                                     Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the oldest forms of thermoplastic polymer. It is a vinyl polymer

   production is expected to         widely produced plastic after polyethylene and polypropylene. Nearly 60% of the PVC produced
   reach 55.2 million tons in        globally is used in the construction industry in making pipes, tubes, frames for doors and windows,

                                     well as pharmaceutical packaging for making bottles and bottle caps. PVC is also used in electrical
                                     applications as an insulating material for wires and cables.
                                     The global installed capacity for PVC production is currently 47.6 million tons. It is expected to grow
                                     to 59.1 million tons per year in 2020. Global PVC production 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.

                                     Widely Used Process for PVC Production
                                     Natural gas is the main feedstock used in 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 globally. The other important production processes are microsuspension
                                     polymerization, emulsion polymerization and mass polymerization.
                                     Vinnolit and Solvay are the Leading Global Technologies for PVC Production
                                     The most widely used technologies for PVC production are Vinnolit and Solvay. Oxy Vinyls,
                                     Formosa and Supcon Automation are the next major technologies used for PVC production.
