Polyvinyl Alcohol Fiber Market Overview


The reports have projected that the polyvinyl alcohol fibre market would reach a CAGR of 3.39% in terms of production in the forecast of 2021-2030.

In the year 2017, almost 145 thousand tons of PVA fibre was supplied across the world. While there has been an increase in the fibres' demand, the suppliers have ensured they keep a thorough check on the excellent manufacturing. It is one of the primary elements used in the process of reinforcement of ECC or engineered cementitious composites mainly because of Polyvinyl alcohol fibre properties. If the two main sectors are considered to boost the PVA market, these would be the textile industry and the construction sector. The fibre is used as an essential component in both sectors. In other words, the two drives would rather be incomplete without the fibre. Asia has emerged as the largest market for PVA because of the high demand in both sectors mentioned above. The polyvinyl alcohol market is on a rise with a quick yet steady speed.

Regional Analysis


The PVA market is divided into four major regions namely Europe, Asia, North America and the rest of the world.


The region that dominates the global PVA fiber market is Asia. It leads the market not just in terms of volume but also value. It has also been expected that Asia's dominance in the polyvinyl alcohol industry would continue for a very long period. The significant factors that have played a pivotal role in making Asia a dominant region are rapid urbanisation and the industrialisation of the countries. This has led to increasing demand for fiber for construction and the textile industries. It has also been estimated that Asia would witness a CAGR of 5.33% during the forecast period 2018-2023. also, according to the reports, the Asian PVA market would have a valuation of around 190, thereby increasing the polyvinyl alcohol fiber market share


The region that follows next is Europe due to increase in the demand for the fiber in textiles and urbanisation. The North American region is experiencing a slow rate of growth because most of the parts of the region are already developed and urbanisation is not as fast.
