Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) – A Global Market Report

Irrespective of the ban that is to be imposed on polyvinyl chloride (PVC), alternative material developers are optimistic about the development of newer alternatives to flexible PVC. Such a trend is expected to increase the availability of options to customers. Alternative material developers also find it economical to operate a 100 million pound capacity plant of polyolefins and TPEs. Being competitive in the industry provides incentives to manufacturers of smaller polyolefin producers working towards developing new products. The cost per unit of manufacturing polyolefins and alternative materials is beneficial compared to PVC, providing substantial savings at end-user levels.

These and other market data and trends are presented in “Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC): A Global Market Report” by BizAcumen LLC. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses.
