The global Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) market is expected to acheive a CAGR of 5.48% during 2018-2023. The demand for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market is rising, owing to the increasing usage of and demand for high performance plastics. PVC reduce weight and enhance fuel economy of vehicles, thereby, consistently increasing their applications in the medical sector.

The building & construction industry has a dominant market share in the Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) market. The continually increasing population, combined with the growing purchasing power of middle-class population in developing economies (such as India, South Korea and ASEAN Countries), has boosted the demand for infrastructural projects,(such as recreational centers, shopping malls, sophisticated health care centers, high-rise buildings (to cater the needs of high population in small areas), housing complexes, etc.). The demand has led to an increase in consumption of PVC in the building & construction industry, in different forms. The usage of PVC is also increasing in others industries, such as automotive, medical, footwear, packaging, etc.

One of the major drivers propelling the PVC demand, is the accelerating usage of high performance plastics to improve the fuel economy, thereby reducing the overall weight of the vehicles. With the enactment of stringent corporate average fuel economy (CAFÉ) standards, combined with the aim of reducing exhaust or carbon emissions, the automobile manufacturers are focusing on developing light-weight vehicles that can incorporate high-performance plastics and light-weight materials, such as PVC, thereby propelling the market’s growth.

In terms of consumption, Asia-Pacific accounted for a significant market size (in USD million). During the forecast period, this region is projected to be the fastest among the other regions, North America, Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. In Asia-Pacific, the major demand for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) comes from the building & construction segment, as the construction industry (in countries such as China, India, South Korea, few ASEAN Countries etc.), is growing at a fast pace, owing to the rise in infrastructural projects in these countries. Additionally, the demand and usage of PVC is also increasing in the medical sector with applications, such as in the manufacturing of medical devices like blood containers. By application type, PVC has been segmented into rigid, flexible, low smoke, and chlorinated PVC.

Few Notable Developments in the Market

In Sept 2017, China fined 18 PVC makers for a total fo USD 68.9 million for manipulating market proces

In Jul 2017, Formosa Plastics Corp. declared force majeure sales limits on some grades of PVC resin made at its plant in Point Comfort, Texas. However, this force majeure did not affect the delivery of pipe-grade material, according to company sources.

In Jul, 2017, Vestolit GmbH, a fully owned subsidiary of Mexichem, started the capacity expansion at its Germany PVC plant.

In Jan 2017, prices of PVC increased massively in India by USD 30/mt to reach USD 970/mt in just a week.
