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

The Plastic Tubes, Pipes and Fittings Market Experienced Strong Growth Over the Last Year

In 2017, the plastic tubes, pipes and fittings market reached ••• tonnes. From 2007 to 2017, it expanded by an average annual rate of +•••(IndexBox estimates). Despite minor fluctuations being observed in certain years, the consumption of plastic tubes, pipes and fittings increased steadily, following a period of pronounced decline in 2009. In wholesale prices, the market surged by •••% over the last year, amounting to $••• in 2017. However, the most prominent growth over the last decade was observed in 2011 (+•••% against the 2010 figure).

China Currently Occupies •••% of the Global Plastic Tubes, Pipes and Fittings Market

The country with the highest consumption of plastic tubes, pipes and fittings was China (••• tonnes), followed, somewhat lagging behind, by India (••• tonnes), the U.S. (••• tonnes), Turkey (••• tonnes), Germany (••• tonnes), Brazil (••• tonnes), Russia (••• tonnes) and Italy (••• tonnes), together comprising approx. •••% of global consumption. 

The highest annual rates of growth with regard to plastic tubes, pipes and fittings consumption from 2007 to 2017 were recorded in Turkey, with a +•••% growth and China, with a +•••% growth, respectively. By contrast, Italy (-•••%) and the U.S. (-•••%) decreased their consumption of plastic tubes, pipes and fittings over the same period.

The Global Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market is Set to Achieve Moderate Expansion

Plastic pipe fittings are classed as complementary products for plastic pipes, since they connect pipes in both engineering networks and industrial equipment. Therefore, in the medium term, the growth of the world economy and population growth, as well as the process of rapid urbanization in Asian countries will remain the main factors in terms of market growth. These factors promote the development of a number of industries, such as the food and beverage industry, the chemical and petrochemical industry etc., which leads to increased consumption of technological systems and equipment, as well as engineering systems with regard to buildings and structures, including plastic pipes and fittings. 

Pipes are largely used to convey and transport essential and important liquids and gaseous materials over long distances; various external and climatic factors, combined with continuous use, mean that the pipes are liable to surface deterioration and corrosion over time. The replacement of worn-out pipes is a compulsory requirement in many industry sectors and this has been gaining momentum recently, as proven in the U.S.: the gas distribution companies in the United States are currently replacing worn-out pipes with new high strength, high-grade plastic piping systems. New contemporary PVC pipes are now being introduced into the oil and gas sector to replace the cast and wrought iron pipes used previously. The growth in demand for pipes from the construction industry will act as the main contributor to the further expansion of the market. Considering all of the above, the projected market volume will be determined by the growth dynamics of the global economy in general.

In the long term, robust construction sector growth is forecast in China, against strong economic growth, continuing urbanization and major investment projects. In India, construction activity is also projected to increase, due to enhanced investment from the state and private sectors in infrastructure development. 

According to the IMF forecast, the growth of the world economy will reach approx. •••% in the medium term. The critical impetus for growth is to come from emerging Asian countries, where industry will develop, against rapid economic development and further increases in the income of the population, thereby creating a stable base for the increased consumption of various goods. In addition, the resumed growth of oil production in the United States will also contribute to this economic expansion.  

Driven by global economic growth, the performance of the market is forecast to accelerate, expanding with an anticipated CAGR of +•••% for the eight-year period from 2017 to •••, which is then projected to bring the market volume to ••• tonnes by the end of •••.

China, Spain and Turkey Currently Appear as the Most Promising Suppliers of Tubes, Pipes and Fittings

China, India, Turkey, Germany and Brazil all constitute major producers of plastic tubes, pipes and fittings to increase their output. In terms of the key exporting countries, China saw its volume of exports increase: Chinese export supplies surged at a rate of +•••% a year, while other major suppliers recorded a more moderate rate of growth with regard to exports - Italy (+•••%), Turkey (+•••%), Poland (+•••%) and Spain (+•••%). Spain ($••• per tonne), Turkey ($••• per tonne) and Malaysia ($••• per tonne) recorded the lowest and currently falling export prices. Export prices in China ($••• per tonne) also currently remain low, but are rising at an average rate of +•••% a year.

In view of the above, China, Spain, and Turkey can be considered as the most promising supplier countries in terms of plastic tubes, pipes and fittings.

France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Poland Currently Appear as the Most Attractive Importers of Tubes, Pipes and Fittings.
