France PVC Pipes Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1999


Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a synthetic plastic polymer which is available in a powdered form. The material can be stored for a longer period of time as it is degradation and oxidation resistant. PVC is added with several pigments and additives for the production of various products such as toys and pipes among other household products. PVC pipes are durable, recyclable, easy to install, lightweight and exhibits high chemical resistance owing to which they are increasingly being used in the place of metal pipes. In addition to this, these pipes are suitable to be used for electrification purposes on account of their heat and electrical insulation properties. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “France PVC Pipes Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the PVC Pipes market in France reached a volume of 130,255 Tons in 2017.

There has been a significant rise in foreign investments across the region which has strengthened the construction sector, thereby driving the growth of the PVC pipes market in France. Additionally, the development of new technologies in pipe manufacturing has enhanced the conventional piping systems. These technologies have helped in increasing the pipe diameter and in making modifications in pipe thickness which have resulted in enabling the pipe to withstand differential internal pressure. Moreover, the demand for PVC pipes has increased in the plumbing sector as they offer numerous performance benefits such as easy maintenance and installation costs. Looking forward, the France PVC pipes market is projected to reach 172,837 Tons by 2023, registering a CAGR of 4.81% during 2018-2023.
