Thermoplastic Pipe Market Highlights 2022 – 2030

The thermoplastic pipe market is estimated to garner a sizeable revenue by recording a CAGR of ~5% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising demand for corrosion-resistant pipelines, increasing usage of thermoplastic pipes in the treatment of wastewater, and growing number of oil & gas drilling activities. For instance, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, an average of 1,029 barrels/day of new-well oil was produced per rig, as of June 2021. The quantity amounted to be 1,031 barrels/day for new-well gas. Along with these, excellent properties of thermoplastics, such as high chemical resistance, flexibility and superior strength are also expected to boost the demand for the product in the upcoming years. Furthermore, the installation and service cost of maintaining a pipeline can be reduced significantly by using thermoplastic pipes, which in turn is projected to expand the market in the near future.

The market is segmented by application into oil & gas, municipal, mining, chemical, and others, out of which, the oil & gas segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the thermoplastic pipe market. The usage of thermoplastic as an alternative to conventional pipes is increasing. In addition, as thermoplastic doesn’t require any kind of maintenance and is highly resistant to varying pressure up to high temperatures, it is widely used during oil & gas drilling procedures, which in turn is evaluated to boost the growth of this market segment in the future. Additionally, on the basis of polymer type, the polyethylene (PE) segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period owing to the effectiveness of PE in harsh environments at extremely high and low temperatures. The flexibility and lightweight of these pipes are also assessed to drive growth to this market segment in the coming years.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Program), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favorable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labor as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
