Plastic & Competitive Pipe

As Quoted In Flow Control Network

US demand for plastic and competitive pipe will reach 11.1 billion feet in 2013, stimulated in part by needs to upgrade sewer, drainage and municipal water systems. Plastic pipe will grow at the fastest pace, with PVC remaining the dominant resin. The construction and energy sectors offer the best market opportunities.

This study analyzes the US pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by market (e.g., potable water; conduit; natural gas and oil; drain and sewer; drain, waste and vent; drainage and irrigation; process), material (e.g., concrete, steel, plastic, cast iron, copper, aluminum) and plastic resin (e.g., PVC, HDPE, reinforced thermoset, ABS).

The study also considers market environment trends and indicators, evaluates company market share and profiles 54 selected industry participants, including JM Eagle, Advanced Drainage Systems and North American Pipe.
