The plastic pipes and fittings market in Saudi Arabia is in late growth stage. The organized sector (large and specialized companies) dominated the market due to superior product quality and product customization. Government schemes such as Vision 2030 to emphasize on developing sectors such as health care, defense, transport and logistics will increase the investment in the construction of hospitals, factories and other infrastructure, boost private sector contribution to the economy, transform the government's Public Investment Fund (PIF) into a USD 2 trillion sovereign wealth fund. There has also been a shift in consumer preference from steel pipes to plastic pipes for various industrial uses such as for the purpose of distributing oil and natural gas as it is a more economical option.

Market Segmentation:

In 2017, uPVC pipes and fittings continued to be the most prevalent product followed by PVC and CPVC pipes, PE pipes and others in terms of revenue in the Plastic Pipes and Fittings market in Saudi Arabia. The demand for PVC pipes and fittings has been declining due to substitution of PE and PPR products and its increasing application areas.

In 2017, Water supply and Sewage contributed the highest share to the Plastic Pipes and Fittings market of Saudi Arabia. This was followed by the plumbing sector, other applications such as oil and gas transmission, cable protection, healthcare and automotive industries, chemical and oil industries and Irrigation in terms of revenue.

Competitive Landscape

Saudi Arabia plastic pipes and fittings market is concentrated with the presence of few big players constituting majority of the market. Saudi Plastic Products Company Ltd (SAPPCO), Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), New Products Industries Co Ltd. (NEPROPLAST), Arabian Gulf Manufacturers Ltd (AGM), Al Watania Plastics, Munir Munif Plastic Factory (MMP) and Almona Plastic Product Company Ltd. Co. are the major players in the market. These big and established players compete with the other unorganized players on the basis of product customization, availability of credit facility, product quality and innovation.

Future Outlook

The future outlook of the industry is positive with an expected recovery in oil prices in the coming years. The construction industry will continue to expand with investments in infrastructure, residential, water and energy projects. The plastic pipes and fittings market growth will also be driven by the country's Vision 2030, under which the government aims to diversify the country's economy away from oil and support economic growth. Construction of affordable housing units is also expected to increase as the government plans to increase the proportion of Saudi families which own their own house from 47% in 2016 to 52% by 2020.

The transition in the preference for plastic type is set to reduce the market of PVC pipes and fittings and consequently increase the market of PE pipes by 2022 in terms of revenue. The proportion of imports is expected to fall in terms of volume as PPR and PE producers in the country increase their production to meet the local demand.
