China’s Lesso to set up pipe plant in Indonesia

With the global demand for plastic pipes expected to grow in the coming five years and projected to reach 20.4 billion m by 2024, the Asia-Pacific region, especially the Southeast Asia region, has become the largest and most fast-growing markets for pipes worldwide.

Southeast Asia is now shifting fast from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy. Thus, its demand for plastic pipes has significantly grown due to the increased spending on infrastructure modernization projects, such as replacement of metal based pipes with plastic pipes in utility networks, expanding crop irrigation activities, rehabilitation of wastewater collection and water distribution, growing preference for no-dig technology, and etc.
