Plastics Pipe, Pipe Fitting, and Unlaminated Profile Shape Manufacturing Global Market Trend
The market for plastic pipe, pipe fitting, and unlaminated plastic profile shape manufacturing has seen a significant increase in mergers and acquisitions over the last few years. Such collaborations are mainly aimed to increase product range and distributor network. In January, 2018, Mexichem, a prominent Mexican producer of plastic pipes, acquired Sylvin Technologies Inc, a niche polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compounds manufacturer based in Pennsylvania, USA, for $39 million on a debt free cash free valuation. The acquisition will allow Mexichem to expand its products presence in the USA market and downstream their processes in specialty products. Also, in 2017, Advanced Drainage System, a USA-based manufacturer of high performance thermoplastic corrugated pipe, announced its acquisition of Plastic Turbing Industries for $9.5 million.
Plastics Pipe, Pipe Fitting, and Unlaminated Profile Shape Manufacturing Global Market Segmentation
The Plastics Pipe, Pipe Fitting, and Unlaminated Profile Shape Manufacturing Global Market is segmented into Unlaminated Plastics Profile Shape; Plastics Pipe And Pipe Fitting.
Unlaminated Plastics Profile Shape Market comprises companies that convert plastic resins into rigid plastic pipes and pipe fittings. These plastic pipes are intrinsically strong so can be used to carry heavy loads. These pipes are generally non-flammable and resistant to weathering. Due to these properties, these pipes are mainly used in the construction, water supply and irrigation systems industries.
Piping and Fittings Market comprises establishments that convert plastic resins into non-rigid plastic profile shapes such as rods, tubes, and sausage casings. This market excludes shapes such as film, sheet, and bags. These plastic profile shapes are highly flexible and comprise properties such as elasticity, tensile strength, and providing good chemical and abrasion resistance due to its unlaminated nature. They are mainly used in the public infrastructure and construction industries.
