PVC and PE Pipes Witnessing High Traction

Focus of manufacturers on the right choice of material for a variety of applications is paving the way for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and PE pipes in China’s plastic pipes.

Additionally, these plastic pipes are lightweight, durable, and cost effective which remains the prime factor accelerating their adoption in the near future. For instance, in an effort to acquire higher resistance to temperatures, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipes (CPVC) are utilized in those applications that tend to subject pipelines with high temperature conditions. 

High density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes find application in drainage and sewer systems owing to high endurance and ability to withstand major temperature fluctuations. Increasing preference for HDPE pipes to replace older pipelines at industrial plants is expected to be a strong booster to plastic pipes market in China.

However, plastics still continue to be an incompatible choice for large diameter pipes. Moreover, environmental concerns associated with plastics remain a longstanding factor impeding sales of plastic pipes.
