Worldwide the demand for plastic pipes is projected to grow > 5% per annum through 2019 to about 20 million KM from the current size of about 14 million KM. Construction applications make up the largest share of plastic pipes demand. Although construction spending is reportedly decelerating in China, the world’s largest plastic pipe market, plastic pipe demand in the country is still projected to rise by about 9% annually. Due to the ongoing efforts to expand the access to potable water and sanitation systems, the growth in plastic pipe demand is also expected to be robust in many developing countries. Technological advancements and improvements in polymer resins have caused an increase in share of plastic pipes in sectors including telecom, energy and industry.As far as India is concerned, plastic pipes is a well-established product since the first installation of PVC pipes in 1960s. The sector has grown substantially in last 5 decades and has reached the size of ~ 2.5 MMT. Their acceptance is increasing due to the long term performance, ease of installation and the awareness towards the ‘life cycle cost’ concept. Nationwide infrastructure development, rapidly increasing urbanization, Government’s focus on irrigation and the ‘make in India’ drive are some of the major factors facilitating the growth of plastic pipe industry in the country Alexander Krah will present the newest developments in large plastic pipe systems.
