There are many possibilities. I'm from Canada so I'm not sure what products are typically used in your area. It's most likely a type of PEX product. Not sure how much is accessible, but your best bet is to see if you can make out any markings on the pipe.

Be sure to check what type of plastic pipe that is and confirm that it is compatible with the Sharkbite fittings.

comment Why is my shower not draining, even though there is no physical blockage?
Just to clarify vent distances. Codes are all different, where I'm from (Canada), the maximum length of a trap arm (the distance between the trap and the vent pipe) is determined by the slope on the trap arm, in that: the total fall of the trap arm cannot be greater than its inside diameter. The slope on 2" pipe is 1/50 so the maximum distance is 2.4m or 7' 10-1/2".
