Talking about the current situation and prospects of China's PE water supply pipe production line marketTalking about the current situation and prospects of China's PE water supply pipe production line market
As an emerging industry in my country, polyethylene pipes have made considerable progress and rapid development. The widespread use of the new PE water supply pipe production line has promoted the rapid development of China's construction industry, chemical industry and related industries. In foreign countries, plastic pipes continue to replace pipes made of metal or other traditional materials, and they are developing very rapidly. According to relevant data, the demand for plastic pipes is still growing at a rate of 4.2% per year, and its output value is growing at a rate of 8% per year.
my country began to produce plastic pipes in the 1970s, and began to be popularized and applied in engineering construction in the early 1980s. In the past 20 years, plastic pipes have been greatly developed not only in quantity, but also in varieties and specifications. By the end of 1999, there were about 2,000 plastic pipe production lines nationwide, of which about 15% were imported equipment. The total production capacity reached 1.65 million tons, and the actual output was about 1 million tons. Among them, the production of PVC pipes is 500,000 tons, accounting for 50%; the production of PE pipes is 360,000 tons, accounting for 36%.
Rigid polyvinyl chloride pipe PVC pipe is mainly used for urban water supply, drainage and construction drainage, water supply and other transportation pipelines. At present, there are more than 600 PVC-U pipe manufacturers in China, with an annual production capacity of 1 million tons (the actual production volume is about 500,000 tons). The production equipment of PVC-U has basically realized localization. However, because PVC pipes are slightly toxic, they are gradually replaced by PE pipes.
Polyethylene pipe PE pipe is mainly used for transportation pipelines such as city gas, water supply and building water supply. At present, there are nearly 150 PE pipe manufacturers in China, of which nearly 100 are producing rural water supply and agricultural irrigation pipes, with an annual production capacity of 450,000 tons (the actual production volume is about 360,000 tons).
PE water supply pipe production line
Relevant people predict that by 2015, 85% of new residential buildings nationwide will use new PE pipes for internal drainage pipes, building water supply pipes, hot water supply pipes and heating pipes, basically eliminating traditional cast iron pipes and galvanized steel pipes. . The use of plastic pipes in rural water supply pipelines will reach 90%.
Since the beginning of the new century, polyethylene pipes have become more and more popular with people due to their advantages of low energy consumption, low environmental pollution, and good product performance, and have been valued by relevant government departments. Recently, the Ministry of Construction issued a notice to strengthen the production management and promotion of plastic pipes. It can be seen that the corrugated pipe production line will have great market development potential in China in the future.
