Pipe: Products & Markets

Pipe: Products & Markets

US demand for pipe is forecast to increase 6.6% per year to $51.1 billion in 2022. Growth is expected to rebound from declines posted during the 2012-2017 period as oil and natural gas drilling activity recovers from historic lows in 2016. Healthy building construction activity and an expected increase in funding for water and sewer infrastructure projects will also boost demand.
