Pre-insulated pipes are also used for maintaining liquid temperature of those pipes, called isolated pipes or bonding pipes. For both heating and cooling networks Smithline offers insulated pipe systems. The SYSTEM PRE-INSULATED PIPING is ideally suited for use in areas that need to reduce heat loss. This product range was designed specifically for the supply of hot fluids to networks. Installers can overcome numerous problems in installing heat distribution and packaging systems due to their reliability, easy to install and relevant physico-mechanic properties of the materials used.

Pre-Insulated Pipes Market Analysis

Pre-insulated pipe systems are commonly used for the transport of gas and liquids to the heating and temperature control district. It is used mainly for the supply of warm water and local heating in North America and Europe. The main goal and aim of the pipes are to conserve the fluid and gas temperature in the pipes. The primary isolation substance of pre-isolated pipes is polyurethane foam.

The growth of the global pre-insulated piping market is expected to be driven primarily by growing adoption of pre-insulated pipes in niche applications and increased knowledge about energy efficient products. Furthermore, the expanding positive demand for pre-insulate pipes in end-use applications is also expected to generate growth opportunities for the industry over the forecast period due to increased investments in emerging countries.

Due to their superior nature, pre-insulated pipes allow cost savings. The rapid implementation of such CO2-reducing systems has resulted in strict environmental regulations. Higher incentives for sustainable heating and refrigeration systems are offered in Europe. In Europe there are financial advantages such as direct subsidies, tax cuts (direct and indirect taxes), preferential rates and incentives to subsidize housing.

Size economies, per-use wage and decreased energy losses are additional advantages. Almost 90% of heating and nearly 100% of cooling in the EU is made and used for single buildings, while the rest is provided through district heating and cooling networks, an attractive market in the areas of renewable heating and cooling systems.

Restraint: Unpredictability in price of Raw Materials

The most common raw materials used in the production of pre-insulated pipes are polyethylene, polybutene, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC), fiber enhanced plastics (FRP) and stainless steel. Changes to raw materials' demand and supply can have a huge effect on the industry of pre-insulated pipes. Since some of these products come from petroleum, a rise in crude oil prices leads to rises in raw material prices, thus affecting the pre-isolated piping industry. Price fluctuations of the raw materials often affect manufacturers' operating margins, which make it hard for them to sustain themselves.

Challenge: Rigorous regulatory compliances

Highly regulated output of pre-insulated tubing. For the manufacturing processes a range of regulations and compliances, including EN, ASTM, and API, were introduced. This is a significant entry obstacle for small and medium-sized manufacturers who are unable to make the large initial investments on the market and do not earn the cost to benefit ratio in the long term. The lack of incentives, for example debt provision, bond funding, city grants and unfair competition, makes new entrants even more difficult.

During the forecast era, Pre-insulated pipes will expand in Europe in the highest CGR. The pre-insulated pipes market in Europe is expected to account for the largest share of the projected era. As leading players in this region, Europe is the largest district heating sector. The growth of this market in Europe is driven by increased technological developments in communication, digitization and IoT integration, growing demand for energy-efficient solutions and increasing efforts to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. District heating is used to provide space heating and hot water for commercial, industrial, and residential applications.

Competitive Landscape

Global market for pre-insulated pipes is highly fragmented and the key players have used different strategies for growing their footprints in this market, such as launches of new products, extensions, alliances, joint ventures, collaborations, acquisitions, and others.
