The global polyvinyl butyral market is projected to reach over USD 4.12 billion in terms of value by 2030, growing with the CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. The polyvinyl butyral is a resin which has excellent binding efficiency, good elasticity, adhesion, flexibility, and toughness. It finds a wide range of application in the commercial and industrial sector that includes printing ink, films for lamination, coatings & premiers, adhesive, and binders for metal powders & ceramics. Increase in demand for polyvinyl butyral has compelled manufacturers to expand their production capacities, for instance, Eastman Chemical Co. Ltd has expanded polyvinyl butyral production capacity in Suzhou, China. The company has taken such initiative to serve global customer’s needs in the region with shorter lead time, polyvinyl butyral produced is mainly for automotive windshield application.
Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) finds significant application in laminated safety glass for automotive windshields. Shifting consumer trends from private car ownership to shared mobility services has slightly reduced the sales of automotive vehicles. Though, due to the rise in global middle-class consumers and positive economic outlook, worldwide automotive sales are expected to remain positive in the coming years. Such trends are projected to drive the application of polyvinyl butyral in automotive windshield during the forecast period. In the construction industry, polyvinyl butyral material is used as laminated safety and security glass. Growing construction and infrastructure activities across the globe are projected to drive the polyvinyl butyral market during the forecast period. According to the US Census Bureau, construction spending on May 2019 was USD 1,293.9 billion further Asia-Pacific construction activities is also expected to boost the polyvinyl butyral market during the review period.
