Plastic Pipe & Parts Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Plastic Pipe & Parts Manufacturing in Canada

The Plastic Pipe and Parts Manufacturing industry in Canada has grown inconsistently during the reporting period, due to waning demand throughout downstream housing industries that typically purchase plastic materials for new construction projects. Plastic pipes and parts are frequently used among residential construction companies for home plumbing and water systems, agriculture operators for water distribution and irrigation, car and automobile manufacturers for interior parts and designs and municipal governments for replacing antiquated, metal-based plumbing and sewage systems with durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC) piping systems. The biggest concern for the industry, in terms of downstream demand, has come from residential construction. Material costs represent a perennial danger to the profit margins of industry manufacturers. Any sudden increases in material input costs is expected to encourage the industry to intensify its recent reductions in employment and wages per employee.

This industry manufactures a range of plastic pipes, plastic fittings, unlaminated plastic shapes and other plastic rods, tubes, plates and car parts. Industry operators do not manufacture plastic hose fixtures, plastic plumbing fixtures or plastic packaging.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
