PVC Pipes; Its Types, Features, and Market Scope

PVC or polyvinyl chloride is a 19th century, chemical innovation by German chemist Eugen Baumann. Primarily, PVC was used in the manufacturing of electrical wiring, shoes, and raincoats among others. Later, in the 20th century, PVC evolved to contribute significantly to the production of pipes. The advantage of PVC that adds to its extensive application in the fabrication of pipes is its thermoplastic nature. The thermoplastic nature of PVC makes it moldable and shape as intended, without wastage of the material. This is a desirable property for tailoring pipes.

Plasticized, unplasticized, and post-chlorinated are types of PVC pipes. PVC is blended with plasticizers to make it softer and flexible. Pipes made out of this mold is tagged as plasticized PVC pipes. Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) is the thermoplastic material derived obtained from fossil fuels and common salt. The NSF Standard 61 certified uPVC pipes for extensive use in the distribution of fresh drinking water across the world, especially in North America. Post chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) pipes are the foremost choice for commercial, residential, and industrial water and liquid transport owing to their impressive ability to resist salts, bases, acids, halogens, alcohols, and paraffinic hydrocarbons.

PVC pipes hold ample benefits, which are observed to be a predominant reason for the PVC pipe market to grow. Market Research Future (MRFR), in its report on the global PVC pipes market, states that between 2016 and 2023, the market can capitalize with an impressive CAGR of 7.13% and be valued, worth USD 70 Million by 2023.

Benefits of PVC Pipes Noted to Spur the Market Growth

The restiveness of PVC to corrosion and its high degree of inertness make PVC pipes unfavorable for bio-film contamination. These features of PVC favor the designing of pipes used in the transportation of drinking water.  Hence, PVC pipes are noted to bestow public health. Another distinct head of PVC pipes is that they are environment-friendly. Unlike other tradition plastic material, PVC pipes are recyclable. They can undergo numerous recycles without any degradation in its technical properties. Also, recycling PVC is a brilliant initiative to reduce the ecological footprint, as 2kgs of carbon dioxide is saved on recycling 1kg of PVC. Recycling PVC pipes is also creating scopes for employment in recycling plants. Europe to witness the highest number of employment in green jobs like in the PVC recycling plants. In the UK, Polypipe Plc is one of the key contenders in the European PVC pipes market.

PVC pipes possess a long shelf-life of about 70 to 100 years. As well as, the low maintenance cost of PVC piping is attributed to their appreciable durability. The installation cost for PVC pipes is also low. These factors increase the affordability of PVC pipes. Therefore, PVC pipes find their application in irrigation, vents, drain, sewage lines, water well casings, and swimming pools. The enormously growing popularity of PVC pipes is expected to prompt its market growth. Asia Pacific is the highest consumer of PVC pipes, and consequently the highest producer. Astral Polytechnik Limited in India, Egeplast A. S in Turkey, and China Lesso Group Holdings Ltd in China are two prominent vendors of PVC pipes in the APAC region. The great demand for PVC pipes in the construction industry in North America, accounted for the PVC market to grow substantially.
