PVC Pipe Market Demand will Continue to Increase in the Future
- Dec 07, 2018 -

PVC pipes have been well received by the engineering community for their light weight, corrosion resistance, high compressive strength, safety and convenience. In recent years, driven by the rapid development of the domestic economy, China's PVC pipelines have developed rapidly.

According to analysts of Shangpu Consulting Building Materials Industry, PVC pipe production accounted for 55% of the total in 2010, supported by PVC's complete supporting industrial chain and domestic raw materials. In recent years, the PVC pipe market has been affected by various factors and its market share has been declining. The PVC pipe market share decline mainly has three major aspects:

First, the PVC pipe market was impacted by PE, PPR and other plastic pipes, and was seized a certain market share;

Second, the ban of lead-containing stabilizers in PVC pipes in contact with food products has a certain negative impact on the development of PVC pipes;

The third is: At present, the development of PVC pipeline is in a period of rapid development, and the production capacity of the industry is expanding. Many small and medium-sized enterprises are trying to seize the market and reduce costs. A large amount of calcium carbonate is filled in the formula, which is sub-filled and affects the image of the entire PVC pipeline industry. It directly affected the market share of PVC and accelerated the loss of PVC market share.

But overall, although the PVC pipe share is decreasing, it still dominates the plastic pipe market. And the attractive prospect of the plastic pipe industry is still a major highlight of the development of the PVC pipe industry.

According to the “2011-2016 China Chemical Pipeline Market Analysis and Investment Strategy Research Report” released by Shangpu Consulting, at present, the processing capacity of domestic PVC pipe small and medium-sized enterprises is mainly concentrated in PVC drainage pipes. During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, housing construction and municipal projects still provide stable domestic demand, which will drive the market demand for PVC drainage pipes to grow. In the future, the demand for PVC pipe market will continue to grow due to construction demand, especially in the completion of a large number of affordable housing construction. However, it is worth noting that PVC pipeline enterprises should also adjust the product structure in light of the actual situation, and develop building materials products that meet market demand with environmental protection and quality as the core focus, so as to be in an invincible position in the plastic pipe market.
