[Research Report] The global drain cleaning equipment market was valued at US$ 1,769.92 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2028 to reach US$ 2,984.48 million by 2028.

Globally, the drain cleaning equipment market is heavily fragmented, with a substantial number of regional market players with limited business offerings and customer base. However, a selected number of market manufacturers dominate the global market with their strong brand recognition and competitive positioning. Factors such as low entry barriers, a notable number of market players, and competitively priced products have contributed to high market competition across the price-sensitive Asian market. In developed economies, such as the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, and Japan, the market is dominated by a selected number of recognized and well-positioned market players that provide several market-related offerings. Presently, numerous market players operating in the global drain cleaning equipment market provide a wide range of products—such as hand tools, pushrod cameras, locating equipment, jetters, rodders, flexible shaft machine, and continuous cable machines—that have applications across drain cleaning activities.

Europe dominated the overall drain cleaning equipment market in 2022, contributing ~29% revenue share, while North America and APAC held the second and third positions, respectively. Presently, the construction industry in Europe is plagued by high construction materials costs, rising inflation, ongoing energy crisis, and labor shortages. Despite the present economic slowdown, the future demand for housing in Europe is expected to be one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the construction sector across the region which is also propelling growth of drain cleaning equipment market size.

In North America, the US and Canada are among the key markets for drain cleaning equipment. The US is one of the largest economies globally, with highly developed infrastructure. The introduction of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) in 2021 is supporting the growth of public works projects. The law committed a spending of US$ 266 billion in the development of core infrastructure, which is expected to boost the demand for drain cleaning equipment. Construction industries in Canada and Mexico are presently facing short-term challenges including high construction materials costs, rising inflation, and labor shortages, which are expected to restrain drain cleaning equipment market growth temporarily.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Drain Cleaning Equipment Market Share


The APAC region constitutes the world's two most populated countries and manufacturing hubs across India and China. The COVID-19 outbreak significantly affected the smart toilet market in 2020. The imposition of a ban on commercial activities disrupted the industrial supply chains in APAC, leading to raw material shortages. India imposed strict lockdown and social isolation, which halted the manufacturing and production of drain cleaning equipment for several weeks, shrinking the country's economy. Furthermore, the Indian government restricted the import and export of critical raw materials and industrial equipment for numerous industry verticals, affecting the supply chain of various end-user industries. While the lockdowns were imposed in China at a much later stage, most of the country's trading partners had closed international borders in 2020. This resulted in a sharp decline in the export of drain cleaning equipment, among other items, affecting the country's economic growth.

Similarly, Japan and South Korea also imposed nationwide lockdowns to mitigate the growing number of COVID-19 cases nationwide. As a result, the subsequent lockdown and supply disruption of numerous industrial equipment and machinery across China, India, and other major economies significantly affected the APAC region's market growth. In addition, the closure of several retailers, distributors and sales representatives reduced the availability of drain cleaning machines from other European and North American drain cleaning equipment market players.

Market Insight – Drain Cleaning Equipment Market

The growing popularity of the do-it-yourself (DIY) culture, for residential maintenances, has resulted in the growth of individual users compared to professional end users, which is expected to provide good growth opportunities for the market in APAC in the coming years. Additionally, distributors are witnessing a high growth rate in APAC, owing to the lack of prominent market players across emerging nations. Furthermore, the growing population in Asia Pacific has led to an increase in demand for residential and commercial construction. Initiatives of various governments further support the growth in construction. Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) in India, National Housing Policy in Malaysia, and the Chinese government’s housing policy are some initiatives that have been boosting the growth of the construction sector in the region.

Governments of countries in the MEA are investing in developing infrastructure and drainage systems in a bid to improve living conditions. Countries in SAM are experiencing a rise in the middle-class population and growth in urbanization, and the governments of these economies are focusing on attracting private investments to boost the construction industry. Both regions have a considerable presence of small and medium drain cleaning equipment market players, resulting in the popularity of retail-based sales channels.

End User-Based Insights

Based on end user, the drain cleaning equipment market is segmented into residential, commercial, industrial, and municipal.
