World Plastic Pipe

World Plastic Pipe

Global demand for plastic pipe will advance to 19.3 billion meters in 2019 on growth of 6.7 percent per year. Rising construction spending across most world regions will drive growth. Improvements in technology and plastic resins will also boost growth, allowing plastic pipe to take market share from metal and other materials in energy and industrial applications. Plastic’s lighter weight and resistance to corrosion will support demand.

Asia/Pacific Will Remain Largest Region
The Asia/Pacific region, already the largest consumer of plastic pipe in 2014, will see the fastest growth of any region, led by the large India and China markets. North America will also see strong gains, driven by an ongoing recovery in construction spending as well as increasing use of plastic pipe in energy applications.

Strong Advances in HDPE pipe
Among resins, HDPE will see the strongest growth through 2019, driven by the its use in energy applications, as well as increasing use of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe in construction applications. PVC will remain the most popular resin through the forecast period.

Leading Suppliers
The plastic pipe market is fragmented, with no company holding a very large share of the market. While some plastic pipe manufacturers focus exclusively on niche pipe markets, others offer pipe as part of a range of building, plumbing, or plastic products. Significant manufacturers active in the industry include Advance Drainage Systems, Aliaxis, China Lesso, Formosa Plastics, Future Pipe, Ginde Plastic Pipe, JM Eagle, Mexi-chem, Sekisui Chemical, and Tigre SA Tubos e Conexoes.
