Analyzing the COVID-19 Effect: Near Term Demand for Ductile Iron Pipes Declines with Closure of Manufacturing and Industrial Activities During Pandemic

Ductile iron pipes market leaders are expected to seek strategic mergers and acquisitions, in addition to optimizing supply chains to partially mitigate losses resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

ROCKVILLE, MD / ACCESSWIRE / June 23, 2020 / The coronavirus outbreak has had a severe impact on the global economy. Also, strict regulations associated with movement and transport have impacted a number of industrial verticals. Manufacturing and infrastructural activities have been temporarily suspended, to minimize the risk of contagion in workplaces. Consequently, these trends are projected to have a negative impact on the global ductile iron pipes market in the short term.

The global ductile iron pipe market has been estimated to grow at a healthy 5.7% CAGR throughout the assessment period between 2020 and 2030. As per the Fact.MR report, industrial applications such as water supply systems will sustain the demand for ductile iron pipes once restrictions are relaxed. The growth of infrastructural and manufacturing projects will also aid in strengthening demand.

“Growing trends of industrialization and urbanization is substantially boosting the need for ductile iron pipes. Applications in sewage water application has also grown as governments are investing increased resources towards water sanitation initiatives. Ductile iron pipes are commonly utilized for wastewater and water supply management. Strong support and investment by governments in wastewater management drives the demand for ductile iron pipes,” says the FACT.MR study.

COVID-19 Impact on Ductile Iron Pipes Market

With the high contagiousness of coronavirus, the drop in industrial and infrastructure projects has restricted the sales and application of ductile iron pipes. Also, the sudden drop in new manufacturing orders are also limiting market growth. Governments are also limiting the use of public water supply to minimize the spread of the contagion, hampering applications of ductile iron pipes.

On the other hand, the critical need of water supply and waste water applications, particularly in developing countries will help in a strong recovery of the industry post the pandemic. Also, rising applications in industrial and manufacturing will help market growth once the pandemic is brought under control.
