Global polyvinyl chloride (PVC) demand registered a significant decrease because of the world economic crisis during 2008-2009, especially in North America and Europe. However, the global PVC demand has recovered and currently is keeping to a growing trend.

The largest chunk of the total PVC output volume is utilized in the construction segment. In 2013, the key PVC application spheres included the production of pipes, profiles, tubing, sheets and rigid film. Moreover, the PVC was consumed in the production of flooring, cables, coatings and other materials.

The world PVC production stood at the 38.5 million tonnes mark in 2013, which is 3% up from the previous year. Presently, Asia Pacific ranks the 1st in the world in terms of PVC output, followed by North America and Europe. In 2013, China, the USA, South Korea, Germany and Japan were the leading PVC producers. During the next five years, the overall output of PVC is forecast to rise by 4% per year, with China taking lead in the market in terms of production capacity.
