Date of publication: September 2014

Overview: 
The 2014 edition of the Pressure Pipes –European Market study analyses in depth the market trends and presents them in an easy-to-grasp format.  The report thus constitutes an invaluable tool, aimed at helping companies make informed decisions in terms of market positioning.

Executive summary

A concise but comprehensive overview of the main conclusions.

Section 1: The market for pressure pipes – European and regional analysis

A detailed analysis of the demand for pressure pipes – value, size, growth, trends and drivers – in the following regions:

  • European overview
  • Austria, Germany, Switzerland
  • UK and the Republic of Ireland
  • Italy and Greece
  • France
  • Spain and Portugal
  • Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands
  • Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden
  • Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland
  • Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia

Section 2: The market for plastic pipes – by applications

A detailed analysis of the demand for plastic pipes – size, growth, trends and drivers – in the following applications:

  • Pipes for supply and distribution of drinking water; and
  • Pipes for low pressure transmission and distribution of natural gas

Section 3: The raw materials market

An insightful discussion addressing demand and supply issues pertaining to raw materials: value, size, trends, drivers, main suppliers and their perceived market positions and strategy, etc.

Section 4: Pipe supply review

An in-depth analysis of the pressure pipes supply, including supply chain, production, trade, main suppliers, etc.

Section 5: Technology

An analysis of the status and changes in pipe, fitting and system design, manufacturing technology, material technology and inter-material competition, end-user requirements.

 

Application scope and segmentation

The study will encompass the following application segments:

  • Pipes for supply and distribution of drinking water; and
  • Pipes for low pressure transmission and distribution of natural gas.

The demand for fittings and accessories will also be quantified, as an additional ‘application’.

Segmentation by diameter

To enable a more useful analysis, the demand for and production of pipes will be segmented by diameter range.

Thus, the market for drinking water pipes will be segmented into the following diameter ranges:

  • Less than 89 mm
  • 90-179 mm
  • 180-299 mm
  • 300-499 mm

The data for gas pipes will be segmented into the following diameter ranges:

  • Less than 89 mm
  • 90-179 mm
  • More than 180 mm

Materials scope

The study will quantify the demand for pipes made of the following materials:

  • PVC (including u-PVC, m-PVC and o-PVC)
  • PE 80
  • PE 100
  • PE 100 RC
  • Ductile iron

Reporting basis

The study will provide demand data as follows:

  • Base year demand (2013)
  • Estimated current demand (2014)
  • Historical demand (2007-2012)
  • Forecasts to 2018

Units of measure

Demand and production of pipes will be reported in kilometres.
Raw material data will be reported in metric tonnes.
Financial metrics will typically be expressed in Euro, US dollars or (where necessary) in local currency.

Geographical scope and segmentation

For the purpose of this report, Europe is defined as the European Union (28 countries), as well as Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.  To enable meaningful analysis, the 31 countries were divided into the following Geo-Economic Segments:

  • Austria, Germany, Switzerland
  • Ireland, United Kingdom
  • France
  • Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta
  • Portugal, Spain
  • Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands
  • Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden
  • Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland
  • Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia

The report is supplied as a downloadable PDF with an enterprise-wide license agreement. One printed hard copy of the report is also provided.
