Analysts’ Viewpoint

In order to accelerate business activities, plastic pipe extrusion machine providers are increasing efforts to assemble and ship machinery on a short notice during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Even though HDPE pipes are resistant to most chemicals solvents, in many cases, these pipes can be flammable and sensitive to stress cracking. Hence, manufacturers in the HDPE pipes market should boost their production capabilities in state-of-the-art pipes that meet high rigorous quality and manufacturing standards. There is a demand for HDPE pipes that are smooth and reduce the oil & gas ability to build up on the pipe surface over time. Pipe tracer systems are gaining popularity to allow the detection, localization, and identification of underground networks.

HDPE Pipes Market: Overview

  • HDPE pipes are increasingly being used in residential, industrial, as well as commercial sectors worldwide. As a result, outlook for the HDPE pipes market appears positive. Agriculture, fishing, and chemical products industries are among the prominent end users of HDPE pipes. The oil & gas sector is another industrial domain that is likely to provide a plethora of opportunities to players operating in the HDPE pipes market landscape.
  • HDPE pipes are electrical conduits made from graded raw materials such as PE 63, PE 80, and PE 100. These pipes are premier mediums of conveying and transporting chemicals, water, and gases. One of the major advantages of utilizing HDPE pipes is that they are six to eight times lighter than conventional cast iron and galvanized iron pipes. Additionally, HDPE pipes are non-corrosive. This makes them suitable for water transportation.
  • Advantageous properties of HDPE pipes make them appropriate for numerous applications, including flood irrigation, drip irrigation, portable water supply & distribution, sewage & industrial effluent disposal, air-conditioning & refrigeration ducting, electrical installations, and drainage pipes

Key Growth Drivers of HDPE Pipes Market

  • Benefits of HDPE pipes are expected to fuel the overall demand for pipes in the near future, as HDPE pipes are low-cost alternatives for other pipes. HDPE pipes are affordable for usage in agriculture and various other end-use sectors.
  • Deterioration of water pipelines caused by corrosion of old iron pipes hampers their capability to provide safe drinking water. It is a complicated issue faced by several regions across the world. HDPE pipes are resistant to underground external corrosion as well as internal pipe corrosion. Plastics have a wide range of favorable attributes that enable their usage in designing of various electronic and electric appliances.
  • HDPE pipes exhibit excellent resistance to a wide range of chemical reagents and disinfectant chemicals. HDPE pipes are highly suitable for usage in water infrastructure projects, as they can carry a majority of strong acids, alkalis, and aqueous solutions; aliphatic hydrocarbons; fluorides; photographic and plating solutions; brine; mineral oils; fats; and alcohols.
  • Pipe blockage is a major concern associated with any pipeline system. It can cause substantial damage and incur high cost of repairs. Water flowing slowly through a pipeline increases the risk of blockages and failures in a system with several connections. The extremely smooth lining of HDPE pipes, as compared to copper, clay, or concrete pipes, reduces resistance to water flow and ensures that the water reaches its intended destination at a proper pressure. PE piping enables water to flow freely and maximizes water pressure.
  • HDPE pipes offer significant cost savings for projects in terms of quick installation, low breakage rates, and low lifecycle costs. The longevity of HDPE pipes also implies that pipes function more efficiently, thus reducing maintenance of pipes, and making them more affordable over time.

Restraints of HDPE Pipes Market

  • Manufacturers of plastic products usually add several additives, pigments, modifiers, and fillers to induce properties such as high density, elasticity, rigidity, and color into products. However, these fillers, additives, and pigments face issues while recycling. This, in turn, results in poor quality of recycled plastics.
  • Certain plastics are more difficult to recycle compared to others. For instance, LDPE is difficult to collect, sort, and recycle. LDPE bales are relatively expensive to transport due to low density. Recycling of flexible plastics is highly difficult. They cannot be utilized for the same application again. Hence, down-cycling is the only option available.

Lucrative Opportunities for HDPE Pipes Market

  • Deployment of HDPE pipes or piping systems for usage in industrial water and municipal water applications has increased significantly worldwide. This is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the HDPE pipes market during the forecast period. HDPE pipes are being increasingly used in ground source geothermal applications. This is projected to boost the global HDPE pipes market. Rise in emphasis on HDPE pipes by municipal corporations around the world, particularly in developing regions, has augmented the demand for HDPE pipes for usage in a range of applications, including sewage systems, potable water systems, and reclaimed water. The oil & gas sector is likely to remain one of the prominent end-use sectors of the HDPE pipes market during the forecast period, due to the consistent rise in demand for HDPE pipes in oilrigs across the globe.
