Highlights on the segments of the Pipe Fittings Market

Based on material types, the market is divided into aluminum, cast iron, copper, glass, plastic, and steel. The plastic pipe fittings segment held 34.09% share of the market in 2019, owing to wide applications of PVC and PE pipe fittings in several industrial and residential piping systems. Plastic pipe fittings are prominent fittings that and are available in socket weld (otherwise known as solvent weld) and threaded styles. Socket weld fittings are meant to be chemically welded in place, thus making installation quick and simple. Plastic pipes are usually dry, then marked as the solvent used to connect them works particularly quickly. Couplings are commonly used to link and connect straight lengths of pipe. Fittings can be provided in a range of materials common to plastic pipes, including PVC, RPVC, and CPVC. Common fittings in PVC pipe include elbows, reducers, covers, tables, waxes, joints, and crosses. The standard cross-sectional profile for most PVC pipe or tubing fittings is circular; however, other profile shapes available in the market are square PVC fittings. Increasing use of plastic pipe fittings in supplying drainage from residences to septic tanks and its rising usage for irrigation in fields is estimated to drive the plastic segment. The cast iron segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period. This is attributed to government initiatives across the world to build smart city projects and improve clean drinking water access.

In terms of applications, the pipe fittings market is classified as drainage and sewage disposal, pumps and piping system, HVAC, transportation pipes, water supply, and others. The water supply segment accounted for 21.52% share of the market in 2019 and is expected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period, owing to rising urbanization in several developing countries, which is increasing infrastructural developments. Any pipe or tube designed to deliver drinking water to customers is considered as a water supply pipe. Large diameter pipes supply water to towns, smaller branch lines cater to street or groups of houses, and small diameter pipes located within individual buildings supply water to individual water outlets. The size of water pipes varies and can be as large as 3.65 meters in diameter or as small as 12.7 millimeters for individual outlets within a structure. Therefore, the pipe fittings for water supply pipes vary in shape and size, depending on the requirements. PVC, cast iron, copper, steel, concrete or burned clay are all typical materials used to make water pipes and its fittings. Individual water pipes can be joined together to form longer runs using pipe fittings such as flange, nipple, compression, or soldered connectors. Government initiatives for better water resources management to increase water supply to the growing population in is estimated to fuel the market.

Based on end-users, the market is categorized as agricultural, industrial, residential, and Others. The industrial segment accounted for 29.86% share of the market in 2019 and is anticipated to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The industrial segment is further categorized into chemical industry, HVAC industry, oil & gas industry, power plants, and others. Pipe fittings have wide range of applications in numerous industry verticals such as power & energy, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals & biotech, semiconductor, pulp & paper, construction materials, and others. A large number of pipes are used in these industries to transfer liquids, gasses, slurries, and other solids and fluids from one place to another, and hence different categories of pipe fittings are used depending on the piping material used. Thus, pipe fittings play a pivotal role for the proper functioning of pipes and tubes in these industries for various applications. The industrial segment is anticipated to hold a significant market share, owing to rising need of transporting fluid, gas, and raw materials within the factory to complete the production process.

The residential segment is projected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period, due to growing residential constructions in several countries, leading to high requirement for piping systems and fittings, which is expected to boost the market.

In terms of distribution channels, the pipe fittings market is bifurcated into offline and online. The offline segment accounted for 38.51% share of the market in 2019 and is expected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The online segment is expected to expand at considerable CAGR due to increasing e-commerce platforms across different industries resulting in high investments on e-commerce supply chain, which is expected to drive the segment during the forecast period.
