Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), is a synthetic resin, produced from the polymerization of the vinyl chloride. It is the third most widely produced synthetic plastic polymer. It is classified into two prime categories namely thermoplastic resins and thermosetting resins. PVC owing to its high tensile strength, ease of processing and blending, and flame resistant properties, is being used in numerous end-user industries such as automotive; electrical & electronics; building & construction; packaging; footwear; and others. Vinyl monomer is manufactured from ethylene and chlorine, monomers are converted to polymer by catalytic action, polymer is compounded by additives, and compounded PVC is used to make products and are sold to consumers after finishing.
PVC is available in two forms, namely, flexible and rigid. The flexible PVC is used in numerous applications such as electrical cable insulation plumbing, inflatable products, medical devices, and signage. However, the rigid PVC, owing to its nature is majorly used in profile applications in windows and door, and construction (in the form of pipes). Additionally, the rigid PVC is also used in the manufacturing of bottles; cards such as membership cards, ID cards, and bank card; and non-food packaging.
The market is driven by numerous factors such as usage of high-performance plastics to reduce the vehicle weight and for enhancing the fuel economy, growing demand from the construction industry in, and rising application in the healthcare industry and medical devices market. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as political unrest in the country and hazardous in nature. The aforementioned factors may act as a hindrance for the growth of the market.
