Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is one of the most widely used plastics across the world. Properties such as lightweight, high mechanical strength, abrasion resistance, and toughness make PVC a widely used material in the Construction, Packaging, Automotive, and Electrical industries. PVC is extensively used in many products, such as pipes and fittings, rigid films, rigid plates, cables and wires, flooring, automotive parts, and packaging. It has an excellent cost to performance ratio, and hence, it is very popular among all consumer segments.
The analysts forecast the Global PVC market to grow at a CAGR of 5.09 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global PVC market can be divided into four segments: Construction, Packaging, Consumer Goods, and Electrical.
The report, the Global PVC Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the APAC region, Europe, North America, and the MEA region; it also covers the Global PVC market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One of the major trends driving the growth of the market is the rise in the demand for polyvinyl chloride from the Electric Vehicles industry. The fast growing demand for electric vehicles such as hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and battery electric vehicles could widen the scope of the Global PVC market during the forecast period of 2013-2018. The rising prices of fuel coupled with the concern of increasing greenhouse gas have forced countries to take initiatives to promote electric vehicles.
According to the report, one of the main drivers of the Global PVC market is an increase in the demand for PVC from the Asia Pacific region. The fast growing construction industry in the APAC region is boosting the demand for PVC products that are used in civil and structural engineering.
