London, UK (PRWEB) December 29, 2011

The total vinyl chloride (VCM) production is widely forecast to grow in the coming years with the tempo of 2.5-3% annually. The key producers are concentrated in the Asia-Pacific region – here more than 50% of the material is produced and traded. Nevertheless the major countries here stick to the outdated vinyl chloride production technology. Acetylene route for vinyl chloride is considered as largely polluting and energy consuming, but is still in practice on a number of big facilities. At the same time China, for example, owns large coal fields that are advantageous and more profitable in comparison with crude oil VCM production. Nevertheless if the price for oil goes rigidly up, China is certain to expand its acetylene based vinyl chloride production plants.

Detailed analytical examination of the vinyl chloride market is in the focus of the new market research report “Vinyl Chloride (VCM) 2011 World Market Outlook and Forecast up to 2016”. The report offers a deep view into the market from the global, regional and country perspective.

The study analyses the vinyl chloride market through its development and offers information on the past, present and future landscape. It covers data on the vinyl chloride production and consumption volumes, trade dynamics, registered prices. The study features market projections that demonstrate how the market is set to develop, what trends will be the most prominent and what will the prices and volumes be. The projections are presented through 2016.
