Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a synthetic polymer. It is commercially available in two forms rigid and flexible. Favourable properties of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) include lightweight, good mechanical strength, durability, fire-retardant nature, chemical and abrasion resistance, recyclability and low cost. These properties have led to a wide application of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in the production of pipes & fittings, profiles, tubes, medical products, films, sheets, wires and cables, bottles, crash cushions and other consumer goods such as toys.
Buildings and constructions industry are the major end-users of the polyvinyl chloride market followed by packaging industry. Rigid applications lead the global polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market; however, flexible applications have also been gaining attention and increased investments lately. Leading products of the global polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market include pipes, fittings profiles and tubes. Other relevant applications of polyvinyl chloride are in the production of biobased additives, wood plastics polymers, electric vehicles etc.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) can be maintained up to 150 years of its lifespan and can be reused seven times by recycling. However, its low biodegradability is raising concerns now. In addition, feedstock prices are continuously rising. These two factors can significantly hamper the growth of the global polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market. However, being an area of active research, new line of eco-friendly products can be expected in the coming future. This can positively improve the growth of the global polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market.
Asia-Pacific leads the global polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market in terms of both demand and production followed by Europe and North America. The MEA polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market is also projected to witness a significant growth in the coming future. Key players in the global polyvinyl chloride market include Aiscondel Laminados S.A, APEX Petrochemical Company Ltd, Arkema, Axiall Corp, Braskem S.A, Chemplast Sanmar Limited, China General Plastics Corp, Ercros SA, Finolex Industries Limited (FIL), Formosa Plastics Corporation, Formosa Plastics Corporation, Hanwha Chemical Corp, INEOS Group AG, INEOS ChlorVinyls, Kaneka Corporation, LG Chem, Mexichem S.A.B de CV, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation.
