Polyvinyl Chloride Market Research
Polyvinyl chloride, commonly abbreviated PVC, is a thermoplastic polymer, used in construction, besides being used for clothing, upholstery, flooring, electrical cable insulation, roofing membranes, etc.
The capacity and production of PVC is expected to significantly increase in the coming years. Currently, the global installed capacity for PVC production is 47.5 million tons per year. Research indicates that it is expected to grow to 59.1 million tons per year in 2020. The PVC production in world has grown from 24.7 million tons in 2000 to 32.3 million tons in 2009. It is expected to reach around 55.2 million tons in 2020.
Natural gas is the major feedstock used for the production of PVC followed by Naphtha. Coal-based derivatives are a newly emerging feedstock for PVC production. The suspension polymerization technique is the most widely used production process to produce PVC and accounts for more than 78% of the PVC produced in the world. The other important production processes are microsuspension polymerization, emulsion polymerization and mass polymerization.
