Europe PVC market is expected to witness a CAGR of 3.06%during the forecast period, 2018 to 2023. PVC is available in two forms, viz. flexible and rigid. Flexible PVC has various applications, such as electrical cable insulation, plumbing, inflatable products, medical devices, and signage. Rigid PVC is extensively used in profile applications in windows & doors and construction (in the form of pipes). Additionally, rigid PVC is used to manufacture bottles, cards (membership cards, identity cards, bank cards, etc.) and non-food packaging. In 2017, Germany held a major share of almost 20% in the Europe PVC market owing to the high demand from building & construction industry.

Recovering Construction Industry in Europe

Possessing characteristics of strength, durability, easy-to-use and being lightweight, PVC is used in window, pipes, and floorings, among other applications in the construction industry. PVC flooring has advantages, such as durability, freedom of aesthetic effects, and ease in installation, cleaning, and recycling. PVC pipes are widely used for pipeline systems for water, waste, and drainage, since these pipes suffer no build-up, scaling, corrosion or pitting and they provide smooth surfaces, which reduces energy requirements for pumping. PVC floorings have similar advantages. Hence, the usage of PVC is high in the region.

Pipes and Fittings Market to Dominate the Market

PVC piping is the most widely used plastic piping material; approximately half of the world's annually manufactured PVC resin is used to manufacture pipes for a range of industrial applications. PVC piping systems are environmentally sound, easy to install, corrosion-resistant and cost-effective. PVC pipes are available for both solid wall and cellular core construction. PVC pipes are used for drain-waste-vent (DWV), sewers, water mains, water service lines, irrigation and various other industrial installations. Furthermore, PVC pipes can be used either underground or above ground in buildings. Rising constructional activities coupled with renovation of houses in various European nations is boosting the demand for pipes and fittings in the region.

Germany to Lead the Market

Germany is the largest economy in Europe and the fifth-largest globally. The automotive industry is the largest sector in Germany, accounting for 20% of the total industrial revenue. The public consumption rate has increased by 0.5%, which is expected to drive the growth of the automotive, construction, and electrical & electronics sectors, along with accelerating the PVC market growth. Globally, Germany is well-known for its outstanding automotive industry and excellence in engineering. The country is the leading market in Europe. The growing automotive industry is expected to drive the PVC market in the future. Furthermore the demand for PVC in UK is expected to expand at a fastest CAGR during the forecast period.
