The global polyvinyl chloride market size is predicted to touch USD 72.0 billion at a 4.5% CAGR over the forecast period (2020-2030), states the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Polyvinyl chloride or PVC is basically a synthetic resin that is created from vinyl chloride polymerization. It is highly preferred over traditional materials, which include wood, copper, or iron in several profile applications owing to multiple benefits, alluring features, and operational efficiencies. PVC can be made soft and flexible with the addition of phthalates and plasticizers. In the soft and flexible form, it is used in inflatable products, plumbing, electrical cable insulation, and some applications that can replace rubber. 

PVC has an extensive range of applications including plasticizers, healthcare, clothing, furniture, construction, and others. Today it exists in a plethora of consumer products which includes packaging, cling films, credit cards, bottles, and others. It is also used in several construction materials such as wallpaper, flooring, cables, pipes, window frames, to name a few. Due to its water resistance, durability, and affordability, PVC is ideal for shower curtains, boots, and raincoats. 

Various factors are propelling the polyvinyl chloride market size. Some of these factors, according to the Market Research Future report, include burgeoning demand for polyvinyl chloride in the automotive and construction industries, rapid growth in consumer goods and packaging, and rising applications in the healthcare domain. 

On the contrary, the shortage in feedstock supply owing to the rise in the price of different products and closing down of facilities is likely to hamper the polyvinyl chloride markt over the forecast period.
