch diameter pipes.

    Regional Analysis

    North America is projected to remain the largest market for SIPP during the forecast period. Aging pipeline infrastructures of the North American region with most of them having passed the average lifespan of 50 years coupled with increasing focus on government utilities to control water main break rates is the key demand generator of the region’s market. Rehabilitation of this infrastructure improves the service life of pipes by around 30-70 years. The USA is not only the largest market for SIPP in North America but also in the world. The country is the early mover in trenchless pipe rehabilitation concerning material adoption and technology.

    Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth in the market during the forecast period. Japan, China, and Australia are the growth engines of the Asia-Pacific’s SIPP market. These economies are continuously generating a huge demand for SIPP to support their aging pipeline infrastructures. Japan is set to maintain its dominance in the region’s market over the next five years, whereas China is likely to be the fastest-growing market in the region during the same period. Furthermore, key economies of the region are incessantly increasing their infrastructure investment with the purpose to decrease water loss and to improve water quality. All these factors are likely to contribute to the high growth of the SIPP market in the region.
