The Current Situation of China Plastic Pipe Industry and Market Opportunities for Further Economic Development in the Future

Posters # 2014 Chicago

In recent years, the Chinese plastic pipe industry has maintained a high growth rate and in 2012 the production of plastic pipe in China amounted to over 11 million tons. This not only provides important benefits due to the outstanding performance of plastic pipe, such as corrosion resistance, smooth wall, easy installation, etc, but also strengthens the macro-economic development and municipal engineering, engineering construction, water conservancy and the overall agricultural and industrial development. These in turn contribute the increase of production capacity, applications, product range, technological progress and standardization.

By 2013, the total production capacity of the plastic pipe industry in China has reached 25,000,000 tons, and the output has reached at 12,100,000 tons continuing the trend in recent years (see Table 1). The number of small scale manufacturers is reducing although in total there are still 5,000 enterprises in China. The annual production capacity of the top 20 enterprises has now reached more than 2,500,000 tons, accounting for more than 25% of the industry's total output, which means that industrial concentration is increasing.
