Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most widely used plastics. It is produced by polymerizing vinyl chloride monomers. It has an amorphous structure with polar chlorine atoms and possesses fire retarding properties, durability, and oil/chemical resistance. It is added with modifiers to modify its properties according to the end user demand in the PVC market. Various properties of Polyvinyl Chloride like abrasion resistance, light weight, good mechanical strength, and toughness enable its wide use in construction, automotive, packaging, and the electrical industries. It is widely employed for manufacturing pipes, fittings, profiles, tubes, films, sheets, wires, cables, bottles, and so on.

The market has grown considerably during the past few years and is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by the growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region and economic viability of Polyvinyl Chloride based products. The Asia-Pacific is the largest market, consuming more than half of the total PVC demanded, globally. The Market is mainly employed for manufacturing various products that serve to the construction and packaging industry in the region, with both the end-user industries also expected to drive the market along with the electrical industry.

This study aims to estimate the global market and to project the expected demand of the same by 2018. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the polyvinyl chloride market. It provides a comprehensive review of the major drivers, restraints, opportunities, winning imperatives, challenges, and key issues in the market. The industry is further segmented and projected for major regions such as Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, and ROW, which is further segmented for key countries in each region. We have used various secondary sources such as encyclopedia, directories and databases to identify and collect information useful for this extensive commercial study of PVC. The primary sources–experts from related industries and suppliers have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information and to assess the prospects of Polyvinyl Chloride.
