There is a growing demand for MDPE pipes for connections between the distribution mains to individual properties and for above ground services, if the pipes are installed within protective ducts. Build Plumb Plastics Ltd. - a building materials supplier in England, is recognizing this demand and building a comprehensive product portfolio in MDPE water pipes across various diameters and coil lengths.
The U.K. MDPE pipe market for water supply is predicted to reach an output of 41,031.49 tons by the end of 2031. Manufacturers are increasing production of pipes that are WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approved and conform to BS EN 12201 specifications.
The U.K. MDPE pipe market for water supply is projected to reach US$ 113.19 Mn by 2031. Weatherproof and long service life features are being preferred in MDPE pipes to achieve high stress cracking resistance. Sewage, seawater, and corporations are catalyzing the demand for these pipes. Manufacturers are increasing their R&D capabilities to produce pipes with best technical and operational characteristics.
Residential colonies and housing societies are creating stable revenue streams for manufacturers in the U.K. MDPE pipe market for water supply. Manufacturers are using special sky blue color in MDPE pipes to indicate that the material does not contain any impurities and is made of 100% virgin material.
The U.K. MDPE pipe market for water supply is slated to register a CAGR of 1.66% during the forecast period. Potentially fragmented nature of the market has led to increased competition and increasing number of supplier leading to accelerated oversupply of pipe products. Hence, stakeholders are anticipated to diversify their production capabilities in other polyethylene pipes to expand revenue streams.
High tensile strength and superior rigidity are being preferred in MDPE pipes. Manufacturers in the U.K. MDPE pipe market for water supply are gaining proficiency in changing the density of polyethylene through copolymerization of ethylene and other comonomer. This change leads to the addition of new cross-linking among polymers, which helps to increase the tensile strength of MDPE pipes.
