New Developments Fueling Pre-Insulated Pipe Market Expansion:

In May 2022, Huntsman, in association with BRUGG Pipes, has innovated a next-gen polyurethane foam system having outstanding insulation properties that can be utilized to develop thermally efficient, extremely flexible, pre-insulated pipes for linking local heating units and ground source heat pumps to commercial and domestic buildings. The new innovation is predicted to cater to the growing demand for heat pumps.

In 2021, Armacell introduced two upgraded versions of its pre-insulated seamless copper pipes, DuoSplit and Tubolit Split. Since they are easy to install, flexible, and robust, these products deliver benefits to installers and end users alike. The newly launched durable and environment-friendly products are enjoying wider spectrum of applications.

Pre-Insulated Pipe Market: Category-wise Insights

Which Material Accounts for the Highest Demand in Pre-insulated Pipe Production?

The demand for pre-insulated pipe raw materials used in the production of pre-insulated pipes varies as per the end-use industry. For instance, the oil & gas sector generates major demand for metals & alloy-based pipes. Metal pre-insulated pipes are expected to hold a major share of the global pre-insulated pipes market. Demand for metal pre-insulated pipes is expected to rise strongly in the forecast period.

Metal pre-insulated pipes, like pre-insulated copper pipes, are used to protect the piping from external environmental threats, offering increased safety precautions and advanced corrosion mitigation techniques. These unique properties are gaining considerable momentum with leading pre-insulated pipe market players constantly innovating pre-insulated pipe design, and developing and launching new products.

What are the Prospects of Single Pipe Configurations?

Pre-insulated pipes are available in both single-pipe and twin-pipe configurations. Of these, single-pipe configurations are expected to reflect relatively higher popularity owing to lower costs and easier installations, despite the better durability of twin-pipe alternatives. In addition, single pipe configurations are preferred as they enable improved heat transmission, which allows for higher versatility in application.

Which End-Use Sector Drives Demand for Pre-insulated Pipes?

The share of pre-insulated pipe applications in district heating and cooling end-use applications is relatively higher. The district heating and cooling sector accounts for close to 27% of the global share. This is followed closely by the oil & gas end-use sector which holds nearly a quarter of the global market.

Which Installation Type has Predominant Market Share?

Below-ground installations are major contributors to revenue, accounting for nearly 70% of the global pre-insulated pipe sector. Pre-insulated pipes in major underground projects are primarily used for the construction of heating and cooling systems in residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Revenue generation will remain specifically dependent upon the sales of pre-insulated pipes for district heating and cooling systems in the long term.
