South Africa to Register Highest Growth:

South Africa has the fastest growth with CAGR of 4.9% in 2024-2030 during forecast period 2024-2030. Increase in demand for pipes in the construction and water and wastewater treatment industry drives the demand for PVC pressure pipe during the forecast period. Surge in use of PVC pipes is expected to be a major driver for Africa pressure pipe market growth in the future.

South African manufacturer Sizabantu Piping Systems expands on the R&D evolution and its own contribution to growing the regional PVC market for water and wastewater.?According to U.S. Department of Commerce, in Africa more than 95% of domestic sewer reticulation systems use PVC pipes. The improvement in PVC’s strength, driven by improved technology, is substantial: increasing from 10 MPa to 36 MPa as the material has metamorphosed through PVC-U (unplasticised), PVC-M (modified) and PVC-O (oriented). The 260% increase in the strength of PVC-O (Oriented Unplasticised Poly Vinyl Chloride) pressure pipes provides a significant advantage to design engineers, clients, and the people.?

African Pressure Pipe Market Report – Key Takeaways:

  • Pressure Pipe Segment to Register the Fastest Growth

In the African Pressure Pipe Market analysis, Pressure Pipe segment is estimated to grow with the highest CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period. In April 2022, South Africa-based energy and chemical giant Sasol Ltd. announced to no longer invest in a planned gas pipeline from Mozambique to South Africa to avoid being locked-in to costly fossil fuel infrastructure in the long-term. The company instead plans to focus on liquified natural gas (LNG) imports to achieve the goal of 30% reduction in green house gases emissions by 2030 which tend to be a major driving factor for the growth of Gas Reticulation Pipes in Africa, contributing significantly in the Africa Pressure Pipe Market growth during the forecast period.

  • Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) is the Leading Segment in the Market

PVC pipe held the largest market share of 35% in 2023. PVC pressure pipe is a white plastic pipe that is used in plumbing and drainage.?PVC has grown in acceptance as an alternative to metal piping. PVC is a widely used plastic all over the world because of its strength, durability, ease of installation, and low cost.

  • Rise of Extensive use of Pressure Pipe in the Utility Sector for Various Applications such as Water Distribution, Sewage Treatment and Others

The necessity for urban sewage treatment has been prompted by the sharp rise in consumer demand and the growing shortage of fresh water. The most recent methods, such as biological treatment, suspended material removal, and disinfection/oxidation, are utilized to treat municipal water and wastewater. During the process, the pressure pipes are extensively used. For effective management of drinking water and wastewater across Africa, the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) designed the Blue and Green Drop certification programs. In this program, water and wastewater treatment plants are scored based on their overall performance based on several indices.

  • Rapid industrialization and Urbanization in the Region is Fueling the Market Growth

Growing investments in infrastructures and construction activities are driving the market growth. Increasing usage of pipe for both domestic and commercial applications is acting as a potential market driver for the market. Also, rising renovations and remodelling activities, increase the sales and profit of the players operating in the market. * As the world becomes more populous, increased urbanization, climate change and changes in food production are driving water demand at a rate that outpaces supply. To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for water and sanitation by 2030, Africa will need to invest consistently in water infrastructure, operations and maintenance, efficient water resource management, and strengthened policy and regulatory frameworks. Current annual investment levels are in the $8-10 billion range, with annual investment needs of around $22 billion.

Key Opportunity Analysis:

Ongoing development in the usage of polyethene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) resins to manufacture polyolefin pressure pipes.

In September 2021, SABIC announced the development of BiAx Pipe technology, which offers substantial improvements over incumbent polyolefin pipes across the entire range of performance criteria. With the introduction of polyolefins for pressure pipes, continuous efforts have been made to improve the performance levels and expand the application scope of polyolefin pipes. Higher resistance against internal pressure enables wall-thickness reduction and thus can reduce material use by at least 30%. Superior resistance to slow-crack growth (RC) facilitates trenchless pipe Installation, in addition, the smooth inner wall surface reduces the energy required for pumping. Apart from this, the new PE and PP pipes showcase better resistance to disinfectants, a lower coefficient of linear thermal expansion (CITE) and improved low-temperature impact strength. This technology renders the pipes more abrasion-resistant and prolongs their Life time. Such characteristics provide a major leap forward in the performance profile of polyolefin pressure pipes. SABIC is partnering with leading players in the pipe industry to validate and accelerate the time to market of its new BiAx Polyolefin Pipe technology.

Growing investment and innovations towards establishing seawater desalination plants across the continent hold significant growth opportunities for Africa

The State of the Climate in Africa report estimates that high water stress is set to affect about 250 million people in Alnca and is expected to displace up to 700 million people by 2030. Four out of five African countries are unlikely to have sustainably managed water resources by 2030.?Increasing consumption combined with more frequent droughts and heat events are analyzed to increase water demand and put additional pressure on already scarce water resources. Disruption in water availability is expected to impede access to the sale of water and threatens to trigger conflicts between people who are already contending with economic challenges. Around 418 million people still lack even a basic level of drinking water and 779 million people lack basic sanitation services across the continent. Desalination technology is capable of solving this issue of water shortage. while producing a new industry dedicated to ensuring that local and regional water needs are met. This is aiding the establishment of new desalination plants across Entre Africa. Growing construction activities for setting up new seawater desalination plants or expansion in the capacity of existing plants require the installation of a high-pressure piping system, and this factor is contributing toward market growth.

Agricultural expansion

Agricultural expansion, driven by the need to enhance food security, further propels the demand for pressure pipes, particularly in irrigation systems. As modern farming practices gain prominence, the market favors durable and technologically advanced pipes. Additionally, the exploration and extraction of oil and gas resources in certain regions create opportunities for specialized pressure pipes designed for safe and efficient fluid transportation.

Covid and Ukrainian Crisis Impact:

Significant price volatility in the plastics industry has been reported over the past year, owing to the impact of COVID-19 on the supply of input chemicals, such as alcohol. Moreover, the subsequent lockdown, price hikes over the past few months, and escalating import and operational costs have also resulted in an interrupted and reliable supply of raw materials.

Russia’s war in Ukraine has hampered Africa’s promising recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic by raising food and fuel prices, disrupting trade of goods and services, tightening fiscal space, limiting green transitions, and reducing the flow of development finance across the continent. or instance, by the end of 2021, Africa exceeded expectations of a 3.7 percent GDP growth, recording a 4.5 percent growth. The recovery was fragile but the continent appeared to be back on track toward attaining the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals. However, on February 24, Russia invaded?Ukraine in an unprovoked act of aggression. The aftershocks of the ongoing war are being felt around the world, including in Africa.
