World Plastic Pipe to 2017 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

Global demand for plastic pipe is projected to rise 8.5 percent annually through 2017 to 11.2 billion meters. Construction related applications will drive growth in all global regions, with North America and the Asia/Pacific region leading gains. HDPE pipe will take market share from dominant PVC pipe in a variety of construction uses.

This study analyzes the 7.5 billion meter world plastic pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by market (e.g., residential construction, nonresidential construction, nonbuilding construction), resin (e.g., PVC, HDPE), world region, and for 24 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry competitors such as Mexichem, JM Eagle, and Sekisui Chemical.
