PVC Pipes Market Overview

PVC Pipes Market is projected to be worth USD 87.15 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.79% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030), The market was valued at USD 61.5 billion in 2020.

The production of PVC pipes is done by extrusion method in various dimensions like a solid wall or cellular core construction and is replaced for the traditional metal pipes. The traditional metal pipes are heavy with maintenance costs and become rusty. The PVC pipes can avoid these problems as they are corrosion-resistant, flame resistant, easy installation, and are low cost among other piping materials. Moreover, these pipes are having various beneficial factors like better strength, better durability, recyclability, chemical resistance, and are environmentally friendly which makes them ideal for a wide variety of applications from the transportation of drinking water, drainage systems, and also for the latest fire-sprinkler systems. These factors make these pipes ideal for replacing wood, metal, concrete, and clay in several applications.

After polyethylene and polypropylene, PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is the third-largest selling commodity in plastics. These pipes are used in various applications like sewers, water mains, drain-waste-vent, water service lines, irrigation, conduit, and other industrial installations. Pipes play a prominent role in the construction industry for carrying sewage and wastewater from the building structure and also carries in the main water supply lines. Apart, they are also used in internal plumbing for circulating water throughout the structure of the building. As these pipes are completely corrosion resistant and have less risk of succumbing to thermal expansion or contraction, these are preferred in warm or cold water applications depending upon the PVC variant type.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic has spread from one country to another and rapidly all over the regions. To curb the spread of the virus, various regions decided to implement lockdowns, border restrictions, and transportation network breakdown which highly impacts the chemicals & materials distribution network. pricing, international trade, entire supply chains, and manufacturing operations across the globe. Due to the lockdowns and the reduced demand from the end-use industries, declined pricing, supply chain disruptions of raw materials, the manufacturers faced various issues and led to a halt in production.

Hence, the PVC pipes production is also delayed and results in declining market growth. However, the companies are taking necessary steps to safeguard their employees’ health and also supporting the government’s aim to maintain critical business activities. The International Monetary Fund states that the economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak is very higher compared to the past outbreaks like avian flu, bird flu, swine flu, Ebola, and Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) as the coronavirus infected people are rising day-by-day and uncertainty when the crisis is likely to come to an end.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing the demand for pipes in the irrigation and building & construction industry is the major factor that drives the PVC pipes market in the assessment period. In the construction industry, the rising adoption of PVC pipes as a perfect alternative to metal & concrete pipes is predicted to be a major driver for the PVC pipes market growth in the coming years. Its benefits like easy installation and durability properties are projected to aid the demand for PVC pipes.

Rising investments of the governments for the development of water & wastewater treatment facilities, infrastructure along with water supply networks in the rural areas are estimated to boost the growth of the market in the review period.


The availability of substitutes like steel, HDPE, cross-linked polyethylene  (PEX), and ABS is restraining the growth of the PVC pipes market. Moreover, the toxicity of PVC pipes is hindering the market growth.


Increasing awareness regarding clean water supply in rural areas and rising investments in the developing regions are expected to create opportunities for the PVC pipes market growth. The introduction of technological innovation applying molecular orientation in PVC pipes leads to the improvement of PVC-O pipes.


Usage of PVC pipes for a longer period for the supply of drinking water leads to dangers as the taste of water changes into the taste of PVC pipes. Moreover, the disposal of PVC pipes releases greenhouse gases that harm the environment.
