					Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Supply Dynamics to 2020 - China Emerges as the Leader in
Global Production

The Capacity and Production of PVC is Expected to Significantly Increase in the
Forecast Period

The global installed capacity for PVC production is currently 47.5 million tons per year.
It is expected to grow to 59 million tons per year in 2020. The PVC production in world
has grown from 24.7 million tons in 2000 to 32.3 million tons in 2009. It is expected to
reach around 55.2 million tons in 2020.

Natural gas is the major feedstock used for the production of PVC followed by Naphtha.
Coal based derivatives are a newly emerging feedstock for PVC production. The
suspension polymerization technique is the most widely used production process to
produce PVC and accounts for more than 78% of the PVC produced in the world. The
other important production processes are microsuspension polymerization, emulsion
polymerization and mass polymerization.

The most widely used technology for PVC production are Vinnolit and Solvay. Oxy
Vinyls, Formosa and Supcon Automation are the next major technologies used for PVC
production.

The Asia-Pacific region accounts for around 54.7% of the global installed PVC capacity.
The capacity and production of PVC has grown very rapidly in China in the past decade.
The export market of China for PVC has also grown very rapidly. The country has
emerged as the largest producer and exporter of PVC in the world. Europe has the second
largest PVC capacity in the world and North America stands third. The PVC capacity in
Europe and North America is expected to be almost stagnant in the coming years.

The company with leading PVC capacity on the world is Shin-Etsu Chemical Company.
Formosa Plastics Group has the second largest PVC capacity share in the world. Georgia
Gulf Corporation, Westlake Chemical Corporation and Solvay SA are the next major
PVC producers in the world.
