Market Analysis and Size
Plastic pipes are thermoplastic materials produced from the polymerization of ethylene. The plastic pipes are manufactured by extrusion in sizes ranging from ½" to 63". The materials are available in rolled coils of various lengths or straight lengths up to 40 feet. Generally, small diameters are coiled, and large diameters are in straight lengths. PE pipes of plastics are available in many varieties of wall thicknesses. A significant benefit of plastic pipe is their small environmental impact compared to other materials.
These plastic pipes are highly beneficial in replacing old or obsolete municipal pipe systems. Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the plastic pipes market is expected to reach the value of SAR 4,755.01 million by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period. “PVC pipes “accounts for the most prominent product type segment in the respective market owing to rise in the construction activities.

Most model plumbing codes recognise plastic or PE pipe as acceptable for water services, drainage, and sewer applications. Plastic can be used in low temperatures without the risk of brittle failure. Thus, a major application for certain PE piping formulations is for low-temperature heat transfer applications such as radiant floor heating, snow melting, ice rinks, and geothermal ground source heat pump piping.
- ISO 13953: 2001: This International Standard describes a test method for the determination of the tensile strength and tensile failure mode of butt-fused plastic (PE) pipe assemblies. The method is applicable to butt-fused joints between PE pipes with a nominal outside diameter. The method may be used, together with other test methods, to evaluate the quality of the butt-fused joints
- API SPEC 15LE: 2008: This specification aims to provide standards for plastic (PE) line pipe suitable for conveying oil, gas and non-potable water in the underground, above ground and reliner applications for the oil and gas producing industries. The standard does not propose to address all of the safety concerns associated with the design, installation or use of products suggested herein
These standards provide qualification for plastic pipes production, protocols and guidelines that ensures a high level of security and certifies the material for use.
COVID-19 had a Minimal Impact on KSA Plastic Pipes Market
COVID-19 impacted various manufacturing industries in the year 2020-2021 as it led to the closure of workplaces, disruption of supply chains, and restrictions on transportation. However, a significant impact was noticed on the plastic pipes market. The operations and supply chain of plastic pipes, with multiple manufacturing facilities, were still operating in the region. The service providers continued offering plastic pipe products following sanitation and safety measures in the post-COVID scenario.
The Market Dynamics of the KSA Plastic Pipes Market Include:
- Growing demand for ready-to-eat food products
Ready-to-cook food requires perfect packaging solutions to protect the food from biological contamination and physical influence. This has increased the demand for thermal insulating packaging materials, contributing to the growth of the North America Thermal insulation packaging market.
- Ongoing rehabilitation and construction of old or obsolete municipal pipe systems
Municipal sewer line breaks pose an array of environmental and safety hazards, and require the immediate attention of city planning officials. Neglecting a sewer line break can lead to more expensive and severe problems, including toxic water contamination or flooding, street and sidewalk damage and many others. Therefore, the new lines of piping systems are replaced with damaged and compromised sewer systems through the usage of new PE piping technologies. In conclusion, the usage of PE systems has made the municipal pipe repair and construction system more easy and safe. This in turn, increased the demand for plastic pipes and thus contributing to the growth of KSA plastic pipes market.
- Increasing application of HDPE pipes in various end use industries
Creating new and advanced innovations for end-use applications would result in high market penetration and a variety of new products. In addition, HDPE pipes are used across the globe for applications such as water mains, gas mains, sewer mains, slurry transfer lines, rural irrigation, fire system supply lines, and electrical and communications conduit, and stormwater and drainage pipes. In conclusion, HDPE’s high ductility and ability to resist deflections from ground movement can withstand the shock, pressure and movement that can potentially destroy the rigid pipe. This in turn increased the demand for plastic pipes and thus contributing to the growth of KSA plastic pipes market.
- The growth in demand from water irrigation systems in agricultural industry
PVC PE pipes are durable and can withstand sudden pressure and stress with ease for years. Therefore, PVC pipe’s long life span gives it an edge over other pipes, especially when it comes to agricultural usage. Under appropriate conditions, the pipe can even last for more than 50 years without being supplanted. Compared to a metal pipe, an agriculture PVC PE pipe comes at a fraction of the cost, which is quite economical for farmers. In conclusion, PVC PE pipes are very customizable, and hence the market is flooded with numerous fittings of different types and sizes of the pipes. This, in turn increased the demand for plastic pipes and thus contributing to the growth of KSA plastic pipes market.
- Innovation and technological advancements in PE pipe
Advancements in HDPE pipe model and technology are improving for use in PE pipe, which is further used for construction applications, wires and cabling, medical tubing, flooring, fabrics and other industrial applications. New advancements include PVC-O fittings, oriented PPR, and modified PVC fittings PE pipes which are considerably stronger, allowing the wall thickness to be reduced close to 50% while maintaining the same pressure strength. Furthermore, the rising and fast-paced advancement in technology of plastic pipes production will help manufacturers achieve more profits and help them increase their production capacities, which will, in turn, fulfill the increasing demand for plastic pipes. This will act as a major opportunity for the expansion and growth of the KSA plastic pipes market.
Restraints/Challenges faced by the KSA Plastic Pipes Market
- Risk associated with pipe breakages
Bursting water pipes is one of the common plumbing issues that homeowners have to contend with. Whether in the house’s plumbing network or the supply pipes, water pipes can burst without warning, leading to a major repair requiring a qualified plumber's attention. Burst pipes are often the result of a significant level of structural damage, including bad piping structure and poor quality. In conclusion, when a clog occurs within the pipes, it can cause pressure to build up within those pipes, leading to pipe breakages. This in turn, decreases the demand for PE pipes and thus restricting the demand of KSA plastic pipes market.
- Volatility in the prices of raw materials
During the production of plastic pipes, the harmful gases can stimulate diseases in plants, inhibit seed production, and hinder fertilization. Therefore, strict regulations regarding the manufacturing of plastic pipes can bring society and industry various benefits, hence making production and supply chains cleaner and safer and reducing the risk of accidents. It also provides incentives to develop safer piping products and more resource-efficient along with safer production methods. In conclusion, PE pipe is recognized as acceptable plumbing piping for water services, drainage, and sewer applications in most model plumbing codes, which further calls for different rules and regulations set for the application of the PE pipes. This in turn decreases the demand for plastic pipes and hence challenging the growth of the KSA plastic pipes market
