Published Date: | Report Code : MT1958291


The use of plastic made in building & construction is due to its properties like its low maintenance, scratch resistance, durability, lightweight, high strength, and design flexibility. The use of building & construction plastics are made by architects for various activities ranging from renovation to construction of new homes, non-residential buildings, etc, due to the inherent property of plastics like high performance, its durability.

Rising number of construction projects across the world, the ability of plastics to enhance the aesthetics of architecture and design at a reasonable cost, increase in residential and non-residential activities related to restructuring or renewing, are a few factors driving the growth of the building & construction plastics market across the globe. The growing industry of building & construction is assumed to fuel the demand for plastic for building & construction in the days to come. The reason for the increased demand for plastic by the building & construction industry are its low maintenance properties and ease in handling.

Segment Analysis:

The segment of Polyvinyl chloride is inferred to hold a considerable share in the build & construction plastics market since polyvinyl chloride is majorly used for various applications like pipeline system for water, wastewater, and industrial purposes. Also, the properties of polyvinyl chloride pipes like corrosion resistance, smooth surface, scaling help reduce the energy required for pumping. These are a few factors responsible for fueling the demand for polyvinyl chloride.

The piping segment is expected to grow at a significant rate in the days to come. This growth can be attributed to traditional materials made pipes being replaced by pipes made with plastic material, since pipes made of plastic are easily available, and are also low in cost in comparison to traditional materials made pipes.
