Gravity Pipes European Market
Market Report

Gravity Pipes European Market

  • The industry suffered with the COVID-19 pandemic, after huge economic expansion following the recession in 2008. Resilience was key, which the plastic pipe industry has in abundance, alongside a capacity to adapt to new economic circumstances. 2021 is expected to be a rebound year for the sector but there’s uncertainty and weaker financial position going into it. If construction activity is affected, the plastic pipes industry may suffer from lack of investment.

    There is hope for the industry. Here, we examine the infrastructure sector, where a large proportion of the demand for gravity pipes comes from. Some parts of Europe have a well-developed infrastructure, including sewerage, roads and railway networks, as well as power and telecommunication cables. Nevertheless, major parts of that infrastructure need maintenance or modernisation. Further to this, thermoplastic pipes are gaining market share at the expense of non-thermoplastics for drainage and sewerage pipes, soil and waste pipes, roof drainage pipes and road and railway drainage. This will continue to drive demand for plastic pipes.

    The future of the industry is dependent on new standards and regulations, new solutions and inter-material competition trends. Understanding these is key to aligning effort, resource and product, and as a knock on – achieving success.

Report scope

  • Application scope and segmentation

    The study encompasses the following application segments:

    • Underground Drainage & Sewerage
    • Soil & Waste
    • Roof Drainage Systems
    • Road and land drainage
    • Cable Protection

    Materials scope

    The study includes the following thermoplastic-based systems:

    • PVC-based systems
    • Polyethylene-based systems
    • Polypropylene-based systems

  • In addition to thermoplastics, the pipe demand analysis includes also non-thermoplastic pipe systems:

    • Glass-reinforced polymeric pipes (GRP)
    • Ductile cast iron systems
    • Clay pipes
    • Concrete pipes

    Where beneficial, the report further analyses thermoplastic pipes by type of material (for instance PP-HM versus regular PP) and by pipe structure, i.e., solid wall, foamed wall, and twin wall.

    Data points

    The study provides demand data for 2016, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2026. It was published in June 2022. Updated data is available, please enquire for more information.

  • Geo scope

    Geographical scope

    For the purpose of this report, Europe is defined as the European Union (27 countries), as well as Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, and the UK.

    To enable meaningful analysis, the 31 countries were divided among France, Germany, Italy, the UK, Benelux, Nordic countries, Spain, Poland, other occidental countries (OOC), and other Central and Eastern European countries (OCEE).
