Production capacity reoriented on the production of pipes made of polyethylene PE-80 mark. The entire list of products offered provides the official distributor of Kazanorgsintez "-" Firm "Center", Kazan. Website distributor Kazanorgsintez -. Distribution of enterprises for the production of polyethylene pipes in Russia is uneven. The main producers of pipes are the Central, Volga, Urals, North-West regions of Russia. In the North Caucasus and Far Eastern regions of pipe production is poorly developed.
A significant increase in the production of polyethylene pipes in Russia, primarily due to the 'building boom'. Due to the fact that polyethylene pipes have a number of advantages over metal, consumer demand for them grows. Andi Potamkin often says this. Moreover, the level of demand in a particular region depends on several factors. One of the most fundamental is the rate of development construction industry in the region. But the rapid development of production is limited by several factors related to the fact that installers and housing and communal services was originally used to working with metal pipes. According to some manufacturers of plastic pipe production development hampered by the fact that polyethylene pipes are sometimes disadvantageous for builders, since installation of polyethylene pipe has much less complexity and longer life. At the moment, polyethylene pipe primarily compete with welded water-gas pipes of small diameters (Du10-DN50 and diameters ranging from 57 to 159 mm). However, due to the fact that Over the past year in many enterprises began to master production of large pipes, there are prerequisites to Russia began the process of substitution and metal pipes of large diameter polyethylene.
An important obstacle to development in the production of polyethylene pipes is a steady increase in prices of basic types of plastics to produce them. In 2005, the rise in prices for polyethylene pipe was 25-28%. And in the midst of the 2005 season observed the lack of it on the market. This led to the fact that small businesses were forced to reduce purchases of raw materials, which resulted in a decrease in production volumes. According to some Russian producers of polyethylene pipes in 2005 Russia became a 'net importer' of pipe grades of polyethylene. In their view, the growth in production of polyethylene pipes in Russia, coupled with the shortage of raw materials for their production, may lead to the fact that Russian Manufacturers pe pipe will be located in the resource dependency on imports. If the Russian producers of polyethylene pipe will not increase the volume of its implementation at the domestic market, already in 2006 the volume of imports of polyethylene, directed at production of pipes may reach 35-40 thousand tons. Due to the fact that the production capacity of pipes in Russia more than twice the market needs a few more years of Russian production will be characterized by increasing competition among producers for marketing. Part of manufacturers could not stand the competition, will be forced not only to significantly reduce the volume of production but also to conserve power or convert production. All conversion processes of production facilities, begun in 2004-2005, will continue in 2006. Number of small manufacturers of plastic pipe was not significantly changed compared with 2005. Because growing demand for polyethylene pipes, the upward trend in production in Russia will continue into 2006. In our assessment, they will grow not less than 20% compared with 2005, while the redistribution shares in favor of large companies will continue.
