[Research Report] The trenchless pipe relining market size is expected to grow from US$ 2,211.66 million in 2023 to US$ 2,954.71 million by 2028; it is estimated to record a CAGR of 6.0% from 2023 to 2028.

Leakage from pipelines can cause significant environmental damage and economic losses. While pipelines were designed and constructed to maintain integrity, it is difficult to avoid leakage in a pipeline system during its lifetime. Enabling methods to reduce the event of leakages is necessary to minimize damage. Thus, many governments have imposed strict regulations regarding the maintenance of pipeline networks and reducing the occurrence of water leakages. For instance,

  • Federal and state agencies regulate pipelines across the US. Interstate pipelines are managed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission regulates pipelines, storage, and natural gas transportation in interstate commerce and liquefied natural gas facilities. It also oversees the operation of pipeline facilities at the US points of entry for natural gas imports and exports and analyzes the environmental impacts of natural gas projects.
  • Federal legislation establishes the guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality (GCDWQ). Federal representatives from departments are responsible for producing and providing safe and reliable drinking water in areas of Canada.
  • After the recommendation from the National Infrastructure Commission, Water companies in the UK committed to a 50% reduction in leakage from 2017–2018 levels by 2050.

Such government initiatives to minimize leakage and maintain pipeline networks propel the adoption of trenchless pipe relining solutions, which fuels the growth of the trenchless pipe relining market

According to the Government of Canada, there were more than 840,000 km of transmission, gathering, and distribution pipelines in Canada as of 2020. A significant portion of linear water infrastructure was over 50 years old in 2020. In fact, around 5 km of water, sewer, and stormwater pipes were built before 1970. Such aged pipelines require proper repairing and maintenance without disturbing the daily lives, which is possible through trenchless pipe relining technology. Public water infrastructure in Canada included 4,126 wastewater treatment plants and lagoon systems, 3,342 water treatment facilities, and 472,488 km of underground pipes as of 2020. Municipalities in Canada were continually thinking about how to renew and repair this critical infrastructure. As municipalities addressed their infrastructure needs, trenchless pipe relining proved to play a pivotal role.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on North America Trenchless Pipe Relining Market Growth

In 2020, the rapid spread of the coronavirus had a negative impact the growth of the trenchless pipe relining market globally. Due to the imposition of lockdown and restriction of human movement, the people could not carry out any repair and maintenance activity for their drainage and water pipeline system further limiting the growth of the trenchless pipe relining market globally. The US was the most affected country in North America due to COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the strict regulations imposed by the US government in Q2 of 2020, all human activities were restricted, which led to a temporary halt in pipeline repair and maintenance activities. Also, the temporary suspension in the manufacturing of trenchless pipe relining solutions has negatively affected the growth of the trenchless pipe relining market during the pandemic. However, as soon as transportation activities resumed, the market started to recover. The plumbing industry in the US restarted its operation in Q4 of 2020. Also, post lockdown the government of North American countries made various investments in rehabilitating existing pipelines for better functionality. In November 2021, the government of the US approved the investment of US$ 15 billion for lead pipe remediation. Furthermore, an additional US$ 970 million was approved for rural water and waste-water programs, including lead remediation. Thus, such an increase in government investments in North America will fuel the market growth in the forecasted period.

Market Insights – Trenchless Pipe Relining Market

Based on geography, the trenchless pipe relining market is primarily segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), the Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). Asia Pacific held the largest trenchless pipe relining market share in 2022 and is expected to retain its dominance during the forecast period. Further, Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR in the global trenchless pipe relining market during the forecast period.

According to Chinese government statistics, in 2021, the national pipeline network was more than 3.1 million km, which involved ~ 920,000 km of urban water supply pipe; 778,800 km of gas pipe; 744,000 km of sewer pipe; 400,000 km of heating pipe; and 169,000 km of long-distance oil and natural gas pipelines. However, due to the low quality of construction materials and poor site management, there is an increased need for pipeline rehabilitation in the country. The most common rehabilitation methods used in China are UV CIPP, spiral wound, SIPP, felt liner-hot water, and thermo form (FIPP) in sewer pipelines. Multiple pipeline rehabilitation projects were conducted in the country for better flow and functionality of pipes. In January 2021, iMPREG (Suzhou) Co, Ltd., a relining company, announced the completion of a DN1400 storm pipe rehabilitation over 187.2m in 5 sections in Jingan district, Shanghai. Similarly, in 2019, Shanghai Yufan Co. Ltd. announced that they had cured a DN1800, 7m deep pipe using felt liner-hot water. The growing adoption of such trenchless pipe relining solutions in the country is propelling the trenchless pipe relining market growth.
