Global Crosslinked Polyethylene (PE-X) pipe Expected to Grow at 5.51% CAGR over 2016-2020

Date: 2016-09-11

With the outstanding benefits in flexibility, greater water pressure at fixtures, lower materials cost, easier installation, longevity and so on, the global Crosslinked Polyethylene (PE-X) pipe expected to grow at 5.51% CAGR over 2016-2020.

Cross-linked polyethylene, commonly abbreviated PEX or XLPE, is a form of polyethylene with cross-links. It is formed into tubing, and is used predominantly in building services pipework systems, hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems, domestic water piping, and insulation for high tension (high voltage) electrical cables. It is also used for natural gas and offshore oil applications, chemical transportation, and transportation of sewage and slurries. PEX has become a common alternative to polyvinyl chloride (PVC), chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) or copper tubing for use as residential water pipes.

In terms of geographic, Asia dominates the market, and China leading the growth rate across world, expects China will continue to grow at a CAGR of 6.43% over 2016-2020, North America is second the largest production in the world, estimate the will reach record high in demand, in addition, the Europe is also the global consumption region, and In European standards there are three classifications are referred to as PEX-A, -B, and -C. The classes are not related to any type of rating system.

Materials used in PEX pipes in North America are defined by cell classifications that are described in ASTM standards, the most common being ASTM F876. Cell classifications for PEX include 0006, 0008, 1006, 1008, 3006, 3008, 5006 and 5008, the most common being 5006. Classifications 0306, 3306, 5206 and 5306 are also common, these materials containing ultraviolet blockers and/or inhibitors for limited UV resistance.
