Global Polyvinyl Chloride Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

a synthetic resin made from the polymerization of vinyl chloride, used esp.

Rigid Polyvinyl Chloride:

Rigid polyvinyl chloride is a synthetic non-resilient thermoplastic polymer, manufactured by the addition of vinyl chloride to propylene. It has high tensile strength and low elongation to break. RPLVC is used in applications where flexibility is required such as shower curtains, window blinds, geysers & hot tub enclosures and pool covers among others owing to its properties such as excellent chemical resistance, durability and easy installation.

Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride:

Flexible polyvinyl chloride is a thermoplastic polymer, which can be processed like other plastics. It has high flexibility and low thermal stability. The major applications of flexible PVC are in clothing, films for packaging, and construction materials such as pipes & tubes. Flexible PVC is also used in the manufacturing of toys and shower curtains among others.

Application Insights:

Building and construction was the largest application segment in 2017. It is also expected to be the fastest-growing application, with a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period owing to its excellent chemical properties and wide range of applications such as pipes, cables, cement composites, coatings & adhesives for masonry units among others.

Polyvinyl chloride is used in electrical & electronics industry as it meets all safety requirements regarding insulation resistance and flammability along with being lightweight compared to other materials used for manufacturing these products such as fiberglass or carbon fiber composites. Moreover, it has superior flexibility when exposed to high temperatures which makes processing easy while also ensuring durability of end products during use over long periods of time.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for a revenue share of over 40%. The region is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing construction activities in emerging economies such as China, India, and Indonesia. In addition, rising automotive production in countries such as Japan and South Korea is anticipated to fuel demand for PVC products including pipes, hoods, trunks lid etc., thereby supporting regional growth.

The European market also held a significant revenue share owing to the presence of major automobile manufacturers such as Volkswagen Group; BMW AG; Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.; Ford Motor Company; Renault S.A.; Daimler AG; Mercedes-Benz AMG GmbH among others that are actively involved in developing new vehicles using PVC materials Such As Seals & Tapes And Pipes For Air & Fuel Delivery Systems).

Growth Factors:

  • Growing demand from construction and infrastructure sectors
  • Rising demand for PVC pipes and fittings in water supply and drainage systems
  • Increasing use of PVC in electrical wiring and cables
  • Growing popularity of PVC films in packaging applications
  • Proliferation of plastics recycling industry
