Global Polyvinyl Chloride Market Registered a Strong Demand with a Volume of Nearly 42 Million Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of About 4.71% During the Forecast Period

Global Polyvinyl Chloride market registered a strong demand with a volume of nearly 42 million tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 4.71% during the forecast period.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is a versatile and affordable thermoplastic polymer. PVC has properties like flame retardance, electrical, water & heat resistance. It can withstand pressure or damage and is light weight in nature. Owing to all these properties PVC became the choice of many construction industries in applications like fencing, window frames, flooring, railing & decking.

Increasing population and urbanization are other factors which tend to increase the demand for PVC all around the globe. Since PVC is strong and has good resistance to moisture and abrasion, thus it is an ideal material for cladding, roofing, wall covering etc. It also holds share in packaging industry (like food, medical, & other packaging), textile and transportation as it is durable, flexible, and light weight. Clear PVC film is used in medicine packaging while rigid film is used in blister packaging to protect goods from damage during transportation. It offers superior rigidity than PET thus, can maintain a proper shape and is ideally suited for making of use and throw boxes. PVC being economical than other polymers, attracts many sectors to deploy it in their production process. PVC is also resistant to chemicals thus is used in making different types of cosmetic container. The global Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) market is anticipated to reach 65 million tonnes by 2030.

Based on demand by region, the Asia Pacific region is dominating the Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) market. Rapidly expanding electrical and electronic sector is a significant driver for the growth of PVC market in Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is the most active regions in terms of innovations and production of better-quality product to meet the demand of future market, keeping in mind the cost effectiveness. According to the overall export data analysis, China is found to be the leading exporter as well as producer of Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC).

Based on the end-user industry, the global Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) market is segregated into Pipe and Fittings, Profiles and Tubes, Films and Sheets, Bottles, Wires and Cables, and Other end-use industries.
