Material Segmentation Analysis
On the basis of material, the electrical conduit systems market is categorized into following segments:

  • Metallic conduit systems
  • Non-metallic conduit systems

Electrical Conduit Systems Market

The metallic conduit systems segment dominated the global electrical conduit systems market in 2014. The segmented contributed more than fifty percent of the total revenue. The metallic conduit systems segment comprises various materials such as galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminum among others. Common types of metallic conduit systems include rigid metallic conduit systems (RMC), electrical metallic tubing (EMT), intermediate metallic conduit (IMC), PVC-coated metallic conduit systems and flexible metallic conduit systems. Galvanized steel and stainless steel are among the costliest materials used in conduit systems. These are largely used in the industrial manufacturing, oil & gas and energy & utilities segment to ensure optimum safety. Due to their high cost and superior protection advantages, the segment becomes highly profitable for conduit system manufacturers.

The non-metallic conduit systems segment includes materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), nylon, high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and others. These conduit systems offer fairly high physical protection and are resistant to most of the environmental hazards such as chemical reactions, humidity and corrosion. These are among the cheapest and most convenient materials used in conduit systems. Due to their light weight, these conduit systems can be easily transported, handled and offer convenient installation. Hence, these conduit systems help reducing the overall installation cost. Due to these factors non-metallic conduit systems segment is expected to register the highest growth in the coming years.

Electrical conduit system refers to a tubular enclosure used for protecting and routing electrical cables. The entire system comprises tubing and fitting components required for wiring installation. Most of the electrical conduit systems used are rigid due to their high strength over flexible conduit systems. Electrical conduit systems offer excellent protection to the enclosed cables/wires from different external parameters such as moisture, impact and chemical reactions. Also, electrical conduits are capable of carrying large number of cables. Depending upon the number of cables to be routed, electrical conduits with wider diameter are available in market making these preferable over traditional types of wiring systems. The common types of electrical conduit systems are listed below:

  • Rigid Metal Conduit (RMC)/Galvanized Steel Rigid Conduit (GRC)
  • Intermediate Metallic Conduit (IMC)
  • Electrical Metallic Tubing (EMT)
  • PVC Conduit
  • PVC-coated Metallic Conduit
  • Flexible Metallic Conduit
  • Flexible Non-metallic Conduit

The history of electrical conduit systems date back to the early 1900s. Traditionally, fluid pipes and gas pipes were used for wiring installation. Due better protection offered by these tubular enclosures, development of electrical conduits specifically for wiring installation became popular. Steel electrical conduit systems are among the first types of conduits used for wiring installation. With growing adoption of conduit systems in wiring installation, other materials such as galvanized steel, aluminium and coated steel. Due to their high strength and corrosion resistance, galvanized steel has become the most popular material for conduit systems in industrial environments. Further, with increasing penetration of conduit systems coupled with need for cost reduction, the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) became the most preferred material for conduit production. Over the course of time, PVC has become the dominant material, in terms of penetration, in the overall conduit systems market. This is majorly due to their low cost, good strength and resistance to corrosion and chemical reactions. Due to these properties, PVC conduit systems have become the largest used material in residential and commercial construction applications.

With advancement of conduit systems coupled with need for flexible wiring installation, flexible conduit systems were developed. Non-metallic materials such as PVC, nylon, high definition polyethylene (HDPE) are by far the most popular materials used in flexible conduit systems. Flexible conduit systems are used where there is frequent need for wiring alteration and in critical spaces. These conduit systems offer excellent strength and ease of installation especially in the case of underground wiring. Due to these factors, the flexible conduit systems have witnessed strong penetration over the period of time.

Electrical conduit systems are used in various end-use industries such as industrial manufacturing, commercial construction, public infrastructure, residential construction, oil & gas and others. Residential construction segment is by far the largest consumer, in terms of revenue, of the electrical conduit systems. Due to rising population worldwide coupled with the construction industry, the segment is expected to remain the dominant consumer in the coming years. Nevertheless, major concern for the market is availability of large number of substitutes. Major substitutes for electrical conduit systems are cable trays, cable ladders, raceways and others.
