Study Highlights

· Large diameter pipe in the US is forecast to increase 2.3 percent yearly to 194 million feet in 2005. Growth stimulants include efforts to meet clean water mandates, needs to revitalize aging and obsolete sewer and drain networks, and continued highway and street construction. Concrete pipe will remain dominant due to the material's durability and cost effectiveness. Plastic pipe will present the best growth opportunities, especially in sewer and water distribution applications, based on improvements in crush resistance and pressure tolerance. Storm sewers will remain the leading large diameter pipe market based on ongoing sewer upgrading programs and rising highway expenditures. Leaders in the large diameter pipe industry include J-M Manufacturing, CSR America, Hanson Building Materials America, Advanced Drainage Systems, Chevron Phillips Chemical, Bethlehem Steel and Ameron.

Market Environment

The Market Environment Section discusses factors influencing large diameter pipe demand, including the outlook for construction and regulatory considerations.

Public Spending on Infrastructure MARKET ENVIRONMENT

This information provides you with an understanding and an analysis of the climate in which the large diameter pipe industry operates.

Since most of the funds for highway and street maintenance and construction are provided by the public sector, public budgeting and spending patterns are a major influence on road maintenance and construction activity. State and local governments disburse nearly all the funds for these projects, but about one-quarter of those funds are received as grants from the federal government. In addition, federal transportation programs often are structured to require state or local government units to match some portion of the federal disbursement. In the late 1990s, state governments enjoyed healthy budget surpluses, with strong tax revenue collections resulting from the economic expansion.

SAMPLE PAGE

Public spending on infrastructural projects is forecast to rise 1.3 percent annually in real (inflation-adjusted) terms through 2005. This spending is an important aspect of the nation's production and distribution of economic output and affects citizens' overall quality of life. Included in the infrastructure are highways, mass transit, railways, airports and water supply and wastewater treatment facilities. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that much of the water and sewer infrastructure in the US is plagued by leaks, collapse and pressure changes caused by corrosion damage, and must be replaced. Hydrogen sulfide gas and other acids are causing the most damage. Many water transmission and distribution lines have exceeded their anticipated lifespan or have inadequate capacity. Drinking water must also be protected against bacterial and other microbiological contaminants. Total highway spending, which has steadily increased over the past decade, is projected to grow two percent per annum in real terms through 2005. The enactment by Congress in 1998 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) will help accelerate mileage gains over the forecast period.

MATERIALS

The Materials Section provides demand for historical years and forecasts growth to 2005 and 2010. This information helps you: · Analyze your company's growth potential in the industry. · Outline your strategic plans for five and ten years out. · Establish sales goals.

Cast Iron Pipe Demand for large diameter cast iron pipe will expand nearly two percent per annum to almost two billion pounds in 2005, and 23.8 million feet. Stimulating advances will be opportunities in SAMPLE PAGE water distribution applications, with drainage pipe growth slightly lagging. Water distribution applications, which utilize cast iron's superior pressure capabilities, durability and strength, will expand at a slightly above average pace to 1.5 billion pounds. Continued growth in municipal water uses will result from cast iron's comparative advantages in high pressure water uses, particularly in diameters of more than 14 inches. A recent application for ductile iron piping is providing water for electric utilities. American Cast Iron Pipe supplied 41 miles of 24 inch diameter ductile iron pipe to provide more than five million gallons of water daily to an electric generating plant in Henderson, Texas, as well as 31 miles of twelve inch diameter pipe for a return line. Twenty inch or larger diameter concrete pipe is normally used in this application. However, in this particular use, ductile iron pipe proved less costly and could be delivered more quickly. Smaller drainage markets will expand at a slower rate to 465 million pounds in 2005 with further growth hindered by competition from high density polyethylene pipe. Cast iron soil pipe (drainage) with diameters of eight inches and over is considered large diameter pipe. The most common diameters are eight inches and twelve inches.

Markets

The Markets Section analyzes trends and considers the threats and opportunities in each of the major markets for large diameter pipe.

Natural Gas - Pipe Demand by Material

MARKETS

The information presented will help you: · Focus your sales and marketing efforts on high growth areas. Propose new areas for development.

Demand for large diameter natural gas transmission and distribution pipe is projected to increase 3.5 percent yearly through 2005 to 11.3 million feet. Opportunities will hinge upon ample US natural gas resources and needs to access and distribute a clean burning source of energy. Mandates from the Clean Air Act require cleaner smokestack and exhaust emissions, stimulating natural gas demand as utilities and industries convert from oil and coal to cleaner burning natural gas.

SAMPLE PAGE

·

The most efficient means of transporting natural gas is via pipeline, forming an extensive network of trunk lines, branch lines and pumping stations criss-crossing the entire country. Large diameter natural gas pipe markets consist of steel and high density polyethylene.

Demand for large diameter steel pipe is forecast to grow 2.6 percent yearly through 2005 as a result of steel's excellent performance in a variety of applications encompassing oil country tubular goods (used for exploring, drilling and recovering natural gas), large diameter trunk lines and distribution lines. Steel pipe is used in both drilling and transmission applications due to its strength and high temperature resistance. Pipe demand will remain dependent upon the construction of new transmission pipelines by Material Large Diameter Water Distribution Pipe Demandand replacement of existing pipelines. Primary large

Research & Development INDUSTRY STRUCTURE

Research and development efforts in the large diameter pipe industry center on refinements to existing production processes, joining techniques, or materials or additive improvements. For instance, improved types of concrete are being developed as pipe materials which are more resistant to the effects of sulfuric acid and other corrosive chemicals. This zeolite-based material consists of sodium silicate, fly ash and aggregate. Applications include trenches, sumps, manholes and corrosion resistant concrete pipe. The material is competitive with coatings costing more than $5 per square foot.

SAMPLE PAGE

Areas of plastic pipe research include improved designs (ribs for increased crush strength), resins (improved grades of high density polyethylene) and processing technologies (coextrusion, foaming and rotomolding). Particular emphasis is being placed on developing improved grades of polyvinyl chloride for high pressure applications and higher throughput extruders. Plastic pipe research is more dynamic because of the variety of resins, compounds and additives that may be used compared to its concrete, steel or cast iron counterparts. Machinery improvements are yielding ever larger plastic pipe diameters, with faster line speeds. Dual wall HDPE corrugated pipe is currently available in diameters up to 60 inches, with larger diameters being pursued. Other improvements include producing triple wall sanitary sewer pipe and forming integral bells and spigots in-line.

Competitive Strategies

Low cost leadership and market segmentation are the leading strategies employed by large diameter pipe producers. Low cost leadership is achieved by being vertically integrated, permitting ready access to stable, low cost feedstock materials. Sizable producers also have more control over additive and other costs
