 Polyethylene Pipes Market

Polyethylene Pipes Market Analysis and Size

Over the recent years, there has been surge in spending on the water infrastructure and wastewater treatment. For instance, Johor (Malaysia) has installed an additional 224.6 MLD of treated water capacity, or at least 25%, compared to the treated water capacity present in 2012, according to the Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad (PAAB). In order to fulfil the rising demand from the expanding population and state economy, Johor will witness an overall increase in treated water capacity of 626.4 MLD or 35% by 2022, with an extra 61.8 MLD being built and 340 MLD to be completed. Ageing water infrastructure and a booming irrigation industry are therefore largely fueling the expansion of the polyethylene pipes market.

Global polyethylene pipes market was valued at USD 8964.70 million in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 13968.05 million by 2029, registering a CAGR of 5.70% during the forecast period of 2022-2029.

Market Opportunities

  • Significant investments for residential construction
  • Growing promotion of the polyethylene pipes by the government

Market Definition

A thermoplastic substance called polyethylene (PE) is created when ethylene is polymerized. Extrusion is used to produce PE plastic pipe in sizes ranging from 12" to 63". PE can be purchased in straight lengths up to 40 feet or in rolled coils of various lengths. It is a kind of flexible plastic pipe used to carry fluids and gases, and it is frequently used to replace main pipelines made of ageing concrete or steel.

Polyethylene Pipes Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:


  • High Demand Across End Users

The pipes made of polyethylene are largely used to transport drinking water. Across the globe, many nations are dealing with a water crisis that impacts both private households and entire cities. According to the US EPA, between treatment facilities and the tap, U.S. water companies together lose more than a quarter of processed water each day due to leaks and breakdowns. The cost of replacing potable water pipes could exceed $1 trillion over the next ten years. Consequently, a trustworthy and robust pipe material is required. One such material to take into account is high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. Additionally, it's thought that rising spending on wastewater treatment and water infrastructure will spur the market for the polyethylene pipes to expand.

Furthermore, the continuous infrastructure development in the developing countries will further propel the polyethylene pipes market growth rate. Additionally, the functional advantages such as durability, sustainability, flexibility, and superior resistance to corrosion and abrasion will drive market value growth. The expansion of the end-use industries is projected to bolster the market's growth.


  • Growth in the Investments

Furthermore, significant investments for residential construction further extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. For instance, the value of construction put in place in residential and nonresidential construction grew to $567,555 million and $470,986 million in January 2020 from $546,532 million and $466,436 million in December 2019, respectively, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. High housing demand is also present in Mexico, which has attracted substantial investment in new building.

  • Supportive Government Policies

Additionally, the growing promotion of the polyethylene pipes by the government as they help in reducing the greenhouse gas emissions will further expand the future growth of the polyethylene pipes market.


  • Fluctuations in Raw Material Costs

The cost of raw materials and their availability are significant determinants of the cost of finished goods. The fluctuating price trends of raw materials, which are changing as a result of unstable energy costs, pose the biggest threat to the global market polyethylene pipes. Therefore, crude oil is completely responsible for the manufacture of polyethylene raw materials, their availability, and their cost. The price volatility of crude oil has grown recently, according to BP's Statistical Review of World Energy. For example, the price of crude oil declined from $98.95 in 2014 to $52.39 in 2015 and surged from $43.73 in 2016 to $71.31 in 2018. Consequently, the fluctuations of the prices of raw materials prices is limiting the market’s growth.

  • Negative Impact Of COVID-19

The global epidemic has increased restrictions, which has impacted the supply and demand negatively. A shortage of raw materials as a result of the pandemic's spread disrupted the market for polyethylene pipes and had a detrimental effect on the expansion of the market. This negative impact of COVID-19 will further challenge the polyethylene pipes market growth rate.
