2.Why PE Pipes : Of all the Pipes used globally, Plastics (PE and PVC) Pipes form around 40% share (Fig. 2). India is no exception to this, although there is a slight lag in under-standing of Plastics as Piping materials. Designers & Utility authorities used to stick to the traditional Piping and were seen not taking risks with materials they did not know. This is definitely changing now with the world wide popularity of PE Piping (Fig.3 & 4).

Muncipal Corporations/Utility Bodies in India and other countries , have realized the need to control non-revenue water (NRW - euphemism for water loss) and make their citizens sensitive to finite availability of potable water, and water conservation. PE Pipes are coming in handy to fulfill these objectives .
The challenge in Developed Countries : PE Pipes are seeing a resurgence of growth in developed world also due to the need of these countries to replace the old networks (come up progressively over the last 100 years or so) made with traditional Piping like metal (CI, GI, MS, etc) and cement pipes(RCC & AC Pipes). Increased activity in Coal Seam Gas/Shale Gas generation, Desalination, Broadband Networks, Mining, etc. is also leading to increase in use of PE Piping materials at a much higher rate of growth than anytime in the past.
