[Online Quarterly Update] Global Polyvinyl Chloride market registered a strong demand for the product in the last five years and is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 5.2% during the forecast period. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a versatile and affordable thermoplastic polymer. PVC has properties like flame retardance, electrical, water & heat resistance. It can withstand pressure or damage and is light weight in nature. Owing to all these properties PVC became the choice of many construction industries in applications like fencing, window frames, flooring, railing & decking.
Increasing population and urbanization are other factors which tend to increase the demand for PVC all around the globe. Since PVC is strong and has good resistance to moisture and abrasion, thus it is an ideal material for cladding, roofing, wall covering etc. It also holds share in packaging industry (like food, medical, & other packaging), textile and transportation as it is durable, flexible, and light weight. Clear PVC film is used in medicine packaging while rigid film is used in blister packaging to protect goods from damage during transportation. It offers superior rigidity than PET thus, can maintain a proper shape and is ideally suited for making of use and throw boxes. PVC being economical than other polymers, attracts many sectors to deploy it in their production process. PVC is also resistant to chemicals thus is used in making different types of cosmetic container.
Owing to tremendous production capacity, U.S. is the largest exporter of PVC while China is the largest consumer & importer of PVC. Rapidly expanding electrical and electronic sector is a significant driver for the growth of PVC market in Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, Asia Pacific and North America regions are the most active regions in terms of innovations and production of better-quality product to meet the demand of future market, keeping in mind the cost effectiveness.
