Polyolefin Pipe Market Sales to reach USD 27.14 billion by 2029, Rising Demand for Pipes in The Irrigation and Building & Construction Industry Is the Driving Factor of the Market Growth: Exactitude Consultancy

·8 min read

Increasing demand for metallocene-based PO, and increasing demand for metallocene-based LLDPE will bring new growth opportunities for the Polyolefin Pipe Market. The major challenges faced by the market include climatic challenges to maintain pipes, fluctuation in raw material prices, and difficulties in large-scale manufacturing of PO pipes.

Luton, Bedfordshire, United Kingdom, Sept. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exactitude Consultancy, the market research and consulting wing of Ameliorate Digital Consultancy Private Limited has completed and published the final copy of the detailed research report on the Polyolefin Pipe market.

The global Polyolefin Pipe Market size is projected to reach USD 27.14 billion by 2029 at a CAGR of 5.2% from USD 17.2 billion in 2021.

Polyolefins seem to be water-resistant and durable, so they last longer when exposed to the weather than other polymers. They are excellent electrical insulators, and they can become electrostatically charged. It becomes almost transparent to smudge-proof and determines the thickness of the polyolefins. Low-density polyolefins are suitable for wrapping applications due to their clarity. Polyolefins, such as HDPE, can be recycled and reused, which is less expensive than creating a new product from new plastic. Its high heat resistance can be used in both high temperatures and low.

APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing Polyolefin Pipe Market during the forecast period

Among China, Japan, South Korea, India, and Rest of APAC, China was the largest consumer of polyolefin pipe in the region as of 2020 in terms of value as well as volume. Low cost of raw materials as well as their ease of availability, along with the low cost of establishing production facilities are some of the major factors driving the Polyolefin Pipe Market in the region.

Building & construction segment is estimated to be the largest end-use industry

In the building & construction industry, pipes and fitting materials play an important role in performing the task of conveying fluids. Materials used for manufacturing pipes depend upon the type of fluid and the conditions under which they are conveyed. Fluids can be hazardous, reactive, volatile, corrosive, or flammable. The integrity of fluids is required to be maintained when they are conveyed under process conditions such as different temperatures and pressures and hence require pipe materials suitable for conveyance under such conditions.

Industrial application is projected to be the fastest-growing market for polyolefin pipes during the forecast period.

Polyolefin pipes are widely used in industrial applications wherein piping systems are exposed to harsh and extreme climatic conditions. Due to the flexible nature of PE, it expands with pressure surges, which increases the life of the pipeline and reduces maintenance costs.

Polyolefin Pipe Market Dynamics

Driver: Sprinkler and drip irrigation provide good growth potential

Sprinkler irrigation is an advanced method of irrigation by which water is sprayed through nozzles connected to a network of pipes with water supplied under pressure. This method of irrigation has higher application and distribution efficiency and affects considerable savings of water. The development of sprinkler irrigation got a boost after the Second World War, and there has been a tremendous development of it, particularly in Europe and in the US. It serves nearly 45% of the irrigated area.

Restraint: Rising concerns pertaining to plastic disposal

Plastics are inexpensive, lightweight, and durable materials, which can readily be molded into a variety of products for a wide range of applications. Consequently, the production of plastics has increased significantly in the past 60 years. However, the current level of their usage and disposal generates several environmental problems. Nearly 4% of the global oil & gas production is used as feedstock for plastics, while 3%–4% is expended to provide energy for their manufacturing. A major portion of plastics produced each year is used to make disposable items that are discarded within a year.

Opportunity: Growing need of PO pipes for communication and cooking gas supplies

Home office and online commerce are pushing digitization. This upheaval in the economy seems to have very little to do with pipes at first glance. However, large sums are currently being invested in the expansion of fibre optic networks all across the globe.

Challenges: Climatic challenges to maintain pipes

During pipes and fittings installation it is important to consider the connection between temperature variations and the problems that may arise from them. The extreme climatic conditions influence both the laying process and the lifespan of the products but also their proper performance, thus causing problems for the entire system.
