Market Overview


Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is an amorphous compound with polar chlorine atoms in the molecular structure. PVC has inherently superior fire retarding properties due to its chlorine content. PVC, having the molecular structure where the chlorine atom is bound to every other carbon chain which makes the compound highly resistant to oxidative reactions and maintains its performance for a long time. Other properties include flexibility, elasticity, impact resistance, anti-fouling, prevention of microbial growth, and anti-mist. These properties have major applications in manufacturing pipes for construction activities and insulation materials for electrical cables and wires.


According to MRFR analysis, the global polyvinyl chloride market is estimated to reach USD 72.0 billion by the end of 2025 at a robust CAGR of 4.5%. The growth of the global market for PVC is projected to be primarily driven by their increasing demand in the construction and automotive industries. Additionally, the rapid growth of the packaging & consumer goods is also expected to fuel the demand for polyvinyl chloride market.


However, weak growth in construction industry in the economies such as Germany, the UK, and Italy is estimated to lead to stagnant demand in Western Europe market. Major key players of polyvinyl chloride are planning to acquire small player and raw material players to reduce transportation cost and to gain maximum share in the global as well as in the regional market. However, small players are planning to invest in R&D to introduced variety of application of polyvinyl chloride. Based on application, the pipes & fittings segment is expected to hold more than one-third of the global market value share followed by the films & sheets segment.

Regional Analysis


The global polyvinyl chloride market has been studied across five key regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa. Based on market value share, Asia Pacific is estimated to hold more than one-third of the global market share and is expected to continue the dominance throughout the forecast period due to the increase in production of plastic production. The demand for polyvinyl chloride is increasing at a significant rate in China owing to factors such as rapid industrialization, growing industrial sectors, and high investments in infrastructure development. Additionally, in Asia-Pacific, India has increased its investments in the construction industry, where polyvinyl chloride are used for the various applications. The growth outlook of the polyvinyl chloride market in emerging Latin American economies, such as Mexico and Brazil, is expected to be lucrative during the assessment period. The demand for polyvinyl chloride in North America is expected to be stagnant due to the weak growth of construction industry. However, demand in Europe is moderate due to debt crises along with depressed business climate and slow monetary recovery. The Middle East & Africa is expected to witness a stable growth owing to the weak growth of the end-use industries, such as packaging, consumer goods, construction, etc., in the region.
