Many countries in the world, even they usually have the metric system, use inch for plumbing pipes, tubes and hoses, fittings, adapters, drains and faucets. In some countries like the Philippines, they sell 63mm pipes as 2" pipes and 40mm pipes as 1 1/4"... whereas the 1" pipes are 25mm (maybe I don't understand their system, but I have always to bring a sample, to get the correct size).
Inches (German: 'zoll') are also used as a unit for monitors and tv's, also for printing resolution like DPI (dots per inch), musical instruments any many things more - as said before, even in countries, what have the metric system.
If you want to convert also feet, meters, yards go to meter.cm or centimeter.cm.
