Building & Construction Industry to Dominate the PVC Market
PVC is the most widely used polymer in building and construction applications. PVC is strong & lightweight, durable to weathering, rotting, chemical corrosion and abrasion, versatile, and easy to use. It can be cut, shaped, welded and joined in any style. Such characteristics make it an ideal option for many applications, such as pipes, windows, flooring, and roofing. PVC pipes have been used in building and construction for over 60 years as PVC offers valuable energy savings during production, low cost distribution and a safe, maintenance-free lifetime of service. These pipes are widely used for pipeline systems for water, waste and drainage as these pipes suffer no build-up, scaling, corrosion or pitting and they provide smooth surfaces reducing the energy requirements for pumping. The infrastructure & construction industry is expected to grow during the next five years, owing to the investment in public infrastructure, renewable and nuclear energy, commercial and industrial projects, and improvements in consumer and investor confidence. This is likely to boost the PVC market.
Brazil to Dominate the Market
Brazil has been facing economic and political crisis for decades, which affected the growth and caused a lack of funds to cover investment requirements. The political instability, high inflation rate, low prices of export of goods and depressed confidence level has caused a contraction of the Brazilian economy. Construction of new hotels, coupled with extension of the existing hotels, is likely to boost commercial construction in Brazil. With the positive growth of the construction industry, the PVC market is expected to grow during the forecast period.
