Price fluctuations are rarely positive in business. For example, the prices for the raw materials copper and steel have almost doubled within only 11 months. The construction industry and its customers are confronted with this price volatility when steel piping systems are to be used in building services engineering.

Factors influencing fluctuating commodity prices. Rising steel prices on the world market in 2020, for example, have led to double-digit inflation surcharges being imposed on numerous products at the beginning of 2021.

Given the uncertainties and price volatility of the steel market, polypropylene (PP) pipes are the safest alternative, taking into account price stability, durability, and CO² footprint. The price of PP pipes has remained remarkably stable and predictable over the years. Engineers designing HVAC/P systems and contractors bidding on them can be assured that the price of PP pipes will not fluctuate due to changes in the commodity markets.

At a time when price fluctuations and other unpredictable factors negatively affect the use of steel pipes, it is a great advantage if the total cost of a pipe installation remains predictable. However, stable pricing is only one of the many advantages that PP pipes offer over steel. Significantly lighter weight, longer service life, and virtually leak-free joints when properly welded are also among the positives to consider.

Less CO² Emissions
