Global demand for plastic pipe is forecast to increase 6.2% annually through 2017 to 23 million metric tons. Construction-related pipe applications will drive growth, says the World Plastic Pipe Market report.
Across all years polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the leader, accounting for 55% of all plastic pipe demand. However, high density polyethylene (HDPE) is expected to take market share away from PVC in potable water distribution applications as cross- linked polyethylene (PEX) becomes more common in many regional markets.
Demand gains in terms of weight will benefit from plastics’ increased acceptance in larger diameters. The majority of large diameter plastic pipe is found in infrastructure applications, such as potable water transmission and sewer and drainage networks. In many developed countries, decaying infrastructures will drive sales gains. As replacement activity picks up, many countries will utilize plastic pipe primarily because of its lower costs and ease of installation.
