Global Polyvinyl Chloride Market, By Product (Rigid PVC, Flexible PVC, Low-smoke PVC, Chlorinated PV

Published Date: | Report Code : CH1958341


Polyvinyl Chloride is frequently referred to as PVC and is a polymer form generally produced following polypropylene and polyethylene. It is considered to be one of the polymers most commonly produced. Due to its operating productivity and profitability, polyvinyl chloride is preferred to standard products such as copper, iron or wood in several applications. The purest type of polyvinyl chloride in tetrahydrofuran, while insoluble in alcohol, is brittle strong, white, and marginally resolvable. It can be produced with the addition of phthalates and plasticizers to be soft and flexible.

Polyvinyl chloride is used in the smooth and flexible form in plumbing and expandable products, electrical cable insulation and other uses that can replace rubber. Polyvinyl chloride has elevated automated characteristics and rigidity, enhancing molecular encumbrance and continuously reducing the temperature with increasing. As its heat resistance is poor, polyvinyl chloride decomposes at high temperatures. However, it has increased insulation features, but its property of electrical insulation is less essential for non-polymers owing to its elevated polarity.

PVC is used for packaging purposes such as packaging of medical devices & devices, sleeving of bottles and packaging of electronic and other consumer goods. Growing packaging industry, predominantly plastic packaging, is expected to have a favorable perspective.

Due to its flexibility and heat resistance characteristics, PVC is used in wires & cables for insulation reasons. As a consequence, the growing construction industry in developing nations around the globe improves demand for electrification wires and cables.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:
    • Construction industry's rising demand
    • High use of plastics to reduce the weight of vehicles and improve fuel economy 
    • Dangerous human and environmental impact
