Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Resin Market Overview

PVC Resin Overview

PVC is a widely used polymer. In terms of revenue generated, it is one of the most valuable products of the chemical industry. Globally, over 50% of PVC manufactured is used in construction for house siding, piping, etc. As a building material, PVC is inexpensive, hard, and easy to assemble. In recent years, PVC has been replacing traditional building materials such as wood and concrete. Despite appearing to be an ideal building material, concerns have been raised about the environmental and human health costs of PVC.

Markets insights 

Asia Pacific is the most popular regional market for the polyvinyl chlorides. This regional demand is mainly driven by increased consumption from China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand. China became the world’s largest PVC importer around the 1990s and as a result massive investments in the vinyl capacities and has huge capacities in excess today.

Western Europe and North America are the two mature markets for the polyvinyl chloride. The United States is the largest exporter of PVC where the offshore PVC markets have remained a significant outlet for the U.S. producers on account of its low-cost position that provides them an edge of shipping competitiveness globally. These two regions have almost similar market size with subdued capacities.
