Demanding Construction Site: Current Ceresana Report on the European Market for Plastic Pipes

01-27-2023 03:04 PM CET | Industry, Real Estate & Construction

Press release from: CERESANA

Profiting from climate change and the energy crisis? Pipe manufacturers are certainly not short of tasks: Whether cities are preparing their infrastructure for more frequent heavy rainfall, new wind farms or heat pumps are being connected, networks for district heating and cooling are being built - many current construction projects require the installation or expansion of pipelines. Ceresana has already analyzed the European market for plastic pipes for the sixth time and estimates the demand volume for the year 2021 at approx. 5.01 million tonnes.

Challenges for the construction industry

Plastics are increasingly replacing more traditional materials such as steel and concrete for pipes in the construction industry. The comparatively inexpensive but robust pipes made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are mainly used for wastewater and cable protection. Increasingly, other types of plastic are also gaining market share: In drinking water supply, pipes based on polypropylene and polyethylene are competing with PVC pipes. Polypropylene and polyethylene pipes are already widely used in industrial applications and gas supply. However, the construction industry in Europe is now facing a difficult year in 2023: the rapidly rising cost of construction materials is hampering development. The market researchers at Ceresana do not expect a slight reversal of the trend until 2024 at the earliest.

Pipes for broadband cables and irrigation

Products for agriculture are among the areas of application for plastic pipes that are currently developing most dynamically. Droughts and long dry spells are becoming more frequent. Efficient irrigation systems with sensor technology and easy-to-maintain plastic pipes can at least reduce losses for agriculture and horticulture. Ceresana forecasts that the increase in extreme weather phenomena will increase demand for plastic pipes for irrigating agricultural land in Europe by around 1.2% per year. However, the fastest-growing area of application for pipes is cable protection: digitization and the expansion of fiber optic networks make it necessary for expensive broadband cables to be shielded against harmful environmental influences with plastic pipe casings.

Industry analysis and market data on plastic pipes

Chapter 1 provides an in-depth analysis of the European market for plastic pipes - including forecasts up to 2031. Key figures are given for revenues and demand, both broken down by plastic grades and areas of application. Chapter 2 provides specific market data on plastic pipes for 24 European countries: Revenues, import and export, production and demand volumes are given. The data on production and demand are broken down into the plastic types: Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other plastics. In addition, demand is presented for each country broken down into the various application areas: Wastewater disposal, Potable water supply, Cable protection, Gas piping, Agriculture, Industry and other applications. Chapter 3 provides company profiles of the most important plastic pipe manufacturers in Europe, clearly arranged by contact details, revenues, profits, product range, production facilities and brief profile. Detailed profiles are provided by 73 most important producers, such as Aalberts Industries N.V., Aliaxis S.A., Fränkische Rohrwerke Gebr. Kirchner GmbH & Co. KG, Geberit AG, Georg Fischer AG, Pipelife International GmbH, Polyplastic Group, REHAU AG + Co, Tessenderlo Group, Uponor Corporation, and Wavin N.V.

Stretching towards success: Plastic films get stronger and more transparent if they are stretched longitudinally and crosswise during production. The "biaxially oriented" plastics polypropylene (BOPP), polyethylene (BOPE) and polyester (BOPET) are processed into packaging, bags and sacks, shrink and stretch films, but also, for example, agricultural films, insulation material and industrial films. According to the latest Ceresana study on the global market for flexible plastic films, which is already the

Cutting-edge technology from the field : Polylactic acid, or PLA for short, is one of the most important raw materials for 3D printing but also for medical sewing thread and implants. Less spectacular but strongly growing areas of application for this bioplastic are viewing windows of bread bags and other packaging materials. The new Ceresana market study "Polylactic Acid (PLA)" forecasts that PLA sales will reach around USD 3.7 billion
Biopolymers Are Flourishing: Ceresana Examines the Global Market for Bioplastics
For some time now, bioplastics have been used for more than just garbage bags or mulch films: Biopolymers are increasingly found in durable high-performance products, for example in demanding automotive applications, casings for the electronics industry or materials for the construction industry. Biodegradability is often an advantage, for example for packaging films, disposable tableware or medical implants. By now, however, "bio" versions are available for virtually all types and applications
