According to a report published by Grand View Research, Inc.; the global Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) market is projected to reach at USD 79.11 billion by 2020. High demand from the construction industry in applications, such as pipes, floor & wall coverings, cables, fencing and landfill liners, is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. Increasing demand in electrical, electronics, and consumer applications is also likely to boost the product demand in the coming years. The PVC is utilized in a wide range of consumer products including toys, interior cladding, and ceiling tiles.
However, increasing use of polymers, such as Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) and polyethylene in medical devices due to rising concerns about health hazards caused by medical-grade PVC may have a negative impact on the market. The global PVC market can be segmented on the basis of application and region. Based on application, the market can be split into construction, consumer goods, packaging, electrical and electronics, transportation, and others. In 2013, the construction segment was the major segment and accounted for 55.7% of the overall market volume.
