The market for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is anticipated to register a CAGR of around 3.5% during the forecast period. One of the major factors driving the growth of the market studied is the rising usage of PVC from the automotive industry. The rising demand from construction and increasing applications in the healthcare sector have also significantly contributed to the growth of the market studied.

- The focus on minimizing carbon emissions and enhancing fuel economy, by way of reducing the weight of a vehicle, has given PVC the impetus as a lightweight material for manufacturing automobiles, thereby augmenting the growth of the market.
- The shortage in the supply of feedstock, due to closing of facilities and increase in prices of various products, is likely to hinder the PVC market growth in the coming years.
- Major automotive companies are involved in the development of viable electric vehicles. Governments are extending a helping hand to electric vehicle manufacturers, with increasing pressure of global warming. Electric vehicles significantly decrease the consumption of fossil fuels, and thus, avoid the emission of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon dioxide, and other harmful gases. They are an efficient, eco-friendly alternative to the present-day automobiles. These factors are projected to act as an opportunity for the market in the future.

These pipes are widely used for pipeline systems for water, waste, and drainage, as these pipes suffer no build-up, scaling, corrosion, or pitting, and they provide smooth surfaces reducing energy requirements for pumping.
- PVC flooring has benefits, such as durability, freedom of aesthetic effects, ease in installation, easy to clean, recyclability, etc. Thus, its flooring is used over years. Another area in the building and construction industry, where PVC is used is in roofing. It is used for its low maintenance requirements, and because it lasts more than 30 years.
- The increasing infrastructure construction activities is the major driver in Asia-Pacific. This, coupled with the entry of major construction players from the European Union into lucrative market in countries, like China, has further fueled the growth of this the industry.
- All the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the global market, during the forecast period.
