The world pipe market is projected to expand 7.3 percent annually through 2015. Demand in China, the world's largest consumer of pipe, will slow to a more average pace while advances in North America and Europe accelerate with their overall economic recovery. HDPE and smaller-volume plastic pipe products will outpace PVC.
This study analyzes the 15.8 billion meter global plastic pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2015, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by resin (e.g., PVC, HPDE), world region and for 39 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry participants, including JM EAGLE, China Liansu and Wavin.
