Plastic Pipe: United States

This report forecasts US plastic pipe demand in metric tons and meters to 2019. Total demand in metric tons is segmented by resin in terms of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and other resins. Total demand in meters is segmented by market as follows: construction, energy, and other markets.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand in both metric tons and meters is provided in an annual series from 2004 to 2014; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2009 and 2014. A Market Environment section provides pertinent background on historical trends, key economic indicators, competitive materials, environmental and regulatory factors, and trends in NAFTA demand. A Segmentation and Forecasts section defines resins and markets, discusses market drivers and constraints, identifies substitute products when applicable, and assesses the impact of key drivers and constraints on each resin and market segment over the forecast period.

Further analysis includes an Industry Structure section, which surveys the supply base and profiles the leading firms competing to serve US demand. A one-page, introductory Highlights section summarizes key findings from this 24-page report, and a Resources section lists contributing sources as well as resources available for further research.
