Abstract

Global Polyvinyl Chloride Market: Overview

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the widely produced synthetic plastic polymer after polypropylene and polyethylene. Polyvinyl chloride is found in two forms such as flexible and rigid. The rigid PVC is used for the manufacturing of windows, doors, and pipes in the construction industry. In addition, in the production of bottles, cards, and non-food packaging rigid PVCs are used. The card can be made softer by adding plasticizers. It is also used in imitation leather, plumbing, signage, electrical cable insulation, inflatable products, phonograph records, and other applications where it replaces rubber. It is brittle solid white in color and slightly soluble in tetrahydrofuran but insoluble in alcohol.

Global Polyvinyl Chloride Market: Growth Factors

Polyvinyl chloride is used in a wide range of applications such as construction, pipes, furniture, electric cables, healthcare, plasticizers, and clothing this is anticipated to fuel the market in coming years. In the construction industry, it is used in the manufacturing of cables, window frames, wallpaper, pipes, flooring, and cables. In consumer product applications, it is used in cling films, credit cards, bottles, packaging, and others. Accelerating use of the acetylene in order to produce PVC will give rise to the market growth in future. Polyvinyl chloride is heavily preferred in the market over traditional materials such as copper, iron, and wood owing to its excellent properties and operational efficiencies. It holds excellent mechanical and hardness properties, which increases with the molecular weight and decreases with the rising temperature. It has good insulation properties owing to its high polar nature but it is less significant to non-polymers such as polyethylene and polypropylene.
