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

$ 1499




The global PVC pipes market reached a volume of 21.6 Million Tons in 2017, growing at a CAGR of around 5% during 2010-2017. The market is further projected to reach a volume of nearly 29 Million Tons by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of 5% during 2018-2023. PVC pipes are composed by the extrusion of a blend of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and several additives. The production of PVC pipes consumes around four times lesser energy and incurs lower losses of the raw material in comparison to concrete pipes. Moreover, complete recyclability of PVC makes the environmental footprint of these pipes far smaller than the alternative piping materials. Owing to these factors, PVC pipes find applications in water systems, underground wiring and sewer lines.

Global PVC Pipes Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • PVC pipes have gained popularity across the globe owing to their favourable properties such as light-weight, cost-effectiveness, easy installation and durability. Apart from this, their excellent heat and electrical insulation properties have led to their usage in electrical fittings.
  • These pipes do no rot, wear or rust over time and can withstand rigorous shaking and extreme movement in earthquake-prone zones. Owing to these factors, PVC pipes are continuously replacing other piping materials across the world.
  • The introduction of new technology applying molecular orientation in the PVC pipes manufacturing has resulted into the development of PVC-O (oriented) pipes. These pipes are more environment-friendly, cost-effective and have enhanced physical and mechanical properties than conventionally produced PVC pipes.
  • Availability of the substitutes of PVC pipes such as steel, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and cross-liked polyethylene (PEX) pose a major threat to the profitability of the PVC pipes manufactueres, in turn, deterring the market growth.
