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 2018-2023.

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.

Global Polyvinyl alcohol fiber Market: Competitive Landscape


Some of the major players operating in the global polyvinyl alcohol fiber market are Kuraray Co., Ltd. (Japan), Nycon (US), Anhui Wanwei Group (China), Sinopec Sichuan Vinylon Works(China), Hunan Xiangwei Co., Ltd.(China), Inner Mongolia Shuangxin Environment-Friendly Material Co., Ltd.(China) , BouLing Chemical Co., Limited (China), Ningxia Dadi Circular Development Corp. Ltd.(China), and MiniFIBERS, Inc.(US).


Kuraray Co., Ltd. (Japan), Hunan Xiangwei Co., Ltd. (China), Anhui Wanwei Group (China), BouLing Chemical Co., Limited (China), and MiniFIBERS, Inc. (US) collectively holds the largest market share of the global polyvinyl alcohol fiber market. There is intense competition among these players to capture the largest market share in the global market. These players are implementing various strategies such as capacity expansions, supply/distribution agreements, mergers & acquisitions, investments, product launches, and joint ventures to maintain their market dominance and increase global presence. Among them, product launch was the most widely used growth strategies in 2017.


Kuraray Co., Ltd. (Kuraray) is the leading producer and innovator of polyvinyl alcohol fiber products. The company operates through six major business segments—vinyl acetate, isoprene, functional materials, fibers and textiles, trading, and others. In July 2016, Kuraray Europe GmbH launched two new PVA fiber grades, enhancing its product range. This product launch was carried out to strengthen its position in global market and meet the increasing demand for polyvinyl alcohol fiber products.


Hunan Xiangwei Co., Ltd., specializes in PVA and methyl acetate, and deals in the production of textiles and building materials. In March 2015, launched a trial PVA fiber in association with a paper mill in Guangdong, China, the results of which were positive, offering Xiangwei opportunities in the paper industry. In January 2015, the company launched a targeted cooperation project with a real estate company in Huaihua city to check the anti-crack effect of PVA used in cement mortar. This experiment was carried out to determine the optimal amount of PVA in cement mortar. This product launch and merger was done to cater the growing demand for polyvinyl alcohol fiber products and increase their market share in the global market.


Anhui Wanwei Group manufactures chemicals, fiber, and new materials in Anhui Province, China. The company offers a broad range of products including PVA fiber, high strength and high modulus (HSHM) PVA fiber, polyester chips, redispersible polyvinyl acetate emulsion powder, acetic anhydride, polyvinyl acetate emulsion, and concrete blocks. The company is focused on the production of PVA and HSHM-PVA fiber. In 2012, Anhui Wanwei Group invented a new type of PVA fiber that prevents the cracking of concrete and was listed as a national new key product by the Government of China.


BouLing Chemical Co., Limited  is among the leading polyvinyl alcohol fiber producers across the globe. It produces calcium carbide, vinyl acetate, PVA, and PVA fiber. The PVA produced by the company has won the National Best Silver Medal Award. The company intends to bring about constant innovation through the implementation of economic efficiency, science, and technology.


MiniFIBERS, Inc. provides a wide range of products from specialty extruded yarns to precision cut fibers, synthetic pulps, tolling services, and custom finishing and packaging. The company produces precision-cut PVA fibre. It also offers toll fiber cutting for yarn and tow manufacturers, packaging the fiber to specification. The company is ISO certified and has won the Tennessee Quality Award in 2016. It is constantly aiming to remain a supplier of top-quality products by producing cutting-edge technology.
