In India, the government is focused on developing pipeline network by increasing the availability of city-based gas distribution (CGD) and is aiming to cover approximately 200 cities by 2015. Also, with the pipeline network of India for oil & gas transport being lower at 19,103 kms as on April 2010, (32% penetration level) it represents a huge scope for growth for the pipe industry. Worldwide demand for plastic pipe is forecast to increase 4.6 percent annually through 2012 to 8.2 billion meters, or 18.2 million metric tons. Gains will be based on continued strong prospects in developing nations, particularly in China. In fact, China will account for 30 percent of overall length demand gains for plastic pipe between 2009 and 2020. Thus, as an entrepreneur this project offers an exciting opportunity to you.
