GRP Pipes Market Trends


The major and the foremost driver for the global GRP Pipes Market growth is increasing penetration of GRP piping systems in the end use industry due to its properties The next main driver of the GRP Pipes Industry is the rising urbanization and growing need for sustainable energy.

Rapid industrialization in all countries is driving the call for profitable and sustainable pipes due to the rising cost of metal pipes and tubes. Urbanization and rising incomes of the middle class have led to increased use of abrasive chemicals in household cleaning and other daily activities. As a result, traditional iron and concrete pipes need to be replaced more frequently due to corrosion. GRP pipes are superior to steel pipe when it comes to corrosion and moisture resistance, thereby increasing the lifespan of water and sewage transmission pipelines.

GRP pipes are the greenest ones with a contribution of less than 2,000kg CO2-equivalents. These pipes have lesser carbon footprint during manufacturing, transportation, and installation of the same. It also imparts lesser amount of contamination with the liquid that it transports to the external environment due to its excellent leak-proof features. This helps preserve the ground water from contamination, preventing - health hazards and environmental pollution, and a loss in efficiency due to higher pumping requirements. Glass reinforced plastic piping is expected to gain market share due to its potential to economically replace metal and ductile pipes in green building constructions.
