The global PVC resins market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of X% through the forecast period of 2015-2020 owing to the numerous advantages it offers over other polymer resins such as high durability, versatility, economic viability, chemical resistance, recyclability, thermal and electrical insulation and so on.
