Asbestos Cement Pipe Market Gain Impetus due to the Growing Demand over 2025


Global Industry Analysis

The Asbestos Cement Pipe (ACP) Market is a growing industry, driven by the increasing demand for durable and corrosion-resistant piping solutions. Asbestos cement pipes are used in a variety of applications, ranging from plumbing systems to drainage systems, and they offer superior advantages compared to other pipe materials.

The asbestos cement pipe market is expected to witness potential growth in the coming years owing to the growing oil and gas industry. Infrastructure development in developing countries is a key driver for the demand for asbestos cement pipes. These constructions call for better sewage and drainage systems, thus significantly boosting the asbestos cement pipe market.

There are three types of asbestos cement pipes: unpressurized, pressurized and cable protected. Pipes made of unpressurized asbestos cement are frequently used in chimneys, drainage systems, buildings and electrical industries. Pressure asbestos cement pipes are used for the transfer of hot and cold industrial and drinking water, ventilation, water supply, waste disposal, etc.

Asbestos cement pipe for cable protection has high heat resistance, alkali resistance, acid resistance and good heat dissipation. Asbestos cement pipe for cable protection has a service life of 10 years or more and is commonly used for concrete encapsulation, sidewalks, highways, etc.

Asbestos fiber has higher strength than iron and has the same thermal coefficient of cement and asbestos, providing three-dimensional homogeneous microscopic reinforcement to asbestos cement, which can withstand more water pressure than ordinary concrete pipes of the same thickness.

Asbestos cement pipe is highly resistant to corrosion and is commonly used in water supply systems, drainage systems and gas lines. Asbestos pipes have a long service life, high crushing strength and toughness. Asbestos pipes can therefore be used even in situations of heavy traffic and external loads.

Asbestos cement pipes consume negligible amounts of energy in their manufacture and do not deplete natural resources. Asbestos cement pipes, once connected and properly positioned, do not require maintenance or replacement as there is no erosion.

Asbestos Cement Pipe Market: Dynamics

Asbestos cement pipes have a lifespan of 5 to 10 years, and tens of thousands of asbestos cement pipes already installed have reached the end of their lives and need to be replaced. Hence, the demand in the asbestos cement pipe market increases.

Today, asbestos cement pipes for cable protection are more in demand in the construction sector as they lead the market for asbestos cement pipes because they are easy to install, cost effective, easy to replace and have a long service life.

However, asbestos cement pipe market growth is slowing due to asbestos bans in certain countries due to its harmful effects related to manufacturing and end use. The availability of alternative materials with reduced hazardous substance content, greater durability and lower procurement costs also serves to deter the use of asbestos cement pipes to some degree.
