Programmes and policies to promote tourism, increase in residential construction projects to meet excess housing demands and changes in consumer preference towards high quality plastic pipes for their desirable properties has driven the growth of plastic pipes and fittings in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market is at its late growth stage. The market growth has stagnated as the decrease in oil prices has impacted the demand of plastic pipes and fittings in the country. There was decline of infrastructure and real estate opportunities coming up in the recent years. Saudi Arabia Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market is highly correlated with the development in the infrastructural, mining (petroleum and others) and construction of new house dwellings in the country. There has been a trend of substituting PVC pipes and fittings by PE pipes and fittings in potable water distribution applications and by PPR pipes and fittings in internal plumbing application in the past few years. The water supply and sewage end use application continues to be the leading end use application of the plastic pipes and fittings in Saudi Arabia. The market is concentrated with few organized players dominating the market.
The organized sector dominates the market due to its superior product quality and enjoys competitive advantage over the unorganized sector as it can provide product customization. Government schemes such as Vision 2030 to emphasize on developing sectors such as health care, defense, transport and logistics will increase in the investment in the construction of hospitals, factories and other infrastructure. Private sector contribution to the economy, transforming the government’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) into a USD 2 trillion sovereign wealth fund and to promote tourism in the country are some other key initiatives that have contributed majorly to the market growth. There has also been a shift in consumer preference from steel pipes to plastic pipes for various industrial uses such as distributing oil and natural gas as it is a more economical option. Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market in Saudi Arabia is highly competitive amongst the major players, and consequently, companies are increasingly focusing on product innovation and diversification and offering better quality products to expand their market shares.
