Plastic & Competitive Pipe

As Quoted In European Plastics News

US demand for pipe is forecast to advance 6.6 percent annually through 2015. Gains will be driven in part by a rebound in construction activity and an improved outlook for state and municipal infrastructure spending. PVC and other plastic pipe will be the fastest-growing pipe material, while steel pipe will remain the leading material.

This study analyzes the $28.1 billion US pipe industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by market (e.g., oil and natural gas; sewer and drainage; potable water; industrial processing; conduit; drain, waste and vent; irrigation) and material (e.g., steel, PVC, HDPE, ABS, copper, concrete, ductile iron).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 53 industry participants, including JM Eagle, Advanced Drainage Systems and Performance Pipe.
