UAE Plastic Pipes and Fittings Market Future Projections

The UAE plastic pipe market is expected to grow at a positive CAGR from 2018-2022. The construction market is a key driver of the U.A.E.’s economy and is second only to Saudi Arabia in terms of size within the GCC. But the sector has come under substantial pressure in the past few years due to the prolonged slump in oil prices. The U.A.E.’s strategic location, well-developed financial market, big consumer base and localized drivers will continue to make it one of the most attractive markets in the GCC. Owing to the upcoming Expo 2020 and the Vision 2021, the construction sector is anticipated to grow at a significant pace in the country. The PE products are expected to take over a substantial share of the PVC pipes and fittings market, owing to their increasing use in the plumbing, water supply, industrial, chemical, oil & gas and marine sector, especially in the large diameters. The demand for plastic pipes and fittings is likely to plunge after conclusion of the Expo 2020 as the current immediate and heightened demand for housing needs will drop.
