Saudi Arabia PE Pipes Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

Polyethylene (PE) is a highly crystalline non-polar thermoplastic generated through the polymerization of ethylene. It can be easily melted and reshaped in different product ranging from bags, bottles, and pipes to medical devices and bulletproof vests. PE pipes are durable, flexible, resistant to biological growth and do not rust or corrode. Additionally, a wide range of piping applications in Saudi Arabia, such as supplying water for drinking and irrigation, serving as telecom ducts, and sewerage and sewage disposal, have resulted in a high demand for PE pipes in the country. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, “Saudi Arabia PE Pipes Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the Saudi Arabia PE pipes market reached a volume of 28,881 Tons in 2017.

PE pipes are extensively used in the distribution of oil and natural gas as these pipes are inherently tough, resilient and resistant to damage caused by external loads and vibrations. This is expected to spur the growth of the market as Saudi Arabia has an abundance of oil, natural gas and minerals. Additionally, these pipes are used in desalinating sea-water, treating wastewater and supplying water for irrigation. This is further projected to influence the growth of the market. Some of the other factors that are propelling the demand for polyethylene as a piping material are its eco-friendly nature, easy installation process, lower maintenance cost and longer service life. Further, the market is expected to reach a volume of 40,737 Tons by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.9% during 2018-2023.
