The most important application for PVC are pipes and conduits.
The most important application for PVC are pipes and conduits.

According to the market research institute Ceresana, the global demand for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) will rise by, on average, 2.3% per year until 2024.

Despite questionable plasticizers, PVC is one of the best-selling types of plastic. Production continues to rise, unimpressed by health and environmental discussion: In 2016, over 42 million tons of PVC were consumed, corresponding to over 16% of total plastics demand.

With a market share of 60%, the Asia Pacific region is the most important sales market.

Meanwhile, the most important application for PVC are pipes and conduits, demanding over 16.1 million tons in 2016. Worldwide, PVC is the most commonly used material for plastic pipes, despite polyethylene and polypropylene becoming more popular.

Profiles rank second at a considerable distance, followed by films and sheets. PVC profiles are mostly used for window frames, doors, sun protection applications, façades, and other cladding.

Due to the high halogen content, PVC compounds are very flame resistant. Another beneficial attribute is the significant resistance to moisture and numerous chemicals. Hence, rigid PVC sheets and flexible PVC films are used in the construction, automotive, and packaging industries.

The application cables is likely to develop at the most dynamic growth rates of all PVC applications at 2.9% per year until 2024, reported Ceresana.

With a share of 60%, the construction industry is the most important customer for PVC producers. Examples for the use in the construction industry are: films, cables, pipes, profiles and covers, sheets, pegs, screws, fastening elements, and coatings.

The packaging industry ranks second with 17%, using PVC for flexible and rigid packaging. The most important areas are packaging films, bags and sacks as well as shrink and stretch films. Rigid packaging includes containers such as butter dishes, yoghurt cups, bottles, boxes as well as caps.
