Report Overview

The Southeast Asia pipes market size was estimated at USD 19.1 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.3 % from 2020 to 2028. Growth in the infrastructure development in the region spurred by FDI inflow due to “China plus one” policy adopted by major downstream companies is expected to drive the demand for pipes in the region, which is further expected to drive market growth.

Indonesia pipes market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

Stringent covid restrictions imposed in key economies such as Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand resulted in the temporary closure of many non-essential industries and construction sites. In addition, the construction sector witnessed a downfall in several countries, leading to a decline in demand for pipes in key construction applications, thereby limiting the industry growth.

The rise in awareness on sanitization, demand for pure drinking water, and rise in investments in hospital buildings post the COVID 19 pandemic are factors likely to improve the macroeconomic indices of the Southeast Asian countries in the coming years. In addition, the market is also expected to witness revival on account of the restart of the construction activities in 2021, in the region.

The construction and industrial sector are the major application areas propelling the demand for pipes in the market. Factors such as stable exchange rate, rapid industrialization, fast-paced infrastructural developments, subdued oil prices, and a moderate inflation rate drive the overall economic growth in emerging economies in the region, consequently driving the demand for pipes in residential and commercial spaces.

Plastics have progressively displaced multiple materials, especially in the piping or tubing industry. Rising construction activities on account of increasing population, industrialization, urbanization across the region are expected to result in the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Pipe manufacturers tend to opt for recyclable raw materials to curb pollution and reduce their recycling burden. For instance, Wavin, a prominent market player, offers pipes produced from 50% recyclable raw materials using its Recycore technology. A majority of the manufacturers of plastic and plastic pipes exhibit similar trends in investment, acquisition, expansion, product launches, and geographic expansions.

Product Insights

The steel and alloy pipes segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 37.2% in 2020. This is attributed to widespread applications of these pipes in multiple industries including manufacturing, transportation, construction, oil and gas, and HVAC. In addition, the growing usage of steel and its alloys as a substitute for metals such as cast iron and lead due to problems of corrosion and health issues related to them, is expected to drive the demand for steel and alloy pipes.

Steel and alloy pipes are used in various application industries such as manufacturing, transportation, Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), desalination, and nuclear power owing to their properties such as anti-corrosion, less reactivity, high strength, and tough texture. The growth of these application industries in Southeast Asian countries is expected to drive the demand for steel and alloy pipes over the forecast period.

Polypropylene (PP) pipes are used in several applications including chemical drainage systems, industrial and process piping applications, and hot and cold-water distribution, due to lightweight piping material with high chemical resistance, corrosion resistance, and high durability. PP-R pipes are the most widely used PP pipes due to internal pressure resistance at high temperatures which makes them the material of choice in chemical and food processing industries.

The growing adoption of copper pipes in applications such as HVAC, sprinklers, CNG and LNG distribution, medical gas distribution and storage, and water supply is attributed to their properties such as flexibility, corrosion resistance, and lightweight. The adoption of copper pipes is rising in kitchens and bathrooms accessories due to their aesthetic appeal.

Application Insights

The drainage/sanitary segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.5% in 2020. This is attributed to the construction of several water supply projects, wastewater water treatment projects, and drainage and sewerage projects in many parts of Southeast Asia. Furthermore, grants by several foreign agencies including for the development of drainage and sanitary infrastructure in these countries are expected to benefit market growth.

The growth of the HVAC application segment in the market is expected to be driven by growth in the commercial and industrial construction industries in countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Growth in industries, such as hospitality, healthcare, retail, and pharmaceuticals, is expected to drive the growth of the HVAC industry in Southeast Asia, which, in turn, is expected to create new growth avenues in the market for pipes in the coming years.

The growing demand for pipes in other applications, such as fluid transportation, cable protection, electrical appliances, and oil well casing, can be attributed to the growth in industries such as power generation, transportation, food processing, oil and gas, automobile, and renewable energy generation. In addition, investments by governments in countries, such as Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, toward setting up power generation plants and rail and road networks are expected to benefit market growth.

Growth in the e-commerce sector in several countries including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia has led to the construction of several cold storage warehouses, thus leading to rising demand for pipes in the HVAC industry. In addition, growing investments in the region for the development of the e-commerce delivery infrastructure are expected to drive market growth.

End-use Insights

The commercial end-use segment dominated the Southeast Asia pipes market and accounted for the largest revenue share of about 72.9% in 2020. This is attributed to rising government investments for the development of water infrastructure projects, industrial facilities for power generation, refrigerant plants, and drainage systems. In addition, the development of new drainage and sewerage systems in partnership with private players and foreign agencies in Southeast Asian countries is expected to benefit market growth.

The demand for pipes in the commercial construction industry is expected to rise over the forecast period owing to the government’s emphasis on the development of water infrastructure projects, industrial facilities for power generation, and refrigerant plants. Investments in partnership with foreign agencies for the development of proper drainage and sewerage systems are expected to create growth avenues in the market.

Southeast Asia pipes market share, by end-use, 2020 (%)

The residential end-use segment is expected to be driven by increasing investments by government and private players toward the construction of residential housing units for the growing population in several countries including Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia. The construction of affordable rental homes in Myanmar and Thailand is expected to create growth opportunities in the market.

The residential construction industry is expected to witness growth on account of the affordable housing schemes by governments in several countries. For instance, in April 2021, the Thailand government announced the construction of 100,000 homes under the National Housing Authority’s house-rental project for the low-income sector.

Country Insights

Indonesia dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 28.3% in 2020. This is attributed to the construction of water treatment, drainage, and sewerage projects by the government in partnership with several private players. In addition, mass construction of residential complexes by the government as per the 2020-24 mid-term development plan is expected to create new growth opportunities in the Indonesia pipes market.

Foreign investment in the development of drainage and sewerage systems in Vietnam is expected to create growth opportunities in the market. For instance, in February 2020, JICA signed a grant agreement with the government of Vietnam to provide an aid of about USD 17.4 billion for the Trenchless Sewerage Pipe Rehabilitation project in Ho Chi Minh City.
