Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Market Key Players Perspective: 

AkzoNobel is about to start supplying the first ever emulsion based organic peroxides in the US for manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Rob van de Graaf, Director of Sales, America’s - Polymer Chemistry explains “Organic peroxides often decompose at very low temperatures, which can lead to combustion when not stored or handled properly. Emulsions contain water, significantly reducing the chance of combustion, and increasing the safety of transport, storage and handling. The improved safety characteristics also allow for bulk storage and fully automated handling, reducing the risk of manual operation mishaps”.
Some of the key players mentioned in this report are Pau Tai Industrial Corporation (Taiwan), hin-Etsu Chemical Co. Ltd. (Japan), Formosa Plastics Corp. (U.S.), Songwon Industrial Co. Ltd. (South Korea), Occidental Petroleum Corp. (U.S.), Solvay SA (Belgium), Ineos Group Ltd. (Switzerland), AkzoNobel N.V. (Netherlands), Clariant AG (Switzerland), Arkema SA (France), BASF SE (Germany) and Baerlocher GmbH (Germany) among others. 

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Market Trends:

  • A spanish based company Molecor has developed a new molecularly oriented PVC pipe called PVC-O. These PVCO pipes offer higher impact resistance than the conventional PVC pipes. Apart from the impact resistance, they also provide high corrosion resistance, increased hydraulic capacity, good ductility, energy efficient and low installation costs.
  • Researchers from Ohio University, USA, have invented a new synthetic leather material that repels water and oil based liquids. Synthetic leather is made from fabric coated with polyurethane (PU) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These both can be molded into flat sheets with grooves which gives them leather like texture. 
  • Researchers from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Mashhad, Iran, have formulated a new polyvinyl chloride (PVC) - thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) blend membranes for applications in Nano filtration. These membrane have shown good hydrophilic characteristics with high water flux and low threshold pressure for showing permeability. This research proved that PVC-TPU blend membranes are a good choice for membrane fabrication
  • Researchers from São Paulo University, Brazil, have made a new polyaniline-polyvinyl chloride (PVC) blended coatings especially for protecting the corrosion of carbon steel. After the corrosion analysis on a 1010 steel protected with polyaniline-polyvinyl chloride (PVC) blended coating, the results have shown that this coating offered an improved corrosion resistance when compared to bare 1010 steel in both saline and acidic medium. Therefore, this coating can be used as a low cost alternative for the existing corrosion protection polymer like polyaniline (PANI). 
  • Flexible PVC in Europe is applied on large scale to manufacture wires and cables. PVC cables account for around 7% of the PVC resins manufactured and for 46% of the cables market in Europe. The demand of PVC cables is growing due to its temperature handling capability and insulation properties. The PVC resin is simultaneously on high demand for satisfying the cable manufacturers.
  • Indian leader in PVC manufacturing Finolex industries has indicated that it will focus on the non-agri segment, especially housing, given the government focus on housing to meet USD 1 billion sales target by 2020.  The rise in agri industry is simultaneously expected but the growth rate would be slow. The current production capacity of all the finolex plants together is 2.72 lakh tons PVC resins and 2.9 lakh tonne of pipes & fittings per annum which is expected to double by 2020.
