The plastics pipe, pipe fitting, and unlaminated profile shape manufacturing establishments primarily engage in manufacturing of unsupported plastic profile shapes or plastic pipes and pipe fittings from PVC and PVDCs. These products are widely used in agriculture, utilities and construction industries.
The global plastic pipe, pipe fitting, and unlaminated profile shape manufacturing market was valued at $160.2 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $71.50 billion or 44.63% of the global market. China was the largest country accounting for $35.50 billion or 22.16% of the global plastic pipe, pipe fitting, and unlaminated profile shape manufacturing market.
Green solutions are being adopted by plastic product manufacturers to reduce carbon emissions. They are using green materials such as polyethylene produced from ethanol sugarcane, soybeans, tapioca instead of polyethylene from oil or natural gas. Production of lightweight, thermoplastics, multifunctional, biodegradable and recyclable plastics are also some of the strategies adopted by plastic manufacturing to reduce the impact of plastics products on the environment.
