Polyvinyl chloride has been around longer than most plastics. It is one of the most commonly used thermoplastic polymers across the globe. PVC is a naturally white and very brittle plastic. Due to the versatility factor, PVC can be as rigid as industrial pipes, as pliable as plastic wrap, and as thin and flexible as wall-covering. It can also be completely clear or matched to any colour desired. PVC was accidently discovered twice, once in 1832 by French chemist Henri Victor Regnault and then rediscovered in 1872 by a German man named Eugene Baumann. PVC is used extensively across a wide range of technical, industrial, and everyday applications. In India, a surge in applications for PVC in the healthcare industry is the major driving force for the PVC market. In addition to that, government policies in the budget of financial year 2020 for enhancement in the facilities for piped water supply in rural areas have provided a much-needed push to the PVC industry across the country. Further, India is highly dependent on PVC imports to fulfill the imbalance between demand and production. These demands for PVC are anticipated to be in healthy digits during the forecast period, which will force more PVC to be imported. According to the report titled "India Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Market Outlook, 2027", published by Bonafide Research, the PVC market is projected to grow at 11.89% CAGR by 2026–27. In recent years, the strongest PVC consumption has been concentrated in India. The common drivers of consumption tend to be a large population base with a stable political climate. Economical and versatile, PVC is used in various industries such as agriculture, construction/infrastructure & housing, packaging, automotive, electrical & electronics, healthcare, and fast-moving consumer goods. Among these industries, construction, infrastructure, and housing are projected to acquire more than 35% of the market share during the forecast period. PVC makes a major contribution to the quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness of construction materials. PVC also offers low environmental impacts compared to other components. In addition to the new projects, PVC is also widely used in refurbishment, where it often replaces traditional materials such as metal and wood. Further, as PVC is durable, dependable, and light in weight, flexible PVC plays an important role in the packaging industry.

India ranks second worldwide in farm output. By adopting PVC in this sector, the Indian market is projected to achieve higher momentum by 2026-27. PVC pipes are primarily needed in agriculture for the purpose of transportation and storage of water and act as useful equipment for hydroponic systems and irrigation across the field. According to the report, the Indian PVC market is segmented into six prominent grades that include piping & fittings, flooring, films, sheets, wire & cable insulation, and window profiles. Among these grade types, the piping & fitting segment is projected to lead the market with more than 70% market share. In India, PVC pipes are majorly used in the production of water-distribution and underground irrigation pipes. On the other hand, with a well-established status all over the world, PVC windows are gaining higher momentum with more and more usage in India in major cities to begin with. This segment is projected to grow at a significant growth rate during the forecast period. Based on the polymerization technique, the Indian PVC market is segmented into three types: suspension, bulk mass, and emulsion. In India, about 80% of PVC production involves suspension polymerization. Further, based on the distribution channel, direct/industrial sales are anticipated to lead the market during the forecast period, followed by retail and other sales channels. As Vinyl Monomer and chlorine are the major raw materials required to produce PVC, the production and availability of these two in India also plays a crucial role in determining the yearly production of PVC in the country. The Indian PVC market is anticipated to witness healthy growth after the government scheme of self-reliant India, emphasising domestic production and consumption of products. Major market players for PVC in India include Reliance Industries, Finolex Industries Limited, Chemplast Sanmar Limited, DCW Limited, DCM Shriram Limited, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Formosa Plastics Group, and Mistui Chemicals. No new local PVC resin production capacities are coming in the next couple of years. However, both Adani’s and Reliance’s proposed PVC plants are set to commence commercial production only in 2024. Further, the report includes pricing and raw material analysis, demand-supply ratio, major consumers and leading importers present in the India PVC market. These topics can provide deep knowledge about the PVC market in India.
Covid-19 Impact: The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an economic crisis across the globe. India was also heavily impacted during the outbreak. Since the rise in the demand for PVC is directly linked to the GDP, this situation has been a major challenge for the Indian economy. The major PVC-consuming industries, such as electrical, automotive, and building and construction, were severely hit by the pandemic. Due to the lockdown and social distancing scenario, production units were at a halt and the supply chain was also disrupted. However, by the end of 2020, manufacturers will have regained their progress at a higher pace. Also, a change in consumer preference and growing adoption of PVC in various new applications are projected to fuel the market's growth by 2026–27. Major Companies present in the market: Reliance Industries Limited, Finolex Industries Limited, Chemplast Sanmar Limited, DCW Limited, DCM Shriram Limited, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, Formosa Plastics Group, Mistui Chemicals, Hanwha Chemical Corporation, LG Chem Considered in the report: • Geography: India • Historical year: 2016-20 • Base year: 2021 • Estimated Year: 2022 • Forecast year: 2023-27 Based on types: • Suspension Polymerization • Bulk Mass Polymerization • Emulsion Polymerization
