Calibration Tubes Market: Overview
Calibration tubes are used for rehabilitation of non-accessible sewer lines. Calibration tube is also known as cal tube, calibration hose and balloon. The Calibration tube is a non-extensible and reinforced tube. Primarily, the tube is used to keep the liner inflated until cured, once cured, the tube discarded. By placing the tube in the manhole during the relining process, liner expansion can be avoided. The Calibration tube is inserted till a non-accessible point during the double liner method. Firstly a liner (not closed at both ends) is inserted and positioned in the sewer. Then the Calibration tube (closed at one end) is inserted into the liner and inflated so the liner gets fixed to the pipe tightly. This method for relining is useful in cases where house connections are not accessible via a manhole. In case of tube failure, some safety measures are to be taken. Used tubes can also be put to use. They can be used as guide tubes and pre-liners. The calibration tube can be used for several other jobs as well.
Calibration Tubes Market: Dynamics
The key factor driving the global calibration tubes market is steady gains in construction spending across the globe particularly in regions such as North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. Government investments and the residential construction market directly affect the pipeline rehabilitation industry's performance. Globally, the rehabilitation market has a low level of concentration which makes it fragmented. Governments all around the globe are promoting home for all concept resulting in lower interest rates especially in developing countries, expanding the construction market. The driving factor for developed countries will be replacement and maintenance of old sewer lines which were installed more than 50 years ago.
In the time of recession, due to constrained local and state budgets and a major drop in residential construction, the industry might face the decline in revenues.
