IndexBox has just published a new report "World - Plastic Tubes, Pipes And Hoses, And Fitting Therefor - Market Analysis, Forecast, Size, Trends and Insights". Here is a summary of the report’s key findings

Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market in Latin America Continued to Decline

In 2017, the volume of the plastic tubes, pipes and fittings consumption in Latin America stood at approx. ••• tonnes. After a noticeable growth in 2008, the volume of consumption dropped dramatically the next year, continuing to grow moderately over the next three years (IndexBox estimates). It was until it slipped back again in 2013 with a further decline through to 2017. The reduction in recent years was due to a slump in oil drilling projects hampered by low oil prices and a subsequent slowdown of the economy of Latin America. In value terms, the market stood at $••• in 2017, which was almost •••% less than the year before.

Brazil Consumed Alone •••% of Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market in Latin America

In 2017, the leading consuming markets were Brazil (•••% of total consumption), distantly followed by Mexico (•••%), Argentina (•••%), Colombia (•••%), Ecuador (•••%), Guatemala (•••%) and Costa Rica (•••%).

From 2007 to 2017, plastic tubes, pipes and fittings consumption In Latin America annually grew by a healthy +•••%. The highest annual growth rates of product consumption from 2007 to 2017 were recorded in Ecuador, with +•••% growth. Colombia (+•••%), Brazil (+•••%) and Argentina (+•••%) experienced more modest paces of growth, while Mexico reduced it by an average -•••% per year.

The Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market Is Set to Achieve Moderate Expansion

Plastic tubes, pipes and fittings constitute are currently widely used in the construction, agriculture and industrial sectors to convey drinking and wastewater, as well as chemicals, heating and cooling fluids, foodstuffs and vacuum system applications. Therefore, the market development is commonly conditioned by an overall economic performance; the growth of a country's GDP, accordingly, acts as an indicator of the dynamic of plastic pipe markets.

According to the IMF forecast, the economy of the Latin American region continues to recover from the decline in 2015–2016, when many oil-producing countries in the region suffered from falling oil prices. In subsequent years, growth is forecast to accelerate to •••% in 2019 and •••% in •••, which is expected to be primarily due to increased private consumption, as well as a gradual recovery in investment activity in the largest economies – Brazil and Mexico. On the other hand, the growth of the regional economy is subject to significant risks, such as financial instability (which is especially true for large oil exporters), the growth of public debt in the Caribbean, weak labour productivity, and political uncertainty. All these factors will hold back growth prospects for the region’s economy.

In the medium term, the recovery of the economy of the Latin American region will remain the main factor to stimulate further market growth: this will promote construction and agriculture. The enhanced creation of drinking water and sanitation systems will also encourage the further growth of the plastic pipes market. Furthermore, any further improvement of the oil market will also contribute, the plastic pipe market growth, as oil and gas and mining companies, are now considering the increased use of special plastic pipework systems as a contemporary alternative to steel pipes, in a bid to enforce potential cost-cutting measures.Driven by the economic recovery in the region, which stimulate growth in construction and agriculture, the market of plastic tubes, pipes and fittings is expected to begin an upward consumption trend over the next eight years. The performance of the market is forecast to increase slightly with an anticipated CAGR of +•••% for the eight-year period from 2017 to •••, which is projected to bring the market volume to ••• tonnes by the end of •••.
