The Markets for Plastics Pipes in West Germany and the UK



Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1982 York


This paper discusses the existing markets and underlying trends for pipes made of plastics materials within Europe. Especial emphasis is given to the areas known best to the author, the Federal Republic of Germany and the United Kingdom.

In the U.K. some promising signs of recovery may be seen to be justified by September, and, with a background of raw material cutbacks and plant closures by major suppliers, some return to general profitability. It will be some time, however, before the good years of the late 1970's return.
