Behind the Wall Plumbing

US spending on behind the wall plumbing products is projected to rise 4.6% annually to $13.5 billion in 2022. Rising construction spending and the installation of more bathrooms in existing residences will boost demand as more pipe and fittings will be needed to connect bathrooms to water and sewer mains. Additional demand advances will be supported by the rising number of plumbing fixtures in bathrooms and kitchens. Pipe, values, and fittings will be used more extensively to connect these fixtures to plumbing networks.
