Plastic Pipe: Global Markets

Plastic Pipe: Global Markets

The global market for plastic pipe/tubing reached nearly $56.8 billion in 2016 and should reach nearly $72.3 billion by 2021, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%.

Report Includes
An overview of the global markets for plastic pipe.
Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2015 and 2016, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2021.
A look at the materials used in the industry ranging from inorganic clays and concrete to iron and steel, and to commodity and specialty polymers
A look at how plastic pipe relates to industries such as building/construction (covering uses ranging from water transmission to sewers and storm drain pipes); petroleum service pipe (both “upstream” and “downstream”); machinery, process and other equipment; electronics and telecommunications; mechanical and structural uses; and specialty and other uses.
Technologies involved with sections covering the manufacture and technology for each major piping material.
Profiles of major players in the industry.

Report Scope
This study provides in-depth coverage of many of the most important economic, technological, political, regulatory and environmental considerations involving domestic markets for the production and use of materials and equipment in the plastic pipe and tubing industries. Pipes and tubes are made from materials ranging from inorganic clays and concrete to iron and steel, and to commodity and specialty polymers. This study focuses on plastic pipe and tubing, with reference in many places to older competing materials.
 
This report includes key technologies (and new technologies), the markets and some key companies that make up the plastic pipe and tubing industry, and all of their ramifications.

Demands are estimated for the base period of 2015 and 2016, and forecast for five years through 2021. All market volume figures usually are rounded to the nearest million pounds. All five-year growth rates are compounded, and signified as compounded annual growth rates (CAGRs). The estimates are based on manufacturers’ total revenues. Because of this rounding, some growth rates may not agree exactly with figures in the market tables, especially for differences in small volumes.
