PVC is an unstable compound which when exposed to heat has hydrogen (H) and chlorine (Cl) molecules escape from the molecular structure to form hydrochloric acid (HCl). Stabilizers are added to prevent hydrogen and chlorine precipitation from the PVC molecules and to provide thermal stability. PVC has a wide variety of applications and different stabilizers are used in different applications.
Market Dynamics of the Global PVC Stabilizer Market
Growing PVC usage in countries like China and India
Growing construction and piping industry
Europe has banned lead as a PVC stabilizer along with other heavy metals
Market is leaning towards vinyl free alternatives
Decomposition of PVC poses a hazardous risk of hydrochloric acid release
Global PVC Stabilizer Market Segmentation
The market can be broadly segmented by end-user industry (construction, piping, clothing and furniture, construction, electrical, flooring, healthcare and others) and by type (calcium based, lead based, organotin based, tin based, barium based, and others). The major end-user industry is construction, especially piping which accounts for half of the worlds consumption of PVC and thus PVC stabilizers. The market has also been geographically segmented into APAC, North America, Europe, South America and MEA. In terms of consumption in 2015, APAC led the market, followed by Europe and North America. This high production is driven by a rapid growth in the residential, commercial and public sector constructions, including piping of the projects for public use chiefly due to the urbanization in developing countries of China and India.
