Demand in length for large diameter pipe in China will grow 8.8 percent annually through 2009 based on continued rapid economic growth and public infrastructure expansion. Drainage, potable water distribution and sewer applications will lead gains, while concrete and plastic will be the fastest growing large diameter pipe materials.
This study analyzes the 32 billion Chinese large diameter pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for 1994, 1999 and 2004 and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 by market (e.g., drainage, storm sewers, natural gas, water distribution, district heating, petroleum, sanitary sewers, process industries, irrigation), by material (e.g., concrete, steel, plastic, cast iron), and by Chinese geographic region.
The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, evaluates company market share, and profiles 44 major producers including Xinxing Ductile Iron Pipes, Shandong Electric Power, Kingland Group, Panyu Chu Kong Steel Pipe, Jinhua Julong Pipe, Ginde Plastic Pipe Industry Group, and North China Petroleum Steel.
