India Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End Use, Type, Grade, Distribution Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030

PVC demand in India witnessed an impressive CAGR in the historic years and is projected to achieve a healthy CAGR of over 6.81% during 2015-2030. Polyvinyl Chloride comes under the category of synthetic polymers and are a part of vinyl chain. These polymers are highly desired in various industries owing to its non-flammability, ease of processing and molding and superior strength. Pipe grade PVC accounts for over 40 per cent of the overall demand for PVC in the country as the product is extensively used in the production of water-distribution and underground irrigation pipes. Government policies in the budget of FY 20 for improvisation in facilities for piped water supply in rural areas has given a much-needed push in the demand for PVC in the domestic market. Another large percentage of PVC demand comes from construction industry where it is utilized in the manufacturing of profiles, films and insulation. However, due to economic slowdown, halt in the construction activities has led to a considerable decline of PVC demand in the last few years. In contrast, demand for PVC in packaging applications has witnessed a significant growth after the outbreak of Coronavirus in the final quarter of FY 20. The rising awareness for maintaining good hygiene as a preventive measure of the virus has made the food and beverage industry to increase the utilization of flexible packaging to assure complete safety of the packaged products. The demand for PVC in the packaging sector is likely to further propel in the coming years as there are low chances for the complete abatement of the virus till a proper vaccine is attained.
The total capacity of PVC in India is around 1640 KTA with Reliance Industries holding maximum share in its production in comparison to the other four leading players.The domestic production of PVC is unable to consolidate the massive demand for the product hence, around 50 per cent of the demand in India is being met through imports.

To sufficiently meet the requirements, All India Plastic Manufacturers and Association (AIPMA) urged the government in Dec 2019 to cut a significant percentage of the high anti-dumping duty imposed on the product in the past few years. However, the association has laid stress to impose floor pricing on finished plastic goods being imported from China and other major producing countries in order to restrain under invoicing from foreign manufacturers.
As Vinyl Monomer and Chlorine are the major raw materials required to produce PVC, production and availability of these two in India also plays crucial role in determining the yearly production of PVC in the country. In the coming five years, Indian market of PVC is anticipated to witnesses a healthy growth after the government scheme of self-reliant India, emphasizing on the domestic production and consumption of products.
