After significant declines in 2008 and 2009, the Plastic Pipe and Parts Manufacturing industry experienced increased demand from downstream industries, which has helped revenue recover from recessionary losses. Over the past five years, the industry has been buoyed by the utilities and agriculture industry, as rising population rates have increased the need to replace old infrastructure and efficiently distribute water to agriculture. The domestic car and automotive manufacturing market, which makes up most of the industry's industrial manufacturing sales, has also recovered strongly since the recession, though recovery in the construction industry has been slower. Despite the tepid construction market, strong recoveries in the key downstream utilities and agriculture markets will help offset volatility in the industry's other segments.
This industry manufactures a range of plastic pipes, plastic fittings for plastic pipes and unlaminated plastic profile shapes, such as rods, tubes, plates and car parts. This industry does not include plastic hose fixtures, plastic plumbing fixtures or plastic packaging.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
