Key Market Trends

Healthcare Industry Driving demand for PC Market
  • Traditionally, natural rubber and glass were used for medical devices, which required re-sterilization and cleaning for repeated usage. However, with advancements in the medical device market, manufacturers have started replacing conventional materials with high-performance plastics, such as PVC.
  • The high-performance, low-cost PVC materials have made it possible to manufacture present day single-use devices, such as tubes, containers, and syringes. This material has minimized the risk of life-threatening infections that spread through unsterilized medical devices.
  • Presently, about 40% of all the medical devices are made from PVC; it is the only material that guarantees performance and quality demanded by medical professionals and regulatory bodies.
  • In the medical devices market, PVC is primarily used for flexible tubing and containers, which are used for blood donation sets and components for urine products. Such similar more factors are driving the South America PVC market.
Brazil to dominate the South America market
  • Brazil is the largest and most populous country in South America. It is the eighth-largest economy in the world.
  • The government’s plan to balance the demand for and supply of affordable housing (created by the increasing population and rapid urbanization) and its efforts to improve the country’s aging transport infrastructure, using the public-private partnership (PPP) model, is expected to increase the demand for PVC.
  • The automotive industry in the country is one of the major economic industries. The industry contributes about 22% of the country’s industrial GDP and 4% to the total GDP. Brazil has witnessed an increase of 25.2% in the production of new motor vehicles in 2017 and an increase of 5.2% in 2018.
  • Mercedes-Benz, a German auto manufacturer, announced an investment of USD 4.7 billion by 2022, which is expected to increase the demand for PVC in the country during the forecast period.
