China is the world's biggest producer and consumer of plastic pipes. The output&demand of China's plastic pipe arrived at 12million tons and 11million tons correspondingly in 2013, representing the particular year on year increase of 10% and 7%. The production of PVC pipes is greater compared to other plastic pipe types in China, then is the production of PE pipes and PP pipes. In 2013, output of China's PVC pipe reaches 6.59 million tons,including 54% of China's total plastic pipe output, as the production of PE pipes and PP pipes shared 40.5% together.
Municipal water supply and drainage, building water supply and drainage along with other fields behave as the downstream of China plastic pipe industry.
