Global Polyvinyl Chloride Market Overview

The Polyvinyl Chloride Market Size was valued at USD 43.20 Billion in 2022. The Polyvinyl Chloride industry is projected to grow from USD 45.35 Billion in 2023 to USD 60.40 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.28% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an amorphous compound with polar chlorine atoms present in the molecular structure. Due to the chlorine content present in it, PVC has a permanent fire-decelerating property. If we look at the structure of PVC the chlorine atom is attached to every carbon chain present in it which makes the present compound highly rebellious to oxidation reactions and maintains its performance for a long period in turn increasing its durability. Other properties of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are flexibility, elasticity, impact resistance, anti-fouling, prevention of microbial growth, and anti-mist. It comes under the category of thermoplastics as it is made up of 57% of chlorine and 43% of carbon. It is not dependent upon non-sustainable resources like crude oil or natural gas. In comparison to plastics (such as PE, PP, PS, and PET) that are dependent on oil or gas, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin is considered to be more eco-friendly.Polyvinyl Chloride Market OverviewSource: Secondary Research, Primary Research, MRFR Database, and Analyst Review
