Europe Pipes – Summary
The European pipe market is expected to soar high with a CAGR of 5.18% during the forecast period (2017-2023). It can touch USD 73,824.8 million mark by 2023, reports Market Research Future (MRFR). A useful mode of supply, these pipes are now one of the major lifelines of the European states and will enjoy considerable growth owing to rapid urbanization.
Governments across regions are now intensely involved in promotion and development of infrastructures. To boost the growth of the market further and propel the real estate sector, governments are now implementing stipulations, reforms, and integrating eco-friendly methods to attain a much sustainable future. Furthermore, a rise in industrialization and public projects can act as major driving factors.
Plastic pipes are much in demand for their superior life expectancy, cost-effectiveness, and easy installation process. On the other hand, various sectors such as transport now prefer flexible pipes that are lightweight, consistent, and offer high resistance to corrosion. Increasing onshore and offshore drilling has spurred the demand further for such pipes.
However, fluctuating raw material prices are impeding the growth of the market as manufacturers fail to decide on a suitable price often to maintain the cost-value ratio. Also, disposable PVC pipes affect the environment which can deter the market growth.
The Europe market for pipe is segmented by material and end-user.
By material, the market includes plastic, steel, aluminum, concrete, and copper. Among these, steel accounted for a large market share in 2016. It is likely to lure in more investment during the assessment period. The scenario is expected to remain so as the segment is also expected to grow with the fastest CAGR.
Based on end-user, the market comprises oil & gas, chemicals, automotive, pharmaceutical, food processing and water & wastewater. Water & wastewater segment held over 37.96% of the market of which the valuation was USD 21,083.2 Million in 2017. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.80% during the assessment period.
