Global plastic pipe market to total $80bn by 2019


The competitive advantages of plastic pipes mean that the global market will be worth $80bn (€61.7bn) by 2019, according to new market research.
“Pipes made from plastics have advantages compared to pipes made from other materials such as aluminum, concrete, cast iron, copper, and steel,” says the report from Ceresana.
PVC is still the most popular plastic within the pipes industry, with an estimated market share of more than 55%. The second most popular type is polyethylene, particularly HDPE, which takes up between 28 and 45% of the market.
However, the type of material used varies between applications. PVC pipes are used mainly in sewage, water and cable protection systems, while PP and PE materials are used extensively in gas pipes.
Polybutylene, polyamide and acrylonitrilebutadiene- styrene are becoming more widespread and are often used in specialty applications such as compressed air systems.
The major sales markets are Asia-Pacific, accounting for 50% of global demand, followed by North America then western Europe. Ceresana expects Asia-Pacific will increase its share of the global whole to more than 60% by 2019.
