According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Portugal PVC Pipes Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the Portugal PVC pipes market reached a volume of XX Tons in 2017. The Portuguese plastic industry is one of the most influential sectors of the country’s economy. Over the last few years, the demand for PVC pipes in the country has escalated as these pipes are cost efficient, superior than most of their plastic and metal counterparts and are available in various grades. PVC pipes also have a smooth internal wall surface and resistance to abrasion while their hydraulic smoothness inhibits slime build-up and virtually eliminates tuberculation and encrustation. Owing to these properties these are widely used for sewage applications. Apart from this, due to considerable savings in raw materials and easy installation offered by PVC pipes, they are highly energy-efficient and environment-friendly in nature.
PVC pipes are stronger and more rigid than most other thermoplastic pipes with relatively high mechanical and tensile strength and elasticity module. They also have high heat deflection temperature and chemical resistance, owing to which they are increasingly being used in chemical labs and production facilities for transferring water, wastewater and chemicals. Moreover, the revival of the construction industry, supported by the improving economic growth, has created a huge demand for PVC pipes in Portugal. The Government has also introduced schemes such as the Programa Especial de Realojamento to encourage the construction of affordable housing. PVC pipes are also finding use in water distribution applications as they help in conserving water and energy by creating leak-free piping networks. Moreover, the breakage rate of PVC pipes is significantly lower than their cast metal counterparts. As a result of these factors, the market is projected to reach a volume of XX Tons by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of XX % during 2018-2023.
