Pre-insulated Pipes Market to Expand at 8% CAGR through 2027
Energy conservation approaches are quintessential to tackle the ever-existing challenges of climate change, and energy-efficient buildings exhibit huge potential in curbing this alarming situation. Additionally, governments across the world are enacting norms for the adoption of district heating and cooling (DHC) systems and establishment of smart building solutions, with the aim to lower energy consumption during fluid transportation. In line with these trends, the global installation of pre-insulated pipes would nearly double over the foreseeable timeframe of 2019-2027. Growing preference for net-zero energy buildings (NZEB), as they generate renewable electricity on-site, and ensure reduced emissions, is further offering fertile ground for manufacturers.
Pre-insulated Pipes Consumption Scenario
- The global pre-insulated pipes market will surpass the US$ 10 Bn mark in 2023.
- The market is expected to register a CAGR of 8% over the forecast period (2019-2027), primarily attributable to the rising adoption of district heating and cooling (DHC) systems, and smart building solutions.
- Twin pre-insulated pipes continue to attract greater investments; single pre-insulated pipes to witness drop in market share.
- The surging need to achieve energy efficiency in order to tackle climate change would offer worthwhile prospects for pre-insulated pipe manufacturers.
- North America and Europe to offer value-capture opportunities; market in Asia Pacific (APAC) to experience double-digit CAGR.
KEY FACTORS SHAPING PRE-INSULATED PIPES MARKET
Increasing Demand from Emerging Countries
Growth of the pre-insulated pipes market is majorly driven by increasing development of smart buildings and cutting-edge innovations in fluid supply across the globe. Furthermore, rising construction spending in various countries such as India and China is expected to create meaningful business opportunities over the coming decade. Government authorities of various countries are emphasizing on the development of pipelines for easy supply of drinking water. Emerging countries such as India and the UAE are expected to create opportunities for numerous foreign players to expand their regional presence by partnering with local players.
Rising Innovations in Pipe Material Ingredients
Pipe material plays a vital role in fluid quality without the effect of external factors such as UV rays and corrosion, among others. Most manufacturers are adopting polyurethane (PU) material for coating purposes. However, some players are also using materials such as polyolefin, owing to various applications of pre-insulated pipes such as underground and above-ground piping.
North America and Europe Most Lucrative Regions in Global Market
Most cold countries are concentrated in North America and Europe, and the high demand for pre-insulated pipes is foreseen in these two regions. Furthermore, these regions have developed infrastructure for smart buildings, which, in turn, is expected to create considerable business opportunity for stakeholders over the coming decades. Furthermore, European regulatory bodies are enforcing strict regulations on pre-insulated pipes, which are expected to fulfil the demand from various end-use industries.
However, rapid development of Building Internet of Things (BIoT) in Asia Pacific (APAC) coupled with supportive government policies to make smart cities in various countries such as India is projected to accelerate the demand for pre-insulated pipes over the coming decade.
However, governments are imposing nationwide lockdowns and travel restrictions amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. China – the epicenter of the pandemic – is a hub of raw materials required for the manufacturing pre-insulated pipes, such as PU. Prolonged logistics paralysis and manufacturing downtime in the country is resulting in delivery shortfalls, which will thus hamper the production capacity of players in the pre-insulated pipes market.
Pre-insulated Pipes Market: Structure Analysis
- The global pre-insulated pipes market is a fragmented market on account of the presence of numerous international as well as regional players.
- Substantial investments in R&D activities by companies for enhancing product portfolios are expected to improve the growth prospects of the pre-insulated pipes market.
- Key participants in the pre-insulated pipes market, such as LOGSTOR A/S, are focusing on rolling out cutting edge variety of products.

9 out of 10 Manufacturers Invest in Twin Pre-insulated Pipes
Twin pipes will continue to capture significant stakeholders’ investments in the pre-insulated pipes market throughout the forecast period. Developed particularly for heat pump applications, these twin pre-insulated pipes incorporate all connections in a single pipe – heating pipes, power, and sensor cables. Market players would reap over US$ 7 Bn from twin pipes in 2020. While twin pre-insulated pipes account for a leading revenue share, the single pipe variant would witness subsequent decline in its adoption.
North America Takes Lead; APAC Market to Firm its Grip
Market players are staying focused on North America for value-capture opportunities, owing to the rising adoption of DHC systems across downtown districts of the U.S. and Canada, and growth in domestic chemical processing and construction industries. The pre-insulated pipes market in this developed region would reach around US$ 5 Bn by 2027. Rapid development of Building Internet of Things (BIoT) coupled with supportive government policies to initiate smart city projects in China and India are driving the pre-insulated pipes market in Asia Pacific (APAC). The region will witness a double-digit growth curve in the years ahead.

Material Innovation – Key Winning Tactic
Pipe material plays a key role in the transmission of fluid in pristine quality, resisting external factors such as UV rays and corrosion. Market players are increasingly leveraging polyurethane (PU) composites to manufacture pre-insulated pipes for various end users such as chemical fluid suppliers and drinking water suppliers. The PU coating reduces around 40% heat loss as compared to conventional pipes, as well as enhances the service life of the pre-insulated pipes. Moreover, manufacturers are turning to polyolefin for applications such as below-the-ground and above-the-ground piping.
Twin pipes hold leading value share
Single pipes to witness gradual dip
How Growth will Unfold
Amidst ongoing smart city projects across the world, governments are showing preference for DHC systems as an energy-efficient alternative in commercial buildings as well as residential units, rather than conventional electric-driven HVAC insulation units. Pre-insulated pipes are an integral component in the transmission of steam and gases in such systems. In a similar fashion, they are witnessing demand upsurge in food & beverage processing, owing to their durability and non-corrosive attributes. However, high initial costs associated with pre-insulated pipes are limiting their application to large-scale enterprises. Further, as these pipes offer higher service life, market players are likely to see sluggishness in product movement over the next decade.
