Robust Growth in the Asian Construction Sector to Stimulate the PVC Market

IndexBox has just published a new report: 'World - Polyvinyl Chloride (In Primary Forms) - Market Analysis, Forecast, Size, Trends, and Insights.' Here is a summary of the report's key findings.

The negative impact of the COVID crisis on the PVC market is offset by growing demand in the Asian construction industry and the global packaging market.

Key Trends and Insights

The rapidly expanding construction industries in China and India to become the main drivers of PVC consumption growth over the medium term. in India, construction growth has been accelerated significantly due to the government's "Housing for All" program. Domestic PVC production cannot fully meet the high demand in India, so more than half of the consumed PVC is imported. (IndexBox estimates)
