AMI sees 2% growth in demand for plastic pipe

A new guide to Europe’s 545 pipe extruders by market research group Applied Market Information, UK www.amiplastics.com, estimates overall tonnage produced at 2.8m t for 2004. With around 56%, PVC accounts for the highest share, followed by PE with 36%. From 2005-2010, AMI expects European plastic pipe consumption to continue growing at around 2% a year. It says the new EU countries will provide an important stimulus, but Germany’s weakness is seen likely to continue.
