PVC Pipes Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024
The global PVC pipes market reached a volume of 22.8 Million Tons in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2011-2018. The market is further projected to reach a volume of 30.5 Million Tons by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 4.9% during 2019-2024. PVC pipes are composed by the extrusion of a blend of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and several additives. The production of PVC pipes consumes around four times lesser energy and incurs lower losses of the raw material in comparison to concrete pipes. Moreover, complete recyclability of PVC makes the environmental footprint of these pipes far smaller than the alternative piping materials. Owing to these factors, PVC pipes find applications in water systems, underground wiring and sewer lines.
Global PVC Pipes Market Drivers/Constraints:
PVC pipes have gained popularity across the globe owing to their favourable properties such as light-weight, cost-effectiveness, easy installation and durability. Apart from this, their excellent heat and electrical insulation properties have led to their usage in electrical fittings.
These pipes do no rot, wear or rust over time and can withstand rigorous shaking and extreme movement in earthquake-prone zones. Owing to these factors, PVC pipes are continuously replacing other piping materials across the world.
The introduction of new technology applying molecular orientation in the PVC pipes manufacturing has resulted into the development of PVC-O (oriented) pipes. These pipes are more environment-friendly, cost-effective and have enhanced physical and mechanical properties than conventionally produced PVC pipes.
Availability of the substitutes of PVC pipes such as steel, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pose a major threat to the profitability of the PVC pipes manufactueres, in turn, deterring the market growth.
On the basis of application, the market has been segmented into irrigation, water supply, sewerage, plumbing, HVAC, and oil and gas. Currently, the irrigation segment dominates the market, holding the largest market share.
Region-wise, Asia enjoys the leading position in the global PVC pipes market. Other major regions include North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.
