“As a mature sector, albeit one where material substitution has been a major feature in the last few years, market conditions for tubes and pipes notably improved as the year progressed in 2013. Moreover, 2014 is witnessing further growth, as expectations of continued market development have now replaced the stop-start nature of the recovery previously seen post economic downturn.”

Some questions answered in this report include:
There is no universally agreed definition differentiating pipes and tubes. The precise definition of what constitutes a pipe or tube varies according to the type of material and its application. In some sectors a tube is considered to be a foundry product, while in others it is considered to be of a smaller diameter than a pipe. A standard definition of a tube consists of an outside diameter of less than 150mm. However, the terms are largely interchangeable in most sectors so both tubes and pipes have been included in this report.
Tubes and pipes are characteristically cylindrical products used for the conveying of liquids. They can be either underground or above ground and may be flexible or rigid. Where applicable the coverage in this report also includes fittings that are either supplied with tubes and pipes or supplied separately. While some materials allow tubes and pipes to be supplied in long sections, it is more common for pieces of pipe and tube to be joined to other sections to provide a pipe or tube system.
The following materials used in the production of tubes and pipes are quantified in this report:
