Plastic Pressure Pipes Europe 2022
Published: March 2022
The market for infrastructure pipes is reputed for its conservatism. At AMI Consulting, we disagree with such characterisation. Despite caution, over the years we’ve seen tremendous changes, which are revolutionary. Almost every metre of low pressure gas distribution pipe installed in Europe has been plastic pipe. If nothing else, this example shows unequivocally that the market recognises, accepts and rewards valuable innovation. This will continue to drive demand for plastic pipes for both gas and pressure water systems, despite considerable economic challenges.
Plastic pipes offer a lower environmental impact than alternative materials and governments in Europe are targeting water leakage to ensure water efficiency by investing resources into identifying and repairing pipe leaks. 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.

Application scope and segmentation
The study encompasses the following application segments:
- Pipes for supply and distribution of drinking water.
- Pipes for low pressure transmission and distribution of natural gas.
- The demand for fittings and accessories is also quantified, as an additional ‘application’.
To enable a more useful analysis, the demand for and production of pipes are segmented by diameter range.
Thus, the market for drinking water pipes is segmented into the following diameter ranges:
- Less than 89 mm
- 90-179 mm
- 180-299 mm
- 300-499 mm
- More than 500 mm
The data for gas pipes is segmented into the following diameter ranges:
- Less than 89 mm
- 90-179 mm
- More than 180 mm
The study covers 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 (including, at this stage, PE100RD)
- Ductile iron
The study provides demand data for: 2016, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2026
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, UK, Benelux, Nordic countries, Spain, Poland, other occidental countries (OOC), and other Central and Eastern European countries (OCEE).
