Behind The Wall Plumbing

US demand for behind the wall plumbing products is forecast to see annual growth of 6.5 percent through 2020. Advances will be spurred by increasing building construction activity and design trends that call for homes and businesses to have more and larger bathrooms and larger kitchens. More pipe and related fittings will be needed to carry water and waste flows to and from the fittings and fixtures located in these rooms.

Pipe Will Remain the Leading Behind the Wall Plumbing Product

Behind the Wall Plumbing Products covered by the study include:

Pipe

Fittings

Valves

Fire Sprinklers

Pipe accounted the largest share of behind the wall plumbing products demand in 2015 and will continue to do so going forward. Metal pipes (such as copper and galvanized steel) will lose market share to plastic pipe. PEX pipe will see the fastest demand gains because of its low cost and flexibility, which makes it highly suitable for plumbers installing radiant heating systems and other amenities. PVC pipe will also experience strong growth as a cheap, lightweight alternative to cast iron.

Potable Water and Drain, Waste, and Vent Applications to See Rapid Growth

Behind the Wall Plumbing Products can be characterized as being one of three main types:

Fire Suppression Systems

Potable Water Distribution

Drain, Waste, & Vent (DWV)

Fire suppression systems accounted for the largest share of behind the wall plumbing products demand in 2015; however, those products used in potable water distribution and DWV applications will see the faster gains going forward. Advances will be fueled by design trends that call for homes and businesses to have multiple bathrooms, many of which are situated far from a residence’s existing water mains. Additional lengths of pipe and more fittings will be needed to move fresh and waste water to and from these extra bathrooms.

Diverse Groups of Companies Serve the Behind the Wall Plumbing Industry

A broad range of companies participate in the production of behind the wall plumbing products. Metal pipe manufacturers have traditionally had leading market shares, but suppliers of such items as plastic pipe and fittings have gained market share because of their products’ low cost and ease of installation. Key participants in this industry include Atkore International, Cambridge-Lee Industries, Charlotte Pipe & Foundry, JM Eagle, Lubrizol, Olin Brass, REHAU, Reliable Automatic Sprinkler, Reliance Worldwide, Tyco International, UPONOR, and Victaulic.
